A little bunny photoshoot

starsky black and white 2

Little miss loves the camera. So when I got it out to test my lens before holiday, she decided to do her best posing, and I do mean posing. Its like she can hear the lens growling into focus and finds her best angle. Its pretty funny to watch.

These are a few of the results…

I spy

When I open the fridge, I normally hear little footsteps and suddenly…

I spy a bunny.

It is a shame that my fridge currently only has cheese, butter, wine and a sad looking vegetable.. ha! (going away on holiday tomorrow).

My bunny must-haves

25

Because, obviously a castle is number one on the list….

So this totally adorable picture does have a reason¬†because it is part of the growing list of thing I have bought for Starsky over the years to keep her entertained, safe and spoilt!! So, I decided to make a list of the things I would recommend to buy a little outdoor, urban bunny. (Obviously excluding food and water) The basics are; a hutch, somewhere to hide, toys/ ‘boredom breakers’, a water bottle or bowl and a food bowl.

But here are my top five favourites – in no particular order – of items for one happy bunny:

Naturals: Trio of Fun Balls

Roughly £3 (Pets at Home)

Hilarious name, I gave it three stars as Starsky point blank refuses to engage with the 3rd ball (the completed wooden one) but the other two are a big hit! 2 out of 3: 3 stars!

toy 1

Rosewood: Pop up tent for Rabbits and Guinea Pigs

Roughly £4 (Waitrose, Pets at Home)

My one does not have the little window you see in the picture below, but nevertheless, Starsky is obsessed with this tent. It was originally bought as a bit of a novelty but now I replace it every year and add on tunnels and she goes mad for it! Her favourite bit is jumping in, knocking it over and then popping her head up. Entertainment value : 5 stars!

Rosewood: Animal Pod Carrier РLarge

Roughly £8 (Argos, Petplanet)

Definitely ensure this is the large carrier, the other two are too small for rabbits! This has been the best buy ever. Not only does she really relax travelling in it but it doubles up as her ‘toilet’ when she is indoors. She loves sleeping in it, pooing in it and apart from the little nibble it has survived 4 years! Best buy: 5 stars!

 

toy 3 rosewood travel

p.s. three pictures to prove we have one happy bunny customer:

Ceramic carrot shaped bowl

Roughly £5 (Amazon)

If you are going to buy a food bowl, I really recommend going for ceramic. We did have a plastic bowl but Starsky decided to eat most of it so I bought this one and it has lasted really well. Plus, it is adorable! Everyday use: 4 stars!

toy 4 ceramic bowl

Woodlands: Seagrass Rabbit Hideaway

Roughly £10 (Pets at home, Petplanet)

Last but not least, I bought this hideaway/ hunt as she really loved her outdoor hideaway so much. It fits into the hutch as its a really decent size and she used to sleep it in all cosy. Only problem was, she decided to do her own renovations and ate 3 of the walls completely… then it caved in! Completely destroyed, but completely loved: 4 stars!

toy 5 seagrass

And those are my top five! If you have any other ones, let me know. I will also add in a later blog post some of the ones I wouldn’t recommend.

Bunny Brunch

9

One of the things I google most often is “Can my rabbit eat [insert food]?”

Most of the time whilst holding said food in my hands with a bunny gazing at me…

But it is super duper important to know what she can/ can’t eat. Especially when I think she would eat most of my food if she could! (When I had a friend over the other day, she grabbed her pizza takeaway box and dragged it across the floor to get at a Margherita pizza!)

I’m no expert, but the essentials¬†are; LOTS OF HAY, a handful of bunny pellets (not bunny muesli) and fresh water EVERY DAY.

For other food, here is a quick run-down of the basics:

And otherwise, bunny treats (such as those treat sticks) should only be given in small doses.

Ta da!

*Small sub-note… I’m a designer, so the need to make line icon fruit and vegetables made me excited.

The first post

Meet the star of the show. This is Starsky. And this blog in intended to be a bit of jumble of things I enjoy, with her being the SUPER top of the list.

So, the introductions: Stasrky is a dutch rabbit, she is 4 years old now (2016) weighing a TINY 1.8kg as dutch rabbits tend to be slightly smaller than their English relatives. She loves eating pellets, grass, sleeping, having a bath, pooing, running, having cuddles, sitting on carpets, nibbling on headphones, being outside, licking stranger’s knees and she has free reign of my flat which means I quite often have her little face in my face trying to snatch popcorn from my mouth! (Please note: She has not succeeded¬†yet!)

I have recently moved to Birmingham city centre and as a result, little miss has come with me and now enjoys urban living! I am no expert, but I am ridiculously obsessed with Starsky so I am sharing how I care for her along with other snippets.
