Busy Bunny

I’ve been keeping myself busy and lately I’ve started exploring the rest of the house – finding all the best places to flop or take a nap and ways to sucker mum & dad into giving me more treats.

Lounging beside the fireplace is a good place to spend the day – it’s a more central location, so I can keep an eye on mum & dad and pop out to demand treats whenever I want.

Underneath the chair is a good hiding place, too – maybe even better than behind the couch!

Sometimes I even make the trek all the way down the hall to dad’s office – to check on him, and make sure he’s working hard (so that he can buy me more treats).

Yes, it sure is a lot of tough work being as busy as I am these days.

Goodbye, Gus

Gus suddenly wasn’t feeling good this weekend, and though mum & dad took him to the vet right away, Sunday morning he couldn’t get up very well and he was very cold – so I snuggled up to him to try and keep him warm. But mum & dad said it wasn’t enough, and he had to go to the emergency room – but he didn’t come back.

It’s a little weird now not having to fight over the best bits of dinner, or squeeze past anybun in the cardboard tunnel, but mum & dad have been talking to me a lot and giving me lots of pats (no thanks) and treats (yes please).

Mum & dad seem pretty upset, but I’m not too worried about it – I’ll see Gus again someday.

Goodbye, Gus – I’ll leave some pellets in the bowl for you (but the kale is mine!).
