“Nicki”

Last night there were some fireworks in the neighborhood, and whenever there is fireworks, I always check on all the buns to make sure that no one is freaking out. Everybun here was fine though, I’d say mine are pretty used to it at this point as long as it’s not the Fourth of July. After they ended, Nicki started noisily digging on the couch, like he wanted to join in! Sadie likes to bite the bottom edge of the couch in her pen, I don’t know why. That’s why she’s in the pen with the older couch though. It’s just one giant chew toy!

“Sadie”

Sadie had a great time running all over her pen last night. She takes a few breaks to chew up some cardboard and hop up onto the couch. She certainly likes the view she gets from up there! Nicki was a little curious about her. He also went up on his couch to get a better view of her. I opened up the “windows” between their pens and Sadie went right over to scope out the boys in town. Both little buns gave me couch snuggles, which are always appreciated!

“Nicki”

Nicki has a female roommate now, so he’s been taking lots of baths to get himself looking sharp for her. Sadie is visiting us again and is already up to her usual tricks. I’ve put lots of cardboard around her pen and she’s ripping it up. This little girl has the energy to match Nicki, and they’re about the same size. I’ll open up the “window” between their pens this evening so they can get acquainted.

“Nicki”

I had some nice cuddles with Nicki on the couch last night. I think he slept all night up there. When I found him this morning he was flopped out on the cushions. This bunny knows how to enjoy the good life. He seems to prefer the left side, which is fine, I can sit on the right. He put his paws on my lap but didn’t climb in. He’s incredibly curious though and always comes over to the fence when someone walks past the living room.

“Nicki”

Sweet little Nicki bunny is visiting us again. He just loves to sit there and have his head rubbed. I could fit his whole head in the palm of my hand! What a cutie-pie. He’s so full of energy too. Last night he did tons of bunny runs and binkys. It doesn’t take much energy to propel that little body around, but he’s sure got a lot of it!

Eating Bunnies = Happy Humans

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

So far my Butterscotch has been stasis free for the last few weeks. He’s been on 0.5ml of Reglan every night at bedtime and we cut out his greens. Since I noticed that he tended to get stasis in the morning, a couple of hours after eating greens, I don’t think greens first thing in the morning were a good idea for him. I do plan on introducing greens back in the evening for him, but he’s never been a big greens eater to begin with. As long as all the buns come running and chow down at mealtime, I’m happy.

Mystery of White Poop

“Piper & Charlie”

A couple of weeks ago I noticed some white on my Charlie’s poops. That’s usually calcium deposits from urine but since Charlie has had sludge issues in the past, I kept a close eye on it. Yes, I keep a close eye on poop, that is one of my hobbies now! I added some more water to his greens and swapped the calcium-rich dandelion for some green leaf lettuce and so far I haven’t seen any more white deposits. The last thing I want for him is to go through another bladder flush, so keeping down calcium intake, making him move a lot, and giving him plenty of fluids is key. No sludge means a happy bunny!

Petting & Snuggling

“Toby”

I had a nice long snuggle with Annie on the couch last night. Toby was watching us from his litter box for part of the time. He likes to sleep under the end table on the shelf, but when I come and sit in his pen and put my feet on the edge of the shelf, he hops out. “There’s only room for one of us on that shelf!” I gave Penny some more grooming and head pets. She’s a little more sedentary now so once she settles in for petting, she’s in it for a while!

“Annie”

Yesterday Toby let me pet him for a bit. He snuggled next to his litter box and let me get in a few head rubs. He’s a real sweetie once he warms up to you. He’s so very much like my Charlie, checking up on all the other buns. Annie is always jumping up onto the couch to see what’s happening and Toby can see her from the end of his pen. I’d imagine he’s telling her, “Be careful up there, Annie!” Penny is more sedentary as a nine-year old, but Toby makes sure that’s she’s okay, every time she comes over to the fence. He’s the designated thumper If there’s anything wrong, he sounds the alarm by thumping until a human comes to investigate.

More Hay, Please!

“Penny”

I just got a fresh bale of hay from our local Agway and the buns are all loving it so far. I think there might be some clover in it, but not so much that’s it’s an issue for my “diet” buns and my sludge-prone Charlie. It’s green and soft and not very dusty. The only problem I have with it now is that they keep gobbling it up and I have to keep putting down more! All four of my rabbits and all three of our visitors approve. I think Penny, Toby or Annie are pretty good about eating hay, but not all of my buns are. Charlie and Butterscotch (the stasis prone buns) do not really like hay, so I always try to have at least some good hay around for them. Sometimes that means bagged hay from Oxbow, or 3rd cut hay from Small Pet Select. Hay with clover is always welcomed, if I can get it.
