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!).
Just an example of one of the many weird things I have to put up with.
Dad is such a dork.
In this warm weather (or, at least, I think it’s warm out – I wouldn’t know; it’s always 72°F in our room) it’s important for bunnies to stay well hydrated.
So be sure to drink up!
I know it’s been a while, but we’re still around – we’ve just been… busy.
See? Very busy, with very important bunny business!
…And don’t you forget it!
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?
Lesson one: the subtleties of bunny communication.
Mildly interested in you:
Despises your very existence:
See the difference?
Next time: how to tell when it’s time to feed your bunny.
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.
Pssst… hey dad… dad!
…It’s TIME TO FEED THE BUNNIES.
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.
