Amelia and Harriet and Harriet and Amelia with Rose Petals.....
Following our instructions to bond more often for less time, we had a quick session today in the bathroom, which is neutral territory as far as Harriet and Amelia are concerned. I opted out of putting them in the tub because, frankly, the plant is a pain to move; huge, heavy, a bit fragile. I tried to carry them both in the basket shown in the picture, but couldn't get Amelia to wait while I picked up Harriet; so much for carpooling.
However once both buns were in the bathroom I smooshed them both in the basket and did cross petting. When they free to get out of the basket they immediately did so, but soon the basket became a item of fascination for both and on separate occasions each rabbit hopped in and dug at the towel.
I did more smooshing and cross petting on the floor and we had rose petals for snacks. There was a little charging and maybe one attempted nip, which isn't bite, remember, but a communication saying pay attention to ME. I stopped the session on a happy rose petal tinged note and hopefully the girls will remember their nice date tomorrow when we bond again.
HAPPY SPRING AND REMEMBER TO PET A BUNNY
(OR REASONABLE SUBSTITUTE).
