Hoppy Easter Bunnies (and a Guinea Pig)

My local bunny rescue/pet supply store Rabbit Ears, has a bunch of bunnies available for adoption including this litter of 6 week old babies and their mom. While I sketched them, they took turns sleeping piled together, eating from their big bowl of bunny chow, grooming themselves and each other, and dropping little bunny pellets.

I left the babies and wandered around the store, drawing rabbits in different enclosures. It’s hard to figure out bunny parts with all that fur hiding everything.

I think my favorite sketch is Lucy the Guinea Pig. I was surprised to see she had no visible pupils in her little red eyes.

The lop-eared rabbit’s name is Snickers. As soon as I started to sketch him he and his cage-partner Oreo got so busy grooming each other I couldn’t see his face to finish the drawing.

Gorgeous drawings of these amazing creatures. I’ve been facebooking, blogging a bit about our Izzie and Ozzie (belong to our grand-daughter who’s in Fiji) so I must do some colour sketches of them. The rabbit must have had a bellyache the other night – he ate a large hole out of a pandanus mat when we weren’t looking. Also, omeone left our mail in the enclosed verandah where they live and Ozzie ate much of a bank statement. Should have given him the parking fines and bills!

I enjoyed popping over to your blog and seeing Izzie and Ozzie. So cute! I’ve heard they will chew anything, including wires. I have a cat who eats wires. Had to replace an expensive laptop cable for a work computer after she gnawed through it while I was using it in a dark room. There were sparks but the kitty was ok, but not the wires. Cost $100 to replace! Jana
