Summer was marking her territory and Blaze was going back over everything and marking it as his haha. Just like a married couple.  Both are great…getting lots of petting.

ahhhhh, A+ homes can't get any better…  : )

We love you Michelle and family!

Dahling … you look tired.


*Bunny Purrs*  "Darling, you look like you need some relaxation.  What could be more relaxing than petting an especially soft bunny?  That's right…nothing!  Now, lavish attention on me and I will return the favor with snuggles and perhaps a binky."

Heehee :)  This is Ms. Snugglesworth (umm AWESOME name).  She's an adoptable house rabbit with our friends Rabbit Match in LA.  You can read all about Ms Snugglesworth on her Petfinder page here.  Good luck softy!  :)

He spent some time meeting the rabbit-in-charge, my dwarf Nibbler, but he didn't seem fazed by him.  Nibbler of course had to assert his dominance and do a little grunting and digging to let Linus know who's boss, lol!  The cats are curious about their new housemate but have welcomed him by sharing some of their favorite resting spots.

I can't tell you how happy I am that we chose to adopt rather than going back to the breeder and buying new!  I don't think we could have gotten such a well mannered bun anywhere else.  You guys do a wonderful job with all your rabbits.  Let me tell you, it was hard for me to leave with just one!

from Linus' new mom    we LIVE for emails like this one.  : )

Breaking news: Toilet paper changes could impact bunnies everywhere

OK, this isn't a joke.

BNN reader Tina sent in this story from USA Today, which could have serious implications for those of us who entertain our bunnies with cardboard TP rolls. Time to start conserving those rolls….

Kimberly-Clark rolls out tube-free Scott toilet paperThe toilet paper roll is about to undergo its biggest change in 100 years: going tubeless.

On Monday, Kimberly-Clark, one of the world's biggest makers of household paper products, will begin testing Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper at Walmart and Sam's Club stores throughout the Northeast. If sales take off, it may introduce the line nationally and globally — and even consider adapting the technology into its paper towel brands.

No, the holes in the rolls aren't perfectly round. But they do fit over TP spindles and come with this promise: Even the last piece of toilet paper will be usable — without glue stuck on it.

Suddenly, there's news in the $9 billion — but stagnant — toilet paper market. More important, it's got a "green" halo.

The 17 billion toilet paper tubes produced annually in the USA account for 160 million pounds of trash, according to Kimberly-Clark estimates, and could stretch more than a million miles placed end-to-end. That's from here to the moon and back — twice. Most consumers toss, rather than recycle, used tubes, says Doug Daniels, brand manager at Kimberly-Clark. "We found a way to bring innovation to a category as mature as bath tissue," he says.

He won't disclose the tubeless technology used but says it's a special winding process. A similar process is used on tissue the company sells to businesses but not to consumers.

Behind the marketing push is a growing consumer demand for environmentally friendly products.

One environmentalist applauds the move. "It's a positive example of how companies are seeking creative ways to reduce environmental impact," says Darby Hoover of the Natural Resources Defense Council. But more relevant than nixing the tubes would be more recycled content in its paper, Hoover says. While Scott Naturals normally has 40% recycled content, this test product does not — but future versions will, Daniels says.

Bunnies do not approve of tube-free TP

Hoover says she hopes other toilet tissue makers follow Kimberly-Clark's lead. How soon that may happen is unclear. Procter & Gamble, maker of top-seller Charmin, declined to comment.

This rabbit, according to his owner, was shedding his winter coat in the shape of a rabbit.

Meta Pareidolia of the Day: Summer says: “Our bunny Vladimir Putin is losing summer coat at the moment… we noticed that it seems to be falling out in a familiar pattern.” [thanks summer!]

Thanks, Danielle, for sending this in.  : )
