In retrospect, it was a mistake to have a Godfather movie marathon in full view of Simon and River.
If my husband and I don't end up sleeping with the fishes, we'll be back on Monday. Have a great weekend!

River: The same thing that I do every night, Simon--how to take over the world!
Thursday, May 23, 2013
On that note, we hope you have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!

Me: What happened?
Simon: Uh, we had a slight carpet malfunction, but uh...everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?
Me: I'm coming over to investigate.
Simon: Uh, uh...negative, negative. Isn't that someone knocking at the door?River: Yeah! You better go answer it...might be a package you need to sign for or something!

Thank you to everyone who has enjoyed our blog enough to keep visiting! Our birthday wish is to make this year even better than the last. Given the number of candles that were just sacrificed, I think we'll be off to a good start!

This also spawned a nightmare with thumping at 2, 3, and 4am. She has quite an active imagination because she's honestly the first rabbit we've ever had that has gotten nightmares.
On the note of following your dreams, we hope you have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!

It's times like this that I feel like just another piece of playground equipment (in this case, a really awesome tunnel).
Hello!And Simon is the caboose...at least until River circles back around for another pass.

What you see here is my answer to bunny hay wasting and OCD-style digging in the hay that they decide is now only suitable for bedding.
I've been doing this for a few weeks now and I have to say that both Simon and River are eating more hay, their cages are cleaner, and River doesn't get into a crazed digging frenzy that tosses hay chaff everywhere. The trick is to get a very large handful of hay and fold it in half prior to placing it half-way into the butter box--I usually will do this to both ends of the box and refill as needed.
Thanks for visiting the blog and we hope you have a great weekend! We'll be back on Sunday for a special holiday post.

Simon has unwittingly volunteered for the role of River's catcher and hugger. I think this is the moment when River realized that she wasn't going to be able to stop in time. Bunnies may be able to turn on a dime, but they certainly can't stop on one!
Well, on that note, thanks for visiting and we hope you have a great weekend. We'll be back on Monday!

I also have two bunny tips for anyone interested:
1. Chamomile tea (diluted half strength for a 4 lb bunny, cooled and unsweetened) can be used to calm down a bunny who is overly nervous. Every bunny is different, but it may be worth a try especially if you have to travel with your bunny and you know they're stressed by it.
**If they don't seem to care for the taste, you can combine it with some unsweetened and cooled peppermint tea. You can also use just the peppermint tea to trick a sick bun into drinking water.MAKE SURE ANY TEA YOU GIVE YOUR BUNNIES IS AN HERBAL TEA THAT IS CAFFEINE FREE.
In our case, Simon gets frightened of rain storms that cause howling wind to the point that he'll give himself a minor bout of GI stasis from not eating during the storm. I put the tea in his water bottle that evening and made sure to give him plenty of hay and a scoop of oats to make him thirsty before the storm hit. He was fine the next day. Just don't leave the tea in the water bottle too long--overnight is the longest I'd go and make sure to thoroughly wash it out with soap and water afterwards.
2. Use safety pins to hold a piece of cloth to the lower bars of the cage if you have a bunny that enjoys digging in their litter box and kicking litter all over your floor. This saves having to vacuum in front of their cages every few days.
