I spent over three hours vacuuming the carpet floor, scrubbing the tile floor, cleaning litter boxes, rearranging favorite towels, and creating mazes out of sturdy cardboard boxes. I shook the old towels and threw them in the laundry. I washed food and water bowls and filled them.
When I got done, I was covered in bunny fluff and smelled like fresh bunny pee. I looked like a spastic colon and was sore all over.
I stood by the bunny gate and looked at the newly clean rooms. There were my bunnies, cuddled together, tuckered out after chasing each other through all the new nooks and crannies.
Kneeling on the floor, I started to pet them and smiled when they nudged each other closer into my hands. I buried my head in their velvety fur and was rewarded by the soft grinding of bunny teeth (the bunny equivalent of purring). I gently rubbed noses and cheeks and petted flanks and ears. I breathed in the fresh butterscotch smell of happy bunnies.
As I showered later, I found myself grinning and thanking God for making me a bunny mom. It was a small moment that reminded me how very fortunate I am.
With this revelation so prominent in my mind, I ask you to check out this new rabbit book. Each sale benefits the House Rabbit Society and helps save more bunnies like the precious three who occupy my house and my heart.
It’s a little book that makes a BIG difference. Bunnies in Boats will touch your heart and more than half of each book sale goes to support programs at HRS, plus a tree is planted for each book sold!

Here’s a mini-review:
“I loved this book! Reminds me of ‘Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah’ by Richard Bach - one of my favorite ‘Johnny Appleseed’ books of all time… (those are books I buy several copies so that I can hand them out when I find someone who I feel might appreciate the message).”
