I think that, given the time Phineas has spent in a smaller cage at Red Door, he’s had his fill… and is all about exploring. He’s been pretty fearless in our apartment, as he’s taken to jumping (and running) along the back of our couch, the tops of chairs, you name it. He has so much energy… the big question will be whether or not we can catch him, when we do finally move.
Located near Logan Boulevard and Sacrmento, the apartment is 1400+ square feet, has two bedrooms, a sun room, and tons of windows that overlook the building’s (kinda famous) courtyard as well as Logan Boulevard proper. Prior to us moving in in 2010, the entire apartment had been completely renovated, so everything inside is new. There are tons of closest, and each one has tons of shelving pre-installed. Heat is free, and in the summertime the landlord provides (and installs) AC units for free.
Since the rabbits came back from their vet visit last week, they’re on a few more medications (for a brief while). Though the mornings aren’t so bad, the evenings end up being an involved process where we have several different meds to line up for each bun.
Not an inexpensive visit, unfortunately. Phineas had some mucous buildup that was sent off to get tested, and Quincy had some buildup of gas in his secum. So they both had some extra medication to take, for a brief 2 week period. But all in all, good reports across the board. Quincy, despite his age, is looking good and keeping up with the ever-energetic Phineas.
We’re happy to announce our newest family member: Phineas. We met him when we were at Red Door Animal Shelter, on the lookout for a new friend for Quincy. When we met Phineas (originally called “Cowboy”), Liz and I both fell for him right away – he was curious, inquisitive, and not shy at all about hopping in your lap for some pets/attention.
