Keeping it Interesting with Rusty

“Rusty”

Rusty is getting a little restless being in a pen. I think he misses his mom and dad too. Every time I open his gate he jumps out to greet me. I gave him a few new toys to try and keep him busy. His favorite thing to do is still sit on the couch at night while I pet him. He also likes to check out whatever fruit I’m having. Last night it was raspberries and he had no trouble helping himself to one. Good thing I don’t mind sharing!

Bunny Jail

“Rusty”

I let Rusty explore the other pen in the living room again last night and he was just as excited as before. He jumped up on the couch with my brother and later my mom, but didn’t stick around long. Then he went over to a table I have sitting in the corner. It has slats on the side and I didn’t think any bunnies could fit inside them, I know my boys can’t. Well, Rusty proved me wrong! After staking it out for a few minutes, he jumped right inside the table. It looked like he was in jail when he stuck his nose through the slats. I was worried he might not have been able to get out, but he jumped right back out with ease. I guess that was just one more place he needed to explore!

“Charlie & Piper”

While moving some picture frames up on the wall upstairs, I borrowed a stool that my boys downstairs have in their pen. As soon as my Charlie and Piper saw me with it, they came over and started to play. It’s only a foot off of the ground, but while I was standing on it, Piper was biting it and Charlie was hiding under it. I left it with them for a little while after as they seemed to love playing with it. Piper even went to sleep under it! I guess they liked that it smelled like their brothers.

It’s always an adorable sight to see Rusty fast asleep on my couch. Yesterday he stretched out beside me and used the edge of my sweater as a pillow. That boy sure knows how to make himself comfortable!

“Rusty”

Yesterday I let Rusty  run around in the second pen area in the living room. My boys were a little annoyed to lose the space, but it was only for a couple of hours. Rusty ran around almost the entire time, only laying down up against the fence in the end. He went up on the other couch sniffed everything, and only let out one poop to mark that “Rusty was here!” He was a little annoyed when I put him back in his pen, but since he was so good I’ll definitely do it again before he goes home. 

I Want Watermelon!

Last night I had a bowl of watermelon as a snack and Rusty was sitting next to me. Suddenly he starts crawling into my lap and up towards my mouth. He was smelling the watermelon, and boy did he want it! I’ve never met a rabbit who liked watermelon, even I think it’s a bit flavorless. I put another piece on my fork and let him take a nibble. He took several nibbles and couple of big bites. I had to take it away or we would have eaten it all!

“Hershey”

Rusty always hops up onto the couch with me after dinner for pets. He expects at least an hour of “quality time” every night, which means I only have one hand free for eating, drinking, using the remote and anything else I might want to do. Bunnies get priority!

My Hershey went to the vet this week and even though he’s overweight, we didn’t get yelled at. Phew! He seems to stabilize at this weight no matter what we do, so we’ll just make sure he doesn’t get any heavier. Do some runs now Hershey to keep those extra ounces off! He was a little nervous at the vet, since he only goes once a year, and was shaking a bit. My mom picked him up and held him on her lap. My mom has a special bond with our Hershey. He’s the only one of our buns we could do that with, and I wouldn’t even have attempted it!

“Stella”

Stella bun went home this morning so now we’re down to just boys for a while.  My boys will be glad to have the space back. I may give some more to Rusty too since he seems like he’s getting a little restless here. He’s used to having more than just a pen to run around in, and he’s been here a week. That seems to be about the point at which rabbits get a little fed up with being in a pen here. Sorry Rust, you’ve still got two more weeks to go!

“Rusty”

Stella bunny is certainly popular with not just the bunnies in the house, but the humans too. She’s a real sweetie and even my mom has to stop once a day to pet her. She’s heading home soon and I know that Rusty’s going to miss her especially. He spends a lot of his awake time where he can see her and I don’t think we’ll have any more girl buns here before he goes back. Enjoy her while you can Rust, I know I will!

One Order of Petting Please!

“Stella”

I started decorating our Christmas tree yesterday and little Rusty was biting at the fence the whole time. Maybe he wanted to help. Or eat the tree. Sorry boy, it’s artificial. Stella likes to sleep at my feet when I sit on the couch and nudges my leg for pets. Either that or she just wanted to lay there and my leg was in her way. She did keep tugging at my pants until I pet her, so it’s probably the former.

 

 

Finding the Perfect Sleeping Spot

“Rusty”

My dad cut up a big box for Stella to lay under, since she’s been sleeping under a small table. So far she seems to still prefer the table, so maybe it’s the location that she likes. She also likes sleeping up against the couch, even when I’m not sitting on it. She was up on the couch again this morning, briefly. She gets so excited when she gets fed. It only took one day but she already knows when she sees me that I’m going to be giving her something. Rusty definitely likes having her to watch. Whenever he wakes up from his nap, he always hangs out at the window where he can see her. I don’t think she’s as interested in him as he is in her, but there are two other boys that have caught her eye. Good thing there’s a lot of her to go around!
