Flip Flop Disgruntled Lop!

Anyone who lives with rabbits knows that the hidey box is an essential element to keeping them happy. They need bolt holes and places to snuggle that offer cover similar to a real underground warren. But bunny people also know that rabbits are creatures of habit and do not like change. They hate having their pens cleaned after all that carefully placed "scent" (dooters) and especially hate when their boxes are replaced. Old boxes are reconstructed and deconstructed, chewed, stomped, scratched, shredded, wee'd upon, pooped in, and lined with hay and floof. Boxes are as sacred to bunnies as their litter boxes and their dignity.

But there just comes a point when the boxes HAVE to be changed. I line the floor with flattened boxes that I get at Wal Mart.  We have tried blankets, but that does not go well. I change their floor every time I clean, but decided that it was time to change hidey boxes for the new year, you know, to start afresh.  This went over like a turd in a punchbowl with Minnie, who is a bit neurotic about her boxes. She spend the last 24 hours scratching and gnawing to make this new box suitable. She drove us crazy with her grunting and scratching and scattering her hay all over the place. She drove the other bunnies crazy with her grunting and obsessive rearranging of everything that would move. These boxes should be good until Summer, Heaven help us.

  5. Brandi, Your bunnies are so beautiful. I can see the video on Fen's computer, but not on my tablet. They are so beautiful and obedient and two are really big. Do they accept snuggles from strangers from out of state?

    1. Boyfriend DID like snuggles, but since it usually leads to me grooming him, he decided to like cuddling...Mean Girl will relax in my arms for a nice cuddle ONCE I CATCH HER. Myra and Minnie (the two big girls) LOVE snuggles and ear rubs and being baby talked and told how pretty and special they are...as Mr. Bubbles points out "(name of rabbit) IS VIBRATING!". He is referring to tooth purrs of course.

    2. Mr. Bubbles is too funny. I know I am repeating myself, but Fen once said, "that rabbit just gave me the foot." It actually was a "thump" but Fen caught me off guard and the bunn really did have this "That's right, guy, I gave you the foot, and you over there, what are you laughing about?" look. Well, you have wonderful bunns. So, cuddles for Boyfriend, catching and snuggles for Mean Girl, and just plain old snuggles and SUTTR for Myra and Minnie, and a blessed year for you and all of yours.

  6. It took me three different boxes to find a replacement Zoey and Chico would accept. It is a Crown Royal - I should have known. The Jimmy Dean sausage one was a total bust.
