A Really Long (Boring) Gush About Our Bunnies

Okay, seriously, I don’t remember much of what happened in 2010 after July, now. But obviously the most significant thing was our bunnies! We picked up our little baby Flemish Giant bunny Fluffleupagus on September 18th.
Bunneh!

And then we (well mostly I but whatevs) were really concerned that our poor girl was lonely while we were at work all day, so on November 7th, we went to RabbitEars and picked up Hellspawn, who we think is a Mini Lop. (Okay, we didn’t think anything except maybe smushy faced lop. The vet thinks he’s a Mini Lop, much better source of information than us.)

She’s basically the sweetest bunny ever (although she’s chewing up our carpet and we have to watch cords around her, she’s destroyed quite a few ’cause we’re not always conscientious and we didn’t wrap all our cords).

He doesn’t look like it, but he’s the biggest grump ever! When he’s upset (or by this time, it could be habit, we’re not sure anymore), he jumps on our bed and pees. Just one spot, surrounded by 2 (or 20) poops, so we know it’s him!

She still jumps up on our bed now and then, but he’s currently banned from the bed; we’re too scared to test him. (We’re well trained. :p) On the other hand, when we adopted him he basically had perfect poop habits, always in the litterbox, except when angry, but little lady Flufflela is a bad influence and now we pick up poop all the time. Good thing the little poop balls aren’t gross except for when they’re soft.

By the way, bunnies can be litterbox trained. When misa and neb got their bunnies and told us about that, it was a game changer. We were talking for a long time about getting a dog, and afterwards it became maybe a dog and a rabbit (or two), but now (years later) that we have Fluffa and Hellspawn, we’re pretty settled — I don’t think we’re getting a dog anymore. I’m not claiming zero pee mistakes, but pretty close. Also two bunnies is not much more work than one, except when they’re not bonded. When they were still working on becoming buddies, it was so. much. work. They kept peeing in and near each other’s areas (we were keeping them separate) as a territory marking sort of a thing and it was awful. Now that they are chums, it’s not too much extra work at all. So worth it.
