Bella was begging for pretzels last night and almost fell onto Charlie. He really shouldn’t put himself between Bella and food or he might get smooshed. Her birthday party is tomorrow! Her actual birthday is the 29th, but I’m going to be away then (I’m so sorry girl!!) so we’re having her party when all these other bunnies are here to attend. Cake and presents will be enjoyed!!
Benita has been a really good watch-bunny. She never tries to get out of her pen, even when I leave the gate open, and is the first to startle when a bunny starts making noise. She is the oldest downstairs right now, and the biggest, but possibly the sweetest. She doesn’t mind snuggling up against Uriel through their fence. He ALWAYS lies there. He’s definitely more interested in her than she in him. Why are relationships always so one-sided?
I let Sadie run around the living room yesterday to expend some excess energy. An hour later she didn’t show any signs of slowing down. I don’t know where she gets it all from! She’s terribly adorable though, and one of the few rabbits I can actually pick up. She doesn’t have much time for cuddles though!

Well, now Sadie is eating a hole in her new cardboard on her gate. It’s almost big enough for her to fit through. If the fence wasn’t behind it, she would’ve been out already. She’s certainly an industrious little girl. I thought she might use up some of that extra energy if I let her run outside of her pen. It worked out well for a little while, until she started to fight with Hershey.
After I stopped that she went towards Benita, but I blocked her way. She was already in attack mode so she she dance/fought me. Good thing I was wearing thick pants! She’s sleeping now so we’ll see how well my plan worked later. Uriel didn’t even come over to see her when she came out. He’s so mellow. Whatever dude.

Sadie escaped twice again this morning when I opened her gate. I’ve had to put a higher piece of cardboard at the opening to deter her. She claims that isn’t going to stop her and she’ll bust out of this joint if she has to tunnel her way out!
Benita seems like a little angel compared to boisterous Sadie. She’s much happier in the living room with her brother. Uriel likes to lie against the fence next to her. It’s so sweet. He really loves her, and I think she kinda likes him too.
All 3 of the buns in the living room love petting, so I’ve had to divide my time into equal segments so they each get some. I spend half an hour in each pen, and then I rotate. Bunnies really keep me on a tight schedule!

“Charlie & Bella”
We had two arrivals yesterday that pushed our capacity limits at Kamp Kronenberg. We had to to put a rug in the kitchen for Empress Benita, and before she arrived we let Butterscotch and Hershey run around on it. They absolutely loved it! They were now able to run all around the kitchen, without fear of slippery floor. They did runs and binkys, it was so adorable.
When Benita arrived though, she was not as happy. For some reason, being in the kitchen frightened her. We think she wasn’t used to all of the noises there, and did not like having more than one person with her in the kitchen at a time. Fortunately she was only in there for one night. She’s taking Fulton’s spot in the living room, next to her brother Uriel. She did calm down a bit when I was cleaning food and did a good job at following me around and lighting pawing at my legs begging for treats. “Please ma’am, can I have some more?”
Uriel made himself quite at home. We squeezed him in between Sadie and Fulton. He got to meet both of them, but got a little too fiesty. He scared Fulton away and almost got into a fight with Sadie. No more contact for you, little boy! He must have learned that from his big sister! He also did some loud runs yesterday.

“Fulton & Sadie”
Fulton sure had a spring in his step yesterday. He was hopping all over his pen and periscoping and playing. He’s still only eating half of his food, but he doesn’t seem to be lacking in energy.
Sadie sure loves playing with her newspaper. She even took a nap under it yesterday. I let her meet Hershey nose to nose, but he got a little too aggressive and grunty so I had to cut that short. Of course that won’t stop her from pushing and pulling her fences.
Odd as it may seem, but my Charlie is seems to be using the litter boxes again. Don’t understand his logic, just happy for the results.

