How to Hypnotize a Bunny

Assalamualaikum wbt

It's not actually fully hypnosis the bunny, but more likely to put the bunny in a trance. In a trance position, it's very useful to trim the toenails, give a medicine or calm the rabbit.

1. Pick it up with your right hand under the front legs and your left hand on the butt

2. Then stick the bunny in the crook of your elbow just like cradling a baby

3. In that position, use your right hand and start petting the bunny's face

4. Once the bunny looks relax, the head will start to fall backwards and then the bunny is in a trance position.

Don't get it? Watch this guy hypnotize his rabbit.

Practice makes perfect. If your bunny struggles for the first time, be patient and keep trying.

Good luck in hypnotizing your bunny!

Life of Rabbits (that you don't know)

Assalamualaikum wbt

Make up before going out for a date

Wearing a cute dress to impress human

Be a santa claus during christmas

Acting cute in front of camera

Reading a book during leisure time 

Plait a hair before going to bed

Working to support their family

Playing piano as part of their hobbies (not all rabbits like this)

But most of the time they don't like to show off. That's why you see rabbits always like to

Living Fossil Rabbit- The Amami

Assalamualaikum wbt


The Amami Rabbit, also known as the Ryukyu Rabbit, is found only on the Japanese islands. They live on two Japanese islands which is Amami Oshima and Tokuna Shimam, in the Ryukyu Archipelago south of the island of Kyushu. 

Beach at Amami Oshima

The Amami Rabbit is a living remnant of ancient rabbits and is often referred to as a "living fossil". The Amami Rabbit is so unique and has been isolated from other rabbit species for so long, that they are scarcely even related. The Amami Rabbit has dark fur, short rounded ears, and no tail. It is nocturnal and dwells deep in forests. 
The Amami Rabbit is threatened with extinction, with only about 3,000 rabbits believed to remain on the islands. They were overhunted in the 19th century and today they are faced with further pressure from development. Today they're list as endangered species which is soon become totally extinct if no one breed them.

Rabbits Everywhere

Assalamualaikum wbt

Being a rabbit owner is not always a happy moment. 

This is a brief history of my rabbit (that I had and still own it)

Her name is Aoi (means blue) because of her beautiful blue eyes. She is my 1st rabbit I bought while studying in the university. She died because of pneumonia (snuffle). 
Breed: Mix Angora

This is the second rabbit I bought to accompany Aoi. His name is Sora which means sky. He's lucky because Aoi's disease didn't affect him although they're kept together in a cage.
Breed: Mix Lion Lop

No name. She die because of diarrhea at the age of less than 8 weeks. It's a heartbreaking because I only kept her less than 2 weeks after I bought her at the pet shop. 
Breed: Woody Toy

My sister give her name Mimi. I love her so much but for some reason I'd find a new owner to take care of her for some time. Soon I will take her back :)

Latest news, the new owner said she had give birth to 3 cute babies. 

The bad news is all 3 had died :(

Breed: Teddy bear (but I believe she's Lion Head)

No name. He is responsible for Mimi's pregnancies. Give to the new owner.
Breed: Teddy bear (But I believe he's angora)

Her name is Pinky. This is the easiest rabbit to care that I had ever own. She accompany me while I'm alone in Langkawi :)

Breed: Hmmm......toy rabbit.....probably...

Neutering and Spaying a Rabbit

Assalamalaikum wbt

It's always been a debate whether to neuter/spay a rabbit or not. Many people said that they won't do this 'cruel' things to their rabbit as it will prevent the natural instinct to breed and reproduce. Cost and lack of knowledge are another limiting factors for most people.

So why spaying/neutering?

1. Medical reasons
- unspayed female rabbits are prone to uterus cancer as high as 80% after age 5 years. So by spaying the rabbits, they will live longer and healthier.

2. Behavior
- both male and female rabbits will spray urine to mark their territory. They're also aggressive towards each other or to other pets when they've reached their sexual maturity. Having your rabbits alter will make cut off the aggressive behavior.

3. Litter box training
-become much more easier

4. Avoid unplanned litter 

-if you keep one pair rabbits together, they will breed and end up with a litter. Ok maybe for the first time you're excited with the cute little baby. But how long you can withstand if the rabbit giving a birth every 3 months? Soon your house is full with rabbit and also its waste

Sexing a Rabbit

Warning!!! Only if you're over 18 you can keep reading this entry

It's nearly impossible to tell which rabbit is male or female by just looking their physical appearance. The only way to determine their sex is to see their sex organs. Sexing a baby rabbit (under 4 weeks old) is harder to be done. However it's possible once you know the difference between male and female sex organs.

You will need to place two fingers to each side of the genitals and gently apply pressure. Then differentiate which is male and female.

