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.
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.
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.
I went about vacuuming the area, and even got the vacuum right up to the entrance here. Phineas? Didn’t move an inch. Not at all. He was so still, for a moment there I thought we had maybe lost him.
It’s a challenge, updating this blog when I really don’t leave the house all that much. I used to take more photos when I was walking to/from the train, and well… we really don’t do that anymore.
With all the work that’s happened on the first floor recently, there was no good space for them. But they’re back now, and staying with us in the interim… until everyone has to locate again (once the final floors are installed).
Tonight, we worked on getting the bunnies moved from their current area… over to the newly demo-ed living room. We’ll be pulling up the floor in the main hall area, and so it’s another game of shuffle while we move things (and bunnies) around.
I didn’t see the full sequence of events, but here’s how I imagine it went down: Daisy was sitting, content in the Hop ‘n Flop. And then when Phineas came near, she kind of army-crawled her way closer to him.
Look at that little mug.
Liz captured this first-ever moment: Phineas flopped while up on the top level of the bunny cottage!
The bunnies were overdue to get their nails trimmed. Usually Liz does the holding and the trimming, while I help distract the bunnies and get their feet/nails clear. This time though, I ended up holding the bunnies, giving Liz a bit more freedom to work.
Lately, the videos I do are pretty quick – a few seconds here and there, maybe 30 seconds at the most. So it felt like a fun opportunity to take a longer video, and just watch Phineas and Daisy do their thing.
It’s always so nice to see these two getting along so well. Daisy has chilled out a lot, over the years. And while at times there were questions of who the top bunny was, things seem to have settled into a more relaxed pace. They genuinely do seem to like one another, and it’s always delightful to see the evidence.
Tonight, Liz set up a second bunny cottage for Phineas and Daisy. More and more, this living room area is really becoming their area. Another few months of this Covid-19 business, and I feel like they’ll be in charge of more of the house than us.
It’s been a long, long time since we brought Daisy home. She’s had a rough life, and spent a long time as a classroom rabbit (and must have endured a lot of poking and proding from a lot of tiny hands).
