Hoppy Bunny-Butt Friday from Cameron! His hobbies include lounging, chatting with his bunny-neighbors, eating Timothy Gold hay, doing binkys and being adorable! Everybun in the house is loving their Timothy Gold hay from American Pet Diner. I don’t know what it is about it, but all the buns are gobbling it up like candy! I’m so glad to see even Charlie, who is not a good hay eater at all, wolfing it down. Hay: Keeping stasis and poopy-butts at bay!

“Cameron & Butterscotch”

Yesterday my foster Cameron had a visitor. Fellow LIRRG volunteer and wonderful lady, Denise, came to give Cameron a reiki session. We learned some interesting things from Cameron, but most importantly, he doesn’t seem to be in distress. This was reinforced by his recent antics whenever he sees either Butterscotch or Hershey across the fences. He gets so excited, and binkys, sometimes tipping over a bit in the process. He does seem less wobbly than earlier in the month too. Aside from the occasional tip, you’d hardly know he was “special needs.”

Does My Rabbit Want a Friend?

“Hershey & Cameron”

Over the past few days, Cameron has been having a great time in the living room. Whenever Hershey or Butterscotch come over to the fence, he hops over and has conversations with them through the fence. He was rescued with four other rabbits in Baldwin, so maybe he misses the rabbit-company. A rabbit I rescued last summer, Zelda, also seemed to perk up when she was being fostered next to another rabbit. She was alone when rescued, but who knows what life was like before that. Cameron is a very chill guy and I believe Zelda is a peppy little girl, so personality doesn’t seem to make big difference in whether or not a rabbit would like a friend. My Charlie seemed very independent, but when we fostered Bella, he immediately fell in love and “made” us keep her for him. Maybe we can find Cameron a forever home with a bunny-mate to have all to himself.

Cameron’s Motor Gets Running

“Cameron”

Last night when Cameron came out to run around in the evening, he met my Hershey at the fence. He got so excited that he started doing bunny runs around the couch. I have not seen him move this fast since he came back to us in Feb. He was never a very big runner before that, so this was surprising to see from him. He was having such a good time that he did not want to go back in his pen. usually he hops back in there to lay down or use the litter box, but he was quite content to run around some more, sniffing at Hershey and  Butterscotch for a while longer.

“Leonidas”

Last night Misty hopped up onto the couch, just after I had left her pen. I don’t think she was looking for a cuddle, but rather a higher vantage point. That way she can see Leonidas better, peer over at Hershey and Butterscotch, catch Cameron in the hall, and maybe catch a glimpse of Piper and Charlie upstairs. Misty and Leo are going home today, but there’s still plenty of bunnies in the house to keep me busy!

Misty hasn’t really wanted much to do with me during her visit. She would much rather sit at the fence, next to Leonidas, admiring him. All Leonidas cares about is his food. That’s generally the impression I get from most rabbits. They want their food, and company of other rabbits. Humans are just the tools that get them those things. Once you get used to that, you don’t mind getting ignored by a fluffy little bunny-butt!

Cardboard on Windows and Plastic on Doors

“Leonidas”

When I opened up the cardboard “window” between their pens today, Butterscotch came over to look. Then Misty ran towards her fence, and he retreated into his pen. Misty is such a little flirt. Leonidas was watching this from his spot at the fences between their pens. He may be somewhat blind, but he knows what’s going on!

Today I repaired, repainted, and then protected the bottom of my bedroom door. For months now, both Charlie and Piper have decided it is a chew toy, even when the door is open with plenty of room. I had tried fabric first, but Charlie was able to grab ahold and open the door all by himself when it was closed! Then I tried thin plastic and thin fabric, but Piper just took big bites out of those. Now I have thick plastic that is for protecting corners. I also put it on some wallpapered wall corners that they have been chewing on. Hopefully this stuff will be more bunny-proof!

Gimme Greens, I’m Irish!

My foster bunny Cameron wishes everyone a Hoppy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m about 1/4 Irish, so while he’s in this house, that makes him Irish too!

Misty hadn’t really been eating her greens much, which happens sometimes. I always try and give buns what they’ll like the most to cut down on the waste, so I tried a few different things, and now she is finishing her greens just like her boy Leo. Now she just has to catch up to him on pellets, but the way he speed eats, I don’t think that’s going to happen!

Psst! I See You!

Leonidas moves around very well for a blind bunny. I swear, he must have some vision. He seems to know what is going on all of the time. I know rabbits do rely a lot on their sense of hearing and smell, but if I didn’t know his vision was limited, I would never have guessed. He lays at the fence near Misty for part of the day, and behind the couch for the rest. Misty mostly stays by the fence. I think she wants to be close by in case he hops over.

Permission to Pet?

Tonight Leonidas came over to me and snuggled in so I pet him. At first he snapped his mouth at me, but didn’t bite. I let him sniff me and then went to pet his head so he understood. He started purring almost immediately. I kept talking to him, telling him how good a boy he was, and he just kept on purring. He’s so soft, it’s certainly a joy to pet him!

Misty was watching from the other side of the fence. I opened up the cardboard barrier between her pen and my boys so Hershey came over to look at her for a while. He didn’t fuss like he usually does. Maybe he remembers her from when she was here before.
