“Minnie”

Sal was perched up on top of the couch this morning. He was looking out the windows, or at least seemed to be. He knows how to be king of the castle! When I fed them this morning I had to move the pellet bowl Minnie was eating from, but she thought I was trying to touch her. “No way, human!” She pulled her head back so fast! That’s okay, Minnie, I have a rabbit just like that. Some buns love to be petted, like Sal, others would rather you just dropped their food and ran!

“Annie”

What’s cuter than a bunny on a couch? Three bunnies on the couch. They’re adorable, even though they may dig and make some holes. That’s why there’s sheets on top. My own rabbits don’t really go up on the couch much, but some rabbits love it. Sal and Minnie are practically living up there, aside from eating and using the litter box. Can’t say I blame them, curling up the couch for a nap sounds like a lovely idea!

“Sal & Minnie”

Annie bun is visiting us for a couple of days, so the living room is full of bunnies! They all hopped up on the couches in their pens to get a better look at each other. Rabbits are often very curious, and these buns are no exception. My boys are happy that some of the visitors are girls, not that it really makes much of a difference. They must smell different to them though, and they like girls better. My Piper sits at her spot at the top of the stairs and looks down at everyone from the hall. She know she’s queen of the castle, so she likes to keep an eye on all the little subjects in her kingdom.

“Sal & Minnie”

Every evening, Sal and Minnie commandeer my couch. Last night I sat down while they were eating and shortly they both joined me up there. Sal came over for petting, so we snuggled, but Minnie is not a snuggler. She parked herself about a foot away from Sal and watched us the whole time. She’s just gotta make sure I don’t hurt her man! They’re so adorable together, but you can tell she wears the pants in their relationship, as most female buns do. Rabbit colonies in the wild are naturally matriarchal, and even in domestic settings, ladies are the boss!

“Sal”

Sal & Minnie are visiting for President’s week so we’ve moved bonding back downstairs to the den while they take us residence in the living room. At first, the pair didn’t want to come out of their carrier when they arrived, but eventually they got comfortable and first Minnie, then Sal came out to explore. They move hopped all over the pen, sniffing and chinning everything. They both periscoped up to the couch that I was sitting on, but no one jumped up until after I had left. When I went to bed last, I checked on them and they were both snuggling on the couch. Adorable!

“Sal”

Whenever I walk pastĀ  the living room, and catch Minnie’s eye, she seems to be staring me down. “What you looking at, human? Don’t get any ideas about coming over here. Unless you want to feed me. Then drop the food and run!” Some rabbits are like this, very opinionated. I don’t let it bother me though. As long as they aren’t biting me or destroying furniture, I ignore their sassy attitudes. It’s kind of hard to get upset about those little balls of fluff. The cute ones know they can get away with murder!

Cameron got some living room space back and now had a nice view of Sal and Minnie. He was very excited to see them. Sal, not so much. He thumped when he saw Cameron. I don’t think Minnie cared one way or the other. Cameron even did some bunny runs. Since he doesn’t move around quite like other rabbits, his were more zigzagy than in laps. Afterwards he likes to snuggle with his stuffed dog at the edge of his pen.

Thoughts from the “Poop Fairy”

Sometimes bunnies can be messy. I often feel like I’m the “Poop Fairy” cleaning up after buns. The more bunnies, the more poops, though some are better litter box users than others. Whenever rabbits are in close proximity to each other, they frequently poop to mark their turf. That’s happening right now in my living room. Sal and Minnie are between Hershey and Butterscotch and Glenda, so they need to mark their pen as “theirs.” My foster Cameron never really seems to do this though. The only time I ever findĀ  stray poop is when they accidentally came out of the litter box. Glenda is similar, making for much easier clean up. Then you get older buns whose arthritis and limited mobility make the world their litter box. That’s how it is with my Charlie, but at least his poops are small. A good dustpan, hand-vac or carpet sweeper are invaluable tools for the “Poop Fairy!”

“Glenda”

Sal and Minnie are visiting us now. These two are such little cuddle bugs. Sal hopped right up onto the couch with me and snuggled last night. About 10 minutes into petting him, Minnie jumped up and had a look at what I was doing. She was not thrilled so jumped back down. Minnie doesn’t like anyone else touching her man.

My foster Cameron came out to the edge of his pen just before dinner and was asking to come out to get a better look at Glenda. He’s never asked to come out his pen before, I usually open it and he makes his way out eventually. I opened it up for him right away and he hopped right over to see Glenda. So glad to see him that spirited. He’s usually a very laid back bun, so I like to see him get excited about something, usually food or other bunnies.

Underground Thumps

“Minnie & Sal”

I was in the basement yesterday and heard a loud thud, followed by more thuds. The mail had been delivered in the mail slot, and always makes noise as it falls to the ground. Minnie bunny was answering the mail, by giving it a few thumps. Boy was it loud to hear from underneath though! Sometimes I hear bunny runs down there, but thumps are much louder. I imagine if a bunny on the ground, (or below ground as in my case) had heard her thumping, they certainly would have gotten the message! “Loud Noise! Possible danger!”
