Hello. It's Belinda.
Well I'm mortified.
About the comment box. From last week's "Ask Me Anything" blog.
I did something wrong when I was setting up the gizmo. And nobody could leave comments.
Everyone had to email their questions to me until I got it "sorted out."
I appreciate all the email messages you sent. You really saved the day.
But you shouldn't have to do all that extra work when there's a comment box right at the bottom of the blog.
I still don't know what happened. I've added comment boxes to my blogs before. "Successfully."
I followed the same steps last week.
Are any of you "tech gurus?" If you have a minute, take a look.
Here's what I see on the setup screen inside the blog:
If you have any advice let me know.
I'm not going to mess with it any more. I'm so behind at work now it isn't even funny.
Anyway it's time to "tackle" some of the questions you emailed to me.
The first one is from my friend Teri in the UK and it's about the "Cutest Cutie of Them All" photo contest.
"Oh, Belinda! Did I read that right? USA only!
What about the UK? What about Benjamin and his wifebunz, Coco? Very sad!
PS - forgot to mention, OsKar-bunz is greedy and pushes his wifebunz, Mocha off the food. I have two lots but he just hops over and pushes her off.
Hi Teri. Thanks for the great questions.
I asked the team about offering the Cuties contest "across the pond." There are plenty of cuties over there in my opinion. Such as the two in the photo you sent.
They told me they are thinking about future contests but don't have anything to announce right now. Stay tuned.
As for OsKar-bunz pushing Mocha off her food all I can say is are you kidding me.
I have never heard of such a thing. Here at home I'm the one pushing everyone out of the way and that includes my roommate. I can't help it if I get hungry.
My advice is to use three plates. "Plate 1, Plate 2 and Don't use this plate."
Let me know how it goes.
Peaches sent the next question. She's at Missouri House Rabbit Society, in Kansas City.
"I'm also a bunny (a very very big bunny...25 lbs). I live in a great house with lots of room to run around and get into things.
My home area is quite close to the guest bedroom and bath downstairs, and I'm very good at demanding any human who passes by (for any reason) pay me in Woodland Loop treats that my mom gets from Small Pet Select.
Except during the day there's not a lot of human traffic.
Any suggestions on how I can get mom and the other humans to give me more Woodland Loops? Mom buys a lot of them just for me. In fact, I think I'm the only bunny who gets that particular treat.
Some of the other foster bunnies get other treats that mom buys from Small Pet Select, and of course we all enjoy the 3rd cutting Timothy hay.
Anyway, I know you know a lot of things, so I thought I'd just ask if you have any ideas on how I can get MORE Woodland Loops from mom."
Peaches, I am glad you emailed this question to me. I'm sure a lot of rabbits would like to "crack the code" on this one.
You and I think alike when it comes to Woodland Loops. I could eat the whole box.
I notice that you have very large ears. Also "solid" front legs and feet.
My guess is that your back feet are as big as dinner plates.
If I were you, the next time your mom gives you a loop, don't eat it right away.
Instead, pick up your back foot and give her "the look."
Just hold it for as long as you can. Until she gives you two or three more loops.
Let me know what happens.
That's all the questions I can answer for now. I will answer the others in next week's blog. There are some good ones about bonding, how to lose weight and more.
Thanks again to everyone who wrote to me. I can always count on you.
I just can't count on "tech."
SpokesrabbIt, Small Pet Select
