Bunnies have feelings to…

Bunnies have feelings to…

     I spent last night rearranging hosing in the garage for one rabbit.  I am very fond of sly and the big hunky guy likes to see other rabbits.   Sly gets so sad when he can’t see any other rabbits that he won’t eat or drink!  Annabelle is due to have her litter next week Thursday.  The temperatures in upstate New York have been quite cold so I want to be able to heat Annabelle’s house for when…

Indoor Rabitts

     We raise Giant Chinchillas here at Cacia Farms.  Living in upstate Ny we  can have brutal winters with large amounts of snow and wind.  We move all our rabbits into the garage for winter to protect them from the harsh winters.   This also enables us to continue to breeding throughout the winter.  I have litter trained all my adult rabbits, this makes it easier to manage them in the garage.  Amazingly our rabbits seem to be more…

Adventure is out there…!

Escape was the theme of the day yesterday.  My border collie escaped the yard and the bunny decided he was going to live in the house  I was sitting at my mother in-law’s counter talking to her while Gus had a play date with their dog Cabela.  I looked out the window only to see my wonderful border with his head under the fence.  As I was opening the door to call him back to me the whole border collie…

The Mice Will Play

The Mice Will Play

Have you ever heard the saying “when the cats away the mice will play”?  Well, my wonderful husband is off to hunting camp this weekend.  Jeff leaves tonight and will return on Sunday evening (in theory with venison for the freezer).  Well, any perfect housewife would use this time to deep clean the house, maybe wash all the linens, and clean the refrigerator.   Let’s all be honest here, I’m a wonderful wife…I just seem to lack the perfect housewife gene. …
