“Sal”

“Rusty”

Last night Sal jumped up on the coffee table and just sat there for awhile. I guess he had a better view up there. It’s just funny to see a bunny on the table! I don’t see how it can be very comfortable to sleep on, but he did that too!

Rusty arrived this morning and now Sal has a roommate! He’s about half the size of Sal but he’s just as sweet. Just like Sal he hid until his parents left, and then came out explore. My Hershey went the edge of his fence to say hello. This is Rusty’s 8th visit with us so I hope he has a good time!

“Sal”

Sal the harlequin is here for a visit. He started out very shy, but came out of his carrier as soon as his mom left. Then he let everyone in my family pet him and was very curious about my boys in the adjacent pen. He was up on the couch a lot, exploring. He hopped up there with me and ran across my lap. I even found him sleeping up there after dinner. Later he came up and sprawled out next to me and took a nap. This bunny certainly knows how to relax on the couch!

 

What a Glorious Arc!

“Charlie & Bella”

We gave Charlie a bath to tidy his bottom earlier this week. It all went without incident until it was time to dry him. He let out a glorious arc of urine, twice! We quickly moved him over the garbage so it landed there. Fortunately I had the foresight to put a puppy pad down after the first time, in case he did it again. True to form, he of course did. It was even funnier the second time since we didn’t have to worry about pee on the floor. I don’t know how he’s able to store it up and release a bit at a time. I guess he’s like a dog like that. His bottom looks much better, now to clean up the floor…

Getting Accustomed to Piggys

“Jeffrey”

For such a little guy, Jeffrey sure can be noisy. He frequently “redecorates” his cage by moving his igloo around. It’s a noise that my rabbits aren’t used to and frightened Butterscotch yesterday. After moving it once, Butterscotch thumped every two minutes for 10 minutes. Such odd things seem to set him off. At least he’s not afraid of Jeffrey. They can now go nose-to-nose with him at the window between their fences. Hershey did it and stretched up tall just to let Jeffrey know how big he is. He’s always puffing himself up.

“Jeffrey”

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

Glenda went home last night, so now we’ve just got the piggy (and my 4 rabbits). My Butterscotch and Hershey have a better view of Jeffrey now and they’re always glued to the fence when Jeffrey is moving around. He does come over and look at them, but I think they’re more interested in him. “What IS that thing??” He did make some cute oinking noises in the evening while looking at them. Maybe he was trying to talk to them!

Getting Friendly with the Piggy

“Glenda & Jeffrey”

“Jeffrey”

Glenda greeted Jeffrey at the fence yesterday and they sniffed each other. There’s plastic between them so they can’t actually get at one another, but they seemed very gentle anyway. They were very cute together. Just after Glenda hopped away, Jeffrey starting sneezing. A guinea pig sneezing is an adorable sight to behold. He makes a little squeaking noise and his body twists and he jumps up a little. I hope he’s not allergic to bunnies!

Last night Jeffrey hopped into his cage and went to sleep in his little igloo house around 9:30pm. I remember that he used to put himself to bed in the evenings. Everything that little piggy does is cute!

“Jeffrey”

“Glenda”

Glenda let me pet her for a bit last night and I was able to groom her a little. Sometimes the sneaky tactics are the best. I’ll put her up on the table again for another good grooming session before she goes home.

Little guinea piggy Jeffrey arrived last night and he’s such a sweetie pie. He seems more interested in Glenda than she is in him, but that’s Glenda’s nature. I’ll have to see if my boys are interested today. I don’t think they’re afraid of him this time! He would probably like to play with them, but I’m worried my Hershey would bully him. He never likes any bunny (or piggy) that’s smaller than he is!

“Glenda”

Glenda will be getting a roommate later today. He’s a little guinea pig named Jeffrey. Last time he came to visit my boys were terrified of him initially. I guess they had never seen a guinea pig before. Eventually they calmed down and got used to him. Glenda seems so mellow I doubt he will bother her. He’ll probably be very interested in her though!

Bunny Relaxation

“Glenda”

Glenda is having a great time relaxing on her vacation. She doesn’t pay much attention to the “locals” but is enjoying herself and taking lots of naps. She always lets me pet her, but isn’t keen on letting me groom her. I’ll have to put her on the table again today for another grooming session.

Banana Sniffing

“Butterscotch & Hershey”

Finola bunny went home last night so my boys get to run around the living and see Glenda now. She’s not terribly interested in them though. She prefers sleeping under the table or just lounging around in general.

I made a batch of aloe vitamins yesterday which also happen to include banana. Buns would never eat the aloe otherwise! About halfway through Butterscotch and Hershey finally got a whiff of what I was doing and congregated at the kitchen door. No odor gets past them!

And here’s a parting gif of Finola taking a bath yesterday:
