“Hershey & Piper”

Earlier this week, my Hershey decided to go exploring. I had been leaving the gate to their room open, as they hadn’t gone off their rug onto the tile floor. One night when I came into the living, I saw a little black blob next to the TV. Hershey had decided the tile was no match for him. Over the next couple of days, whenever I left the gate open long enough, Hershey would come out to explore, supervised of course. One night it was bedtime, but he was too busy hopping around the kitchen to go to bed.

Yesterday we were eating dinner and he hopped all the way over to Piper and Cameron’s side of the house. I put a fence up to keep him out of their area, and she came out for a visit. She was NOT happy that he was near “her” turf, but he was. He was so chill, he even decided to lie down for a nap, right near her. Piper may be the princess, but Hershey is the king and he lets everyone know it.

New House, Same Rabbits

“Butterscotch & Hershey”

I brought down Butterscotch and Hershey this past weekend and now all four of our rabbits are safe and adjusting in our new home. The trip was harder on the boys, as they’re both 8 years old. Butters has always had issues with eating and stasis, and the stress of the trip combined with stress from car rides to prepare him for the trip meant he was not happy. He didn’t eat much the two travel days, and has slowly started to eat better as he settles in here.

Hershey wasn’t thrilled with the car ride, but liked all the extra treats that he stole from Butters, who didn’t want them. They have a room all to themselves, but can see our other rabbits on the other side of the house, across the living room. I don’t know if they will walk on the tile yet, so fence for now. The other two will not, but Hershey won’t let any obstacles stand in his way if he’s properly motivated.

Bring on the Bunny Thunder!

“Piper”

Our new house has concrete floors under the carpet while our old one had wood, and the rabbits are so much louder on the concrete. Bunny runs, either for fun or if they get startled, sound much louder. The ceilings are also higher, which means more echo effect so it often sounds like a rocket taking off instead of a rabbit. This is especially striking when it’s in the middle of the night, for apparently no reason. And thumps, my god the thumps are supersonic now! Little Cameron’s thumps sound like fireworks. So now when they get startled, they raise enough of a ruckus to scare me too!

Hoppy 8th Buttersotch!

“Hershey”

Today is my Butterscotch’s 8th Birthday. We celebrated a couple of weeks ago when I was back in New York with an ice cream cake so that I wouldn’t miss it. Butters hasn’t been eating great lately, but he gobbled down all those birthday treats. Fruit and hay for bunnies, ice cream for the humans!

Hershey always seems to eat something off the birthday cakes. When it’s fruit, I understand, but this time it was a small piece of fondant. Even I don’t like to eat that! He’s got an iron stomach that one, so I don’t think it hurt him. I quickly took the cake away though. It’s better than when he nibbled on a piece of candle!

“Cameron & Piper”

My Cameron and Piper are getting settled in at our new house. Oddly enough their favorite spot in under a chair in my bedroom. If I can’t find them, that’s where they usually are. I’m keeping closets mostly closed now, as that’s where a lot of boxes and things without homes yet are being kept, so of course that just makes them want to rush in whenever I open one up. They don’t seem to really get the concept of “bunny-safe.” They just want to explore everywhere new, and of course mark it as theirs.
