Cleaning day...

Today is cleaning day. Rabbitat is cleaned every weekend. Cleaning the 10x15 rabbitat consists of: removing straw, all blankets, cleaning litter pans, sweeping, mopping, drying the floor, putting down fresh newspaper and straw, dodging the mosquito's and keeping an eye out for large spiders, then, put everything back where it was. May not sound like much, but it takes an hour. It was almost 80 degrees in there today too. I like cleaning the rabbitat in the afternoon, the buns are pretty sleepy and tend to stay out of the way.

Here are the boys, hiding under the 2nd level, waiting for me to finish....


Bambi and Cinnamon wait for me to finish too...


They all love when I start to put out the fresh straw and timothy hay. They start digging in as soon as it comes out.

The mosquitos have been bad. One was sitting on Cinnamon's nose the other day. They are everywhere. I put some Bounce sheets in the rabbitat to keep them away, but it doesn't seem to be helping.
