Name:  Mr. Cleveland Brown

Age:   Not sure – I think around 8

Location:  Prestatyn, Wales, UK

Web/Blog Page:  Under Construction 🙂

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I thought she looked like Santa! It was December and they came to visit me and she was wearing a red coat! She said to me that she was going to be my new Mummy, I liked her although I was quite wary at first. I thought he had a nice kind face but I wasn’t sure if they would love me though, I need to explain. At that time I was staying at a horse sanctuary, I had been taken there so I’d be safe. Thing is my old parents weren’t very nice to me, I don’t know why I tried to be good. I don’t remember a lot because I was only little but I ended up running around on a road with scary cars that were going really fast and one hit me and it made me go to sleep for a bit.

I was told later that a nice man tried to put me in his boot to take me to the police station but he couldn’t lift me so he rang the police man and they said they would come but by the time they did I had woken up and was running again. It was so cold and I was so hungry so I just kept wandering and I found a nice garden so I went in there and tried to sleep. In the morning the lady that lived in the house opened her curtains and we looked at each other a bit shocked. She was nice but I was very scared of people but she rang the police man again and they came and he took a picture of me, I think they call it a mug shot? So then the horse sanctuary ladies came and with a bit of a struggle they got me into the trailer thingy but I was good I didn’t bite any of them.

It felt so good to be in the stable it was so much warmer as I had some nice straw to snuggle in and they gave me some food, I was so hungry, those ladies were very nice. They told the radio people about me trying to find my parents and my new Mummy heard about me and that’s when they came to see me. My old parents didn’t come for me but I’m glad they didn’t if I’m honest they weren’t nice people.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Well the big day came and I was put in a crate, I gave them a bit of a run around of course hehe but I went in there in the end. They lifted me into the big car and we drove for a little while until we got to where I was going to live. They opened the crate and I wandered out and that’s when I saw it! A really smart house! I’d never had a house to myself before well I hadn’t had much of anything really. It might not have been much to some pampered piggies but to me it was a palace. I went straight in and snuggled up in the warm straw it was bliss, I knew that never wanted to leave this place ever.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  Not sure where to start there’s been few hehe! There was the time I escaped and the chase was on again around the street, I did a big poo in the lady over the road’s garden but they managed to guide me back into my house again. Once I was back in the drive I ran straight back into my piggy palace and didn’t go out again for a while I didn’t want to do that again! There was one time that I thought the hose pipe would look good in my house and took it in there thing is I hadn’t considered that it was on and my house got wet oops!

Who do you have wrapped around your trotters more – mom or dad – and why? Both! I have them so well trained. I do a bit of squealing and they will come out and give me some fuss and a snack hehe! I think Daddy sneaks me more biccies that Mum though.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Some think that I’m mean, and are scared of me I don’t know why I’m more scared of them! Once they get to know me though they know I’m nice.




Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Speedy

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Speedy

Age:  4

Location:

Web/Blog Page:  Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny on blogger and Speedy the Cheeky Rex Rabbit on wordpress for my followers there  (Be sure to pop over and say hey – remember to tell Speedy that Bacon and Houdini sent you.)

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Daddy petted me in the hutch I was in and Mummy was petting another rex in the same hutch.  That is when Daddy picked me up for a cuddle which was very nice but he seemed sad.  He then passed me to mummy for a cuddle and I knew she was like home.  She smelled of home so I started to tooth purr which she commented on to Daddy. Hehehehe –

 think Mummy fell in love with me in that moment.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I knew the moment they came back for me after they put me back in my hutch.  They put me back and left.  I poked my head out of the hutch and said don’t leave me but they left.  But then the most amazing thing happened a little while later.  They came back for me.  Mummy held me giving me a big cuddle and that was the moment I knew I was home safe in her arms,  After that they popped me into a carrier and drove me home.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  hehehe – that would be when I escaped from the kitchen and found my way into the lounge.  hehehe I bit through Daddy’s Speaker Cables from his surround sound…hehehe oops!

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Hehehe – that’s easy.  While Daddy like’s to give me cuddles and sneak me extra treats, its Mummy who will do anything for me and spends the most time with me, playing, cuddles.  And she doesn’t shout at me when I’m naughty.   She just laughs and scolds me just a little bit…hehehe.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  A lot of humans think I am stupid with no character.  They are completely surprised that I love to play and have fun adventures and that I am very friendly. Most humans think that about all rabbits – that we just sit in our hutches not doing very much and just eat food all day long but they are so wrong.  Take us buns out of that environment and give us space to run and play and you get to see how much fun we can be and how affectionate we can be too!

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Speedy – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

31 Days of Spook – The Mummy

Oh Boo my friend.  This afternoon I have another real story for you about a mummy.  I heard about this story early last year and couldn’t believe it.  Since then, we have even her it mentioned on television.  Enjoy my friends – I’m here to hold your hand or paw if you need me 🙂


In 1976, a camera crew was filming a television show inside of a haunted house in Long Beach, California.  When they were setting up, they moved a mummy prop to the side.  When they did this, one of the arms fell off.  When the arm fell off, they noticed that it was actually real human bones.  After the authorities were called in, they learned that the body was the criminal Elmer McCurdy who was killed during a shoot out following a train robbery.

After he was shot, a funeral director embalmed his body and put it on display since he was so proud of his work.  Eventually a pair of carnival promoters claiming to be McCurdy’s brothers took the corpse for themselves.  McCurdy’s corpse popped up in many haunted houses across America before winding up in Long Beach, California.
