“Piper & Cameron”

Sometimes my rabbits are hit with the urge to get into anything and everything. Two days ago I awoke to my Piper climbing behind her litter box and the bin of hay. Later both she and Cameron decided to try and dig out the pillow blocking access to under my bed. Once they have their mind set on a task, they are not about to let me stop them. I had to put a piece of an acrylic sheet there to keep them from pulling out the pillow over and over. Piper then proceeded to dig in the litter box and finally ended her shenanigans by running around in the closet with Cameron. He’s such a cute little brother, copying whatever she does. By the end of the day they were both passed out on their sides. No wonder, they certainly had a busy day!

Many Hoppy Returns

“Butterscotch”

Yesterday was my birthday, and there’s no better birthday greeting than when a happy bunny runs toward you and dances around your feet. Granted, they were doing that because I had their breakfast in my hands, but I still appreciate the attention. The best gift I can get is that they’re all healthy, and right now, paws crossed, they all are. Butterscotch was my chronic stasis bunny, but since he’s been getting lots of fresh Timothy gold hay all day, he seems to be a lot better. High fiber diets are good diets, especially if you’re a rabbit.

“Piper”

My mom came back from Kohl’s today with tons of rabbit merch. Apparently it’s Easter already in retail, so bunny-lovers rejoice! It’s the one time of year I can actually buy something with a rabbit on it. Piper approves! The pillow in the photo is from the Kohl’s line a couple of years ago, but she is totally nailing that pose. She had her first visit to the new vet and was very frightened, but in great health. This is one bunny who doesn’t mess around!

Hoppy Birthday Hershey!

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

p1390243

Today is my Hershey’s ninth birthday. He says he’s going to live forever, and he’s so tough that if he could on sheer willpower, he would. My little chocolate bunny is brown on his back with a white tummy, so I made black and white bunny cookies for the humans in the house to celebrate. Hershey and his brother shared a special plate of greens. He did take a little bite of icing before I took the cookies away though. Chocolate, of course.

Helping to Feed Herself

“Cameron & Piper”

Every night when I get the rabbit greens ready for the next day, Piper comes over to “help.” It’s right next to the bedrooms on her side of the house, so as soon as she hears/sees me there, she bolts over to see what assistance she can offer. In pretty much every case, that consists of her nudging me, putting her paws up on me, and walking between my legs to get my attention. Then I usually drop a piece of lettuce to the ground for her to quickly gobble up. Then it’s back to begging for more! Our refrigerator has the freezer at the bottom, but I’m sure if the fridge part was at ground level, Piper would happily help herself to her salad, cutting out the middle man.

Critical Care to the Rescue

“Cameron”

My youngest bun Cameron had a bout of stasis last week. It lasted nearly all day long, despite medications and my best efforts. I think the critical care I gave him in the evening helped to jump-start his gut. My other rabbits in the past have recovered sooner in general, so I didn’t feel the need to syringe feed, but I think I should make that a part of my care routine. As long as their temperature is over 100 degrees, they can be fed. I won’t wait as long next time. Hopefully next time will be a long time from now though!

Bunny Diets for Clean Bottoms

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

My boys Hershey and Butterscotch are getting older, but they’re still my little guys. Lately they have been having some poopy butt, from possibly malformed cecotropes combined with arthritis. I’m making some modifications to their diet to try and combat it. No more fruit or carrot for now. It could be the selective pellets as they have alfalfa in them, but Butterscotch won’t eat anything else, so I can’t take those away. I tend to feel like greens have fiber in them, and they don’t get a lot of those, so I’m keeping that the same for now. Fortunately, they are both good hay eaters, so I just keep topping off their boxes and bowls.

Merry Christmas, Now Open Up My Presents for Me!

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

Christmas morning at the Kronenbun house was very busy! As expected, everyone’s favorite gifts were the edible kind, at least all the rabbits anyway. Piper was really the only one who actually wanted to help open her gifts. I did most of the unwrapping otherwise.┬áCameron was a little nervous and spent a lot of time under a chair until everything was unwrapped and he could check it all out at his leisure.

Hershey was eating the box a present came in, and then tried to eat the glitter glue name off of his stocking. I guess all the treats weren’t enough for him! Butterscotch loved his hay cubes so much that he was fighting Hershey for both of them! They’re too big to pick up in their mouths to run away with, so they had a nudge war while chomping down on them.

Season’s Greetings from the Kronenbuns!

“Hershey”

My Butterscotch has recently decided his old baby keys are his favorite new toy. I frequently hear him tossing them around now, shaking up some fun. He can be a nervous bun a times, so it’s nice to see him so carefree and happy.

His big brother Hershey is always looking for trouble. His idea of playing, is ripping giant holes in his cardboard houses, chewing on the fence to get at his brother’s food, growling at Piper when she comes over to visit, and leaving extra cecotropes for me to step on. Okay, maybe that last one isn’t his fault, but sometimes it sure feels like he leaves them right in my footpath just to laugh at me when I step in them. I don’t think any of those things are going to put him on the naughty list though, so he’s safe this Christmas.
