How Do I Love Thee....

Oh my babies...

You fill every single corner of my body with the warmth of love...

....you refresh every one of my cells & make them vibrate with goodness & light...

...you make my heart squeeze & shine in happiness that you grace my life...



We are still fighting Ella Luna's abscess...it's still pretty big but we were able to give her a week off from what's been a pretty constant & intense tending too...we find that aloe, manuka honey & oil of oregano (& letting her ingest the fresh herb of oregano) is our best bet so far....Ella remains tough & strong and her limp has gone (since the oregano) and she's as peppy as ever & bossing Roo around like she's queen of the castle....oh wait, she IS queen around here, and we are quite comfortable with that, ha ha...


Somedays I don't get much done at all but hang out with & cater to the 4 bun babies...basking in their beauty & silliness...and ya know what, doing so can feel like an exceptionally successful and fantastic day so I am finally learning to not fight it...hanging out with the furries whenever I can has always been a priority & I am not shy or embarrased about that priority, for they have such precious & short lives....and heh I am no fool, I know good company & friends when I see them, ha ha.

Any fellow rabbit slaves out there dealing with abscess in their bunnies? Please leave a comment on what you found has worked best for you.

p.s. Do join me in lighting a candle for a friends little bunny named 'Marlin Bruce' who recently had to be helped over the rainbow bridge due to a massively bad abscess in his teeth/jaw:C

XO Mandy & The Love Bunnies.....

What beauties they are! Just this morning I had to remind myself to take some time to actually enjoy my bunnies. The distribution of medicine has become so constant, that its easy to forget the petting sessions....
I wondered how the oregano worked to help Ella Lunas's limp. Is it good with arthritis, do you think?

I must admit, I've never been much of a bunny person until I started reading your blog. And now, I think I could really love having one.

Once I saw a baby rabbit sitting in the middle of the road (I live in the mountains) and I wanted so badly to take it home with me, just because it was so small.

And my husband refused.

Of course, he had good reason. To date, I have tried to take home a baby owl, a baby possum, and a baby bunny. I have actually brought home a flying squirrel, a fawn, a mouse, a bird, and some strange animal that I think was a puppy but it's hard to say. . . .

So I understand completely where you're coming from, I think.

Lauren, never stop trying to bring animals home to help:D...the world needs more kind hearted people doing so. XO

Stephanie...the cup of coffee would have been abit sweeter if I were enjoying it across from you my friend:D XO.

and Karen...I've been thinking of your and yours and wondering how it was all going. Try oregano for your sweeties...ours wouldn't eat it at first because it's such a strong smell but now they devour it. Apparently oregano is great on many levels, the oil is an antibiotic of sorts and the fresh herb is suppose to be a super charger for the system & really good for digestion and aiding cells etc...so I think it just gives Ella a boost on the inside which in turn helps the outside:D Good luck my fellow rabbit mama. XO.

The manuka honey will be working a treat and not just because it's from New Zealand. ;)

Have you tried homeopathy? Pyrogen 30c could be good for the bunny's leg as could colloidal silver. ;)

Sending you and the luffly bunnies lots of love. <3
