Mug Shots

These would be appropriate for a coffee mug. If you disturb a bunny's midday nap like a did a few minutes ago you will encounter grumpy mugs like some of these. Mind you this is risky business what I did. Some of us wear scars thanks to one of these dudes. And they all have attitude - well that's kind of obvious. But I couldn't believe what some of them in the warren have told the volunteers their names are: Fast Eddie, Lefty, Big Al. I am shocked at the behavior in there.

I am certain Fast Eddie has underworld connections.

Layla, don't let the innocent look mislead you. They are a tough crowd.

Veganelder, he has shady connections alright. Other than who their mom is not much is known about him or his brother. Mom is from the streets and is not someone you mess with.

Christina, you and Veganelder are members of an exclusive club and wear 'tatoos' given by the head hooligan. He should give up trying to scare you guys. All he has accomplished is attracting you to himself. chuckle, chuckle

I just came here from veganelder's that Marshall??? (the top photo on "Mug Shots"). Just wanted to say I am so happy for the bunnies that have found love, hope, friendship and so much more with you all at Heartland. My parents lived in Parsons, KS until recently and I'm not sure how close that is to you, but I know it's close to OK. ... And now I'm off to check out the post about the babies under the blanket. If there's no update there, I won't leave a comment. But I hope they are ok, too. ... Thanks for all you do for the bunnies. It is clear from the photos that they are thriving with you and your loving care.

Hi Krissa, I am just now seeing your comment.Yes the first picture is Marshall. Funny you would recognize him! Good eye. Many of the bunnies enjoy a blanket draped over the side of their playpens for them to go under. In Marshall's case his purple blanket is very helpful. We are able to grab his food dish to fill it before he can dash out with his "who's on my lawn!" posture. I am not sure where Parsons, KS is but I'm sure it is within a day's drive.Blanchard is in central OK (6 miles from I-35) south and west from OKC about 25 miles. What we call our outdoor storage area(a fenced in area where all our old cages are stacked 3 deep) has quite a population of little cottontails. They have trails woven throughout in it. There's a high probability, in my mind anyway, that the babies are in there with all the other youngsters. When I show up at that end of the bunny yard there is the usual sudden dashing about and flashes of little white tails. I always talk to them and try to assure them I mean them no harm. They will calm down eventually and understand I am no threat. Thank you for your kind words Krissa. What we do here for the bunnies is just a small fraction of what we want to do. Not enough hours in the day.

Thanks for the reply Heartland. I left a comment reply on VE's page too, but you can tell Marshall that he is so handsome that I recognized him right away. All the bunnies in the photos are exceptionally gorgeous. You can see they are beloved and well-cared-for and healthy and happy. I am glad they are with you guys. Will Marshall stay with you? He needs special people, yeah? My catboy Spike had a blanket over his cubby when he lived at the shelter for the same reason as Marshall. Those who did not respect that have the marks to show for it. I used to sit on the floor and wait for him to come to me and in return he adopted me - and is the most loving guy you'd ever meet now. Maybe if a prospective human/human family were willing to come out several times to spend time with Marshall and get acquainted, he'd accept them. Either way, I'm glad he's with you all. And I bet he is, too. :)

Hi Krissa,

I never think of Marshall as "special needs" I think of him as "needs to be special" somebun very special to a human.
