Charlie likes to sit on his still and the top of his cage but not go up on the bed. I’m gonna put a box on there soon and see if he’ll sit up there under it. Charlie let me stroke his front paw for a while today. Then Jason tried and he grunted and freaked out. He decided to eat the origami book this morning. I awoke to his chewing and then heard a thud only to discover that he has pulled it off the shelf and it had fallen. I didn’t see him because he has run under the window. Aw, he scared himself. Then, of course, he ran circles around me because he wanted to be fed.
Mom and dad bought some parlsey plants since ours are not growing so well.
Charlie did some quick turns in the closet and then ran into the bathroom and back. Then he wanted to go into mom’s room because dad was home. He went in in the dark for a minute but then came out and was sitting in my doorway. I was able to process all his food and prep for the next day in half an hour in the kitchen. I think that’s the shortest time yet.
Charlie seems to be used to mom giving him pellets now and doesn’t attack her. Dad said he was doing bunny runs at 6:30 am.
Charlie let me pet him with my foot tonight and he even purred! We got a package in the evening and he enjoyed playing with the boy. He got ahold of Rusty Jr again though and bit his other ear off. I’ll have to think of a new place for him.
Apparently if I don’t give Charlie the petting he thinks he deserves he’ll nudge my ankles until I do.
I stayed in bed a lot b/c I have a cold and Charlie didn’t know what to do. He protected the room all day and kept looking towards me whenever I got up in bed. Aw, he cares so much. I think we may need to decrease the portion size of his fruit to help lower his weight.
I’ve confirmed now that Charlie will come when I call him over and pretty much understands everything I tell him. Smart little guy.
I had to carry Charlie downstairs today. I gave him an ultimatum and he just would not go into his carrier. Boy did he flick his heels at me though. I felt bad so I gave him a raisinet with some of the choc taken off. We weighed him and he gained an ounce, so, don’t know what’s up with that. I’ll keep weighing him. Mom has confirmed that putting your hands palms up to him will stop an attack. It’s like he knows that we’re coming in peace. Perhaps he sees them as the underside of our hands and therefore vulnerable. That bunny brain of his.
The watercress is growing way better now that I put it in real light. I think I’ll move it outside after a harvest. Now that Charlie dances around me sometimes for attention, I’ve come to the conclusion that he really likes our petting sessions as much as I do.
