He's Got The Energy

I was hoping I might be getting more photos for this blog from my new house guests, but it's a bit tricky - Tate especially rarely stops moving if the human treat dispenser (me) is in the room.

"Camera, eh? Well I've not heard of one of those snacks, but I'm willing to give it a quick taste test! Here I come...

House Guests

Having essentially decided I'm not going to adopt any more bunnies of my own, and Anouksa in the past expressing her opinion clearly about other bunnies in the house, I figured that was that. But I am weak and when I heard that brothers Tate and Lyle needed a warm house for the winter due to Tate's medical issues I couldn't not foster them.

Still, I wonder how Crazy Bunny Lady guessed, after I'd resisted for so long, that I wouldn't say no to this particular pair?

"Call me paranoid, but why do so many of the pictures on your walls already look like me?"

Oh Lyle, are you sitting comfortably? I have so many tales to tell you...

Mood Selector


What do you reckon? Sleepy? Grumpy? Deep in thought? I can never quite tell with Anouska. Actually, I am going to go with that last one and the thought is "I wonder how big a hole I need to chomp into his jeans to get him to move out of my way?"...

Unfortunately, yesterday morning MrB mistakenly thought it was treat-time and came rushing out in time to see Anouska getting her medicine. Which because I've managed to convince her it is a tasty treat, somebun is somewhat confused about what appears to be uneven snack distribution.

I reckon we are at most another day away from me having to concoct some elaborate ruse to put him off. Any suggestions?

Meta-Painless, Meta-Yum

We are having another go at giving Anouska Metacam pain relief for a couple of weeks to see if her agility improves. She has always been a bit awkward in her movement and it has gradually gotten worse as she has aged.

Last time she had Metacam was actually to support a stasis recovery, she wasn't keen, but then it was just one of several medicines she had to endure. So while most bunnies think it is a tasty treat, I was concerned that she wouldn't take it. I needn't have worried.

"Can I get a second hit of that?"

Post Sick Post

We had a bit of a scare with Anouska yesterday, she was having really bad discomfort/pain and stopped eating, not sure what caused it. Vet trip, gut motility meds, pain meds... and now this look.

I'm pretty sure that's not her "I'm impressed with your handling of the situation and making sure I stayed healthy" look.

"Oh, you're here."

"I've heard the word 'diet' a few times recently, yeah, sure, like you, we are a bit podge right now, but you need to remember something pal..."


Yes, but they're also full of sugar, soooo...... Sorry.
