Rex Rabbit, 2000–2008

Mighty Rex Rabbit passed away this week. He was almost 8 years old.

He was a good bunny, but he was tough. He came from the House Rabbit Society in Richmond, where he had a reputation as a bit of a mixer. When they would vacuum the rugs, he used to try and fight the vacuum cleaner. He was very well-behaved when we came to our house, but when Oski moved in, he let him know in no uncertain terms he wouldn't take any guff!

He loved dandelion greems, bananas, his hay, and hanging out in his tube. We'll miss him, but we know he's scampering around in the Great Meadow in the Sky!

Here's a video of Rex... he was about three:

And if you have any spare change, think of giving some to the House Rabbit Society. Rex would be pleased!

Friday Catblogging (and a Couple of Rabbits)!

Here's a bunny who's been hanging around our backyard:

Supposedly, he/she belongs to someone on the next block. The rabbit turns up in our backyard off and on. We'd prefer its owners kept a closer eye on him/her!

Here's Oski and Fiona:

They were sleeping together on the back of the chair.

Here's a close-up of Moon:

Isn't she cute???

Here's Emma, who likes to hang out in the house a lot more than she used to:

And finally, who can forget Rex Rabbit!?!

He like sitting in the fireplace, esp. on hot days - the stone is nice and cool!

Saturday at the Shelter

It's been a while - here's a whole bunch of new cats - and dogs!

First, here's Ariel:

Ariel's been at the shelter for awhile. She's a very sweet cat, but very particular! She's a little princess, as you can see here:

Another new addition is Logan:

Logan was very scared when he first got here, and was keeping to the back of his cage. Now, a week or so later, he's very talkative and affectionate!

Luther is a very sweet boy:

He's also new and a little uncertain, but he loves rubbing against your leg and enjoyed looking out the window at the passing birds!

Heather is a playful little kitten:

Another new kitten is Twiggy:

Last week, she was hiding out under her blanky all the time - now she's graduated to sleeping on top of it.

Porsche is a slightly older kitten, but still young:

He's one of two black cats the shelter is playing host to at the moment.

And just for a switch, here's a couple of dogs! Precious seems very happy and well-behaved:

And Keaton is very calm and friendly:

He's gotten a nice grooming since this photo was taken.

If you're in the area, stop by the shelter and say "hi" to the crew!

He loves the sun!

Here's a closeup:

Doesn't he look serious?

Parsley, cilantro and fresh chard from the garden - yum!

Sitting by the Window

Oski and Fiona - they look cute now, but who knows what they were doing just before I took this photo?

Separated At Birth?

Jewel (right) is a new arrival at the shelter. She looks just like one of those Margaret Keane paintings from the 60s!
