“Jasper & Molly”
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.

“Jasper & Molly”
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.

“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!

“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 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.

“Annie & Penny”
King Kirby and his princesses are heading home today. For some reason, my Bella loves looking down at these visitors. She usually isn’t very interested in the visitors but for some reason he likes these guys. Maybe she’s got a thing for King Kirby? Don’t worry Princess Penny, Charlie’s not letting her go anytime soon!
I took a little map on the couch last night, or rather tried to, as Annie kept catapulting up on me. She’s not the first rabbit to do that, but she’s probably the most persistent. Later on she discovered the blanket on the couch also makes a very nice tunnel to play in. She’s explored that for a while.
I had some crackers in the afternoon and it spurred a flurry of activity centered in my lap. I guess Kirby and Penny thought I had something yummy. I showed them both bag, assuming they wouldn’t be interested, and fortunately I was right. They each had a sniff and then hopped away. Phew! Snack crisis averted.

“Kirby & Penny”
The last couple of days it’s been very sunny and Kirby just loves snoozing the sunlight. He’s always so warm when I got pet him since his black coat soaks up all the rays. Some buns seek it out, others don’t. Penny prefers to sleep under her cardboard box, but Kirby likes to lie in the sun all morning. He just looks so contented. Ah to be a bunny! Annie keeps trying to steal my drink, even if it’s just iced tea. She only seems to ignore it when I have water. I can’t have a straw when I’m in her pen either as she steals it! I can’t even put the drink on a table, because she’s taken over that as well. Oh well. Must be vigilant.
I bake my own banana bunny cookies to give our rabbits and the visitors, and I made a new batch last week. Surface space is at a premium in our house, so I left the cookie tray on my chair at the kitchen table after it had cooled, overnight. In the morning Butterscotch and Hershey are allowed in the kitchen. Well Butters made a beeline for my chair, jumped up and started eating the cookies! Luckily my dad was there to stop him from eating them all, but ever since then he always checks that chair in the kitchen for something good.

Last night I lay down on the couch for a little while and Annie wanted to join me. She jumped up onto the pillow I had my head on and the next thing I see is a rabbit in the air, flying right at me. Ah!! Later, she stole the straw from my juice, and then stuck her head in my glass to try and get a sip. Not to be outdone, Kirby climbed into my lap when he heard me eating crackers. I offered him one but he refused it. I don’t know what he thought I had, but it wasn’t what he wanted.
Butterscotch is enjoying having other bunnies to watch. He was sitting up on a chair for a while in the evening to get a better view. He can look Annie in the eye when she’s up on the coffee table!

“Penny & Kirby “
The annex stopped working yesterday because Penny discovered it, (she learns fast) so I’ve been giving Kirby his pellets throughout the evening when I’m in their pen. Whenever Kirby comes over to me, I put down his pellet bowl and vitamin, and then play interference with Penny by petting her until he’s had his fill for the moment. Then I repeat. Twice last night Penny started licking my leg a lot. I don’t know if she’s trying to butter me up to get some of Kirby’s pellets, or if she’s just saying thanks for petting her. Either way it’s very sweet. I hope my pants don’t taste too bad!
Annie didn’t manage to escape at all yesterday, yay! She’s still trying though. She’s learned that the fastest way to get across the pen isn’t running around the floor but rather jumping up onto the coffee table, running/sliding across, and then jumping down off the end. This little girl has no fear. She also likes to periscope while standing at the edge of the table. Doesn’t she know bunnies are fragile?? My brother spent some time with her yesterday but she wasn’t interested in petting, just running across his lap and trying to climb up his back. At least she’s providing entertainment for Butterscotch and Hershey!

I had a long petting session with Kirby yesterday afternoon. He’s a such a soft silky guy. When I went over to greet Penny this morning he was in the litter box, but he bolted right over to Penny when I went to pet her. I don’t know if he wanted pets or just wanted to protect his lady, but it was sweet.
Last night it was raining hard and suddenly Kirby and Penny got up he chirped and thumped several times. I thought it was from the rain and I tried to calm him, but then my mom noticed that Bella and Charlie were upstairs in the hall looking down on Kirby. He must have seen my big white bunny up there and gotten upset! Bella has spent a lot of time sitting at the top of the stairs looking down. She isn’t usually this interested, but maybe she likes these guys.
Little Annie is certainly keeping me on my toes. I gave her the couch back in the afternoon when I came to spend time in the living room. She immediately sneaked behind the couch and I had to adjust the pillows twice to stop her from doing it again. Then Later in the evening I was in Penny and Kirby’s pen and Annie found a way to squeeze down the side of the couch. She did this 3 times and each time I thought I had fixed it and went back into the other pen. Finally I had to clip a stuffed animal to the fence to block the hole and that worked. At least she doesn’t jump up on the back. I still want her to have the couch in the evening. She’s just so cute when she runs around up there.