This is male


This is female


Older male rabbits (9 weeks old and above) is easy to determined as they've testicles. Sometimes the fur will always hide the testicles, so you should pushing the fur out and feel it with your hand. 

Testicles of male rabbit

Sometimes it's quite tricky to determine the sex of your rabbit. The easiest way is to ask a breeder which is male and female rabbit. If they don't know then you should do it yourself!

2011-Year of the Rabbit

Assalamualaikum wbt

According to Chinese Zodiac, 2011 is the year of the rabbit. People who were born in the year of the rabbit  have distinct characteristics in their personalities. If some of your friends were born somewhere in these years, do tell me if it's true that they've this kind of characteristics. This is the sequence of the rabbit's year :


People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented and ambitious. They're also virtuous, reserved and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted and often financially lucky. They're fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind.

Year of the Rabbit-2011

Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They're clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make a good gamblers for they've the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing.

However they seldom gamble as they're conservative and wise. They're most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig and Dog.

I was born in 1987, so it makes me a Rabbit people. Some of the characteristics do fit me well but not all is true. I also found out that most of my friends don't really have those kind of personalities. So how about you? or your friends? Do they've those kind of traits?

When Kesha went to Take It Off, Bruno Mars threw a Grenade which made Katy Perry a Firework and Taylor Swift rode away on a White Horse. Now Rihanna is the Only Girl in the World which made Lady Gaga Just Dance. Nelly soon woke up saying it was Just a Dream.

It's an interesting combination of hottest music and artist which I found at youtube while watching some of the music videos. I don't know who wrote it first, but I found it on most music videos written by different person at the comment list.

Rabbit in The Cage

Assalamualaikum wbt 

Recently I went to the Mid Valley, KL after sending my little brother for his english course in IIUM. I'm so excited being there but at the same time unhappy because no friend accompany me there. The only intention brought me there is to visit the pet shop and of course find some nice shirt (shopping ler). 

There're not too many animals in the pet shop, but there's one animal that caught my attention. Tadaaaa....the cute little creature-The Chincilla. This medium size rodent is smaller than rabbit but its fur look so fluffy. I want to buy it, but the problem is it's too expensive, approximately 700MYR. 

Near the Chinchilla's cage is the rabbit's cage.  I'm very shocked that four adult rabbits were placed in the small cage.It's a pathetic scene for this Jersey Wooly rabbit at the pet shop. Take a closer look

Four adult rabbits inhabit this cage is uncomfortable. How long they've lived there? 1 month? 2 months? or perhaps 1 year...who knows

No space to move

The words in red circle "WHERE PETS ARE FAMILY"

That's why I hate pet shop =(

Health Problems in Bunny

Assalamualaikum wbt

Rabbit can suffer a range of diseases which can be mild to deadly types of diseases. Outdoor rabbits (the one that's kept in the hutch/cage) usually are prone to any disease compare to indoor rabbits. These are some of the common problems that make your rabbit become uncomfortable

1. Diarrhea

There're many reasons for diarrhea, the most common is because of the food. If you feed rabbits with too many greens, they're most probably get a diarrhea. The solution is ensure the bunny stays hydrated as best as possible.  Vet is the solution but if you can't make it to the vet, you must feed her with fresh green hay and provide a fresh water all the time. Some inject Gatorade/Pedialite to rabbit's mouth as the electrolytes in both drink can help the rabbit's hydrated. 

Imagine you've this on you feet....urghhh 

2. Sore hocks

Obesity, long nails and wired cage can cause this sore hocks. It's pain to watch rabbit having this kind of problem. If it's not too serious just make sure that the cage is always dry or provide a piece of drywall as a sitting board in the cage. If it's too serious, treat the wound with some iodine and antibiotic cream.

3. Fur loss and dandruff

It's probably cause by fur mites. The treatment can be vary, the simplest one is by using a Listerine mouthwash. Just soak a cotton ball in the Listerine and dab the infected area every day until the fur has started to grow back. The fastest treatment is by inject the rabbit with some kind of medicine (vet usually know it). But don't simply wash your rabbit with anti dandruff shampoo, it will not solve this problem.

Early treatment can prevent this from occur. 

4. Crust in the ears

It's cause by ear mites. If your rabbit is constantly shaking and scratching its ears, then she is probably infected with ear mites. Use a mineral oil or baby oil to the rabbit's ears everyday. But usually one shot of medicine can heal all mites-ear mites, fur mites etc. So the best solution is to bring your rabbit to the vet. 

Do you know that rabbit fever can also affecting human? Also known as Tularemia which is caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis is highly virulent in humans and domestic rabbit. So if you found out that your rabbit got a fever, and then you start to feel that you also got a fever, take a medicine for both before it's too late. You should find this guy to alleviate your pain.
