Ten years with rabbits and it never occurred to me to actually do an internet search for bunny poop. Ah well, it is never too late to learn about new things.
Earlier this week, someone commented they thought someone on Etsy had bunny poo encased in metal for sale. True, as a pet memorial item. You send in the poo and she will encase it in Sterling Silver and create earrings. I have to admit that I have worn my bunnies’ poo, many times, but it was not intentional on my part. It isn’t among my fondest memories of them. So I will take a pass on this product. However, if this is of interest to you, you can find it on Etsy, search for “bunny poop”.
Earlier this week I did a comparison of bunny poop available from Ebay sellers. Etsy also has one seller of Rabbit Manure Fertilizer Green side dressing Gardening garden All Natural. That title obviously has some keyword stuffing and doesn’t read so well. They give the size as a US Postal Priority box of poop for $6.99 with $12.00 shipping cost. They say they stuff as much as possible into this box size which gives me a mental picture of a box about to pop with poop. They list a benefit of the rabbit manure, it doesn’t burn like some other manures. I can verify that should be true since our bunnies have never caught the house on fire with their poop even though we have gas heating and thus pilot lights and open cooking flames. The Etsy seller sounds quite friendly saying, “I look forward to shipping you some soon!”
The item in this picture was created for Easter and sold back then, but I’ll bet there could be more if you ask! You can click on the picture to see the full listing, except the selling price. I love the irony of bunny poop as soap and who doesn’t love a deep chocolate color and scent? This was created by Etsy seller Love Lee Soaps. It was intended as an Easter basket gag gift, but I think has a great year round potential for rabbit lovers.
Looking at things available on the web, I am a bit disturbed by how many items are gag candy gifts / treat bags made to look like they contain bunny poop. This kind of puts the gag into gag gift for me. It reminds me too much of an item from The Bad Bunny List. Someone left an open candy dish of Raisinets in the bunny area. I would never leave any open food in a bunny area being concerned about a bunny eating forbidden / dangerous foods. However in this case the bunny claimed them in a different manner, by pooping in the dish and marking it “theirs”. I could picture the next unsuspecting human not paying attention, grabbing a handful, tossing them into their mouth and really get a taste surprise.
On Amazon, bunny poop returns something cute for kids to aid in toilet training: Toilet Buddy Poo P. Bunny . Cute name, Poo P. Bunny! The product description says “Toilet Buddies are designed to open up family communication, peak children’s interest, and most importantly initiate toilet training readiness. They empower children to explore the toilet and bathroom independently with fun and humor.” And it gives your toilet a cartoon bunny rabbit ears, face, paws and carrot! The price is $17.59 and eligible for free shipping.
Part of the reason the Bunny Poo P. Bunny makes me smile is it really gives the feel of bunny is watching you. That reminds me of a story told to me by someone I met at a rescue group meeting. She would leave the bathroom door open and her bunny would come to the doorway, see she was occupied and race off to get into trouble while he knew she couldn’t get to him.
I will admit, I did buy something this week that tickled my funny bone. It is upscaled and subtle enough to need a second look to “get” it if you don’t actually see a title. I bought this Bunny Poop necklace by foowahu on Etsy. I haven’t received it yet. The shop is in vacation mode right now. So if you like it you will have to check back in about a month to see if it is back in stock. I loved the necklace and the description: Watch your step! Those dang bunnies leave their little ‘presents’ everywhere!
And so they do and do and do… I will share something for the pooper troopers later.
*** Addendum, remembered after I posted. One internet search told me that one of the people search companies had located Bunny Poo for me. If I paid their fee, they would provide me with the real age, location, address and phone number for Bunny Poo.
