Charlie actually let mom pet him for several minutes. He even snuggled into her! Maybe he’s finally won her over. 3 years is not too bad a record. He’s also been letting me pet him for extended periods. What a sweetie!

I’ve realized that Charlie & Bella can recognize certain words and phrases, so I have to be careful what I say. “Hungry” means “food” to Charlie. He already knew what
“pellets” meant, and I think Bella finally gets “Not for bunnies” means that I’m not giving her some of what I’m eating.

I still don’t know why, but my buns love rubbery stuff. Charlie was caught eating a rubber band in the closet (he only got half of it) and last week he chewed up a printer cable. Why, Charlie, why?? The rubber band’s no big deal (it’s natural, it’ll break down) but the wire has electronics in it and he could get shocked or worse.
