“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!

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!

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.

“Toby”

I had a nice petting session with Penny and Annie yesterday. Penny sat down next to my feet and presented her head for petting. i was happy to oblige. Annie jumped up on the couch with me and lay down on the cushion next to me and snuggled in for head rubs. Toby is not as much of a snuggle bunny, but that’s okay. He’s just about at the point where he tolerates me being in the pen with him. I can give his head a quick pet, and then he’s off. he definitely likes looking at his sisters for entertainment more than anything I can give him, which I get. Lots of bunnies are that way. As long as they all come running at meal time, I’m happy.

Bunny siblings Penny, Toby & Annie are visiting us again! It’s been a while since they’ve been here, but they’re all as sweet as I remember. Penny loves to munch on her hay and liked to lounge at her “window” looking at her little brother Toby. Toby alternated between looking at Penny on one side, and baby-sister Annie on the other. He’s a very attentive brother! Annie loved to explore her pen and was doing runs in the evening. She even went up on the couch and did some quick-turns up there. Zoom!

Litter Box Sharing

“Jasper & Molly”

“Bella”

I nearly sat in Jasper and Molly’s litter box while petting them yesterday. I was crouching down and the box was right behind me. Oops! Jasper looked at me as if to say,”Let me know when you’re done. I gotta use that!” I pet Annie for a long time last night. I also saw her dreaming and her face was making little twitches. Bunnies dreaming is always adorable.

My Butterscotch is doing this new thing when someone comes to pet him. He comes over in case they have food for him, then stealthily ducks his head away from actually being petted. Sneaky little boy. I didn’t know there was a toll for petting!

We gave my Bella a butt bath yesterday, and boy did she splash about. Her bottom has been getting a bit messy lately. It might be from the iron supplement she was getting every day, or from greens now that’s she’s eating better. We’re cutting back to every other day on the iron and I’m cutting down on greens as well. I want her to focus on pellets anyway since that’s what will put weight on her.

“Annie”

I don’t think Jasper and Molly really minded that they got a new roommate, but my boys were certainly interested. Hershey spent most of the day yesterday at the fence right next to Annie’s pen. I hope you said nice things to her boy!

Annie slept most of the afternoon, but woke up in the evening and did a few laps around her pen. Gotta get in that exercise! After that quick burst of energy she took a nap under the end table.

Good news about my Bella, she’s gaining weight. After starting the appetite stimulant again she’s gained several ounces and is back to her March weight. Pellets are flying out of the bowls and that also means more poops on the floor. Oh well, it’s worth it.

You Get the Bunny-Butt

“Molly & Jasper”

Our rabbit population rose again at Kamp Kronenberg. Annie bun is back again for the weekend! She was the first bun I sat for four years ago and is always welcome back.

My brother wanted to pet Molly and Jasper last night, but every time someone enters their pen, they get all excited and dance around, begging for food. Of course, most of the time we’re not feeding them, so they’re naturally disappointed. This time Jasper was so miffed that he didn’t even stick around to get petted, but hopped away and gave my brother “the bunny butt.”

For those who don’t speak rabbit, that means: “I’m mad at you so I’m not even going to look at you.” Jasper even glanced over his shoulder to make sure my brother got the message. Molly let him pet her though.

Later Molly was checking out my Butterscotch’s scruffy butt. It seems like all the rabbits are shedding right now. Gotta get that bathin’ suit body ready!

Another Pair of Bunny Brothers

“Snoopy & Budgie

Bunny brothers Snoopy and Budgie arrived yesterday afternoon! Annie doesn’t care very much about all the boys in the house. She just likes lounging under a cardboard box. She even pulled her pellet dish next to her so she didn’t have to get up to eat.

Snoopy is much more active and friendly than his last visit here. He spends a lot of time at the fence with his brother. Budgie has been all over the couch and did lots of runs. Both boys keep going over to the fence to see my boys. Budgie and Butterscotch look a lot alike so it’s cute to see them together. Budgie is a thumper like Butters too.

“Annie”

Annie the lop was the first rabbit to ever visit Kamp Kronenberg as a visitor about four years ago, and she’s finally back for another visit! It’s a short one, but my boys are glad to have her. As soon as she arrived, my Hershey came over to his fence to see her. I don’t know if she’s seen many other rabbits, but he’s a lot tinier than her. We had a nice long petting session in the evening. Big bunnies are such cuddlers.
