“Chase”

“Butterscotch”

Yesterday morning my dad woke me up because Butterscotch wasn’t eating his greens. H was refusing raisins too, so my mom and I knew he must be having a stasis episode. We medicated him, and then again and again, and finally, 5 hours later, he was back to normal. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bunny, he or Charlie, take that long to recover. His ears weren’t cold, he just was not hungry. We separated him and Hershey so I could leave him his food without having shoo away Hershey. I stayed with him all morning and then went in the kitchen to clean greens after lunch. I was so relieved when I finally saw him nibbling on some alfalfa hay! He’s back to normal now, it’s just so scary when it happens. Chase bunny didn’t seem to mind the extra attention going to Butters, but I think Hershey wasn’t happy until he was allowed back with his baby brother.

“Charlie”

“Rusty”

“Chase”

Rusty is going home today, and I think he’ll miss Chase bunny. He was always biting at the fence when she came near. She took a more laid back approach, positioning herself between Rusty and Hershey and Butterscotch, so she could get a good view of everyone.

Yesterday we clipped my Charlie’s nails. In the past he was super easy to do, but he was not that happy this time. It might be because we usually do it alone in the bathroom, but it’s too hot in there in the summer so we did it on a table in my mom’s room. He fussed, and so she had to help which made him fuss even more, but he was still not as bad as our Bella. Foster Butterscotch is due at the end of the week too.

“Chase”

“Rusty- the rabbit”

“Rusty- the Dalek”

Last night the bunnies and I all watched Doctor Who, and in this episode they called a “good” Dalek: Rusty! So every time anyone on TV said his name, little Rusty the rabbit looked up. It was so adorable. I had to tell him that they weren’t talking to him, but I don’t think he believed me. He’s eating all of this food now, he probably just needed a bit to adjust. I usually feed him first because of his proximity to the kitchen, and Chase is always climbing up her fence in excitement. She’s dancing in circles by the time I get her bowl over to her. Both of these bunnies like the bunny-cookies I make, so I’m glad I made a new batch last week. They’re gobbling them up!

“Rusty”

“Chase”

Fulton went home yesterday, and Rusty joined the house! He checked out Chase right away when he arrived and made a few little noises at her. He’s been chinning everything. No one tried to get out overnight, but Rusty must have been busy because he didn’t eat all of his food.

Snuggling on the Couch AGAIN!

“Chase”

“Fulton”

I lay down for a little nap on the couch last night, and who should join me up there, but Fulton. He hopped up next to my head, so I started petting him. He stayed there for quite a while and actually lay down himself. It was a bunny snuggle up on the couch. Can I keep him? Later that night I caught him doing runs on the webcam, and using the couch as an obstacle course. He’s been eating almost all of his greens and about half of his pellets (and all of his treats) too. I’m sure gonna miss him when he heads home tonight, but Rusty is coming to keep Chase and me company. Chase met Rusty when she was here in June so she might remember him. I hope they get along as well as Chase and Fulton have. These two are such well behaved sweethearts, my rabbits could take pointers (Sorry Charlie & Bella!).

“Fulton”

“Chase”

Last night I gave Fulton some metacam in a little dish, like I used to give Bella. He eventually lapped it up. I don’t know if it did anything, but he ate all of his greens overnight. Maybe it just took him a couple of days to get his appetite back. That often happens with the rabbits who come to visit. Fulton came up on the couch again withe me last night for petting, and with my mom as well. Chase and I had a nice time on the floor yesterday. She’s so sweet, she’s like a little bunny toy. I certainly don’t mind having her here for more than a week!

“Chase”

“Fulton”

I spent a very long time petting Chase on the floor last night. One hand on a bunny, another on my laptop. It’s a nice way to spend an evening. Then I went over to Fulton’s pen and sat on the couch. Instantly Fulton jumped up next to me, so I started petting him too. He stayed up there and let me pet him for half an hour! No bunny except for Budgie ever let me do that, and Fulton even lay down for a bit while I pet him. It was so nice! My brother was a little jealous because he spent the whole evening on that couch the night before and he never came up there once.

We gave Fulton some more meds yesterday evening, and he was more receptive to them. He ate almost all his greens last night and some pellets. HE still loves my biscuits though, so I’m glad I have those for him to eat. He’s probably filling up on them instead of his pellets, but at least it’s getting something in him!

“Fulton”

“Chase”

Fulton and Chase arrived yesterday and are our last bunnies of the summer. They seem to like one another. Fulton likes to sleep under a cardboard box next to the fence, and Chase right up against it. They can see each other through the window, but only approached one another a couple of times. I think Fulton is fine looking at her from afar.

Chase is eating great, and always up for a petting. I got her purring for a while yesterday. Fulton has been eating about half of his food. He always eats his papaya and bunny cookies. We medicated him last night to keep his appetite going, but he was not happy. We tried doing on the couch and he ran away, so we had to bring him in the kitchen, He fought me on the gas meds, but took the other ones without much fuss. I wonder if he just didn’t understand what we were trying to do. It was not easy to catch him though, and it stressed him out, so if we do medicate again, it’ll only be once a day.

“Chase”

“Rusty”

Yesterday afternoon we gave Chase’s nails a little clipping. We’ve turned into a full service bunny spa. She has dark nails like Hershey, but wasn’t as fussy about my clipping. I wish we could just give them some kind of a brick they could rub them down themselves. Bella did that a little to her front nails when she was digging at my wall in her cave. Fortunately Chase wasn’t very upset and was happy to let me pet her later in the day. She even put her paws up on me and begged for a cookie I was eating.

Rusty is going home today, and I’m sure Chase will miss him. She’s leaving tomorrow though so she’ll just have the boys in the dining room for a little while longer. I don’t think she’ll mind being a solo bun back at home. She’ll be the center of attention again!

“Rusty”

“Chase”

Chase and Rusty appear to be quite comfortable with each other. I think she reminds Rusty of his little stuffed friend, but better since she’s a real rabbit. Apparently he likes her so much that he tried to bust out of his pen to see her. This morning my parents witnessed Rusty vaulting his 2 foot fence and hopping up onto the back of the couch. He walked along there for a minute before my mom picked him and put him back into his pen. Sneaky boy. We’ll have to make sure he has the taller fences all around his pen now.
