Hi! The Bunny's Review, with Alchemy of Scrawl, has a Books for Bunnies event that goes through August 11, to raise money for the House Rabbit Society :) You can donate to the HRS, and if you do, they will send you a thank-you email for you to forward to Books for Bunnies to enter the drawing for a book. If you are an author of a print or ebook, you can donate a book for people to win! They already have over 100 books donated!
I bought a cage initially, because I thought that's what you do when you get a bunny, but the cage was pretty much left behind very quickly! We kept it around for the rabbits to hop into as a den, and after a while stored it away since the bunnies found plenty of other places in the house that were snug and safe and dark. That was 14 years ago, and since then we have had many bunnies as part of our family, almost all of whom lived to a long, happy age. Our oldest, Cricket, died at 11 years old, and we met a bunny who was 16! This is so much longer than most bunnies get, since most people are understandably naive when they get a rabbit. We sure were, and I am SO glad we had House Rabbit Society! They have a book on rabbit care which will tell you all about food, health, rabbit-trained vets, bunny-proofing the house, and also you can find out a lot on their web site.
So this is my request to please consider donating to House Rabbit Society! ALL donations go only to the HRS, and you can win a book from a variety of genres (see a partial list of books at Bea's Book Nook, link below). If I still can, I'm going to be donating my book. And if you want a bunny as part of your own family, House Rabbit Society can help you learn ways to adopt one, instead of going to a pet store - tons of bunnies need homes because like any other critter, they can be a handful!

Here are a few pics of our rabbits:
Hefmeister Luvbug chewing on my textbooks.
Max being preened by Baby Duckworth.
Fawn helping herself to lettuce.
Fawn taking a nap. She earned it, chewing on the table.
Max as an old man. You can see his toy cat, Ursala, in the mirror. He always cuddled with her. Max was an unusual rabbit - he LOVED to be held and cuddled. Most rabbits love pats, but with their feet firmly on the ground! :D
Whoops not a rabbit.
Remember to visit Books for Bunnies and House Rabbit Society! Thanks!
