Mom fed Charlie some blueberries when I was outside today. He kept jumping into her lap for them and when she dropped one and went to get it, he bit her. I think that’s understandable though. But we know that he still can get upset even if I’m not in the room. I brought some snow in for Charlie to check out for the first time. He sniffed it, licked it and then ate some. Then since it was tasteless he shunned the rest and hopped away. I started giving him the carrot tops I’m growing. I think I’ll cut them as soon as they grow leaves and then just let them grow back. He really tore at the rug under my chair today. I guess he wants it like the other one.

We cleaned the room today and bunny was not happy. I put him in the hall with his stuff and put cardboard blocking the alcove btwn my room and the bathroom. He kept scratching at it. Aww. I even gave him pellets but he wouldn’t eat. When the vacuum was on he hid under the dresser but came out afterwards. Mom gave him some raisins when she came in and he was fussy later. He was practically crawling into her lap to get them, but was still making little grunts. I took her hand under mine and we pet Charlie until he realized what was going on and bucked up. At least he’s learning. He also seems to settle down after he makes his point with her.

Charlie was tossing around toys early this morning. He was good with mom today. Out of all the times she came in, he only hissed at her once and that was in the evening. I think if he’s awake he does it because he doesn’t seem to in the daytime. He even grunted at Jason when he tried to pet him while he was eating. Charlie ran around my feet under my desk at night. What a sweetie.

Charlie was awake when I got up at 7:15am, yuck, for my italian final. He hopped around, ate, and went into mom’s room. He was sleeping when I came home at 10, but came out and hopped around. He followed me into Jason’s room and mom’s, eventually going back to the sandbox. The new strainer I’m using for poop in the sandbox is working out well, and Charlie gobbled up some broccoli rabe just like he did with the Kale. Charlie ran around my feet a lot today. I love that little guy. Since he stopped eating from the hay manger becuase he eats in the cage, I moved the manger onto the outside of the cage. It’s less in the way there.

Didn’t have too much trouble getting Charlie into the carrier. He fussed in the carrier while I groomed him on the counter but was much calmer outside the carrier. I think the grooming helped. He wasn’t happy though and I had some trouble picking him up. As soon as we got to the top of the stairs he squirmed to be let down.

When downstairs, Charlie periscoped up to nanny’s chair so I took down the cushion. He hopped onto the cushion, but not onto the chair. I think he was pretty happy though. He tossed the paper bowl around a bit, but I think it might work for him.

Charlie was cold again today, he slept in the sandbox and loves his corner btwn the tree lights and the cable box. He totally loves the kale, so maybe he just needed a break from it. I was able to stare Charlie down when he wanted his pellets at midnight:45. He went and ate some hay instead. He laid down in his house and slept there for awhile, which he hasn’t done since we moved the sandbox.

I bought Charlie some more Kale and he ate 2 leaves today. Maybe he just needed a break from it. He did some little runs in and out of his cage and into the hall along with some binkys tonight. He fussed at mom less, taking his time running over to her. Maybe that’s just how he wants to greet her, or he thinks it is a game. He clawed an oreo while attacking and then licked it. Mmmmmm. He liked that.

Charlie hasn’t really been eating the green pepper, so I won’t buy that for him again. He has been eating on the tablecloth though, so that is working out. He likes to lie on it too. I guess it’s soft. What I thought was poop on the bottom of his right foot was really a leaf I think, and it came off in pieces on its own today. I am able to pluck fur from all over him carefully, except the bottom. I’ll have to work on that on a table. He really liked chewing on the lite brite box, and he did a binky on my bed. Nanny made awful smelling fish for dinner, and even Charlie didn’t want to leave the room.

So Charlie didn’t go in the new sand until right before I went to the bathroom. Then when I came back, he came out of my room and wanted to play. I shut the door and got on my bed. That signals him it’s time for him to go to bed too. So I went and pet him and he slept in the sandbox.

At 7:45am he hops onto the bed, checks out the headboard, then hops onto my pillow. Then a noise must have startled him because he zoomed off the bed, hoping on my face in the process. I didn’t know if he’d ever do that. Answer: yes, and his nails kinda hurt. Later we all heard him doing bunny runs.

Debbie, Juliette, and Kyle came over after grandma’s and Juliette wanted to pet Charlie. He was pretty good, better than last time. She kept trying to feed him hay, which he did a bit, but I gave her the blueberries. Then he was her best friend!

I kept vacuuming Charlie’s blanket where he eats, so I cut up a blanket to make bunny table cloths. Then I accidentally kicked him so I gave him some blueberries. Man did that make him happy. He ran circles around me 10 times when I brought snack up for him. Aw.

I brought Charlie down and he got to go under the Christmas tree. Boy was he happy. He checked out all the ornaments, tried to eat the tree, dug at the skirt, and eventually laid down. He was so excited that he did some binkys under there! I was just as thrilled as he was. He tried to play dredel, but the spinning put him off a bit. He weighs 4 lbs, 8 oz now. He’s gained 2 oz every month since we’ve had him. Mom think he’s still growing bigger. We’ll see. I replaced the sand in his box and tried to put a blanket over it. No dice, I think I’ll get a scooper though, to get out the poop.
