Get your hands on our buns. I mean it, let them linger. Before you get all huffy and give me a "red light" for suggestive language, please know I'm talking about our second-annual "Get Your Hands On Our Buns" rabbit adoption extravaganza from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Sunday on the second floor of our Center for Compassion on Rollins Road in Burlingame. Admission and light petting, both free. The highlights begin with the sheer number of bunnies available for adoption; looks like we'll have at least 20 eligible bachelors and bachelorettes of all sizes and colors. For this special event, we're reducing the adoption fee by 50 percent ($20 adoptions) and knocking 10 percent off rabbit starter kits and caging in our Furchandise store one level below the bunny floor inside our new center. If you've always been curious, but don't consider yourself a bunny expert, don't worry; this event is for you. Our specialists will be on hand to answer your questions about care, diet and poop. Everyone wants to know about poop, mostly how to manage it. It's a little known fact, outside rabbit circles, that bunnies can be litter box trained. Throughout the event, we'll have brief demonstrations on harness use and clicker training (yes, you can walk and train a bunny!), grooming, nail trimming and rabbit massage. If you "knead" to know more, hop on over. This event is also geared toward people who already have one bunny at home and are considering a partner. Our expert matchmakers can suggest which of our bunnies might work for you and your resident bun. If you are more of a novice and want a little tip to show you know your buns, males are called bucks and females are sows. Cecotropes are the "night feces" rabbits make, and then usually immediately digest, as they are a vital part of their diet. No lie!
