Understanding Bunnies, Part 2

Lesson two: how to tell if it’s time to feed your bunny.

It’s always time to feed your bunny. But there are different ways to communicate how late you are with feeding your bunny. For example:

Feed me now:

Why haven’t you fed me yet?

My New Domain

So, we moved to a new house.

Mum and dad say things aren’t quite all unpacked or set up yet, but as long as my food bowl & litter box are in the right spot, I don’t mind. Besides, I’ve got lots of chinning & sniffing to do.

Oh, and I also need to sit and admire my new domain.

Oh, right, sorry Betsy… I mean “our” domain.

Sorry, what’s that, dad? “Your” house? Ha ha ha, nope! It’s MINE!

Now bring me some treats.

What Do You Mean, “Moving?”

Wait, what do you mean by “moving?” I didn’t give you permission to move!

We’re just going to sit here until you put all the furniture back the way it was.

Even though dad says we’re not moving far, and that we’ll have a yard to play in (while supervised), a garden to grow food & treats for us, and a bigger house to explore, I’m still not happy with the changes.

Bunnies in Motion

So, dad’s been playing around with some new fangled “vine” video thing. Despite the name, you can’t eat it – which is very disappointing.

But it can show short videos of us, and that makes it all worthwhile.

A New Place to Nap

So, recently I’ve been trying out a new place to take my afternoon naps.

What? I don’t think there is anything wrong with this location – although dad was rather surprised.

Actually, surprising dad was kind of the point of this exercise. I like to keep him on his toes.

This position in particular really confused dad.

Or, in other words: Mission Accomplished.
