One of our testers, Maddie, was featured on KOMO news yesterday morning. She appeared twice, first live, and then recorded for later viewing. Her publicist refused the request for two live viewings as Maddie had a busy Easter weekend.
Tilbert makes his dash to the downstairs litter box after dinner. His white pigeon-toed run always makes me grin.
And, yes, the bunnies chewed those chunks into the rubber floor mat.
Walking through a pet store today, we saw this pretty young girl being carried around by an employee. Of course we followed the employee to the back of the store, where Bunbun was placed in the cart next to the employee who continued with feeding the fish.
When I requested to take a picture, she offered to put his Halloween pirate cap on, but I said no, because I love to look at those BIG white ears.
I have the feeling that Tilbert is waiting for his midnight snack at noon. They have gotten used to getting a snack on the former night stand (now the Raisin Altar). And the past two weeks he has been ravenous, devouring his greens and dancing around my feet for his pellets (when he is not simply camped by his pellet bowl). Both bunnies have a healthy appetite for hay, but they haven’t been as interested in that as veggies. Side note: Mom came up and saw the gold-rimmed bowl full of greens, and exclaimed, “Are you using your grandmother’s Lenox bowl to feed your bunnies?!”
Maddie proves that bunnies like to keep a clean house. Her owner asked us to bunnysit for a few days. He had thought a litterbox would be too hard for her to enter with only three legs, so she never got a proper box. But she proved us wrong and took to using it in less than a day. We used techniques that we learned from Kicked, Bitten and Scratched to change her habit of peeing in the left corner and pooping in the center of her xpen. We placed the letterbox in that left corner, moved the xpen so it blocked access to the side of the letterbox, and placed hay, pellets and veggies into the box so she associated it with good things. We also placed the veggie bowl on cup to raise it a bit as she seemed to back onto the plate and do her business there.
The Rabbit of Caerbannog has spoken, and requested a few regal changes to his own Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch:
We added braided wheatgrass, crossed it as on the original Hand Grenade, and removed the packet of bits that made such a mess.
We also made it available to retailers since we couldn’t get our butt into gear to sell online ourselves. Check out Bunny Bytes Saturday, September 1.
Like all bunnies expressing happiness, Tilbert and Violet “shudder”. But during shedding season, when the fur goes flying in all directions before they scamper off, it reminds me of Witch Hazel from the old Bugs Bunny cartoons.
Violet says eat right, get plenty of exercise, and always approve of any photo of your butt before it hits the internet.
