We have recently welcomed a new member to our family!

This is Yuki (Yoo-kee)...which means 'snow' in Japanese... our dwarf hotot bunny rabbit!

We've had her for about a week now & it's been wonderful getting to know her. I've done a lot of bunny research for months & months to become the best rabbit mom I can be. We've had cats & I knew that caring for a rabbit would be a completely different experience & a lot of work... and very rewarding.
I lost my kitty last December very unexpectedly on my birthday & there has been a huge hole in my heart ever since. Of course nothing can replace him, but with Yuki joining our family, my heart has grown to be very fond of her & having a pet again has made our home feel less empty to me.
The kids are thrilled with having a pet besides our fish tank...something they can cuddle & enjoy watching. Yuki is all kinds of adorable from the way she eats, washes her ears, & has bursts of energy where she springs back & forth.
I can't stop taking photos of our sweet little bun-bun...so along with recipes, craft projects, and product reviews, you can expect to see some fun bunny pictures here now!

She's so cute! Looks like she'll make a great addition to your family. And I'm sorry to hear about your kitty.

She looks like a toy--too perfect to be real! Her eyes are gorgeous. I would love a bunny, but I am supah allergic to them. I know losing a pet is difficult--I am glad she is easing the pain.

I read your about and I am scrolling down to know your rabbit and also the cat. Last year I fell in love with cats...I can't afford a pet for now.:(I'm afraid he might get sick. Bills from vterinary are terrible.I can't have one so sometimes I give a couple of euros to save a bad injured animal from a shelter.
