Rest in peace, Madison

Madison went to the Bridge on 27 October 2012
There are rabbits and then there are rabbits. Madison was a very special bun, a double amputee who nevertheless lived her life with gusto with her beloved human, Randy Koga, who is a devoted rabbit rescuer in California who has saved so many rabbits at great expense and sacrifice to himself. Madison, though, was clearly his heart bunny, and the photos of her that he sent out to the world on social media won the hearts of hundreds of rabbit lovers around the country. We will all miss seeing you, sweet Madison, and no one will miss you more than your dad, Randy. But now you can be at peace, healthy, a whole bunny again, free to bink through heaven's grasses and frolic with all the rabbits we have loved and who have gone on before us. Rest in peace, sweet girl, and know that your life, your courage has inspired so many.

Giving Thanks for Gardein This Holiday Season

IT'S HERE!!!!!

This is Gardein's answer to the Tofurkey holiday meals that up till now was the only option for vegans to buy a ready-made vegan meal to set down on their cruelty-free holiday tables. Right now it is already on backorder from Vegan, but I put my order in anyway.

If you have read my holiday blogs in the past, you know I have been putting off trying Tofurkey's Thanksgiving feasts in fear of spending all that money for something I wasn't sure I would like. Oh, I love Tofurkey sausages and bratwursts (and their pizzas!) but their deli meats? Let's just say in the past I have not had pleasant culinary experiences with them.

Gardein products, however, are another world altogether. To date, they make THE best faux meats on the market, in this vegan's opinion. Their faux chicken tastes like chicken, their beefless tips have everything but the moo in them (and they make an awesome stew!). So how can this new roast be any different? I expect it will be just like eating turkey! I will review this of course for my blog after the holidays. Way to go, Gardein, for doing so much to make life and holidays so much easier for vegans and vegetarians in the world!

Cinnamon Is Not Amused

Seeking Prayers for My Cinnamon

My eight year old bunny Cinnamon is at the Pender Emergency Clinic in Fairfax at least through tomorrow, suffering from severe GI stasis, the cause of which is yet to be determined. Had to rush her in last night when she did not respond to any meds or stasis protocol, in fact she fought me on everything, would not even take more than 10 ccs of Critical Care. Though I had her in a heating pad, her temp dropped and I caught her at one point straining to pee and saw white residue in her litter box. Xrays showed no bladder sludge, though, and no stones.  Blood work also does not show anything to indicate cause.

Please say a prayer my sweetie gets through this. Vet said she can't yet rule out a lower GI tract obstruction and that would NOT be good news at all.  Benjamin had to come home with me and he is missing her alot. Hope she gets through and comes home ASAP! We miss you, Princess Cinnamon Bunn.

Baseball and Bunnies in October

Cinnamon is a real Nationals fan. But she does not appreciate it when I cheer because I end up scaring the heck out of her!

GO NATIONALS, the Eastern Division Champions (so far).