Sadie loves ripping apart newspaper, and has done a great job of trashin- I mean redecorating her pen. She’s a little fireball of energy, but so darn cute. She’s noisier than all 3 of the other boys in the room combined, but they don’t seem to mind too much. As long as I give her plenty of pets and attention she’s happy.
I was a little concerned that there wasn’t much poop in Fulton’s litter box, until I looked under his cardboard box. Found it! It’s like the worst Easter egg hunt ever. At least it was in a neat little pile! When he goes to lie down, he circles around twice before sitting down. He’s like a little doggy. He’s so curious like my Charlie, but certainly not the hungry eater he is. He’s more like Sir Toby when he came to stay. Some bunnies aren’t hoovers, who knew?

Fulton has only eaten about half of his food. He’s probably stressed from being away from home, buns often are the first time they’re here. He may also be distracted by the vivacious Sadie. I think she’s a little more interested in him than he is in her, but he does keep sniffing her, and there’s been no aggression. Maybe they each want a bunny friend at home? I took a little video of their interactions.
Little Sadie sure kept busy yesterday. She snuck out of her pen as I came in, ripped up cardboard in all of the cornets, and got at the plastic under the carpet. I told Fulton that not all girls are that high maintenance (just most of us!). Girls are always more of a handful. Of the 6 rabbits in the house, the two girls are the ones who get into the most trouble.
The one thing that Fulton is gobbling down more than anything else is some Oxbow Veggie treats I bought for my buns last Christmas. They’re too hard for Charlie to chew so I have to break them up for him so I don’t give them often. I broke some up for Fulton and he loved them!

Sadie arrived yesterday and Hershey was very excited to meet her. “Someone smaller than me!” He sat up and showed her his white tummy. Butterscotch was a little less friendly. He was sleeping when she arrived and when he woke up he was a little frightened to see a new bunny in the living room. They later made friends, although I think Hershey likes her best.
Then Fulton came later in the day and Sadie was doing binkys and runs all over her pen. She was either very happy to meet Fulton or miffed that she wasn’t the center of attention. Fulton was periscoping over his cardboard between his and Sadie’s pen, so I took some away for a bit so the two could meet. Sadie was transfixed and the two went nose to nose and were so cute. Fulton thumped a couple of times but kept going in circles back to Sadie.
Fulton noshed on his food throughout the day. I’m so not used to that. Most buns I know will devour all of their food once the plate goes down, but he seems to pace himself. That’s how I like to eat. He let me pet him last night and he purred right away. Aw! And we just met! I caught them doing runs together on the webcam before I went to bed last night.

Bella has been on a tear lately. Yesterday I heard a scraping noise, only to discover that Bella had shut herself in my bathroom. She was trying to chew her way out of the door! Fortunately I was there to let her out. I wonder if Charlie would have come to her rescue… Today my mom found Bella ripping up carpet in her bathroom, and later I hear my brother saying “There’s already someone in here!” in his bathroom. Since he was the only other human in the house at the time, I surmised that Bella was the one intruding on him. What is it with that girl and bathrooms?
We cleaned Hershey and Butterscotch’s room on Sunday and let them run around in the living room. They had sooo much fun. They hopped all over and chinned everything that could fit their necks over. We had cleaned up since the last bunnies left, but I’m sure the boys could still smell them. We’re getting 2 more buns in the room today through Easter.

“Oscar, Sophie & Chloe”
The Nagao bunnies are going home today. I’ll miss their cute little faces and furry behinds. Last night I caught Oscar, Sophie & Chloe snuggling all together. Chloe was grooming Oscar and then she shoved her head underneath him and Sophie. She’s much more mellow than when she came two years ago. I heard her do another chirp and thump, but other than that I wouldn’t know she was the same rabbit.
Natalie finally let me pet her at bedtime. She and Wes came over to the fence together and I pet both of their heads with one hand. They’re finally starting to like me! And they’re leaving. This often happens on short stays.
Oscar let me groom him for a while yesterday. There’s a lot of bunny there to shed, but he was so good about it.
Bella decided to wake me up this morning by digging in the litter box. She hasn’t done this for a while, I thought she was done. Oh Bella!
