Thanks ... they are very sweet, but they are getting incontinent with age (they used to be pretty good about using a litter box).

Thanks! They remain very cute at an age when they should be getting crusty looking ... Mallow-boy has eyelashes like a Disney girl. (Poor Brownie has no real lashes because she's a mini-rex ... her few whiskers are short and sort of crimped.)

I didn't realize domestic bunnies lived that long. They are cuties.

(IRL, the cat would probably try to chase the bunnies, but in my icon, she's merely saying hello.)

House Rabbit Society says "Rabbits kept indoors with proper care can expect to live between 9-12 years." So they are indeed elderly.

They used to be terrified of dogs (they'd freak out if they could smell dogs on our hands), but the lady who takes care of them when we travel has a couple of dogs, so they got used to it. I don't know if they've ever encountered a cat.

Eeee! Bunnies! So cute; thank you for sharing. You make me want bunnies.

And I didn't know bunnies could live for 10-1/2 years-- is that long-lived for bunnies because you love them so much, or is that not out of the ordinary?

"Rabbits kept indoors with proper care can expect to live between 9-12 years." - House Rabbit Society

(HRS has everything you need to know to keep bunnies.)

I think that it's a combination of the fact that they have each other, they have plenty of room to exercise (a whole, albeit small, room when we're home and awake), and we feed them the right stuff. They eat mostly hay and fresh greens, with a couple of tablespoons of hay-based rabbit chow per day, plus occasional treats like strawberry tops, raw oats, bits of carrot, maple twigs, etc.

So far, they seem to be in awe of the big playhouse. They'll run through it, but they haven't started chewing on it at all. And they haven't figured out the second level yet, either, although we tried putting them straight into it. They jumped down through the internal holes in the floor, but as far as I can tell, they haven't tried going back up on their own. This is despite the fact that they like to jump on top of their nestbox ... .

The willow cube, on the other hand, has started losing little bits all over the floor. They'll probably eat most of them eventually ... .

I should never look at the Bunny Bytes Website!

Very cute! We had a rabbit when I was a kid but it turned out I was allergic to him, breaking out in hives all over my body any time I handled him. Because of that, we ended up having to find another home for him. :( I was heartbroken.
