“Stella”

I started decorating our Christmas tree yesterday and little Rusty was biting at the fence the whole time. Maybe he wanted to help. Or eat the tree. Sorry boy, it’s artificial. Stella likes to sleep at my feet when I sit on the couch and nudges my leg for pets. Either that or she just wanted to lay there and my leg was in her way. She did keep tugging at my pants until I pet her, so it’s probably the former.

 

 

Finding the Perfect Sleeping Spot

My dad cut up a big box for Stella to lay under, since she’s been sleeping under a small table. So far she seems to still prefer the table, so maybe it’s the location that she likes. She also likes sleeping up against the couch, even when I’m not sitting on it. She was up on the couch again this morning, briefly. She gets so excited when she gets fed. It only took one day but she already knows when she sees me that I’m going to be giving her something. Rusty definitely likes having her to watch. Whenever he wakes up from his nap, he always hangs out at the window where he can see her. I don’t think she’s as interested in him as he is in her, but there are two other boys that have caught her eye. Good thing there’s a lot of her to go around!

Big Girls Are More Fun

"Rusty & Stella"

“Rusty & Stella”

Stella bunny arrived yesterday and lay down for petting right away. She’s such a big sweetie. All the boys came over to see her. Rusty was  biting at his fence all evening, trying to get closer to her. He certainly likes the big girl! She joined me on the couch once  after dinner. Rusty spent a lot of time on his couch with me, as per usual. Stella preferred mostly laying at my feet for pets. She kept coming over and stretching out right under my feet. I can see we’re going to get along very well!

Yesterday after dinner I walked into the living room to find Rusty asleep in the middle of the couch. He certainly doesn’t waste any time. We had several long petting sessions yesterday, but starting today he will have to share me with another visiting bun. He is an only bun at home so he’s not used to sharing. He’ll get used to it. The new bun is also a girl so I’m sure he’ll be excited to see her!

“Me & Rusty”

Since Glenda has gone home, it’s just Rusty with us until tomorrow. He made himself right at home. It’s going to be a long stay this time, so I’m glad he’s getting comfortable, picking out his favorite napping spots.

Bunnies are always trying to teach us new things. For instance, the subtle difference between nose nudges. Sometimes they could mean, “pet me,” and other times, “get outta my way!” There is also the single and double tap that can vary depending on the bun. You definitely don’t want to mistake one for another and wind up getting a bite for your ignorance!

“Budgie & Snoopy”

Budgie and Snoopy went home this morning, and Glenda will be leaving later today. There won’t be any empty time though since Rusty is arriving this afternoon. Lots of bunny traffic today!

Every bun had some cranberry sauce last night, except Budgie. He sniffed it, but would not even take a lick. When his brother Snoopy ate his he did the bunny butt-twitch, which means he really liked it!

After eating a big dinner with the other humans, I lay down on the couch in Budgie’s pen. He jumped up onto me almost immediately. I just wish he hadn’t chosen my face, but fortunately he doesn’t weigh much. He snuggled in on my chest while he licked my arm and I pet him with the other. I’m thankful for bunnies to snuggle with!

Hoppy Thanksgiving!

Hoppy Thanksgiving from all the Kronenbuns and our holiday visitors! My Piper isn’t wasting anytime chowing down today, and ate a big hole of hay in her litter box. To be fair, it did have clover in it, and that’s like Sweet Potato Pie to a rabbit. I usually let all the buns in the house try my mother’s homemade cranberry sauce, and I imagine most will scarf it all up!

Last night my mom pet Glenda for a long time, but when she stopped, Glenda started thumping. “I didn’t say you could stop, human!” Later she did some runs and all of the boys came over to the fence to watch her. It was adorable. Snoopy lifted up one of his ears, to listen in and my Hershey had that big smile on his face that I swear I can see.

 

A New Spring in His Hop

“Glenda”

Last night I had a very long snuggle with Budgie. He sat on my lap for about 20 minutes. He’d lick my hand for a while, then he would nudge his head under my hand, subtly letting me know that it was my turn to do the grooming. It’s certainly a nice way to keep your lap warm on cold evenings.

Later Snoopy started digging in his carrier again when Glenda came over to the fence. I had to take it out of his pen before he made a big mess. Glenda has certainly put a spring in his hop! A younger woman can do wonders for an older man, at least in the bunny world. My Piper has certainly made my eight-year-old Charlie feel younger.

“Snoopy”

Glenda arrived yesterday and is so excited to be here. She did runs right away and made a ruckus. All four boys came over to see her, even Snoopy. I woke up this morning to find that he had dug all the newspaper out of his carrier in an attempt to dig into her pen. I wasn’t expecting that from him! Budgie can see her through Snoopy’s pen, but he was content to make me the center of his attention last night. So far my boys, Butterscotch and Hershey have been pretty well behaved. They’re less than a foot away from Glenda. Butterscotch lay down and looked at her all evening, so I know he’s enjoying her stay!

We’re getting one more bun here for Thanksgiving. And the best part is, it’s a girl! Glenda is coming and she will be the only girl among four boys. I’m sure she’ll be very popular. She’s going next to Snoopy so we’ll see if having a female neighbor gets him to do some more hopping around. He sleeps most of the day, as a bun of his age is apt to do. He was sleeping up against the fence this morning, right next to Budgie. Budgie loves snuggling, whether it’s his brother, the couch, me or just my sweater, he’s a very cuddly bun.
