Sure, You Can Pet Me

“Sadie”

I had some nice couch snuggles with Sadie last night. She just jumped up and plopped herself down right next to me, looked over at met, and put her head down. That means “You better start petting me now, human.” I’m always happy to oblige a bunny wanting pets, especially since not all of them do. Most people don’t realize it, but not all rabbits are cuddly little furballs who like to held and snuggled with. I’m lucky to pet most of the ones I’ve encountered on the floor, and some don’t even like that. They all have such different personalities, so I always present my hand and ask for permission to pet before jumping in, and possibly getting my hand bitten or scratched.

“Sadie”

Like many rabbits, Sadie loves bunstruction. There’s a medium sized basket in her pen for her to chew on. Last night she decided to drag the basket from one end of the pen and behind the couch. She made a bit of a raucous doing this, but I didn’t mind. I warned her that she wasn’t going to be able to make the turnĀ  around the other end of the couch when I though she was at the edge. I went over to move the basket for her and realized that she was already past that point!

Combustible Buns

Sadie definitely isn’t as wild a bun as she was in her younger days, but still has a lot of spirit for such a little package. I’ve found that smaller rabbits tend to be much more riled up than larger ones. Perhaps all that energy compressed into a smaller frame makes them more combustible! Younger rabbits are all also usually a little crazier, which is no surprise. That being said, I do know plenty of older buns who can still cause a raucous!

Just a Little Bit of Stasis

“Butterscotch”

Sadie was doing bunny runs around her pen last night. She was so cute, zipping along like that. Just before bedtime, our Butterscotch had a mild bout of stasis. He didn’t stop eating completely, but refused enough for us to know that something was up. He hasn’t had it since the end of January, so this was pretty good for him, off of the Reglan. We’ve been giving him bowls of hay constantly, so hopefully that has been helping. Sadie was very amused by all of this commotion last night, and kept a watchful eye on us from the arm of the couch.

“Sadie”

Sadie is enjoying my couch as much as any rabbit can. She loves to dig, so I put an old quilt down that she can dig at to her heart’s content. I don’t think she really sleeps up there, but she does go up for scouting. As a small rabbit, a boost is needed to see over fences and cardboard, and she’s smart enough to know that. If I’m sitting on the couch, she’ll come over and nudge me for some pets. If I’m not responding fast enough, she’ll start to nibble on my clothes. Not enough to make a hole, but enough to get my attention. “This is Sadie-Time, human!”

“Cameron”

Sadie bunny is visiting us now and my foster Cameron is excited to meet another rabbit, especially since it’s a girl. She’s just about his size, but has WAY more energy. She was doing runs on the couch last night, but of course stopped right when I started to take some video. Somehow they always know when you pull out your phone or a camera. My cousins’ dog used to do that too, but I think he was posing for still photos. Whenever I want to take stills, the rabbits always want to move, so I guess being sneaky and surreptitious is the best way for rabbit photography!

Nudging Muscles

“Sadie”

Sadie is so cute when she’s sleeping. It’s easy to forget how crazy and high energy she can get while she’s all flopped over under the coffee table napping. I guess that’s her recharge-mode so she can be up to her wild antics later in the day. Being small helps, less energy required to propel her around, but she’s still got powerful little muscles. Rabbits tend to use their mouth as a hand, and in some cases they use that head to nudge people or objects out of their way. If you think bunnies are fragile little things, you’ve never been knocked over by one nudging your butt out of their way!

Too Cute for Trouble

“Nicki”

Little Nicki has gone back home, so Sadie has the living room all to herself. I’ll miss my little couch buddy, but Sadie is also a couch snuggler. She lay next to me last night and I pet her for around 20 minutes straight. That’s a pretty long time for her to be sitting still! I think Sadie will miss having Nicki around for entertainment, but at least she still has my boys to watch. They LOVE admiring Sadie!

“Nicki”

Nicki is such a little snuggler. He loves hopping up into the couch with me and licking my hand, arm or anything else he can get his little tongue on. In fact, he seems somewhat more like a dog than a rabbit! He is definitely a lap bunny! Sadie doesn’t mind the occasional snuggle, but is much more independent. Last night I gave her a straw hat and it was decimated by this morning. “I made this mess, just for you! “

Hiding IN the Couch

Sadie bunny is a flinger. She loves to toss around the stacking cups, baskets, pellet bowl, litter box, anything will do! This morning after I gave the bunnies pellets and fresh water, I came back to notice that the sheet I put on top of the couch to catch all the bunny fur was moving. Somehow Nicki had gotten under it. He likely would have just chewed a hole to get out but I moved the sheet aside so he could get out. Nicki the little explorer!
