    Sadness strikes hard

    Not needing help, just wanting to see if my thinking is correct. My Lily was found dead this morning from a prolapsed uterus that I'm pretty sure tore since there was SO much blood everywhere, (imagine a scene from a horror show). She kindled three days ago. One normal, two peanuts. Small...

    "is it friendly"

    I get asked this question frequently by rabbit buyers. And i simply don't know how to answer it. I can easily describe a rabbits behaviour and it's general attitude, but not whether or not it is friendly. to me friendly as a term directed at animals is one that doesn't make sense. People...
