Look at those gams. Just look at them.
Tonight, Hugo was in rare form… and was digging around a lot in the litter box.
Liz and I went together with the bunnies to Ness Exotics. Both were there to get a vaccination shot for a particularly scary disease, that has officially cropped up in Illinois: Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease.
Hugo is a pretty chill rabbit, but it’s always funny to remember just how sizable he is (especially compared to Daisy). I feel like those ears could pick up stealth bomber activity, over the Eastern seaboard.
Spotted both bunnies, stretched out and relaxed. Liz and I were both remarking: “Check out those gams!”
Closer to 7:30 PM, Hugo deftly navigating the draped blanket and the top of a cardboard tunnel.
Hanging out with the bunnies tonight, I caught Hugo getting a little aggressive with the tunnel. I’m not sure if he was just bored (probably), but he really went at this thing… more than I’ve seen him in a while.
Caught this moment where Hugo hopped on top of the hut, and was content to just sit there while getting pets.
It’s been a while since Daisy and Hugo had their nails trimmed. They were overdue, to say the least. And so this means… burrito time!
Tonight, Hugo was content to just hang out while Daisy more or less fell asleep on top of his head.
We have this plastic tunnel thing that we bring out, from time to time. It’s older, and not something Hugo has really seen before.
Tonight, Liz threw few pellets inside to encourage Hugo to explore. Because Hugo, for all his size and weight, is still something of a scaredy cat.
Daisy has had this kind of fun before, but the “Hay Sampler” is a new experience for Hugo. We opened up this big box, and watched to see what the bunnies would do.
For no good reason, here’s a short video of Daisy and Hugo, chewing on a bit of cardboard.
I tried to be very quiet and slow, for fear of startling her. I got a few quick photos, and then decided to take some video of her just… well, sitting there. And then this happened:
This one is more of a replacement for the constant stream of cardboard structures we’ve made for them. We didn’t want to use another two-story structure, for fear of Daisy’s failing eyesight. Better to keep things low to the ground.
