Mesmerizing bunny video

Watch bunnies hop. Keep watching. Don't stop watching....

This 8 minutes of video is somehow captivating. I think it's because of the music loop. But also, these bunnies are just too damn cute. It's like a family of SweetPeas! I just hope they don't all have her Lil' Miss Thang attitude!

And be sure to check out RabbitHouses.net, as they're the wonderful structures seen in the video. Does anyone have one? Comment and let me know how you like it.

Carpet cleaners for pet stains

If you have bunnies on any type of carpet, even the most litter-trained bunny in the world will make a mistake or two. Especially if/when you change their environment. Even a "misplaced" food or water dish may send your bunnies peeing out of the box (which is nowhere as good as thinking out of the box).

For bunny pee stains, I love Spot Shot. But it's a bit expensive when you buy it in quantity. Also, it's a spray bottle, so you never get as much as you think you will.

So I've used a lot of white vinegar, which is what I use to clean litter boxes. Vinegar is the miracle cleaner -- it dissolves bunny pee (and whatever other stain/dirty spot you have in your house) like magic with a few minutes of soaking.

On my recent shopping excursion to Stateline Pet Supply store in Plaistow, NH (about an hour from my house, but WELL WORTH the trip in savings, even with $4/gallon gas) this past weekend, I found Nature's Miracle Stain and Odor Remover. Stateline is a great store -- big 50L bags of Carefresh are $14.99 instead of $21 at, well, anywhere else.

At any rate, they had a display of Nature's Miracle. I bought a quart bottle of it for $5.49. "It's worth it if it works," I thought. Fast forward to tonight -- and my decision to buy it by the gallon next time I'm at Stateline. Nuff said.

If you have access to this cleaner by you, pick some up. It's magic for bunny carpet stains. And it's crazy quick. Soak the rug with it, full strength, wait anywhere from 2-5 minutes (and this is for set in stains!), and rub it out. Voila. Stain gone.

Paw Luxury

Paw Luxury makes me want to get a little bunny-friendly dog. One that doesn't shed, of course. (We have enough fur flying around from the lagamorphs, thank you very much!) Maybe a cockapoo or a schnoodle. Ah, a girl can dream, can't she?

Organic/earth-friendly doggie goodies. What a good idea!

The Hamsters hit it again

If you have kids and they're grumpy, play this video for them. It's Hampton and the Hamsters (famous from their hamster dance). It's instant simple cheer. (It may even make you kinda smile. A little.)
