John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” team beats Mike Pence in the battle of the Bundo bunnies.
“Last Week Tonight” gives the Pence family’s new bunny book a gay makeover.
Last month around this time I was writing about how my wife and I and our animals were facing eviction. As I sit down to write this... that hasn't changed. But that isn't what I wanted to talk about this time. This time I want to tell you that my rabbit has died.
Last November, at the ripe old age of 9, our female rabbit died. Actually she may have been hare rather than a rabbit, or possibly a bit of both. Either way she left a hole much bigger than her tiny bulk. As Rabbit Awareness Week is upon us I hoped it might help some of you understand a little better if I tell you how we went about filling it.
Let's just take a moment to remember Honey Bunny. She was a gentle little rabbit with a spring in her step. And even though she ate her own poo (very common in rabbits apparently), we loved her very much.
The festive season should always be an exciting time for all of us but please remember to consider the health and happiness
One of the best (and most fun) ways to ensure your pet stays warm is to provide lots of contact. Holidays usually mean more free time to spend with your animal companions so any excuse for a belly rub is always going to be well received - whatever the season!
Sorry to sound like a killjoy but forcing some pets to become pumpkins, pirates, or even hot dogs for amusement purposes means unnecessary stress, resulting in abnormal, unwanted, even damaging behaviours. Ill-fitting outfits can also get twisted on external objects or even your pet, leading to potential life-threatening injuries especially if left unsupervised.
Recent research from the 2015 Pets at Home Pet Report revealed that rabbits are the third most popular choice of pet for British children* and owning rabbits has proven benefits for them. In the study 72% of parents agreed that owning a pet has helped with their child's anxiety. In fact, rabbit owners in particular (60%) said that their child had become more responsible and 57% of parents also said they had seen an improvement in their children's learning difficulties since getting rabbits.
