Yes, we have missed Monday Bunday and profuse apologies to all followers who expect a post. However yesterday, Monday Bunday, to be precise, an achievement was achieved. All bunnies had their nails trimmed at home by me. Usually we have a field trip to the Rabbit Haven adoption show where there is also a bunny spa service, but having missed a couple of opportunities nails were getting quite long. Mandarin buns these are not.
I started easy with Amelia, who basically held out her paw to be trimmed, my goodness what cooperative gurl she is.
Harriet was next and, though not as ridiculously willing as Amelia, she presented no problems.
Tyler was surprised to picked up when he thought he was going to get an extended pet. He was a bit more squirelly, and I had to re-position him a few times, but in the end not much dignity was lost on either side.
Sydney has always been a problem even to pet, though she is friendly enough on her own terms and will give a bink sometimes when I come in the door. I found her in her pen, which is open on two sides, but she finds to be comforting space, she periscoped up to me thinking I had a treat for her, and I am sorry to say, I grabbed her when she was back on all fours. I am a horrible person, a betrayer of the worst kind. Once subdued she was pretty well behaved and wiggled less than her brother. I tortured her with snuggles and petting and a piece of apple, which surprisingly, she ate while I was holding her. Unlike past holding episodes this time Sydney didn't hold as much of the grudge and came out from behind the couch in less than an hour.
Be well Buns and All.
