Monday Bunday

Tyler settles in for his long winter's nap in
his apple box house while Harriet keeps guard.


Tyler's story; boy looses home; boy finds home and looses sister; boy finds sister; boy and sister meet a girl; boy, sister and girl becomes friends, it's a little complicated; boy,sister and girl meet another girl, it becomes more complicated; boy and sister become fast friends with second girl while first girl is away; boy meets first girl again........

Why can't dates be fun?

Amelia has gotten the OK from the vet to come off of restricted activity and social isolation. This required a completed reconfiguration of the pens and rabbit flow. I combined all the pens and set them up so that Harriet and Amelia could if need be, be separated by the Spots in the middle. I was unhappy with the lack of space. The Spots are used to roaming and really did a lot of running at BFs, I could see them becoming fat, lazy and complacent. To combat this trend I decided to divide the room more or less in half with fencing for exercise purposes. Tyler on discovering he could come out the pen went on an extended hop about of the territory. DS's room, the study/computer room, even the bathroom with it's cold tile floor did not go unexamined. A quick gnaw at a familiar bookcase in the study was, I imagine Tyler's
"Kilroy was here", better than peeing in the corner as far as I am concerned.

Amelia did plenty of hopping and chinning in her bigger space. You can see where she was shaved for her injury, it looks like her leg is falling off. Her other wound was on her shoulder.

Amelia on her side has been boxing with both Harriet and Sydney, bonding with them seems to have regressed to not quite square one, maybe square one and a half. Thinking I could easily re-bond Tyler and Amelia I popped them in a little pen in the kitchen. They squeezed themselves into the tiny littler box, but there was no grooming. I tried putting them both in Amelia's pen, but Tyler got snippy, he needs more time. Boy meets girl again on a speed date and doesn't like the pressure....

Amelia interprets the Eclipse.

Have a Great Week, don't miss acknowledging The Eclipse, there hasn't been a lunar eclipse on a Solstice for 372 years......

LOVE the pic of Tyler and Amelia in the litterbox, that is just too cute. I'd say Tyler's got it made with all the ladies--it's just a matter of getting the ladies to be ladylike towards each other.

Christina said...

Glad that Amelia is feeling better. We will be watching the eclipse for sure.

Waiting for the lunar eclipse and another installment of "As the Rabbit Moon Turns".

I love Amelia's interpretation of the eclipse,

Missing the eclipse thanks to the rain but that's ok, it'll be on the web... not the same but ah that's life! Still admiring my friend in SC with the patience of a saint when it comes to bunny bonding... I would have given up long ago. You are amazing. I hope H and A get it together. It sounds kind of like Tyler likes Harriet better or she's been talking smack about Amelia so Tyler is taking sides! Oi the drama!

Rabbits' Guy said...

My but it is complicated. I wonder if there ever have been 4 house rabbits actually all bonded nicely? I don't think we even plan to try it!

Probably cloudy here too ...

Michelle May said...

Like most boys (sorry RG if you read this)he is confused with so much chatter and opinons from the gals. He will sit back and wait until someone tells him what to do. hee,hee,hee.
Looking forward to the moon. Will set my alarm clock!

Tyler's story...is complicated. I'll have a look out for the Eclipse..now the real one, remember you sent the book :) I am guessing, parcel not arrived yet but still hoping it does before Christmas ;0

Cara said...

So much drama. Will the next installment have Jacob and The Man In Black?

Lisa said...

I do feel sorry for men like Tyler with so many warring women. I missed the eclipse :( too late for me to stay up, and I had to work today.

I like the impression of the eclipse. Thanks for the link to the times. Ours began at 1:something a.m., and since I was awake, I thought of going out to see/photograph, but heavens, it was cold at 19 degrees. And because it was overhead, there was no way to see it out a window.

The lovely armadillo shirt arrived, and it will be the perfect accessory for the pajama sale at the needlework shop. Look for it in an upcoming episode, with appropriate links to you, of course!

Oh, and a stitchy blogger linked to this, the funniest illustrated cartoon blog I've ever, ever seen:

Oh boy. What stubborn buns.

Hey RG-I had 4 bonded buns at one point. Which didn't last when Cinnamon got sick. I didn't bother trying to rebond...

Paula said...

How did I miss this??? Everybun looks like their finding their way in the new warren. And the eclipse was spectacular. I'm sorry you had cloud cover. Maybe you'll see the next one. ;D

I hope it is not quite back as far as square one and a half. I have not even tried to continue bonding my four. Too many things going on with the human aspect of the household to really give it the effort it needs. Maybe in the spring. In the meantime, I hope things progress well for you.

Great photos of neat buns.
