Kingston Animal Rescue has Rescued a Very Special Case of Rabbits

WMCH would like to extend a courtesy posting for a fellow rescue in Ontario, Canada who rescued 5 bonded house rabbits recently. They really need a loving, rabbit savvy, forever home where they can remain together. Here is their story and contact info if you are interested in adopting or donating to their cause:

Kingston Animal Rescue has rescued a very special case of rabbits:

Emily, Amanda, Rocky, Remi and Fluffy or better know as Kingston Animal Rescue's "Fabulous Five" are a family of rabbits who were surrendered to us when their owner could no longer look after them. They came to us from a home where they lived together in cramped conditions. They learned to be with one another and get along despite the lack of proper housing. When they first arrived in their foster home they remained huddled together in a corner for the first few days before they tentatively started to explore their new found space. They are now much more adventurous and love to binky and play together or on their own.

Our Fabulous Five are an interesting mix of breeds and personalities but somehow this little group co-habitates extremely well and can often be found grooming one another and relaxing next to each other. These wonderful bunnies are a bonded group who have been together since they were babies. They would love nothing more than to find a very special home where they could remain together and thrive together.

We are urgently looking for a home for them. Traveling arrangements may be able to be arranged given the distance in order to find a safe forever home where they can stay together.

Growing Fresh Orchard Grass

Orchard grass for rabbits......easy to grow! A small 4'x8' plot, filled with good compost, and $1 in seed from your local seed store. We harvest grass once or twice a week for the summer and it has worked out great as a treat for the 3 rabbits we have.

Cut one eight foot section into two pieces and lie all of the boards in a place of your yard that gets a decent amount of sun and shade. Fill the box with compost, sprinkle seed down, rake the seed in gently, water, and wait. Continue to water occasionally until the grass starts to grow.

If your rabbit doesn't eat a lot of hay, this might be a great alternative to wear down teeth.

Rabbits Do Sleep......Deeply!

4 Baby Chicks!

It was interesting to see the baby chickens tilt their heads up like this to drink!

Litter Box Training a Cavy (Guinea Pig)

When you bring your piggie to his new forever home, allow him to adjust to his new environment gradually. Place a towel over one half the cage for the first week as to provide extra security. After observing which side/corner of the cage piggie likes to eliminate into, place a litter box into the corner of the cage.

Allow piggie to come out of his cage on his own to explore but limit the area at first to a smaller space near the litter box and cage so that he does not have far to go if he needs it. Place some stray poopies into the litter box to help him understand that is his latrine area. Keep the litter box clean, but not pristine at first so that he may smell a small area to help him understand.Recycled newspaper litters are very absorbent and safe. Examples are Carefresh and Yesterday's News. You may use white vinegar in a spray bottle to clean the plastic box after removing the soiled portion, about every other day. As he continues to use it more and more consistently you may expand his exploration area. If he has run of a large, multi-room area you should offer multiple boxes outside his cage in different rooms. Be sure to clean up accidents quickly with an enzymatic cleaner such as nature's miracle to discourage re-marking. If there are other non-litter box trained pets in the same area, the training may take longer. One tip would be to place his hay into his litter box to encourage him to sit in it for longer periods. Generally the larger the litter box, the better. Good luck and happy training:).

"Looking at animals in the shelters - cast-offs of society. In their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal." Angrily, I said, "God this is terrible! Do something?" God replied softly. "I have done something, I created You." (Author unknown)

Memorial - Angel January 13, 2010

Angel was a sweet bunny girl who was about 1 year old. She had come from a sad situation originally but quickly adapted and loved the life as a house rabbit once in foster care. Angel was best friends with fellow foster bunny Chocolate. They snuggled together and were so adorable. Angel will be missed very much all of us. Through we cannot understand why some lives come to us for only a short while, we are happy for any moments we can share together.
