Old Gray Hare...

I just saw this news story about the Guiness Book of World Records certifying This bunny as the World's oldest rabbit at 14.

Rabbits generally live to be around 10-12 years.

Princess Jewel is really starting to show her age. She is going on ten. Jewel was 2 when we adopted her in Nov.1997. her appetite is still good and she loves to eat her hay and pellets along with the daily carrots and salad.

Her legs are afflicted with some arthritis though.Sometimes when she is flopped out and laying down she doesn't have the leg strength to right herself again. It's making us nervous because over the lastt month we've found her like that-kind of stuck while we were away at work.

Mrs. Pratt has been going home for lunch to check on her since she works nearby and I'm going to have to do that too.

Greyton is an old gray hare as well. We adopted him in July 1998 when he was 2.

We realize that he and Jewel may only have a few years left.

Baxter and Twizzle at 9 months and 1 year are the next generation of bunnies.
