Cuppatea

No. No, I'm sorry, this "winter" thing isn't
working out. Bring summer back this instant.

Thanks, Diana!

Perhaps Cuppatea should have a word with Queen Cinnamon about The Sun and making it shine more.

She holds away over meteorological matters, I believe.

The Bunns said...

Oh cuppatea (and Cinny too) - we are SO with you on this. It is Cooooold here close by Puget Sound. We are basically freezing our butts off. We'll chip in to pay the bill so they will turn the sun back on!

Fleetie said...

I meant to type "... holds sway ..."!

My excuse is that the cold was making my hands shiver!

janet2buns said...

I am struck dumb by the cuteness and extreme stubbularity of Cuppatea's ears. Cuppatea replies that I was dumb in the first place.

I will comment further on the pic once I recover.

...and who says loppy ears are not expressive?

Extremely cutie-pie bunny with one of the best names.

Does this bunny live in the west? Where my bungirls and I live (in Utah), we've gotten four feet of snow since Sunday! I haven't been brave enough to take them out (it's about ten degrees right now), but my first bunny, Speedy, seemed to like the snow. He hopped up on a bank and dug himself a little snow cave. Or is it snow burrow?

J. said...

I'm with Cuppatea on this one. I disapprove of winter.

dogsleder said...

Oh my! It's a good thing the leash is red! Here in N. Calif. there's a lot of new snow on the ground and more is headed this way. Let's all vacation somewhere warm and clover-y!

Tell Cuppatea to get the first Qantas flight (a division of Bunways Airlines) to Australia. Blast the Customs and Immigration officers with a shot of disapproval, and once you hop free of the airport, you can have all the summer a rabbit could want.

@Purpleprot: Oooh, oooh! Can I be Cuppatea's valet and personal luggage carrier for the trip Down Under?? I'd love a trip to Australia, even if winter hasn't started yet here in sunny Southern Ontario.

Stacy Hurt said...

MiaCuppa! What IS all that white stuff on the ground anyway??? Weird... Looks like it was fun to hop around in though by the looks of the photograph!

SixBunnies said...

Oh, I am sorry for all the frozen bunny butts out there! Get inside your hidey boxes and wait out the winter! You can come to Texas and have our 81 degree humid days ... but you have to hurry. It's supposed to turn cold tomorrow.

Purpleprot said...

@janet2buns: You are more than welcome, so long as you don't mind being hot while it rains. My bun is only to happy to share his couch and explain cricket to any visiting buns from North America, and they will need someone to keep the cold drinks and snacks coming.

im surprised cuppatea's fierce disapproval couldnt melt the snow

janet2buns said...

@Purpleprot: Hot rains beats the cecotropes out of cold or (brrrr!) freezing rain! HRH Queen Phoebe and Prince Consort Drizzle have heard of something called a "test match". They understand it keeps the stoopid hoomins running around like goofballs for days. They are sure this would amuse them greatly.

A little off topic but somewhat relevant to this post, it seems a wild bun has decided to winter in our tool shed. I have given him/her a nice warm blanket which he appears to be using. I have been debating about leaving food for it or not would that be a good idea or would that harm it in some way? I have always been told not to feed wild animals as it interferes with their foraging. So any advice? I figure this is as good a place as any to ask with all the bunlovers here.

SixBunnies said...

DB: I'm sure there is a more knowledgeable rabbit expert in the group who will have the right answer for you, but I feed everything that wanders into my yard ... even neighbor children ... I can't help it. But, the wild bunz don't seem to eat what I leave out. They ignore it. If you have a bun living on a blanket in your shed, you have a unique wild bunny. Are you sure it's wild? Some house bunnies look a whole lot like the wild kind. you could try to provide some hay for him or her to nibble. You are very kind to allow your furry visitor to stay with you. Thank you, on behalf of the bun! You can try Bunnies_R_Us, too, a Yahoo group that has a lot of good advice and education. They've helped me a great deal!

bunny mummy said...

Hello DB
That is very kind of you to look out for this bun. I usually call the Toronto Wildlife Centre with any of my queries about the wild ones. Altho here in Ontario, they do field questions from all over the world. Having said that, a wildlife rescue organisation closer to you, (if not in Ontario), would probably be able to advise.

I hope that this helps.

DB said...

I'm pretty sure it's not domestic. I believe it is a hare rather than a rabbit. We have quite a few of them running around here in the spring but they always seem to disapear around summer or going into the fall. I am at a loss as to why this one decided to take up residence with us this year.

Jan said...

Darling Cuppatea - please look the other way while I write about something other than you. The comment about hares reminded me of an Irish hare named Buster. Look through these to when he is full-grown - he is amazing. Unfortunately his rescuers haven't posted in a long time, but he sure is in a good home.

Purpleprot said...

@janet2buns: His Royal Bunniness almost approves of the new Twenty20 format. All the fun of watching grown men run around after a little ball, but without the discomfort of his household grinding to a halt for 5 days while everyone stares at the TV saying ridiculous things like, "I'll feed everyone at the fall of the next wicket".

Fleetie said...

Janet : I must defer to your greater knowledge of bunny technical jargon such as "stubbularity"! Most impressive!

t.bunny said...

Thats gorgeous! we never get that much snow! Also is there anychace you could post an email contact for DR? I cant get outlook to work so I cant send you anything :(

janet2buns said...

@Purpleprot: Twenty20 format? New and different ways for hoomins to look silly? HRH Queen Phoebe and Prince Consort Drizzle are very much in favour of this!

janet2buns said...

@Fleetie: When one has been an indentured servant to bunnies for as long as I have, one must find new words to offset the disapproval of one's bunny masters.

Boopalina luv said...

Dear DB, you should check to see if you have any local rabbit vets in your area that you could call and ask them what to do, im sure it is a wild rabbit, however they will be able to tell the difference for you and what you should do for this rabbit in this situation, i have seen actual wild rabbits where i live and as much as i love them i also do not feed them. they do extremely wellis cold conditions they can actually burrow into the hard ground and make a nice home, good luck but def contat someone local

I have a wild bun living under my woodshed. He (or she) comes out at night and eats the seed that has fallen under the birdfeeder. I see him there in the moonlight.
