Our other little Babies

It seems that I am currently in an animal mood when it comes to articles however this one had been prepared already many months ago but I never got around to publish it.

So fluffy that you can’t even see the eyes!

Every now and then I mentioned bunnies in my posts but never showed them except once when I once again wrote about MIL. The fact that I didn’t show them before is not because they are so incredible ugly but due to the fact I had always so many other things to write about. However just the other day my wife asked me why I never wrote about our older babies and I decided to honor them with an own article.

During our trip to China in the summer of 2011 my wife really wanted to have some pets after seeing so many fury animals and friends and pets stores. Thus I decided to do some research and came up with the idea to get my wife a bunny. But as everyone (should) know is that you should never keep a bunny alone so we had to buy two little fur balls. After checking the local bunny breeders I quickly found one 160km away who still had two bunny babies left to be sold. The very next day we got into our car and drove to take a look at those bunnies and perhaps even buy them.

Their home in our cottage


Needles to say my wife loved them right away even though she prefered back then white bunnies. After having a short introduction into the family tree of these bunnies we bought them and took them back home where we had already a cage prepared in our balcony. After short time both little bunnies didn’t stay so little anymore but doubled their weight and now we have two monsters each having a weight of about 2kg.

Who is cute? I am cute!


In Finland they had their little cage on our balcony and during last summer they stayed for three months in my parents cottage where my dad had built them a little outdoor cage. To my father’s displeasure they were pretty fond of digging holes and ruining the garden he had taken care of for so many years. Now here in Germany they got a new little home in our balcony but this time on two layers so they can avoid each other a bit better than before. Of course it is far away from the space they would need but we try our best to bring them sometimes down to my parents balcony to run around as that one is just huge. For my wife the worst part is that she is allergic to bunnies!

As there are currently many things going on in my life I will probably throw some older prepared blog posts at you rather than current new stories. I hope everything will be settled soon but you never know what the next day got prepared for you.

How do you like our other little babies?

Be sure to follow me also on Facebook and on Twitter as I will post there occasionally pictures which do not find their way into my blog posts.

  1. How lovely!!! I absolutely adore bunnies, they are the cutest fluffiest thing ever.

    May I ask you wether you live in a house you bought or you rent? In case you rent, did you encounter any problem with the landlord not allowing pets? It seems like that is an issue for a lot of renters and I am a bit worried about it as we have a cat..

  2. We just came back from the mall where they were having a pet expo/fair of sorts and we saw many adorable bunnies! If we weren’t moving, I think we might have gotten a pair! Thanks for continuing to share more about you and your family. How’s Nathan w/ them?

  3. The bunnies do look massive. In fact, I think they have a bit of a resemblance to dogs (it must be the furr). Don’t mind coming over to visit you and them, would be a fun time and great photo opportunity. Hope all is well, Crazy, and that things will simmer down soon 🙂

    1. I their younger years they actually really looked very unreal, just like toys when they didn’t move 🙂

      All will be good here time given. No idea yet how long it will take but it won’t be forever

    1. They are called lionhead bunnies. It’s a special breed with very furry fur around their head and front part of the body, just like a male lion 🙂

      They are actually not that big but huge compared to back when we bought them. In the beginning each was just a bit bigger than a hand of mine

  4. How cute and fluffy!

    I never had pets before as a kid, because my parents dislike furry animals. Also they think having pets is bad fengshui. I don’t have pets now because I am to busy (or lazy) to take care of them properly so if I have one they will probably die 😦

  5. My sister and I used to have a lot of animals. We grew up in the countryside, so most of them could roam rather free. We even had bunnies, but I think one of them got mentally ill. It started biting other bunnies and my sister so it had to go:)

    1. It is nice to have enough space for pets. We have only this apartment and reach quickly already with these bunnies our limits(and my aquaria which take much space…)
      Bunnies can get rather strange with higher age so I hope ours will be fine

  6. They’re very cute and fluffy. I like the two-story cage. Did you make it? It looks very professional.

  7. They are adorable. Such a shame your wife is allergic. Sadly we don’t have any pets. I’d love to have a cat but my husband says he’s allergic! So I write about cats, and dogs instead!

    1. My wife wasn’t allergic at the beginning. It developed after half year I think that her nose started running and some swelling in the skin where she got into contact with them.
