Clint and Gerald (aka The Boys) are in the garage and were stressed at first, they are better now. Unfortunately my plan of putting them out during the day has not happened because it has been too cold during the day. So I feel bad for them because they have no running room.
Bambi and Cinnamon are doing okay, they are definitely not behaving as well as they did last time they were in the house. Bambi can't seem to leave Cinnamon alone, she keeps humping him. I think Cinnamon might be getting tired of it, he seems to be fighting back a bit. I let them out during the day, but they have to be constantly watched, which I don't have time for. Bambi already chewed the phone cord to the new phone in the living room, she also likes to eat the artificial Christmas tree. Cinnamon likes eating the plants, which I just sprayed with perfume, so we will see if that continues.
I think when Bambi and Cinnamon have their own, permanent space (probably in the office) they will be happier and we will get a better routine going. I will head over to binkybunny.com to get advice from the gals over there. I have learned lots from them over the years. They also have some great bunny toys I will have to check out while I am there.
Those of you that have buns in the house, that are free to wander, if you have advice for me please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the rabbitat this morning. Got 3 more inches of snow last night. It's been windy too.
Bambi and Cinnamon both love being under the tree. I told them not to eat baby Jesus (took me years to find a Nativity scene I liked). They are chewing on the pine cones though. Drat!
Not sure why they are both in the box, never seen them do that before.

Now that it is colder I double, or triple up on the blankets, they love to get them dirty too, so I had to get more.
Little guinea pig went home, it was sad. Now I have my eye on the paper for one that needs to be 'rescued', none of the local shelters had any.

We had the pleasure of being hissed at by this owl. I love owls.

Bambi and Cinnamon the same weekend. I think they look so funny with their ears down.

It's getting colder and darker now. We put up all the walls on the rabbitat to protect them from the weather. Though this October has been fairly good weather wise, it has been freezing at night. Buns have extra blankets and straw too.
Two of the walls have 'windows' and we plan on putting another one in so they can still get natural light. I go out every morning and night with a flashlight, and there is a small light installed in the rabbitat. I wish I could leave the light on for them during the day. Hubby still takes off a wall in the afternoon just so they get more light. When it gets colder we won't do that.
We got the rabbits 2 years ago this month. I have learned so much about rabbits in 2 years. I'm glad we have them, even if they do drive me crazy. Tonight I went out to feed them and found Bambi and Cinnamon completely dumped one of their corner litter pans. Thanks, I will clean that up after I fill in Clint and Gerald's hole....

Seems Gerald did most of the work this time. But I know they work together.
Of course they don't help me fill it back up. Took me about 20 minutes. I have to make sure it all gets packed in nice and tight since they were under one of the support posts. Clothes ended up in the hamper and I'm pooped out.
Got enough dirt up your nose Gerald?
So you see that sunkin part of the dirt, in the middle? That is where they went down, then to the right under the cement post.

So far he ate a few buttons off the very top, page up, down, #3, #9 and a few off the bottom. Most buttons we don't use anyway, so we don't miss them.

Then Tiki had to test drive the other box, before the boys got it.

The rabbits get 3 or 4 different veggies. I don't give them bok choy, they don't like it, which is too bad because it's cheap; they also don't like green pepper. Fruit just depends on what is on hand, but I make sure we have pineapple about every other week, as it's supposed to help pass/break up hairballs. They get a small pinch of oats in the morning, except for Clint (green food bowl) because he doesn't like them.
Cinnamon has this bad habit of dumping his bowl over. The problem with this is that he already takes so long to eat, when he dumps his bowl over pellets go everywhere and it takes him forever to find them. So here is my solution:
He still manages to lift the bowl, but not completely dump it over.
Came home on Friday and saw this:

I was completely prepared for overheated bunnies today. Hubby checked on them at lunch time. Brought them fresh, cold water and turned the fans up.
This morning I put up more shade cloth and put out the frozen water bottles.
Each side (or rabbit pair) gets 2 bottles. I cover them with a thin baby blanket so the buns don't get all wet from sweaty bottles.
When I went out to the rabbitat Clint had both ears down, when I brought the bottles in only one ear (his good one) stood up. Silly rabbit....

As I watched her I thought she was sitting funny, and her tail looked odd. I noticed she had poop stuck to her butt. I got the camera and took a few pics. Her right leg looked funny as she hopped away from me, kind of sticks out a bit. She didn't run from me either, I'm not sure that she could. I also noticed that she pooped lots, which rabbits do, you just don't normally see it coming out.
Unfortunately I have no safe traps (I have no traps at all). I don't know if she is a bun that hangs out in our yard often, or a newbie. Can you tell what's wrong? Should I try to trap her? Or just let wild buns be wild buns?
