The nicest bunnyboy in the world got adopted today...UPDATE!!!

We have The Best Rabbits, Adopters and Volunteers on Planet Earth...here's why.  ; )

Greetings to everyone at Rabbit Match,

I thought you might like to know just how well Woodward is doing! On Sunday, Woodward was, understandably, quite nervous. He was somewhat leery of his surroundings, so we simply let him have some quiet time to himself. Monday was a bit better as he seemed a little less frightened and a little more trusting, yet he still wasn't interested in coming out of his enclosure. By Tuesday afternoon, Woodward was a whole different rabbit!! He finally decided to come out of his enclosure and check out the rest of his new home. He was oh so curious about everything, and after sniffing every nook and cranny, he kicked up his heels and sprinted through the house! We were overwhelmingly relieved that he seemed to approve! Since then, Woody has had a lot of free play, and when he's ready to go back to his pen, he simply hops in and plops down in his bed. He is also doing very well with his litter box, and he heads right to it when he needs to go potty. I'm impressed!

Truly, we are thrilled with Woodward! He has already given us lots of laughs and lots of bunny love (if I lie down on the floor, he comes over and lies right next to me or face to face with me when he wants petting!) We look forward to getting to know him even more, and to having years of enjoyment with him!

Thank you to everyone at Rabbit Match for all that you do for these curious creatures! And, a special thank you to Nancy for your time, your patience, and your words of wisdom last Sunday. Your extensive knowledge of bunnies has helped us immensely!

I have attached a couple new pictures of Woodward below.

All my best,

Raini

He’s fuzzy like the fruit...

Carmaine and I are enjoying Leibnitz’s company;  we started calling him Momo; which means “peach” in Japanese.  He’s fuzzy like the fruit, and seems to respond to it nicely.  It’s been less than a week, so he’s still getting comfy with his surroundings.  I’m at work at the moment, but I’ll be emailing you pictures sometime this week. =) He has free run of the kitchen when we’re not home, and then the rest of the apartment when we are so he has lots of space to run and play. It’ll take a bit of patience, but I’m hoping he’ll stop leaving me “presents” everywhere and trying to get him to use his litter box.  Any extra advice on this?  I know it’s only been a while so I’m sure he’s still adjustin….

I’m getting a little jealous since he tends to follow my boyfriend a bit more than me, but he’s getting bolder and starting to jump on to the couch and perch next to me while watching tv.  I should be able to take him to the vet this weekend, I didn’t realize my week with him had flown by so quickly!

As promised! =)  For a bit, he was hiding under our coffee table, but for the past few days, Momo’s taken a liking to climbing on the couch and then flopping next to us. Will send more soon!

Cool little home above Napa Valley...

daveallen13
when dave allen saw this little 900 square foot house in the woods above napa, it had been abandoned and left open and was basically uninhabitable, but there was something magical about it and david decided to take the plunge. the house had been built in the 1940s as a summer cabin. since the home’s paper-thin walls and questionable foundation make a remodel impractical, david intends to eventually build a new structure on the site. in the meantime, he looked for inexpensive ways to make this summer cabin comfortable and liveable – and when he does build his new space, you can bet he’ll salvage everything possible from this one! {thanks dave! and thanks to adrian gregorutti for the photos!}

[I'm completely happy in my unheated hideout, drawing water from an above ground spring and sharing with the space with bats and raccoons. Bonus features that bring me daily pleasure include a creek and a mountain (which, as it seems to be unclaimed, I’ve informally annexed). My nearest neighbors are the vineyards of the famous Hess Winery. Down the hill in my Sonoma showroom, Artefact Design & Salvage. I tend toward overscale and unusual objects displayed rather dramatically. At home I simply want to surround myself with meaningful objects. So in my wee cabin my only ongoing conscious design consideration is trying to keep the ambience calm and uncluttered despite layers of favorite objects competing for attention everywhere in the tiny space.]

daveallen21
The kitchen had been stripped of everything and was just an empty alcove. I brought in Ikea cabinets and had a friend pour the raw concrete countertop. Ceiling is corrugated aluminum, flooring is simply painted subfloor.The painting is by Roger Groth. I have a little frog living in the staghorn fern (Platycerium Superbum) just under the gold corncob trophy. Last summer when I discovered him I put him outside, thinking he’d been trapped by accident. But a few days later he was back. We’re now old friends and on warm evenings he croaks happily.

daveallen32
Painting by Mark Hobley. Corrugated aluminum siding from Home Depot. Buddha collection, gilt angel wings are Italian antiques.

daveallen41
Skylight is original, though I did have to re-sheetrock the ceiling to get rid of the mold. The oversize armoire is salvaged from a textile mill in India, and the bookshelves I out of scaffolding frames I found in Belgium.

Carved column from Rajastan. Painted surface has a particular ancient crustiness unique to India. Overhead beam is salvaged California Redwood. I had these lying around and installed them here simply to add a bit of intrigue.

Original pine paneling above stairs which lead to a narrow utility room and basement below. Fragment of a gilt pier mirror from a burnt Baltimore mansion hangs above the (1967 Gretsch Country Gentleman) guitar. Zinc balustrade is from Paris Flea Market

More excessive cute...

Do I look a little unkempt???  The RabbitMatch mom had to bribe me with cilantro to get me to pose.  This is embarrassing.  An application  of Revolution  is not compatible with a well groomed appearance in a rabbit.   I was apprehended  as an abandoned pet.   People brought me to RabbitMatch ,  in a large, expensive cage.  They had been  all ga-ga about me when they  first  found me but they had bought the "rabbits as low maintenance animals"  myth too.  They  quickly  told me I   just wasn't working out   (sniff!!!)  and I'd have to go.

Meanwhile, no one had bothered to notice that I was harboring little vermin in my baby pink ears.  Well, RabbitMatch moms have fixed me up and promised me new photos soon.  This is LA after all!!!   One never knows when that agent might notice one !!!!!   I'm certainly deserving of being in pictures.

Today is 10/16/09.  I weighed 3 lbs 4 oz.  I am a standard chinchilla-x boy.   Notice my adorable chubby cheeks even with  the frizzled  fur.    My birthdate is 5/1/09.  I'm calling myself Snowden.    More later!!!   With a crisp  salute,  Your Snowden.

Rich Germans want to pay higher taxes to help with recovery — MercoPress

A group of rich Germans has launched a petition calling for the government to make wealthy people pay higher taxes. The group says they have more money than they need, and the extra revenue could fund economic and social programmes to aid Germany’s economic recovery.

Who woulda thunk?!

There actually are (rich) sane, generous, unselfish peeps out there. That's very good news. Hope it's catching.

Bunny Puts Woman Behind Bars!! No Kidding!

February 26, 2009 - 10:30 p.m. -Bunny Puts Woman Behind Bars A woman in the UK is back behind bars after she said her child’s pet bunny chewed through an electrical wire powering her monitoring equipment.  She had been in prison for three months for money laundering.  She was banned from leaving her family home in the evenings. But Cuddles (above)  chewed through the receiver unit cable in the house.  She and her husband called the engineer who could see the cable had been chewed.  However, police took her back to prison since they believed the unit was tampered with instead. Someone needs to test the cords for rabbit DNA because Cuddles looks really guilty.


thanks, Inge.  Funny story!
