Leonidas is heading home today. He didn’t always seem thrilled to have me in his pen, but he did come up on the couch with me last night. He sniffed around and even put his paws on my leg. I did try to pet him, but he ducked out of the way. “I’m in explorer mode!” I’m used to bunnies trying to do their own thing, so it doesn’t bother me.

Peekin’ at Leonidas

Leonidas has been mostly keeping to himself, except at meal time. That’s to be expected though. Every bun is my friend when I’m going to feed them. “I love you! Now drop the food already!” Leonidas did get a glimpse of my Butterscotch when I was adjusting the cardboard. Butterscotch tends to hang out next to the visitors pens, guarding them as it were. I don’t let them see each other that much if the visitor is a boy, since that tends to rile Hershey up. Butterscotch is allowed a few peeks when Hershey isn’t looking though!

Let a Black Bunny Cross Your Path

It’s Friday the 13th, and I don’t have a black cat around, but I do have a black bunny! Leonidas is here for the weekend and he’s already made himself quite at home. He was a little shy at first and stayed mostly behind the couch, but once I left the room he came out and hopped all over, exploring. When I gave him his bedtime snack, he growled at me a little. I guess I wasn’t fast enough. I’m certainly used to pushy bunnies in this house, so a little fussing doesn’t faze me.

Goldibuns and the Three Nap Spots

Lola has a few favorite napping spots. During the day she likes to sleep under her towel tent, then in the evening she moves over to the corner of her fence where she snuggles with her teddy bear and has a great view of my boys. Overnight she prefers to sleep in a loaf high atop the table so she can guard the living room. Glad she’s so comfy!

Lola is now climbing onto my legs and into my lap from the table. She lets me pet her once she gets there, but I think she’s really just exploring everywhere she can. She loves it when my Butterscotch or Hershey comes over to say hello. She runs right over to the fence and they stare at each other. “I like you!” Or maybe “I’m not afraid of you!”

Warm Bunny on a Snow Day

I can tell when Lola is about to jump up onto the table in front of me now. Last night after she did and tried to eat the buttons on my remote, I picked her up and placed her on my lap. My rabbits NEVER go in my lap, unless they are looking for food, but Lola stayed there while I pet her for a while. I don’t get many lap bunnies in this house, and Lola is a nice warm one, especially on such a cold and snowy day. Thanks, lap-warmer!

Yesterday, Lola decided to jump up onto the table next to my stuff. She sniffed my phone, laptop, and drink. She chinned my laptop, so I guess that means it’s hers now. She didn’t even try to bite my phone case, which my Piper is always trying to do, so I guess I got off pretty lucky. “You can keep the phone, but I’m keeping the laptop! I can’t do touch screen with these furry paws!”

Gotta Run for Raspberries!

“Lola & Hershey”

I’ve found that Lola is much more inclined to run around on her own than sit and be petted by me. I do get in the occasional pets in the evening, but it’s not long before she’s up and off again. Last night she jumped up onto a table which just happened to be where my bowl of raspberries was sitting. She pretty much landed in the bowl. I don’t think she minded, but didn’t want to eat any of the raspberries. It’s not the first time rabbits have wound up with a paw in my raspberry bowl!

We’re putting away our Christmas decorations now and Lola wants to help. She sees us moving boxes and taking ornaments off of the tree and she gets all excited. She does theses crazy high-speed runs. She always gets excited when someone goes into her pen, dancing around our feet and putting her paws up to say “hello!” or “feed me!”. She’s so full of energy!

We brought our Piper and Charlie to the vet this morning for their annual checkups. Charlie was losing a little weight, but he’s still fine and otherwise healthy (phew!) Piper is also in good health, but boy did she act up! She tried to jump off the counter at least 3 times and it took four of us to keep her down when she bucked up again. She’s never like this at home when we clip her nails, and wasn’t like that at the vet last year so I don’t know what got into her. Dr. Saver didn’t even look in her mouth as to not upset her, and I don’t blame her! I know her ears are all good though since Charlie spends a lot of time cleaning them!

More Room to Run

Lola spent a lot of time up at the back of our couch yesterday, and I didn’t like he way she was eyeing the fence. I know that she’s a jumper, so I started thinking a couch might not be a good idea for her. I decided to move it out of the pen last night and put a smaller chair in its place. Now Lola has even more room to run, which she does, A LOT. She’s got oodles of energy and now she can do even faster laps around the table. She’s still got her towel-tents for brief rest periods, and then she’s off again!
