This is a vintage print that I found, and I just fell in love with it. I am not sure who the artist is but believe it is from the Art Nouveau or Arts and Crafts period. I just knew it would make a beautiful and interesting paperweight for any room in the house.

I was curious about rabbits running in circles, and there is a reason for this. What I discovered is that running in circles (circling) is a common behavior in domestic rabbits.  Here are the reasons why rabbits run in circles:

  • Courtship behavior. Circling can be a kind of mating dance. Bunnies that have not been spayed or neutered will often circle other rabbits. It’s a way of asking them to mate.
  • Establishing dominance. Like mounting, circling can be a way for your rabbit to try and establish dominance. They’re saying, “I’m the top rabbit.”
  • Attention seeking. Some rabbits circle their owners to try and get their attention. They may be asking you for food, grooming, or to move out of the way.
  • It is initiating play. Rabbits can chase each other in circles as a form of play. It’s often accompanied by a “binky” – a jump with a twist in the middle.
  • Boredom. Bored rabbits often exhibit compulsive behaviors, such as pacing back and forth or hopping in circles. This can be if the rabbit’s cage is too small, or they don’t have enough to do.
