    My house rabbit is fond of sitting on the hearth (unlit of course) and looks
    rather good. Any lighting hints to allow me a good pic of her????

    Maybe a slave triggered strobe placed up the chimney a ways firing
    downward to illuminate the background, then the usual portraiture
    lighting for the subject.

    No, but I do have some "fire lighting" hints that would make a good
    pie of her.......

    OK OK, I've offended you, I'm sorry......

    The exposure would need more light, so use whatever method your
    camera allows. Slower shutter speed or wider aperture, EV
    compensation, etc. Or you could bring the bunny to a hairdresser
    and bleach it blonde. :)

    It may be that simply considering a bleached blonde provided my
    own blonde moment. But illecebra's reply made it more amusing than
    if I had been the first to notice the hair/hare pair, I think. :)

    You could try dying her fur white. :) Seriously, don't you find your
    bunny shitting all over the house pisses you off?

    It's not hard at all to litter-train a rabbit.

    Can you build up a relationship with them though, like a cat or dog?
    And don't they chew through wires and stuff?

    You've obviously never had a house rabbit then. They're easier to house
    train than children and generally more intelligent than teenagers.

    Yes of course. They are probably about as bright as a dog or a little dumber
    than a cat.
    Occaisionally they may gnaw at things but no more damage than an average gat
    may do.

    I'm a bit worried that if I acquired a house bunny, it would end up
    going up in a big flash and bang, having chewed through a mains cable
    or something. Roast rabbit fumes would exacerbate my asthma.
    The ohter thing that bothers me is: don't they try to shag everyting
    that moves (or doesn't move, even)? Or is that just male rabbits?
    Would I be better off with a girl-type bunny or are they not as
    intelligent and prone to moodiness?
