Jeffrey

“Jeffrey”

Jeffrey stayed in his cage after he arrived yesterday, but readily chowed down on greens, pellets, and hay. My boys were sitting on the other side of the fence watching him, so he might have been a little nervous. I put up cardboard at night so he would have more privacy. He’s such a cute little guy. His movements are a little different from those I’m accustomed to in rabbits. He’s a little jerkier. He doesn’t hop-he jumps. He also uses his front paws like hands, something rabbits only ever do when cleaning their faces. Welcome to Kamp Kronenberg, Jeffrey!

"Butterscotch"

“Butterscotch”

"Hershey"

“Hershey”

My boys, Butterscotch and Hershey, have been enjoying the living room all to themselves for a few days. Their favorite place to nap in the daytime is behind our red couch, and in the evening they sprawl out right in the middle of the room. Maybe they get a good view of Piper, stretched out in the middle of the hallway upstairs.

Tomorrow our favorite little guinea pig is coming for a visit. Jeffrey is the only piggy my boys have ever met, and after an initial wariness, they always warm up to him. I think Hershey is always bewitched by critters smaller than himself.

“Piper”

“Charlie”

Ever since Piper and Charlie started spending the whole day together, he’s been so much more active and seems like a younger rabbit. Lately, that also means getting into trouble that I wouldn’t have expected from a rabbit of mature years as well. So far Charlie is intent on “helping” me clean out his litter box, waking me up in the morning by chewing on the fence, destroying a cloth I had put on the fence to muffle said noise, and then covertly opening the room door. That one still surprises me.

I had put a small piece of felt at the bottom of the door to prevent Piper from chewing on the paint and Charlie figured out that could pull on that to get the door open. He woke me up once doing it, so I closed the door tight. Unfortunately it must not have latched because minutes later he had it open again! Not so shabby for 7 and a half!

Not to be outdone, Piper made her move when my mom had opened a low desk drawer that she happens to keep a bag of Craisins in. Piper must have smelled them through the bag, because the drawer was only open for a minute but she swooped in, grabbed the bag, and took off with it. My mom got it back, (fortunately sans chew marks) but of course she had to give Piper a Craisin for her efforts.

Oh, and the flower pot in the photo above, seconds after the picture was taken, she tossed it around, leaving a nice dirt-mess for me to clean up.
