Smushy Snuggles

“Molly & Jasper”

“Butterscotch”

Jasper really loves his Molly. He showers her with kisses and licks all day. He snuggles with her a lot and last night he kinda smushed her into the fence when he squeezed in for a snuggle. He’s certainly got a “crush” on her!

Right before I went to bed last night, I heard thumping downstairs and went to check it out. Butterscotch was thumping for some reason, as he sometimes does. Then Jasper thumped in response. He’s such a big bun but I guess he’s still a scaredy-boy. They calmed down but then started up a few minutes later so I came back. Eventually they both stopped. Hershey was calmly lying against the fence, and Molly was eating. Some buns are just more sensitive I guess.

I’m A Big Bunny Too!

“Molly”

“Jasper”

My Hershey is so tiny by comparison to the new visitors. He still puffs up his chest when he sees them at the “window” in the fence though. Molly scratched at plastic when he was at the other side, but Jasper doesn’t seem too interested in them. Maybe if there was a girl over there…

Yesterday, Molly kept knocking over their pellet bowl to get the pellets out. It’s a cute carrot-shaped dish, but I guess Molly just cares about getting the pellets in her as fast as she can! We have a bunch of extra bunny dishes, so I moved the pellets to another bowl that seemed to easier for her to get at them. So far they both seem to like it.

Jasper makes little oinking noises like my Charlie. So far, he only lets me pet him if Molly is nearby. Who’d have thought such a big bunny would be a’scared of me? I guess he needs his girl by his side before he can relax.

“Jasper”

“Molly”

Two big bunnies arrived at your house yesterday. Jasper seems to be the biggest bunny I’ve ever had at my house. In fact the only larger rabbits I’ve ever seen were the Flemish Giants at the zoo. I simply adore big buns, and I just wanna cuddle with him! He’s still getting to know me, but he did let me give his head a good rub last night. He’d certainly make for interesting couch-bunny. He’d take up half the couch!

Jasper also likes to sleep in the litter box. He spent most of the day lounging in there yesterday, but did vacate it for a bit so I could clean it last night. He really knows how to relax! Molly likes sleeping under the coffee table and came over to sniff my feet few times. I don’t think she really trusts me yet, but I did get a head-pet in.

When the TV came on for the first time in the evening, both buns sat up and looked at it. Then they continued to watch the screen for a while. I guess they like TV! My Charlie used to lay down in front of the TV, but now that they’re all flat screens, I don’t think the angle from the floor is very good viewing. Maybe Jasper and Molly are big enough that they can see it better. Either way, it’s adorable!

“Tone”

“Jacko”

Big brothers Jacko and Tone are heading home today. I know I’ll miss them, but I know their momma misses them too. I’m sure they’ll be back!

When I groomed Jacko yesterday I acquired a ball of rainbow fur. He’s got such nice colors on each strand of hair. He may be brown, but it’s a nice medley of many colors.

“Jacko”

“Tone”

Tone was next up for grooming yesterday. I pulled a big white snowball of fur out of his cheeks. My bunnies are all smaller than our two visitors, and they shed all over. I can’t imagine how much fur must be flying around their house. All that said, I wouldn’t mind my rabbits being a bit bigger. More fur, more poops and more food, but more bunny to love!

“Tone”

“Jacko”

We had a sudden summer shower yesterday that became a downpour. Fortunately the buns didn’t seem to mind. I think that in general, weather phenomena don’t seem to upset the rabbits. I think they understand what’s going on, nature and all. It’s the human created noises that are a nuisance.

I had some applesauce later in the day and Jacko, of course, decided that he wanted it. It’s unsweetened so I might have let him have a nibble, but I add cinnamon so I didn’t think it was a great idea. He was not happy about me hogging it all though!

“Charlie”

“Jacko”

“Tone”

We clipped my Charlie’s nails yesterday and he was a very good boy about it. Last time we picked him he got a butt bath, so I think he was relieved it was just a clipping! His butt looks pretty good too. He has a tendency to pee on the mat in front of the litter box, and then lean back into it while he eats pouch pellets. Now I’m putting just a little bit of alfalfa hay in the back of the litter box to entice him to come in. So far it’s been working pretty well. The box is soaked and the mat is pretty dry. Way to pee, Charlie!

Downstairs, the boys are all shedding. I groomed Jacko for a while and took off so much fur, I could make another Jacko! I need to give my Hershey a good groom, but he’s much less compliant. He’s shedding chocolate “flakes” all over.

“Tone”

“Jacko”

Last night I had a little cracker snack and Jacko decided that he wanted them. He was climbing all over me and nibbling up the crumbs on my lap. “You gotta share, human!” Lucky for me not all bunnies try and sneak a snack or I’d never be able to eat!

“Jacko”

“Tone”

Tone was a very happy boy when I came home last night. He was binkying and running all over his pen. Just adorable. Later I caught him sleeping in litter box. He was all loafed up and relaxed. Not a bad place for a nap! His little brother Jacko passed out on the couch like a little (orĀ  not so little really) dog. They’re certainly enjoying their vacation!

“Tone”

“Jacko”

I saw Tone make a big flop onto his back, then rolled onto his side. I don’t often see big rabbits do that, so it was pretty awesome. Glad he’s making himself comfy!

Jacko was still trying to go over the back of the couch in his pen, so we had to get creative with the cardboard. Now he’s got a cardboard fort on the couch. “No girls allowed! Unless you pet me!” His next challenge: chewing through all of the cardboard!
