“Lily”

“Charlie”

Lily went home this morning. Even though she’ll probably be happy there, she did NOT want to get in her carrier. She was Miss Thumpy and Evasive!

We cleaned up a bit and now Hershey and Butterscotch have the whole living room to run around in. They didn’t waste any time. Hershey made several laps through the kitchen, living room and dining room and was a very happy boy!

It’s gotten quite cold here lately so I’ve told the buns to snuggle up at night. They’re lucky they’ve got fur. Our house doesn’t heat very evenly so I have to put on multiple layers to keep warm. A snuggle with a bun doesn’t hurt either!

Wherefore Art Thou Lily?

“Butterscotch, Hershey & Lily”

Lily started thumping in the afternoon yesterday. I guess I must have startled, she scares easily. Butterscotch thumped once but fortunately didn’t set off a chain reaction.

Lily and Hershey were looking at each other through the fence last night like Romeo and Juliet. It was so adorable. Later Hershey and Butters were up on the couch looking down at her. Sort of a balcony scene reversal!

I got to pet both boys in evening, which isn’t a very common occurrence. I sniffed Butters for the first time I realized. He smells different from Charlie and Bella. She smells like candy, Charlie smells like apple, and Butters smells a little spicy. I sniffed Hershey later and he smells like wood—probably because he chews on so much of it.

Everybody Loves Lily

“Lily”

“Charlie (2009)”

Lily was so relaxed yesterday. She did a bunny flop and stretched her feet out. By this morning she was running around and chewing on a cardboard box. I heard noises and went downstairs to check on her and saw Hershey just opposite her on the other side of the fence, and Butterscotch on the couch above them. Two layers of boys! They both seem to really like her, and best of all, Hershey isn’t terrorizing Butters when he tries to get close to her either. Maybe he learned some manners? Nah…

The boys still want to go under the Christmas tree. We’ll have to let them under there, supervised, before it comes down in a few days. All bunnies seem to love the Christmas tree. When we brought down Charlie for his first Christmas, he spent the whole evening under the tree. He was sniffing, exploring—and eventually—sleeping underneath the tree. Perhaps it reminds them of the forest of their wild ancestors.

“Hershey & Lily”

Hershey came over and lay down next to Lily a lot yesterday. He was a very good boy! Lily didn’t seem to mind the boys being there, but earlier in the day she slept far back in the pen for a little privacy. We cleaned up the dining room today and the boys didn’t seem to mind being in the living room by Lily for a little while. They came back in when we were done to explore, and chin everything, but it didn’t take long for them to go right back to where they could see Lily.

Hoppy New Year!

“Lily”

“Fulton”

“Butterscotch & Hershey”

We had some fireworks in the neighborhood around midnight last night, but the rabbits didn’t seem to mind too much. It wasn’t anywhere as bad as on the Fourth of July, but there was one really loud one. My brother thought it sounded like an M-80. Bunnies say, “it’s too cold out there for fireworks, come inside for a snuggle!”

My dad gave Fulton a cookie last night and he jumped up on the couch with him too. He’s such a sweet boy. He really didn’t want to go home this morning. Poor little guy, didn’t want to leave his camp friends! My brother and I were playing a board game in his pen yesterday when he gave my brother a shock. He sneaked behind him and put his paws on his back. Boy did my brother shriek! Good thing he didn’t try and bite him! I rewarded Fulton with lots of petting after that.

Lily yawned like a lion last night. She’s certainly got the fluffy mane of one. After Fulton left this morning, we’ve let Butterscotch and Hershey into the other half of the living room to run around. They both went to see Lily and she didn’t seem to mind the attention. At one point, Butters lied down under the coffee table and Lily up against the fence between them. So far Hershey has been behaving too.

“Lily”

“Fulton”

“Bella & Charlie

Last night Lily was a very busy bunny. I was watching her on the webcam after I put the downstairs bunnies “to bed” and suddenly she erupted into a series of bunny runs and binkies. It was even loud enough for me to hear! She’s not too active during the day when I’ve seen her, so I guess she exercises at night. Go girl, go!

