“Chase”

“Rusty- the rabbit”

“Rusty- the Dalek”

Last night the bunnies and I all watched Doctor Who, and in this episode they called a “good” Dalek: Rusty! So every time anyone on TV said his name, little Rusty the rabbit looked up. It was so adorable. I had to tell him that they weren’t talking to him, but I don’t think he believed me. He’s eating all of this food now, he probably just needed a bit to adjust. I usually feed him first because of his proximity to the kitchen, and Chase is always climbing up her fence in excitement. She’s dancing in circles by the time I get her bowl over to her. Both of these bunnies like the bunny-cookies I make, so I’m glad I made a new batch last week. They’re gobbling them up!

“Rusty”

“Chase”

Fulton went home yesterday, and Rusty joined the house! He checked out Chase right away when he arrived and made a few little noises at her. He’s been chinning everything. No one tried to get out overnight, but Rusty must have been busy because he didn’t eat all of his food.

Snuggling on the Couch AGAIN!

“Chase”

“Fulton”

I lay down for a little nap on the couch last night, and who should join me up there, but Fulton. He hopped up next to my head, so I started petting him. He stayed there for quite a while and actually lay down himself. It was a bunny snuggle up on the couch. Can I keep him? Later that night I caught him doing runs on the webcam, and using the couch as an obstacle course. He’s been eating almost all of his greens and about half of his pellets (and all of his treats) too. I’m sure gonna miss him when he heads home tonight, but Rusty is coming to keep Chase and me company. Chase met Rusty when she was here in June so she might remember him. I hope they get along as well as Chase and Fulton have. These two are such well behaved sweethearts, my rabbits could take pointers (Sorry Charlie & Bella!).

“Fulton”

“Chase”

Last night I gave Fulton some metacam in a little dish, like I used to give Bella. He eventually lapped it up. I don’t know if it did anything, but he ate all of his greens overnight. Maybe it just took him a couple of days to get his appetite back. That often happens with the rabbits who come to visit. Fulton came up on the couch again withe me last night for petting, and with my mom as well. Chase and I had a nice time on the floor yesterday. She’s so sweet, she’s like a little bunny toy. I certainly don’t mind having her here for more than a week!

“Chase”

“Fulton”

I spent a very long time petting Chase on the floor last night. One hand on a bunny, another on my laptop. It’s a nice way to spend an evening. Then I went over to Fulton’s pen and sat on the couch. Instantly Fulton jumped up next to me, so I started petting him too. He stayed up there and let me pet him for half an hour! No bunny except for Budgie ever let me do that, and Fulton even lay down for a bit while I pet him. It was so nice! My brother was a little jealous because he spent the whole evening on that couch the night before and he never came up there once.

We gave Fulton some more meds yesterday evening, and he was more receptive to them. He ate almost all his greens last night and some pellets. HE still loves my biscuits though, so I’m glad I have those for him to eat. He’s probably filling up on them instead of his pellets, but at least it’s getting something in him!

“Fulton”

“Chase”

Fulton and Chase arrived yesterday and are our last bunnies of the summer. They seem to like one another. Fulton likes to sleep under a cardboard box next to the fence, and Chase right up against it. They can see each other through the window, but only approached one another a couple of times. I think Fulton is fine looking at her from afar.

Chase is eating great, and always up for a petting. I got her purring for a while yesterday. Fulton has been eating about half of his food. He always eats his papaya and bunny cookies. We medicated him last night to keep his appetite going, but he was not happy. We tried doing on the couch and he ran away, so we had to bring him in the kitchen, He fought me on the gas meds, but took the other ones without much fuss. I wonder if he just didn’t understand what we were trying to do. It was not easy to catch him though, and it stressed him out, so if we do medicate again, it’ll only be once a day.

“Glenda”

Little Glenda is going home tonight, and that means only our 4 rabbits in the house all weekend. I haven’t had a “night off” from extra rabbits since June. My two rabbits are happy to have their human slave back. Our two fosters probably will miss the other rabbits, but happy they get to run around the living room instead. They’re doing a lot of that now with Glenda. She always comes over to the fence if one of them nears her, and they exchange sniffs and wiggles. I know they love her since she’s a girl, but I don’t think she’s as in love with them. She’s used to being a single bun and I don’t think she’s that enamored with boy bunny advances. I’ll be spending this weekend with my rabbits, and the blog will return next Monday, along with two more rabbits!

“Hershey & Glenda”

“Glenda & Butterscotch”

My foster buns finally got to run around the living room again, last night. They ran and binkyed all over and said “hello” to Glenda at the fence. She seems pretty interested in them too. We let the boys run around in there again this morning when we cleaned their room. I hope this extra exercise helps Hershey lose some more weight. He seems stuck at 4lbs 14oz no matter what I do. Glenda hasn’t been a big fan of her greens lately. Maybe she’s just so enamored with the boys. She keeps eating her apple and pellets though, and plenty of hay.

“Glenda”

Butterscotch & Hershey”

We said goodbye to Sherman this morning, as he headed back home with his family and now we’re down to just 3 rabbits downstairs. He had a lot of fun meeting Glenda at the fence yesterday. He dug at it a little, but Glenda didn’t seem afraid. Later she did runs in her pen and Sherman tried to do them along with her! It was adorable. Glenda also spent a while sitting close to our foster boys’ pen. I’m sure Butterscotch and Hershey like her, she is a girl after all. They’ll get to spend 3 more days with her. I’ll let them run around in Sherman’s pen after we clean up so they can greet her at the “window” of Lucite. Hershey loves doing that with any bunny, but especially a girl.

“Glenda”

“Sherman”

We said goodbye to Hudson last night, but the boys got to meet Glenda as we moved her upstairs. Sherman is, of course, very excited to meet another girl, and I think she likes him too. Butterscotch and Hershey haven’t said much yet, but I’m sure they’ll be checking her out today from across the room. Last night the two boys got into a tug of war with clover stick. It was so cute, even though Hershey was trying to steal it from Butters. He got his own eventually. Last night Sherman was sleeping all loafed up on top of the end table he usually sleeps UNDER. I’ll bet he’d be sleeping on the couch if we gave him access!
