Vlad waiting pensively at Apex for the re-check on his jaw abscess with osteomyelitis… it’s good news! Healing is on track, he’ll finish his course of Azithromycin, we’ll keep the wound clean, and hope that this kicks it once and for all.
He’s been on supplemental Critical Care since we took him in a couple years ago (after his first jaw abscess), but he’s getting more right now to get his weight up. He has a huge appetite, eats everything we give him, and eats his Critical Care right out of the bowl. 🙂
Kathy and crew have been busy setting up for the Pet Lover Show out in Abbotsford this weekend! It looks fabulous! The empty spot on the table is for Bonnie McMurray’s Nutrinoms sales display. (Excellent bunny treats!)

Rabbitats in Richmond BC, is looking for volunteers who can help build and landscape our sanctuary. We need skilled and unskilled people who don’t mind getting lots of fresh air and exercise (with a little bunny love in between).
We’ll be doing groundwork, building fences, bunny houses and sheds and eventually planting a garden.
We’re also looking for some donated tools and supplies for our rabbit sanctuary.
We’re in immediate need of some pegboard, but also the following tools:
– long handled axe
– heavy duty prybar
– angle grinder
– Milwaukee saw blades
If you can help, please post, contact us at email@example.com or message us!
This mini lop was found in an alley at East 45th and Gladstone in Vancouver in the snow this morning. He appears to be a neutered male.We’re hoping that he is a much loved lost rabbit and wasn’t just dumped there. Animal control in Vancouver is apparently still not taking rabbits even if they’re strays. The poor family that picked him up from the alley had a dog that wanted to eat him and couldn’t keep him.They fell in love with him even in the short time he was with them and couldn’t just put him back where they found him. We are totally full, we took him for the night but we can’t keep him either. He is a very sweet bunny!
Happy Valentine’s Day ❤️❤️❤️ from some of our bonded boy-girl pairs.
Photo #1 — Dick & Jane (both about 1 year)
Photo #2 — Lucky & Midnight (both under 1 year)
Photo #3 — Dolly & Lamby (will be 6 years on April 1st)
Photo #4 — Ginger & Jackson (both about 5 years)
Photo #5 — Picasso & Warhol (both about 2.5 years)
Note: with rescued rabbits, most ages are unknown, we give it our best guess
Gilbert is an incredibly sweet boy who now has a new “pad” thanks to Zane‘s Zoo Michaels! ❤️ He is now able to walk forward, not just scoot backward as he was initially doing. He’s very unsteady on his feet still, but seldom falls over… unless he’s climbing over things and exploring his environment, which is also encouraging! He’s finished his antibiotics but still has a couple weeks of Panacur to go. Deanna gives him deep tissue massage every day, which he doesn’t fuss about and seems to enjoy, giving lots of kisses in return. 😘
