I am a big bun who has lots of fur but not a very big tum. I like to keep myself clean, my bunwife too. I worried my mum sick when I stopped eating late the other night. GI Stasis caused by fur blocking my gut.
Mum says the strings of pearls I leave behind are a welcome sight but she can’t sell them to recover the costs.
I am the Bunny Burrows’ guard rabbit. I may be tiny. I may be cute. But I take my job very seriously. I don’t care if you have two legs or four; disturb the peace and I’ll be there. My warning thump can be heard all over the house.
Nanny Gwen says its a good job I have no front teeth. I’m not sure that I agree. I cannot bite you so I’ll have to box you instead!
The Christmas Miracles are getting ready to fly the nest and go to their furever home. They want one last party before they go so they are hosting the first fundraising auction of 2021. And they’ve made it a bumper one! An Easter extravaganza even.
Their auction can be found on our Facebook page until 9pm Sunday 7th March 2021.
What a winter it has been so far. We’ve not had one like this for 10 years. Plans keep having to be changed due to snow but the animals here do not understand the concept of a snow day!
No matter how much snow has fallen the animals in our care still need feeding, medicating and cleaning out.
We are very grateful to our dedicated volunteers who have been braving the elements and walking to Bunny Burrows to offer their services. Especially on days where the road has been impassable! Without them we would be sweeping Gwen up off the floor.
Unfortunately we have decided to cancel January’s auction. Due to high levels of COVID 19 in our small area of North Yorkshire; it is unfair for us to ask our volunteers to take so many parcels to the post office. We will review the situation for February’s auction nearer the time.
In the mean time watch this space for our next online fundraiser … coming soon to a screen in your home.
Brrrr it’s cold outside; much colder than what we are used to even here in North Yorkshire! Its causing a few unexpected problems. Eleven problems to be exact!
Eleven tortoises have been hibernating in the shed. Nothing unusual there, they’ve been successfully hibernating in there for several years. It is their home for half the year. However with no sign of this cold snap ending and temperatures dropping well below zero the shed is now too cold for them to safely hibernate.
So what to do with eleven hibernating tortoises?
They need somewhere cold but not too cold, dry and sheltered to continue their hibernation. Somewhere that is easy to access. Not to mention somewhere big enough to keep all eleven!
The answer – the conservatory!
Much to Gretel’s disgust Gwen has turned the heating off in the conservatory and barred her access. The tortoises are all neatly stacked with their names on their boxes, sleeping the winter away.
