Tonight, I happened across this moment where Daisy was lying next to Phineas… but then Phineas decided he needed more greens. So what did he do? Climbed right over Daisy, of course!
Liz took Phineas in for another checkup today, and we got some really sad news. Phineas is not doing well, and it seems like he’s not likely to recover back to full health.
Phineas has… not been doing well, lately. He’s had problems going to the bathroom, has been fighting all his medication, and most worrisome of all… he’s really lost his appetite. Which is a very concerning and dangerous sign.
Truth be told, Phineas hasn’t been doing so well lately. He’s had some digestive problems that we haven’t been able to diagnose, and even after an emergency vet visit this week… he’s not back to his normal self.
I first came across these two way back in 2005 (a year before YouTube was a thing). I’m certain every episode I saw was done in Flash (RIP).
On seeing this video, I didn’t realize/remember there were multiple stories. I recall “Cake Dance” for the viral earworm that it is… but had forgotten everything that came after.
Tonight, it seemed that Daisy got herself underneath Phineas. And then Phineas just decided to… take a nap?
Like, no grooming, no work. He just decided that it was time to sleep.
I’m sad to share that, a few months back, she started to develop a bit of a cataract over her right eye. So far, it hasn’t impeded her too much (she does run into us a bit more, from time to time). I think this stems from the surprising fact that we learned Daisy is actually a bit older than Phineas.
This guy was particularly… big? I did wonder if this could be Harold, but that’s an awful lot of weight to have put on, in a short time. But perhaps it’s been a bad pandemic year for everyone, bunnies and humans included. I know that I wasn’t making the best of food choices.
Lately, Liz has documented several times where I’ve left the gates… open, shall we say. Enough that last night, I walked into the kitchen to see this:
Was spending a little time sitting with Daisy and Phineas. After they got super cozy, I was able to set my phone on the ground to get this close-up photo.
While we were out working in the backyard, I spotted this little guy sitting nearby… bold as brass. As soon as I got my camera out, he got spooked and ran away.
Not the greatest photo in the world, but I wanted to capture this moment where Daisy was leaning hard on Phineas… and the two of them just looked like the best of buddies.
Post-work, finally getting around to installing the arches we cut out.
It’s a bit of a daunting process, us committing to installing these things. Because I feel like I did a really poor job of cutting them out. But we sucked it up and tried to align the pieces as best we could.
Came downstairs to find Phineas sleeping. On closer inspection, I realized he leaned right into a food dish and didn’t seem to care one bit.
We were in Lake View this morning, running a bunch of errands. As we were driving down Clark, Liz looked out the window and yelled “It’s a bunny store!”
