“Butterscotch”

Of my four rabbits, only my oldest, Hershey, will hop on the tile floor in our floor. My girl, Piper will hop anywhere there is a rug, but the other two, Butterscotch and Cameron, will only stay in their areas. Butters will not leave his room, even to go to on a runner rug into the living room. Cameron will hop down the hall between bedrooms, but will not continue into the living room with Piper. They’re created invisible barriers for themselves, that will not cross, at least not yet. It certainly makes it easier for me. Hershey on the other hand, once slipped past an open gate and hopped all the way down the hall into my bedroom. Fortunately Piper and Cameron were not in there just then or a huge fight would have broken out!

“Piper”

My Piper has been getting bolder and bolder in the new house. She loves running into the kitchen and lying underneath the table, but now she’s decided that she wants to be more adventurous. A few times last week she jumped up onto the chairs and was eyeing the table. My Hershey was in stasis last week and we were medicating him on the kitchen island. Piper, of course, had to come out to see what was going on. This was the moment that she decided to jump up on the kitchen table.

Poor Hershey was getting his temperature taken and Piper was running around the table. Fortunately he was facing away from her, or he might have jumped off the island! Since then, Hershey has made a full recovery and the kitchen chairs are being pushed in all the way now.

“Piper & Cameron”

Nearly every morning my Piper jumps up on the bed to wake me. Unfortunately it’s usually about a half an hour earlier than I actually want to get up. One time I was confused and thought my alarm didn’t go off. I thanked her for getting me up. It wasn’t until I was feeding Hershey and Butterscotch that I realized I had gotten up earlier than intended! She learned, jump up on bed, wake human, get fed!

“Hershey & Piper”

Earlier this week, my Hershey decided to go exploring. I had been leaving the gate to their room open, as they hadn’t gone off their rug onto the tile floor. One night when I came into the living, I saw a little black blob next to the TV. Hershey had decided the tile was no match for him. Over the next couple of days, whenever I left the gate open long enough, Hershey would come out to explore, supervised of course. One night it was bedtime, but he was too busy hopping around the kitchen to go to bed.

Yesterday we were eating dinner and he hopped all the way over to Piper and Cameron’s side of the house. I put a fence up to keep him out of their area, and she came out for a visit. She was NOT happy that he was near “her” turf, but he was. He was so chill, he even decided to lie down for a nap, right near her. Piper may be the princess, but Hershey is the king and he lets everyone know it.

“Hershey Decides to Relax”

New House, Same Rabbits

“Butterscotch & Hershey”

I brought down Butterscotch and Hershey this past weekend and now all four of our rabbits are safe and adjusting in our new home. The trip was harder on the boys, as they’re both 8 years old. Butters has always had issues with eating and stasis, and the stress of the trip combined with stress from car rides to prepare him for the trip meant he was not happy. He didn’t eat much the two travel days, and has slowly started to eat better as he settles in here.

Hershey wasn’t thrilled with the car ride, but liked all the extra treats that he stole from Butters, who didn’t want them. They have a room all to themselves, but can see our other rabbits on the other side of the house, across the living room. I don’t know if they will walk on the tile yet, so fence for now. The other two will not, but Hershey won’t let any obstacles stand in his way if he’s properly motivated.

“Piper”

Our new house has concrete floors under the carpet while our old one had wood, and the rabbits are so much louder on the concrete. Bunny runs, either for fun or if they get startled, sound much louder. The ceilings are also higher, which means more echo effect so it often sounds like a rocket taking off instead of a rabbit. This is especially striking when it’s in the middle of the night, for apparently no reason. And thumps, my god the thumps are supersonic now! Little Cameron’s thumps sound like fireworks. So now when they get startled, they raise enough of a ruckus to scare me too!

Hoppy 8th Buttersotch!

“Hershey”

Today is my Butterscotch’s 8th Birthday. We celebrated a couple of weeks ago when I was back in New York with an ice cream cake so that I wouldn’t miss it. Butters hasn’t been eating great lately, but he gobbled down all those birthday treats. Fruit and hay for bunnies, ice cream for the humans!

Hershey always seems to eat something off the birthday cakes. When it’s fruit, I understand, but this time it was a small piece of fondant. Even I don’t like to eat that! He’s got an iron stomach that one, so I don’t think it hurt him. I quickly took the cake away though. It’s better than when he nibbled on a piece of candle!

“Cameron & Piper”

My Cameron and Piper are getting settled in at our new house. Oddly enough their favorite spot in under a chair in my bedroom. If I can’t find them, that’s where they usually are. I’m keeping closets mostly closed now, as that’s where a lot of boxes and things without homes yet are being kept, so of course that just makes them want to rush in whenever I open one up. They don’t seem to really get the concept of “bunny-safe.” They just want to explore everywhere new, and of course mark it as theirs.

Butterscotch’s New Bun-Cave

“Butterscotch”

My Butterscotch just loves his new little bun-cave. My mom and dad made him a new hangout spot from a giant cardboard box and he can’t get enough of it. He takes his morning nap there, his afternoon nap, his evening nap, and then his midnight nap. He naps a lot, as rabbits do, so having a nice and cozy napping spot is essential for the modern rabbit. Butterscotch has very discerning taste, but approves of this new structure wholeheartedly. There’s even plenty of room to share with his brother Hershey, which being the sweet rabbit Butters is, he never minds doing. 5 stars!

“Piper & Cameron”

The Kronenbuns are in the midst of preparing for our move to Florida. Piper has been very helpful in knocking over boxes and standing in doorways while we move furniture. She loves the new extra space she has in the almost empty room now and keeps trying to break into the suitcase that’s full of rabbit food. She’s like a furry troublesome toddler. Cameron isn’t usually far behind, but a least he’s not quite as destructive as his big sister.
