“Leonidas”

Leonidas is heading home today. He didn’t always seem thrilled to have me in his pen, but he did come up on the couch with me last night. He sniffed around and even put his paws on my leg. I did try to pet him, but he ducked out of the way. “I’m in explorer mode!” I’m used to bunnies trying to do their own thing, so it doesn’t bother me.

Peekin’ at Leonidas

“Leonidas”

Leonidas has been mostly keeping to himself, except at meal time. That’s to be expected though. Every bun is my friend when I’m going to feed them. “I love you! Now drop the food already!” Leonidas did get a glimpse of my Butterscotch when I was adjusting the cardboard. Butterscotch tends to hang out next to the visitors pens, guarding them as it were. I don’t let them see each other that much if the visitor is a boy, since that tends to rile Hershey up. Butterscotch is allowed a few peeks when Hershey isn’t looking though!

Let a Black Bunny Cross Your Path

“Leonidas”

It’s Friday the 13th, and I don’t have a black cat around, but I do have a black bunny! Leonidas is here for the weekend and he’s already made himself quite at home. He was a little shy at first and stayed mostly behind the couch, but once I left the room he came out and hopped all over, exploring. When I gave him his bedtime snack, he growled at me a little. I guess I wasn’t fast enough. I’m certainly used to pushy bunnies in this house, so a little fussing doesn’t faze me.

“Piper”

Fluffy Leonidas is heading home today. He never once came up on the couch with me, but apparently did hop up there at night. Pillows were on the floor every morning, so I know he was having a good time up there, even if I didn’t see it. He spent a long time last night “chatting” with my boys. I’m not sure what they made of him, since he looks a little like a Scottie dog, but I guess they were all friendly. Come back soon Leonidas!

My big girl Piper doesn’t groom my Charlie often, but when she does, she’s pretty aggressive about it. She’ll lick his ears, eyes, and back, but isn’t too gentle about it. Since grooming is like kissing for rabbits, she definitely kisses with teeth. Fortunately, Charlie doesn’t seem to mind, as long as he gets some love from his lady.

“Leonidas”

Last night I was sitting in Leonidas’ pen and heard a strange noise. I looked over the table and saw that he was playing with a ruler! I always keep a ruler in with visitor toys, but no one ever seems to play with it. Some might chew on it, but no one has ever tossed it around, so that was a sound I was totally unprepared for. Glad you like it, boy! Later he hopped under the table and put his head towards me. I put my hand down to pet him, and he snuggled in and started to purr. This was the first time I’d gotten him to purr, and he’s sure got a little motor inside of him! He purred for a while until I had to get up when my boys in the dining room pulled down a bag of hay. Sneaky, sneaky boys!

 

That Boy Doesn’t Bother Us

"Butterscotch & Hershey"

“Butterscotch & Hershey”

Leonidas hasn’t spent too much time talking with my boys, but they don’t mind him being here. This is probably the best behaved they’ve been with a boy here in a long time. They’re usually better behaved for girls, but get a little territorial when it’s another male. I guess little Leo is just such a nice guy that they don’t mind him. I’m sure Hershey will have to re-scent Leonidas’s favorite corner behind the couch once he leaves though. Hershey can use the exercise, so have at it boys!

“Leonidas”

Leonidas is settling in a bit more. He came over to the fence to say hello to my Butterscotch and didn’t run away. He’s got a great appetite, which is always a good sign. When I gave him his “bedtime snack” he grabbed it right out of my hand. Just don’t take off any fingers with it! During the day he mostly sleeps behind the couch, which is on the South wall so it is probably the warmest place in the house. Smart bunnies all think alike! My boys like sleeping on that wall as well.

“Leonidas”

Leonidas arrived last night for a long weekend with us. This is his second visit, but he’s still exploring everything. He was still getting comfortable last night, so I didn’t let my boy see him just yet. His favorite spot to sleep is in the¬†shelf under the end table, like many rabbits. My own boys are always sleeping in their own, or that one when we don’t have any visitors. Guess it must smell like lots of bunnies under there!

“Leonidas”

“Bella”

Leonidas and Hershey have done just about everything that they can to get a better peek at one another. When I moved some cardboard to get some light, there were just two fences between them. They snuck their noses through and had a good sniff. Then Hershey has to let out a few grunts. It’s like he’s got a little motor in him. On other places where the cardboard isn’t as high they’ve stood up and stuck their paws through, trying to swat at each other. I put a stop to that, but they didn’t really make any progress. I’m sure Hershey will miss him when he goes home.

Upstairs, my Bella was doing her rounds again last night. The carrier was out of its spot under the mini fridge, so of course Bella had to investigate. And then my humidifier was drying out in the bathroom and she went to in there to check that out. Charlie always sits outside the bathroom door when she’s in there. He’s kinda of like an opposite lookout, ready to tattle on her to anyone who comes by. Later Bella came flying from the far side of the bed as if she’d seen a ghost. My funny girl, always entertaining!

Up Here, Boy!

“Leonidas”

Yesterday I patted the couch and Leo jumped up next to me. He let me pet him for a little bit before jumping back down. I think I’ve only gotten dogs to do that before. He’s just as friendly as a dog, except when I go to pick things up off the floor. This happens with rabbits sometimes. They see the floor as their domain, and when I start messing around with that, they’re not happy. My own Bella is guilty of a few grunts if I get too close to her when using the dust pan.
