“Sal”

Whenever I walk past  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!

“Sal & Minnie”

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 find  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!”

Bunny Snuggles, Free of Charge!

“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!”

“Minnie & Sal”

Upon entering his pen last night, Sal did a big bunny flop next to me, and took a nap. As soon as I got my camera out, Minnie ran over to make sure I wasn’t going to do anything to her man. She is very protective of him, and maybe a little possessive too. He’s certainly a handsome and sweet boy, so I can understand why. She’s adorable herself, but a little firecracker!

We’re having very warm temperatures here right now, and I think the rabbits notice. My Piper has been getting into mischief for the past couple of days. Recently she shredded the newspaper in the litter box she rarely uses and then decided to pull all of the towels out from the under bed. My little (10lber) girl must have spring fever!

Douglas bunny is heading home tonight, so his loud lop runs won’t be heard in the evening. I’m not sure if Sal and Minnie do runs, but I imagine they have a lot more fun “mountain climbing” on the couch.

How Soft is Your Napping Spot?

“Douglas”

Sal and Minnie don’t even really need a pen to run around in, the couch is enough of a playground. Most of the day, the two can be found atop it, either laying on the back or sitting on the seat. Sal loves sleeping up there and sometimes Minnie joins him if she’s not too busy playing lookout. I’ll give them this, it is pretty soft and comfy up there. Some rabbits just know where the best napping spots are. Douglas, on the other hand is perfectly content to sleep on the hard coffee table. There’s a couch in his pen too, but he only hops up there when I’m sitting on it for petting. He’s got a bit more “padding” being a fluffy lop, so I suppose he doesn’t mind how hard his sleeping surface is.

Apparently I’m a just one big toy for Sal and Minnie. They climb all over me when I’m sitting on the couch. Sal likes to have some snuggles, but Minnie just sits there and glares at me. Douglas wants me to pet him always, even if it’s with my foot. I have to get in a  weird position to do it, and when I stop, he fusses. That’s my job though, bunny-slave!

Couches and Coffee Tables

“Douglas”

Sal and Minnie love their couch time. Both buns are quite content to spend the day lounging up on top of it. In the evening I sat with Sal and he snuggled in for  pets. Once Minnie realized what was happening, she jumped up and gave him a nudge. I do not think she was happy about Sal giving another girl attention, even if I’m just a human! I tried to give her a head pat, but she was not having any of that.

Douglas loves lounging on the coffee table. He frequently digs a little at the top, before settling in for a nap, just like a dog scratching at his bed before snugging in. It’s not as soft as a bed, so i don’t know that scratching will make much of a difference, but Douglas has a mind of his own!
