“Stella”

I got to witness Stella stretching out her big toes last night. Long toes for a long bunny! Then she yawned a big bunny yawn. Some of mine yawn by dropping their lower jaw, and others do so by lifting up their heads. Stella is one of those buns who lift up their head and looked like a lion roaring. Roar on, big girl!

Bunny: Disguised as a Foot

“Hershey & Butterscotch”

Stella’s nighttime routine has become:
1: Find my feet
2: Snuggle with those feet
3: Get my feet to pet her
4: Lick my feet
I’m beginning to wonder if she thinks my feet are rabbits. My boys certainly know the difference. I know as Hershey and Butterscotch are watching us, they’re saying: “I’ll snuggle with you!”

“Stella”

Yesterday my Hershey was watching Stella take a bath. She didn’t seem to mind his peeping though. Later she came over to me for snuggles and lay down on my foot while I pet her with the other. It takes a little maneuvering and crossed legs, but I manage to make it work for her. Then I got to feel her purring on the foot under her. That was a very weird but cool sensation!

“Shore’s LIRRG Rescue Party”

Yesterday my mom and I helped catch a dumped domestic rabbit for the Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group that we named Shore. Fortunately we were successful and Shore is now in a foster home. This rescue would never have been possible without banana, and for that we have Stella to thank. I don’t usually keep bananas in the house as the humans don’t like them and the rabbits wouldn’t be able to eat one up before it went bad. Stella brought bananas with her when she arrived though, so I had one to bring to the catch. Shore thanks you Stella, and this little bunny really enjoyed that banana!

“Stella”

Last night, Stella hopped up onto the couch with me, She didn’t stick around for snuggles, this was time for business. She sniffed all of the cushions and hopped all over, jumping over me several times in the process. I did get a few pets in while she was busy, but she didn’t feel like snuggling. Then, once she was done, she just hopped back down to the floor and went in the litter box. Maybe a snuggle next time!

“Stella”

Stella bunny is visiting us again, and this is one big girl with a big personality! She’s napping right now, but will surely be out in force tonight, running all over, and snuggling with my feet. Finola is very chill and doesn’t seem to mind having a female roommate. They’re both big white girls and are super sweeties. The big white rabbits always are!

Who’s Your Snuggle Buddy?

“Benita”

When Benita was sleeping in the evening yesterday, I saw her twitching her mouth and kicking out of her feet. I wonder what she was dreaming about. Looks interesting! Uriel still has been making a point of laying down at the fence, waiting for Benita. She’s a little more interested in food than snuggling with him though. Stella loves both food and snuggles, but her preferred snuggling partner is my foot. Even if it means I can’t really reach her with my hand, she wants to flop down against my foot. My foot doesn’t mind having a soft snuggle-buddy though!

“Stella”

Lately when I try to pet Stella, she’d rather snuggle with my feet. I love foot snuggling with a big white bunny! I wish my Piper would do that, but she’d rather snuggle with Charlie. I get it, I’d rather snuggle with a bunny too! Uriel frequently looks like he’d like to snuggle with Benita, but usually has to settle for the fence instead. She only seems interested in him when I go over to pet him.

It’s Chow Time!

“Uriel”

After a few days of getting comfortable, Uriel now eats with as much vigor as the girls on either side of him. At every mealtime, all three buns run to the end of their pens, waiting for me. I don’t know who figures it out first, probably Benita, but then the others take a cue and start begging. I usually feed the boys in the dining room first so Stella might have the best view, but some rabbits also seem to be able to tell time. I’m sure if Benita could tell time, she’d know when it was feeding time!

“Stella”

Benita and Uriel are not bonded, but they have their own special “through-the-fence” relationship. I know of several rabbits who were unable to be safely bonded full-time, but still enjoy each other’s company. My two boys, Hershey and Butterscotch have each other, but also love seeing the other rabbits in the living room. Right now Hershey has his sights on Stella. He’s about a third of her size, but I’m sure he thinks that he could be the boss of her. I can imagine him trying to chase and mount her, and him clinging on as she runs away, almost like a human riding a horse! Whoa there, Hershey, maybe take a step back from the fence!
