“Butterscotch & Hershey”

I always like to figure out what my rabbits genes are, so I did little research last night on my new foster-bun Cameron to see if I could figure him out. Turns out he’s a black Siamese Sable Dwarf. Sables are interesting because their coat can change colors as they shed and new fur grows in. They also have ruby tinted eyes, which I noticed in Cameron weeks ago. He’s like Rudolph, but with ruby eyes instead of his rose! Whatever the genes, Cameron sure is one handsome rabbit. He’s currently up for adoption through the Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group: http://www.longislandrabbitrescue.org/adoptables.htm

I finished decorating for Christmas this weekend, and now the tree is fully trimmed. Hershey and Butterscotch were watching me from below. The tree looks different from their perspective, but just as bright and shiny. Hershey probably just wanted to bite it and see if there was any food in it.

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

My Hershey had his annual vet appointment today and he was very good. He only goes once a year, unlike his brothers, so it’s probably a more scary experience. He’s in good health, aside from being overweight. He’s active though, so he doesn’t let it slow him down. Now we just need to lose a few more ounces, my Not-So-Mini Rex!

I came in the garage door last night, and Bella was not happy about it. She started thumping and boy are her thumps loud! They sounded like little explosions. I’m glad no one was underneath her as they might have thought it was fireworks.

Eating Bunnies = Happy Humans

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

So far my Butterscotch has been stasis free for the last few weeks. He’s been on 0.5ml of Reglan every night at bedtime and we cut out his greens. Since I noticed that he tended to get stasis in the morning, a couple of hours after eating greens, I don’t think greens first thing in the morning were a good idea for him. I do plan on introducing greens back in the evening for him, but he’s never been a big greens eater to begin with. As long as all the buns come running and chow down at mealtime, I’m happy.

Bunny: Disguised as a Foot

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

Stella’s nighttime routine has become:
1: Find my feet
2: Snuggle with those feet
3: Get my feet to pet her
4: Lick my feet
I’m beginning to wonder if she thinks my feet are rabbits. My boys certainly know the difference. I know as Hershey and Butterscotch are watching us, they’re saying: “I’ll snuggle with you!”

“Stella”

Yesterday my Hershey was watching Stella take a bath. She didn’t seem to mind his peeping though. Later she came over to me for snuggles and lay down on my foot while I pet her with the other. It takes a little maneuvering and crossed legs, but I manage to make it work for her. Then I got to feel her purring on the foot under her. That was a very weird but cool sensation!

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

Whenever I pet Stella, she lays down on my foot, effectively trapping me in place. “No leaving until I say so! Keep petting, human slave!” Fortunately for her, I’m happy to oblige, at least until my foot falls asleep. My Hershey and Butterscotch spent a lot of time in the evening yesterday laying just opposite Stella’s pen, looking at her through the window. I think she’d had enough at one point because she went behind the couch and flopped. I guess somebunny likes to have some privacy at nap time.

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!

“Piper”

I recently bought some baby stacking cups as recommended by fellow bunny parents. So far, they’re a pretty big hit with my furry little children. Upstairs, Piper knocks the stacks down several times a day. Charlie only seems to like to knock off the top cup, but he’s so dainty and not as much a destructa-bunny as Piper.

Downstairs, Butterscotch checked out the cups a little but isn’t too interested. Hershey on the other hand loves them. Yesterday I found the cups scattered across the room along with little bits of plastic that he chewed off the edges. The floor looked like someone knocked over a tube of rainbow sprinkles. I’m fairly certain he isn’t eating the plastic, given the quantity still on the floor, his predilection for gnawing on everything, and his iron stomach.  Now the cups don’t exactly stack right, but Hershey doesn’t care. He showed those cups who’s boss!

Hoppy Birthday Butterscotch!

“Cheeks”

Today is my Butterscotch’s 6th birthday. We celebrated last night with an ice cream cake for the humans and some treats for the bunnies. Butterscotch was very wary of me when I tried to give him the treats though. I don’t think he was expecting a party so he started to run away from me. Once I gave him a banana chip I think he finally got the message.

Cheeks was watching this whole scene unfold and while she initially parked herself at the fence, she eventually got bored with my human antics, as bunnies often do, and hopped in the litter box. Parker was still asleep behind the couch. He doesn’t really wake up from his nap until 6pm.

There weren’t too many fireworks going on in our neighborhood, probably because they had all weekend to spread them out, so the bunnies were all fine. Thank you air conditioners and white noise machines!

She Wobbles But She Doesn’t Fall Down

“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!
