“Leonidas”

Last night Misty hopped up onto the couch, just after I had left her pen. I don’t think she was looking for a cuddle, but rather a higher vantage point. That way she can see Leonidas better, peer over at Hershey and Butterscotch, catch Cameron in the hall, and maybe catch a glimpse of Piper and Charlie upstairs. Misty and Leo are going home today, but there’s still plenty of bunnies in the house to keep me busy!

Know Your Place, Human!

Misty hasn’t really wanted much to do with me during her visit. She would much rather sit at the fence, next to Leonidas, admiring him. All Leonidas cares about is his food. That’s generally the impression I get from most rabbits. They want their food, and company of other rabbits. Humans are just the tools that get them those things. Once you get used to that, you don’t mind getting ignored by a fluffy little bunny-butt!

Cardboard on Windows and Plastic on Doors

When I opened up the cardboard “window” between their pens today, Butterscotch came over to look. Then Misty ran towards her fence, and he retreated into his pen. Misty is such a little flirt. Leonidas was watching this from his spot at the fences between their pens. He may be somewhat blind, but he knows what’s going on!

Today I repaired, repainted, and then protected the bottom of my bedroom door. For months now, both Charlie and Piper have decided it is a chew toy, even when the door is open with plenty of room. I had tried fabric first, but Charlie was able to grab ahold and open the door all by himself when it was closed! Then I tried thin plastic and thin fabric, but Piper just took big bites out of those. Now I have thick plastic that is for protecting corners. I also put it on some wallpapered wall corners that they have been chewing on. Hopefully this stuff will be more bunny-proof!

Gimme Greens, I’m Irish!

My foster bunny Cameron wishes everyone a Hoppy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m about 1/4 Irish, so while he’s in this house, that makes him Irish too!

Misty hadn’t really been eating her greens much, which happens sometimes. I always try and give buns what they’ll like the most to cut down on the waste, so I tried a few different things, and now she is finishing her greens just like her boy Leo. Now she just has to catch up to him on pellets, but the way he speed eats, I don’t think that’s going to happen!

Bunnies Up There, Bunnies Down Here

“Cameron”

Now that Misty and Leonidas have taken up residence in the living room, Cameron’s playpen has moved to the hall on the other side of his pen. I took down some room dividers and now he can see all the way upstairs, and Charlie and Piper up there can see him. Charlie let out a thump tonight to let usĀ  know that he is not happy that Cameron is getting all this new space an attention. Cameron just likes to sit there and look up at them. I wonder if he might be happier with a friend. Maybe if he continues to improve we can find him a nice forever home somewhere with a bunny-wife.

Leonidas might not be able to see, but that doesn’t slow him down at meal time. He polished off all his food today whereas Misty picks out her favorites and leaves the rest for me to clean up. They do both love their hay. They use American Pet Diner, which I don’t believe I’ve tried yet, but will be after seeing how soft and green it is. We sometimes have trouble finding enough quality hay for 4+ bunnies, so good hay is always a happy find.

“Leonidas”

Misty and Leonidas are visiting us now. They’re not quite bonded, but are still dating. Misty had visited a few years ago when she was with her former mama and now she is Leo’s girlfriend. Leonidas is blind and he treated his litter box like home-base tonight. He’d hop out to explore, but kept going back to it. Misty was usually nearby on her side of the fence, sometimes in her litter box. They both love munching on their hay, which is always good for bunny guts!

Explorer Mode Activated!

“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.

Kissing With Teeth

“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.
