Today was the date our vet calculated as our foster Cameron’s birthday. He is 2 years old, and since it was Memorial Day, I made themed cupcakes for the humans to eat. He was not amused by the fireworks decorations. He got to enjoy some banana, papaya tablets, Oxbow cookies and raisins. He also got a nice pen cleaning for his birthday, with a redo of his some of his setup. Since he’s a little better on balance, I took some of the bumpers out his pen. He’s been starting to rip them up and pull them out, so I didn’t want to keep fighting him on it. He still has bumpers opposite the litter box and in the corner where he sleeps to keep it nice and cozy.

Did You Hear That?

“Rusty”

Someone set of fireworks at 11:30 last night in our neighborhood. Either that or someone’s garage blew up. Could have been both I suppose. The bunnies all seemed okay. Cameron was sitting up in his pen, looking a little confused. I might have heard Butterscotch thump a little, but he thumps at everything. Rusty was grooming his stuffed bunny friend, and Piper was snuggling with Charlie. I worry about her since she’s got such big ears, she hears everything more acutely. She is not a happy girl on July 4th.

A Clean Bottom = Happy Bunny

“Charlie”

Last night all Rusty wanted was petting. He came up on the couch shortly after I sat down in his pen, and nudged at me until I started petting him. I gave my little man Charlie a bath before dinner and then groomed his “dry” bottom after dinner. His arthritis means that he tends to stay wet along the inside of his legs. I may need to step up on managing his arthritis. I’m bringing him into the vet along with Butterscotch in a week to see what I can do. He’s getting 250 mg of glucosamine powder every day in a blueberry, but he can’t really have Metacam because of his kidneys. Hopefully I’ll be able to help make him a little more comfortable.

Share the Couch!

“Rusty”

I was lying down on the couch last night for a bit, and Rusty startled me by jumping right onto my throat. At least it wasn’t my face, and fortunately he’s a small guy. He hopped down the length of my body before jumping down onto the floor at my feet. Then, he jumped back up and I tried to pet him. He was not interested though and jumped down after he was done exploring again. I guess he thinks that couch isn’t big enough for two!

“Rusty”

Rusty bunny is visiting for the weekend. He’s a total couch-bunny and loves to sit up there all evening and be petted. Last night he was a bit more interested in exploring, but that’s fine too. I’m used to being used as a jungle gym for rabbits!

“Cameron”

I had a big grooming session over the weekend. My foster bun Cameron is in the middle of a big shed right now. He started shedding in the middle of his back and has a shed line going out in a circle. His head is shedding too, starting at his forehead. I had him up on the kitchen counter for around 20 minutes plucking out the shedded fur. He was a very good boy throughout, just sitting there, waiting. He got some raisins at the end for being so good. I also groomed my Piper, and boy does she not like it!

Cameron *Hearts* Lola

“Lola”

This morning when I opened up the cardboard “shutters” that I put up at night between the rabbits, my foster Cameron became very excited. I think he liked seeing Lola. She’s a very pretty girl! He was digging at the bumpers in his pen and biting on the fence, which he usually doesn’t do. I don’t usually let him out his pen until the evening when someone is around to monitor him, because he has some balance issues. Today I decided to let him out for the whole day. I figured after he ran around for a while he would settle in one spot and go to sleep for the day. He eventually did, behind the couch.

Gimme Another Drink!

“Lola”

Lola bunny is a heavy drinker, of water! Some buns seem to drink more water than others. Sometimes it has to do with how much greens vs. hay they eat. It can also be indicative of a medical issue. My Charlie is a pretty good drinker and he has kidney issues. He always likes his water topped off with fresh, cold water every night. Something you have to watch out for with heavy drinkers, is that what goes in, must come out! That can make for more soaked litter boxes. That’s why I prefer wood pellets over newspaper. It’s more absorbent so I don’t have to clean boxes as often.

“Lola”

Lola is a happy-go-lucky bunny. She likes to flop down in the middle of the floor and cuddle with her stuffed animals. Ever seen a bunny who has a pet pig? Lola does! Stella bunny was nudging me last night for petting. There’s a lot of buns in the house right now and Stella doesn’t like to share attention. “Pet me now, human!”

Thudding Runs

“Stella”

“Lola”

Lola bunny is visiting us again. She’s such a bundle of energy. She started doing bunny runs immediately after arriving. The lops seem to have a little more “junk in the trunk” so that makes for extra noisy thuds as her little (or not so little!) feet thunder across her pen. All the boys downstairs took notice that a girl was in town!
