Bunny Bonding in the Sun Room

Ever since Quincy joined us, Liz and I have been trying to get him and Baxter to bond. We’ve been off and on with this bonding process, and as of today the two of them are still in separate pens. Overall, the bonding sessions have been pretty good. There was one really bad fight between them, but that was maybe…

Boxes and Bunny Bonding

Day two of our new apartment. Again, we spent a lot of today unpacking boxes. I never knew we owned so much crap. It’s staggering, really, to see it all in a lump all at once. Today we concentrated on the kitchen, and got the whole area cleared out. The countertops are a bit more open, and the oven and…

Home From the Vet, and the Baxter Bunny Burrito

So we went in to the vet and got Baxter checked out yesterday. There was a routine examination, along with an x-ray, and a long period of waiting around in one of the rooms. Ultimately, the diagnosis was something like gastro-intestinal stasis. There was a possible blockage or inflammation in her secum, and we got sent home with a large…

Baxter is Sick

This morning, when I came by to give Baxter her breakfast, she stayed inside her little box. Normally, she’s waiting as I’m approaching, with her paws up on the cage (sometimes even standing on her hind legs). She’s a lover of food, and there’s no more dangerous place to be than between Baxter and her veggies. But this AM, something…

Japanese Bunny DVD

Liz and I got a nice gift from Chris and Leslie, who just got back from Japan a few days ago. It was a great looking DVD of Bunnies, but beyond that… we had no idea what to expect. We had to try a few different approaches in order to view the DVD. Due to Region restrictions, it didn’t work…

Quincy Smells Food

Our newest rabbit, Quincy, has a thing for people food. If he smells food on your hands, or if he can tell you’ve eaten something recently… he’ll come in for a quick inspection. Don’t let the cuteness fool you. This is a deadly standoff.

Everyone, Meet Professor Quincy Snugglesworth

I’m proud to officially introduce you to Professor Quincy Snugglesworth, the newest member of our household. Liz and I had different favorite names for the bunny, so we ended up compromising. Overall, we liked Mr. Darcy, but as he gradually became more comfortable… that name didn’t seem to fit as much. We both ended up liking Quincy, and felt that…

Taking the Bunnies for a Car Ride

Last night, after catching up with Justin for some post-work drinks and sushi, Liz swing by to pick us both up. It turns out, we had a few other passengers in the car as well. Liz has been reading up on the whole “bonding” process for rabbits for some time, and recently came across a mention of a “shared stress…

Just Hanging Out

Woke up yesterday AM, and as I was walking to kitchen… noticed something sitting on the couch. I was groggy, and at first wasn’t 100% sure what I was looking at. But it slowly dawned on me that the rabbit we brought home had somehow ecaped his pen. And was just… you know. Hanging out on the couch. Chillaxing. He’s…

Two Rabbits Meeting on Neutral Ground

These photos are from a second meeting between Baxter and Marciano (who we have yet to rename). We’ve got them on top of our bed, hopping around a few layers of blankets. We’re hoping that having the bunnies meet on neutral ground will make the transition smoother, and allow the two to pair bond a little easier. The timing of…

A New Bunny in the Apartment

After our last visit to Red Door Animal Shelter, Liz and I talked about which suitor would be best for Baxter. Though extremely tiny and cute, we decided not to go with Bun Bun. Instead, we felt that Marciano would make the better choice. While I usually like to keep an animal’s given name, Liz and I were planning on…

Bunny Butt

From time to time, Liz will leave the entire bag of hay open (and on the ground) for Baxter. This basically turns into a huge feeding trough, and she ends up walking into the bag and just chomping away. While it’s a messy thing, what’s hysterical is that oftentimes you’ll see nothing but a big bunny butt sticking out of…
