“General”

No matter what I’m doing or how stressed I might be it’s always soothing to pet a bunny. Unless that bunny doesn’t really want you to pet them and you starting following them around, waiting to see if they pick a “spot” they feel comfortable being petted in, or are just trying to get away from you. Some buns are more obliging than others. The bigger buns like Archie and Piper are usually my first stop for pets and they always seem to get more out of it that I do. The smaller buns like General and Butterscotch always make you work it. I can’t count how many times I’ve contorted myself somewhere, just to get in a few pets with a fussy bun. Lucky for you buns, I’m flexible!

Hopping Like a Young Bun Again

“Archibald”

General has been hopping around so much more lately. She was even out and about to greet me this morning! I think her new meds are really helping her. She galloped around last night and Hershey got all excited. He loves to see a lady on the move! He and his brother are always a little better behaved when there’s girls in the house. Archie is so happy to see me, pretty much any time of the day. She’s not always getting fed, but I guess the chance of food is enough to keep up the suspense for her. Big bunnies beg the best!

“General”

All rabbits have their quirks and different personalities. Some like one person better than another, for seemingly no reason. General has been letting my mom pet her almost every day for the past week, but not me. I’m the one who feeds her, cleans up after her, but no love for me. I don’t mind though as I’ve got lots of other bunnies to cuddle with. Her sister, Archie is always up for a pet, no matter who’s offering it. My Charlie is very fussy and you have to pass a sniff test before he will let you pet him. Hershey and Butterscotch only go for petting when they are “in the mood,” which usually means “just ate and too full to run away,” Piper loves pets, but only from people she knows. She just melts into a puddle of vanilla ice cream.

General Is On the Move!

“Archibald”

Yesterday Hershey was “following” Gen around as she hoped past his pen. He was just so thrilled to be near her, albeit through two fences and several feet. He’s a real ladies man. General has been running around more than I’ve seen her since she arrived here. She must finally be comfortable enough, or she’s getting bored with the couch. I guess couches aren’t all that entertaining on their own. She came over to say hello to Archie yesterday too. I was petting Archie at the time so she was a little distracted. Gen doesn’t really like petting, at least from me, but Archie’s always up for it!

Grooming Time (Again)

“Piper”

Seems like all the bunnies in the house are shedding—again! I groomed Piper and Archie last night so now they both look like less scruffy ladies. They’re both big girls so that was a LOT of fur flying about. Archie is so much better about it than my Piper. Archie just lets me groom her butt, right there on the floor, but Piper I have to pick up in a litter box and put her on a counter top. She fusses the whole time. It’s not like I WANT to be doing this, girl! I think Gen might be the only one in the house right now who is not really shedding. She just gets head pets from me, so she probably likes me more than any of the other rabbits in the house right now!

“General”

Both General and Archibald are mature buns, meaning that they are too grown up for “kid stuff”. General likes her privacy and doesn’t appreciate young whippersnappers trying to invade her turf (i.e. Hershey staring at her through the fence). Archie knows what she wants, and when she wants it. Like food every time she sees you. And you had better not take your sweet time getting it to her either. She doesn’t have time to wait around all day for you to finally get the bowl down on the floor. She’s an important bun, with lots of important things to do, like sleeping, napping and generally lounging about.

“Archibald”

The Kronenbun house has been a little crazy these past few days, but these two lovely ladies don’t seem to mind one bit. My boys are happy as long as they can see them. Butterscotch camped out at his fence trying to spot the ever elusive General when she comes out from her favorite spot behind the couch. Archibald is also plopped at the fence most of the day, that is when she’s not chowing down on food. The big buns love to eat! Archie is definitely the outgoing and friendly sister, while Gen is more quiet and thoughtful. It’s a nice break to from a bun who is nudging your ankles for pets, to one who couldn’t care less that you’re in her pen. Buns can be so different.

Enjoying the Girls

“General”

General already picked her favorite spot to sleep. It’s the oh-so-popular next-to-the-couch spot. She’s not as voracious an eater as her sister, but she likes her herbs and of course, raisins. My mom even got to pet her today, so I think she’s slowly acclimating to her surroundings here.

Her sister Archibald is very friendly, and willing to eat just about anything I put down for her. She’s shedding a bit and she let me groom her right away. And we’ve only just met! I heard a little noise when I was sitting in the pen with her and realized that she was making it. The big girl is a little snorer!

“Archibald”

Archibald and General are visiting us now. Don’t be fooled by their names, they are both girls, they’re just super trendy so they have boy names. Archibald is almost as big as my Piper but is a beautiful red color. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bun her color in person. General is an adorable honey-colored girl. They’re both adjusting very well, chowing down on some pellets right after they arrived. My boys are, of course, ecstatic to have a pair of girls visiting. Hershey was already up on his hind legs trying to catch a glimpse of them. Calm down boy, you don’t want to scare the ladies off!
