“Allie & Hershey”

Allie wobbles a little sometimes, but at her recent vet visit was given the all clear for adoption through the Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group. She hops just fine and even hopped on tile floor, which not all rabbits are willing to do. She gets into her regular-sized litter box just fine, and has been spending her days hopping onto and off of the shelf under my end table. Sometimes when she periscopes on her back legs to say hello to me, she stumbles a little, but it’s nothing she can’t handle. She’s always eager for a pat on the head, or a treat!

If you’ve had any experiences with the Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group, please consider leaving them a review on their Facebook page! Allie is currently up for adoption. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting her, check out her petfinder page!

“Hershey”

Piper and Hershey are my two super-eaters. While I often worry about the eating habits of their mates, I never have to fret over these guys. I sometimes wonder what they would be like if they were bonded. I imagine a lot of fighting over who gets the last few pellets in the bowl or the last piece of lettuce. Hershey is pretty bossy and Piper is so sweet. She’s also twice his size, but Hershey tends to use his small stature to his advantage. I don’t doubt that he would sneak underneath her to get a some food. Chow down babies!

Keeping My Boys Well Fed

“Butterscotch”

“Charlie”

My little Butterscotch has been having something of a mystery illness for the past 4 weeks. He had bouts of stasis 4 times and an overall decrease in appetite. Two trips to the vet later, he’s been on Reglan twice a day to help keep his gut moving and Periactin to stimulate his appetite. He seems to be eating better now, so we’re cutting back on Periactin and will soon reduce the Reglan as well. Hopefully when we do, he’ll still be eating. His blood work and x-rays didn’t show anything, and his teeth were excellent, so aside from a few gas bubbles in his stomach, there’s no obvious reason for this illness.

We’ll be bringing my Charlie to the vet this week to get more blood work to make sure everything is going all right with him. His weight has been doing well, holding stable and he’s eating enough. It just takes several feedings during the day to do that.

Oddly enough, my boy Hershey who has always been a little overweight, actually lost a few ounces over the last couple of weeks. I would have thought he’d have gained by sneaking food meant for his mate Butterscotch, but somehow the reverse happened!

Thanks Mom!

“Hershey”

I’m back from my trip and my rabbits are somewhat happy to see me again. I don’t think Butterscotch and Hershey cared that I was gone, Piper didn’t seem to notice and Charlie was a little annoyed that I left him in the first place. My mom took great care of them though. It was so great to be able to enjoy myself knowing they were in her expert care. For mother’s day tomorrow, I’ll be taking over all the rabbit duties to give her a break. Litter boxes, laundry, and greens cleaning awaits!

Charlie may be a fussy little guy and required a lot of attention, but he’s got my mom “trained” too so she knows just how he likes everything. Some rabbits are very particular about their food for example, and will not eat if something is not right. Those are the rabbits you have to watch out for since they may be more prone to illness due to stress. My big girl Piper is the opposite and will eat just about anyway that is physically possible for her to do. I didn’t worry about her at all since she’s so easygoing. Maybe some of her mellow will rib off on my Charlie.

“Charlie & Piper”

Lately my boys downstairs, Butterscotch and Hershey, have been very picky about their greens. It’s the same stuff they usually get, but for the last week they’ve been taking much longer to eat everything. Upstairs, Charlie and Piper, are chowing down their veggies just fine, so it’s not the greens. Once my boys gobble up all the parsley, they let the rest sit for a while longer before coming back to finish. My boys can certainly be odd sometimes.

I’m going away on vacation tomorrow but the Kronenbuns will be well taken care of. This is the first time I’ve gone away since I got Piper, so I hope she’ll be okay without me (i.e. I’m going to miss her and her brothers terribly!) I’m sure Charlie will very cross with me when I return, as he usually is when I go on vacation. I’ll have to have treats ready!

Hoppy Easter from the Kronenbuns!

“Butterscotch, Hershey & Glenda”

My boys are both so happy to have Glenda here. They both spend most of the day under the coffee table where they have a good view of Glenda. She likes to lay next to the fence too. I close up the window at night to give them some privacy, and this morning Glenda was sitting at the fence, waiting. She’s pretty savvy abd learns fast!

Gettin’ Cozy with Stella

“Hershey & Stella”

Stella has been making greetings at the fence with my boys lately. She’s been here long enough now that they’re all comfortable with each other. Butterscotch likes to sleep up on a chair and look down at Stella, but Hershey likes to stick his nose through the fence, and chew at it a little, right there on the ground. Stella doesn’t seem too bothered by them. She’ll look over when one is making a commotion, but most of the time is content to sleep under the table or next to the couch, especially if I’m there to pet her.

More Snacks, Please!

“Butterscotch & Hershey”

Yesterday Stella bunny was nudging my hand and sniffing it all over looking for a treat. Sorry girl! She does this frequently, just to make sure I’m not holding out on something. I had a fudge pop last night and let her sniff it. She took a brief lick but I don’t think she liked it. “Too cold and not sweet enough! Maybe add banana!” My boys have mostly been good roommates. She noshes on her pellets throughout the day and Hershey is frequently found sitting at his gate, watching. I’m not sure if he’s more interested in Stella or the pellets, but he’s got that look on his face that I swear is a smile.

Happy Gotcha Day to the Dessert Brothers!

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

Today is my Hershey and Butterscotch’s “Gotcha Day!” Three years ago today the “Dessert Brothers” became Kronenbuns. Hershey is a slightly bitter dark chocolate sometimes, but Butterscotch is nothing but sweet. These two are always entertaining us with their antics like Hershey suddenly appearing on the wrong side of the kitchen gate, clanging it to be let “back in” and finding Butterscotch fast asleep up on a chair at breakfast time in the morning. I highly recommend adopting a bonded pair of rabbits as these two boys are utterly inseparable (and we didn’t have to do the bonding!).  I can’t imagine our lives without these two!
