Bunny Buddies

It’s hard to imagine that there was a time when these two were wary of one another. In the early days, Phineas was a bit territorial… but they’re pretty inseparable.

An Emergency Visit for Phineas

Tonight, he just never seemed to catch his breath. Liz picked him up to try to see if maybe he injured his feet (he didn’t). And while our bunnies are fairly friendly, they never like being picked up. Liz scooped up Phineas way too easily.

We are fast becoming a house just filled with rabbit-related stuff (and actual rabbits too). At the rate we’re accruing rabbit-related art prints and such, I’m wondering what’s going to happen when we finally get around to putting artwork up on the walls…

The Bunny Rabbits Get a New Start

On Saturday, in addition to picking up the hardware for our new security door… we also picked up a roll of new carpet. Because Phineas has been in his area for so long now, we decided it would be best to relocate both bunnies to a completely new space – totally neutral and new to both.

Quincy’s Bad Days

While he’s had a predictable pattern of good days, bad days, and then good days again… this has been the longest stretch of consecutive bad days. So far, we haven’t seen very much in terms of improvement, but Liz and I are still holding out hope that he rallies a bit.

Trouble with the Curve

quincyEC

Quincy has been having some bad days, lately. The worst happened this past Saturday and Sunday, where he wasn’t really moving around that much, having problems with his left leg. On Saturday, it was the worst. I ended up having to pick him up out of the litterbox, because he was unable to right himself. And then I had to…
