“Noelle”

Noelle is a feisty little girl, but she’s pretty chill if I leave her to her own devices. She liked when my Cameron came over to the fences and hopped by to sniff at him and say hello. I’m sure he loves that as he always loves to “chat” with other buns. I wonder what he’s talking about all the time. Cheeks is such a mush. I went in her pen this morning to chage her water and while I’m standing there, picking up the bowl, she comes over and lies down next my ankles. She gave them a lick, so I had to give her a few pets before changing her water. Those buns always know how to con you out of something!

“Cheeks”

Noelle is visiting us for the first time, and she is such a little cutie. I haven’t really been able to pet her yet, but that’s okay. She’s curious and had fun exploring her pen. Her favorite place to sleep is under the table in her pen, snuggled with her blanket. My Cameron was excited to meet her. She’s one of the smallest rabbits he’s met, even a little smaller than him. Cheeks spent the evening facing her pen, letting her know a friendly face was on the side of the fence.

Foot Petting: Yea or Nay?

“Glenda”

Cheeks came over to my foot last night to snuggle. She likes to lick my ankles so I started to pet her with my foot. Some rabbits are fine with having a foot pet them, “No different than a hand to me!” Others are taken aback by this grave offence to their rabbit-hood, “How dare you pet me with that gross thing you walk around on?!” You don’t always know which rabbit you’re going to get, but usually a disapproving rabbit will just hop away rather than retaliate with a bite. Glenda is another rabbit who is fine with any kind of petting. I may not have as good articulation with my foot, but it’s nice to not have to bend down when the rabbit wants to pancake on the floor.

Fireworks for Butterscotch’s Birthday

Today is my Butterscotch’s birthday, and us humans ate an ice cream cake in his honor last night. I decorated it with some bunny-approved decorations that Butterscotch promptly helped himself to. I got him this big willow twig tunnel, but I’m not sure he’s a fan. I’m not worried; one of my other four rabbits will probably find some use for it!

The occasional fireworks didn’t seem to bother any of the buns in the house last night. I told Butterscotch they were for his birthday since he’s one of my more scaredy buns. I don’t think that would really help though! Glenda isn’t bothered and Cheeks took a cue from her. Thank goodness for loud fans!

“Glenda”

Today, in celebration of America’s Independence Day, my family is officially adopting our foster rabbit Cameron. He’s a special needs guy who wobbled into our hearts. He loves our other rabbits, and even though he isn’t bonded to anyone, enjoys his time with them through fences. That’s how he’ll be celebrating today, with the two lovely ladies, Cheeks and Glenda. I’ll put the AC and white noise machine on high to protect them from outside fireworks noises. Humans like fireworks, but most pets don’t. Rabbits are especially sensitive with their big ears, so it’s best to close, and lock, all windows and crank up the fans. With our recent warm temperatures, that’s no trouble here!

“Glenda”

Glenda and Cheeks are having a good time as roommates at camp. They both get so excited when anyone walks in the living room. “Is it snack time?!” It’s usually not, but they don’t care! They are both generally well-behaved ladies, which is a nice change from the messy boys that I’m used to. I have 4 boys of my own right now, and my oldest Charlie is the messiest of them all. He’s almost 10 years old though, so it’s not his fault. Some other younger buns who like to pee all over the floor though….

Welcome, All Bunnies!

“Cheeks”

There were fireworks at our local park last night, and the bunnies in the house were NOT happy about it. Piper is my big girl, but she’s got big ears and fantastic hearing, so she’s always upset around loud noises. Fortunately she had a human to try and calm her down. Butterscotch also is a nervous bun, so he started thumping, which set off Cheeks. My foster Cameron looked around, wondering if he was supposed to be afraid of something, but wasn’t sure. Ultimately he just hung out in his pen. Glenda bunny arrived today and Cameron is already coming over to say hello to her. He’s our welcoming committee!

Can I Chew on That?

“Cheeks”

Last night Cheeks hopped up into the coffee table and proceed to chew on the cardboard box I use as a stand for my laptop. That’s fine as long as she’s not chewing on my laptop! With a bunny like Cheeks, you can always get her to stop whatever she’s doing by giving her head a few rubs. She looks like a bigger version of my Charlie, but he was never as much of a cuddle bug as she is!

“Cheeks”

Cheeks bunny hopped up on the couch with me last night for some snuggles. This girl sure likes to cuddle! Most bunnies are not too big into snuggling with humans, other rabbits are another story. It’s always nice when you get to spend time with a rabbit who enjoys your company as much as you enjoy theirs!

A Lick From Cheeks

“Cheeks”

Cheeks bunny is visiting now, and she is a very affectionate lady. She’ll come right over and stick her head up to greet my hand for pets. It’s very nice to be able to pet a bunny from the couch without having to crouch down to the floor. She’s a licker too, so she reciprocates the pets. All the boys are very happy to see her, but she’s not terribly interested in them. They’re definitely more curious about her.
