Birthday bunnies!

Our little munchkins are enjoying their special birthday feast and posing with their new toy.
It's hard to believe that Simon and River will be starting bundergarten this year.  They grow up so fast!

Love your site! Super funny! I use puppy pee pads for my rabbit and change them through out the day (she just roams freely through the house). Are you using wood shavings? Wondering if that would be easier. Do you have to replace all the shavings everyday? Thank you!

Oh and happy birthday to your buns!

Aww,thanks!

Yes, we're using aspen shavings in their litter boxes and it works very well (good absorbancy and not much dust). We change their litter every day due to the smaller litter box size, but larger boxes wouldn't need to be cleaned as frequently or you could just scoop up the areas that are soiled. You can also use kiln-treated pine shavings. The one type to never use is cedar--it is toxic to bunnies.

Some people use wood stove pellets or recycled paper-based litter. There are lots of different options for litters to try and a range of price-points, so definitely check in your local pet/feed stores as well as online.

Hope this helps! :)

Dear Simon and River,

HAPPY HOPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I caught hell from Santa when I forgot to send you greetings yesterday. That's the first time any of us saw him really angry. He kept screaming "YOU FORGOT TO GREET MY BFFs!!!" then he started using words that I thought were Klingon but were apparently a combination of Yiddish and Swahili and quite unfit to share with polite company.

Mrs. Claus had to calm him down with a cup of hot cocoa liberally laced with Brandy and the move "The Santa Clause"...Santa loves that series for some reason. I have been duly chastised and will have to pet the reindeers for the next 8 months as penance.

I apologize for forgetting both of your 5th Birthday and once again, HOPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

With Love,

Helpful Elf

Hoppy Birthday to my favorite internet bun-couple!! Still many more years of their antics to come! Thanks for keeping us entertained, Simon and River :)

Erin Talbot said...

Awesome! Thank you for the litter tips!

Courtney said...

Aww, thank you Eugene, Helpful Elf, and Camaleao for the love and birthday wishes! I gave Simon and River lots of birthday noogies for you. By the sounds of their bunny purrs, I'd say they were some happy little campers. :)

You're very welcome, Erin! :)
