It sure is a relief when all of the bunnies in the house are behaving. It’s so nice to be able to take a break from everything else going on and just sit down to pet a bunny. Of course, the bunny has to be willing to be petted, but fortunately for me, most in my house do. And with so many options, there’s usually always one in the mood. Stella is always in the mood, as is Benita. Uriel is a little more shy about it. Butterscotch and Hershey usually just want to keep to themselves, but Piper will always melt for petting. My Charlie is special, because he will usually only let me pet him. He didn’t used to be a fan, but now will almost always let me pet him when I ask. He just sinks into the ground and purrs his teeth, instantly relaxing.

Ready for Petting!

“Uriel”

Last night my Hershey was checking out Stella at the fence. After staring at her for a few minutes, he flopped into the fence for a nap, announcing said nap with a fence clang. When I go into Stella’s pen now, she’s usually asleep behind the couch. My routine has become, sit down on the couch, and lean back and announce myself, and out she comes for a petting session. I don’t know if she prefers my foot or my hand at this point, but she likes both.

Benita always jumps up when someone enters the living room. She’s always begging for something! Uriel comes over to see what’s going on too, but he doesn’t gobble down treats like she does. He loves his banana and Oxbow cookies, but the rest he takes his time eating.

More Bunnies, More Fun

“Benita”

So far all my living room buns are getting along just fine. Once Stella realized that I had to make her pen smaller because a cute little boy bun was moving in next door, she was fine. She spent ┬áthe evening camped out to see him. Uriel came over to see her too, but he’s a little shy and she’s a whole lot of woman! Benita didn’t mind sharing his attention, but she usually sleeps along their shared fence, just in case he needs her reassuring big-sister presence.

Two More Buns for Me!

Stella got a pair of new roommates today. Benita and Uriel are back! This brother and sister pair have already made themselves comfy. Stella hasn’t come over to say hello yet but I’m sure Uriel will love the double ladies on either side. It’s nap time now so every bun has found a good spot and will probably stay there for the next few hours. This evening is when everyone will come to play!

Thunder Buns

“Stella”

Last night when I went to visit Stella in her pen, she was there waiting for me to pet her. She was laying down next to the couch and got right up when I came in. She still likes me to pet her with my foot, which can sometimes be more of a challenge than my hands. All for the bunnies!

We had a big thunderstorm here this morning. Stella went to her safe spot behind the couch and settled in for the thunder. The boys all seemed okay, but Piper ran to be with her Charlie. She’s three times his size, but she always runs to him for protection.

 

Purrs Between My Feet

“Stella”

Last night I sat down by Stella and she came over and lay down on my foot, then she nudged her head under my other foot. I guess she wanted my “other hand” to pet her. I took my shoe off and obliged her. Then she started purring. It’s the oddest thing to feel a rabbit purring between my feet. It was Stella sandwich, extra purr!

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

Whenever I pet Stella, she lays down on my foot, effectively trapping me in place. “No leaving until I say so! Keep petting, human slave!” Fortunately for her, I’m happy to oblige, at least until my foot falls asleep. My Hershey and Butterscotch spent a lot of time in the evening yesterday laying just opposite Stella’s pen, looking at her through the window. I think she’d had enough at one point because she went behind the couch and flopped. I guess somebunny likes to have some privacy at nap time.

Big Bun of Sweetness

After a little cleaning and construction last night, now my boys have a better view of the lovely Lady Stella. I don’t think she cares very much though. All that seems to concern her is getting her food, and lots of petting when someone comes in her pen. When a big bunny like her melts onto the floor during petting, she turns into a floor rug. You really get a good idea of just how big she is. Rabbits of her size can be intimating to some people, (even some small dogs!) but she is just the sweetest bun you could ever find.

“Stella”

Glenda bunny is shedding up a storm, but I’m making sure to groom her every couple of days. She is not a fan though, so I’ve been picking up her litter box after she hops in and putting it on a high table. She fusses, but doesn’t have anywhere to go, so I’m able to groom her for a while like that. I have to do the same with my boys and Piper. Charlie is pretty good about it, always has been. He’s my smartie bun though. Stella’s not shedding very much, but she is chill enough that I can groom fur from her face. She’s an incredibly calm bunny, which is a good thing when they’re as big as she is!

“Glenda”

I was out all day yesterday, so my mom looked after all the bunnies for me. Fortunately, they didn’t give her too much trouble. All the girls in the house, Stella, Glenda and Piper wanted lots of petting, and my mom obliged. The girls in the house are more cuddly than the boys right now. You could start petting them and keep going for hours before they would tell you to stop, usually when one of you has to go to the bathroom.
