The Tale of Peter Rabbit is the original classic by Beatrix Potter. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first published by Frederick Warne in 1902 and endures as Beatrix Potter’s most popular and well-loved tale. It tells the story of a very mischievous rabbit and the trouble he encounters in Mr McGregor’s vegetable garden! Re-originated in 2002 to mark the centenary of publication bringing it closer to the original edition, six illustrations were restored, four that were removed in 1903 to make room for endpapers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format. Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors of all time.

This weeks item is Rabbit Wool Socks!

Now I like bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience, and I have researched enough to recommend.
A few years ago I received rabbit wool socks for a Christmas. Out of the package I noticed how soft and fuzzy they were. They are a thick sock. You can call them plush, but they are not like plush material. They are very soft thick socks. My feet have been warm and comfortable wearing them. They are very fine outside, but they are a thick sock, so they may not fit into tight shoe. They can be too warm for wearing all day indoors in a shoe. They wash well and have not lost their shape. The elastic top was just right holding up the socks without being too tight. I have no complaint about the fit. My wife likes to wear them as slippers inside do to how warm they keep your feet. These are amazing socks, they are very soft and not itchy at all!

This weeks item is a window fan!

I have had a Holmes window fan for over ten years. It has a temperature setting so that you can set it to come on at a specific temperature. I have used it in the window to draw in or out air, and I have used it in a door way to move air from one room to another. This could be used in a room with a rabbit to draw cool air through from outside, or if you have a rabbit barn with a window, this Holmes window fan could be used to draw some air through. This Holmes window fan is cost effective and draws in fresh, cool air from the outside or exhausts stale, hot air from inside. The Holmes window fan can do both simultaneously because each of the two fans can be set independently to draw in or exhaust out, allowing the unit to exchange inside and outside air. Operable either manually or automatically—with its thermostat turning the fans off and on to maintain a selected temperature—the unit has a one-touch electronic control and two speeds so it can be adjusted to specific conditions. It’s designed to fit double-hung, vertical-slider, and casement windows.

This weeks item is a Headlamp:

This weeks item is a NiteCore Cree Headlamp. I use this NiteCore Cree Headlamp to check on my rabbits outside. This is Purpose-designed for hiking, climbing, camping and general outdoor recreation. It is All metal high-performance dual-beam headlamp Aluminum “unibody” construction is highly rugged and provides excellent cooling performance. It Utilizes a premium CREE XM-L2 (T6) LED Powered by a single 18650 lithium-ion battery for up to 565 lumens of output. High-efficiency circuit provides up to 400 hours of run-time. It produces an extremely wide beam. This is probably the best NiteCore Cree Headlamp I’ve found to-date.

What I like about the NiteCore Cree Headlamp:

It’s bright – for most stuff, the 2 highest settings are way more than you’d want for anything that’s within a few yards of you. It’ll also blind anyone you’re looking at. Easy to use control buttons. Built in red lamp which is useful for retaining your night vision. Unlike some other reviews I think the red light level is just about right – you’re really not going to see anything more than a few yards out with it, but it’s meant to preserve your night vision. It would be nice if you could adjust the brightness, but that would just be a nice bonus. This has long battery life – I usually use this at the 2nd dimmest level as that’s enough for most projects, and I get many many hours. I usually re-charge it once a month, and I use it several times a week or more.

The only real issue is the strap isn’t the greatest. I usually have to have it on a little tighter than I’d prefer for longer usage duration to keep it from falling off if I’m sideways or upside down. If you’re not contorting yourself in crazy positions it probably won’t be an issue. You can also put the NiteCore Cree Headlamp on over a hat.

Today’s HOTR Amazon Item of the week is the All Weather Large Rabbit Water Bottle
I believe with some things to always buy the best you can afford. The All Weather Large Rabbit Water Bottle is easy to install fits most cages. Engineered for superior performance one piece tube/cap assembly with stainless steel double ball point tube. Filling Instructions: Water bottles work on a vacuum lock. When bottle is filled and first inverted, press the control ball and let water trickle out until vacuum develops before placing bottle in holder.
I have had it drip/leak before until the pressure equalized. I had the same issue the first couple of days, and I had the same issue with my old (smaller) one. The fix is easy.
-When you fill the bottle, make sure to fill it ALL OF THE WAY.
-then when you place it for use, press the ball in with your finger until it stops dripping. Equalizing the pressure will stop most of the dripping. I have also experienced algae growing the bottles before, so be sure you get a bottle brush.

Encyclopedia of Pet Rabbits:

Now this week our HOTR Amazon item of the week is the Encyclopedia of Pet Rabbits: This book is the book that I have been referencing for the plant of the week.  This book is filled with a wide variety of colored photos of the different types of rabbits.  It also provides a good description of rabbit care and housing.  In addition, there are medical tips and photos illustrating the results of poor care.  This is a useful guide for the young or old rabbit owner who may wish to explore other breeds.  It has Excellent photos, and is a compact book.

Yesterday’s News:

Many people have great success with litter made from paper pulp or recycled paper products.  These litters are very good at absorbing and cutting down on odors.  A litter called Carefresh (use the Natural only product) is available at most pet stores, as is Yesterday’s News.  A similar litter in a pelleted form is called Cellu-Dri.  These litters are harmless if ingested.
Every week I would like to bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience, and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s HOTR Amazon Item of the week is Yesterday’s News Unscented.  Now when I worked at pet store, people either loved the Yesterday’s News Unscented or hated it. There did not seem to be any in-between.
One issue people have about their rabbit’s litter box is that it smells.
Using a newspaper pellet litter like Yesterday’s News Unscented will solve the problem. Even though it’s made of newspaper, the compressed pellets neutralize the odor much more effectively than sheets of newspaper.  Here are a few tips about using a recycled paper pellet litter:
Just put a very shallow layer of the litter in the litter box — enough so that the bottom is covered. It does not have to be deep because rabbits do not bury their droppings like cats. Furthermore, you will be discarding ALL of the litter every time you clean it, so you want to use the least amount possible to make it last and save money.
You can buy large bags of Yesterday’s News Unscented that are marketed for cats.  You don’t have to get ones marketed for rabbits.  Just be sure to buy the unscented version.
Put hay on top of the thin layer of litter.  Rabbits like to eat and poop at the same time. So this encourages them to use the litter box.  Just be sure your rabbit has access to clean, fresh hay at all times.

20 Pack of Blue Barb Rabbit Nipples for Automated watering:

Every week I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s HOTR Amazon Item of the week is the 20 Pack of Blue Barb Rabbit Nipples for Automated watering.  As you may know I always say with some things always buy the best you can afford.

This weeks product is a 20 Pack of Rabbit Nipple for Auto-Watering for rabbits. These are one of the best 20 Pack of Rabbit Nipple for Auto-Watering available for 5/16″ inch tubing. These are easy to take apart either to clean or replace parts. They are easy for rabbits to use and works great with gravity fed or low psi automated watering systems. They can also be used with Ferrets, Chinchilla’s and other small Mammals. I have found that the blue ones seem to hold up better then the red nipples. I have found that the “T”‘s that are with either break very easily, so I would not recommend expecting the “T”‘s to last very long. In fact, I have found that the “T”‘s last about two weeks before I have to change them out. The nipples I have found seem to last pretty well. I have had to swap them out about every few months, and this is because they sometimes break in half. They attached to the cage by sticking one end of the spring in one of the small holes on the metal base of the drinker, and stick the drinker to one of the bars of the cage and with some fine pliers grab the other end and pull it and insert it to the closest opposite bar of the cage.
