Starting the British Bunnies website has been an amazing journey. I’ve had lots of fun working on it and met lots of lovely like minded people who just want to promote the welfare of rabbits.
My own rabbits, Pepper and Dylan, had inspired me to start the site as I loved caring for them and learning about their little personalities but I was so frustrated that I kept being asked if I could rehome just one more rabbit (many times!). I wanted to provide information for those thinking of taking on a rabbit and those who are enjoying their new companions. The site continues to attract visitors, no doubt partly due to the the rabbit boarding directory which is full of businesses dedicated to caring for our furry friends during our holidays.
However, in the time that has passed since British Bunnies was launched there have been many changes for me, including two babies who are growing fast and the prospect of a new business, I am sad to say that I cannot carry on with the running of British Bunnies. Time is not on my side to promote the website and generate the income that it needs from advertising to pay for website hosting.
The current hosting status is paid for until 27th of July 2015. On this day the website will either go offline, OR, perhaps one of you would like to take on the responsibility and running of the site? I would love to hear from you if you are interested in buying the page for a small fee. It has lots of potential in the right hands!
Whatever happens, the Facebook and Twitter accounts will remain open and I’d love to hear from you all. Pepper and Dylan will keep making an appearance and I always enjoy seeing your pictures.
Thank you for being part of the British Bunnies project and if you run a bunny boarding company I wish you all the best for the future.

Pepper has just had an extreme grooming session including a trip to the vets for a full check over. She stopped grooming herself and became quite messy, the vet concludes that she might have arthritis. So, today Pepper starts some medication for arthritis to trial. Almost eight years old and now looking pretty, here is Pepper enjoying a treat smothered in her first dose of medication.

Brrrr the temperature is dropping and it is now the count down until Christmas. Just 25 days to go and we are very excited as we have two toddlers at home just desperate to meet Santa and rip open those parcels. Pepper and Dylan will of course be joining them and joining in the festivities! They are seven years old now and still just as big a part of the family as they were before we had children.
So, lets get in the festive spirit and start sharing our Christmassy pictures. Are your rabbits getting into the festive spirit with you? Lets see how. Please post your pictures on our Facebook page, Twitter page or you can e-mail them to email@example.com and we can post them for you. Our favourite pictures will be posted here on the blog in the run up to Christmas. All for fun and sharing how happy our bunnies can be indoors.
Remember, rabbits are not an appropriate Christmas gift and we want to spread the word. We may add a statement to your photo to help us spread the word, such as ‘Rabbits are for life and not just for Christmas’. Please let us know if you do not want your photo to be used.

It’s been a while since I shared pictures of my bundles of fluff so here are Pepper and Dylan relaxing together. Happy Bunnies and happy home.

It’s that time of the year again for Pepper to go for a general anaesthetic to get her teeth filed and her tear ducts flushed out. How nervous I will be waiting for her return, I think I get more nervous every time due to her age as she is now seven and a half. Does anyone else go through this?
