I found this little gem while looking through some older photos and thought you might get a chuckle out of it.

She hasn't given up on her dream--she's still plotting to get back there one day (if the constant looks she gives the entertainment center are anything to go by).

Have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!

Apparently, after 3 days of contentedly using the litter box for its intended purpose in her new bunny McMansion, River suddenly decided that she didn't want to go on that side of her cage anymore and made big nasty messes where her hay and food dish were. Understandably annoyed, this was my genius attempt at keeping River's litter box where I originally intended it to go.
No, I wasn't trying to get my bunny drunk in the hopes that she would be more amenable to my plan. It's just that the liquor bottle (filled with water) was the only thing both heavy and tall enough that when twist-tied to the cage, she couldn't knock over or move (not for lack of trying on her part, though). My reasoning being that if she didn't have access to the corner she wanted to make into a toilet, she'd go in her litter box.
River had other plans.
The sneaky little bun lulled me into a false sense of security by being a "good bunny" for a day, then decided to go all alpha bun on me and do what she wanted.
After a frustrating 4 day battle of wills, I had to admit defeat because she would happily stand in a lake of her own pee as if to prove a point. She even tried to drag her litter box over to where she wanted it to go as if saying, "Hey human--do you understand me now? How stupid can you possibly be?!"
I must admit to feeling a bit foolish after a week-long argument with a rabbit about the seemingly arbitrary placement of a litter box. I still hold that the reason for its original placement was so that she wouldn't hang out in it all the time and stain her fur, which is just gross. I do still chase her out of it occasionally, but she seems to have come to a truce about not sleeping in her toilet. Baby steps.

We hope you all have a very happy Valentine's Day and a great weekend! We'll be back on Monday.

I often wonder if he realizes that he's looking at himself in the mirror. Whatever the case, he's utterly fascinated by the other bunny he sees.

Simon keeps forgetting that with River being deaf, she pays way more attention to her surroundings than the average bunny. This makes sneaking up on her nigh on impossible unless she's sleeping.

Simon wasn't even trying to lick the glass. He just was sitting there and stuck his tongue out at himself (or the bunny he thinks is trapped in the mirror--almost like he's saying, "This is my girl, not yours!"). River has this "Boys are so immature!" look, which as close to an eye roll as a bunny can get.
In any case, I laughed way too hard when I saw this and thought you guys might get a chuckle out of it too. Have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!

We decided that with River being deaf and with both of their personalities demanding them to be alpha bun, it would be safer for everyone involved if these two were upgraded to their own McMansions instead of their efficiency apartments. We aren't going to try to have them live in the same enclosure again. For details on why we came to that decision, you can check out my other posts on their bonding exploits (if you haven't already) in: A cage too far and Bunny bonding take #2...let's just be neighbors.
I think I'll turn the bottoms of their old cages into planters for mint and parsley to keep them well supplied.
The bunnies have created a new game...
Admittedly, some work needs to be done on their litter box training, but I'm sure they were both so excited that they just couldn't contain themselves (or they made a mess during their game).

She just jumped up, turned around and sat there looking at us like this. Getting her down from something that slippery was fun too.
After I got her down, she kept looking at the other shelves of the entertainment center as if plotting her next adventure. They don't make enough baby gates for this.