Fulton is finally spending more time on the couch. Now he jumps up whenever someone comes in to beg for his treat. He came over to say hello to Lily in the afternoon and they were both a little shy about it. Aw! Neither has a bunny friend at home so maybe they like having another member of their species to communicate with here. I always try and encourage bunny socialization.

These two buns are the fluffy versions of my Charlie and Bella. One white girl, and one spotted boy. Fulton is a lot like Charlie in personality, but Lily is nothing like my Bella. She’s a bit timid and nice, while Bella is fearless, very active and doesn’t appreciate needless bothering. Lately, Bella has been digging in the litter box / pad area every night. She’s been waking me up at 8:45 everyday. I guess she wants me to get up early. Today, actually, was the first day in a while that she did NOT dig during the night. I guess she was trying to be nice and let me sleep, so she started digger AFTER I woke up!

“Fulton”

“Lily”

Jeffrey went home last night, and was very happy to see his family. We’ll miss the little piggy, but know he’ll be happy to be home with his pet dog.

Last night my brother pet Fulton for a very long time. He purred a lot and at one point my brother got up to leave and Fulton didn’t want him to stop. Aw! So, he stayed a bit longer and Fulton was happy. My brother likes to get a bunny to lay down, but Fulton was a tough cookie. He’s stubborn, just like my Charlie.

Fluffy Lily arrived this morning. I always love seeing her again. She’s by far the fluffiest rabbit we’ve had here. I’ve only seen more fluff in angora rabbits. She’s a little skittish so she was running around a bit earlier today, but seems generally satisfied with her accommodations. Hershey came over to see her and Fulton even slunk out his little cubby and came over to the fence to say “hello” to Lily.

What Flavor of Pants Are You Wearing?

“Lily”

“Bella & Charlie”

Last night I was sitting on the couch when Lily came over and started licking my pants. At first I checked to make sure she wasn’t biting me, but then wondered why she was licking. My pants aren’t usually particularly tasty. I looked down and saw a white smear and realized what it was. I had spilled some banana puree earlier and apparently some landed on my pant cuff. Oh boy was she enjoying that!

After initially only letting Butterscotch come in the living room, I allowed both boys to run around, as long as Hershey behaved himself. He did, for the most part. The only real hiccup was when Lily did some bunny runs and scared Hershey out of the litter box which then scared Butters so bad that he thumped on and off for like 15 minutes. Eventually he calmed down and snuggled with Hershey. He’s just such a sensitive little guy!

Our Bella is continuing her crazy streak. Yesterday she sneaked into my mom’s bathroom and started ripping up the rug behind the toilet. Doesn’t she know it’s dirty back there? She tried to get in there again today but was thwarted. In the past when she’s had these days of crazy it was followed by her nesting. I’m waiting for that to happen. I just don’t know what gets into her sometimes.

“Lily”

“Butterscotch & Hershey”

Lily is back at Kamp Kronenberg while her parents vacation at the Mouse Kingdom. She’s really enjoying the boys. Hershey kept running around outside of her pen and she’d follow him along inside. It was adorable. She loves petting, and it’s like petty a fluffy doggy. She’s certainly the closest thing to a dog we’ve had in this house in years.

Hershey got a little nasty last night, chasing Butterscotch out of living room. He seems to think that when other rabbits are here, the living room is his turf and keeps herding Butters off of it. As a result he got confined to dining room, where Butters already was. I might only let Butters out to see Lily now unless Hershey’s attitude improves.

Not to be forgotten, upstairs my Bella has recently been in a tizzy. Two nights ago she barely sat down for 5 minutes before hopping onto something else. She was in all 3 bedrooms, both bathroom, and the hall closet exploring. She’s also still digging on the hay pad. She seems to start that after 9:30pm and sporadically digs until 11am the next morning, I guess she’s working the swing shift.

“Lily”

“Motley Chue”

Motley was snoring a little yesterday. Bunny snores are always cute, people not so much. We had a very long couch snuggle last night. Petting a bunny while sitting on the couch is the best kind of bunny sitting. Both of the ladies we have here now remind me of doggies. Lily is like one of those fluffy white terriers and Motley is like a floppy eared puppy. Lily is going home tonight, but I think she enjoyed meeting Motley. They’re both okay with one another and generally just ignore each other. That’s getting along well for bunnies.
