This Monday meeting is to determine exactly how the mirror buns are doing it. The going theory is that it's some kind of bunny hive mind that they've tapped into or a potential bunny mind meld.
One thing's for sure--it could be useful for obtaining treats, so they need to get to the bottom of this phenomenon ASAP!

Simon and River are binkying it up this St. Patty's Day!

Bunnies are prey animals and they need to trust you before they're comfortable being pet or handled (most bunnies never like being picked up because it's hard-wired into them that being picked up is the last thing that happens before being eaten by a predator). Little ones don't understand why the cute bunny doesn't want to be held and cuddled or why the bunny scratched or bit at them while trying to run away.
If the bunny was bought as a well-meaning Easter gift, this is usually the time when people set their now fired Easter bunny free. Those bunnies end up either killed by predators because they can't camouflage themselves like wild bunnies can or the lucky ones end up in the local animal shelter. Each year, shelters are inundated with fired Easter bunnies shortly after the holiday because people weren't prepared to have a bunny as a pet.
I don't normally ask this, but please help spread the word to anyone you know with kids who may think that buying a bunny for Easter is a good idea and tell them it isn't. A pet that can easily live 10 years with proper care isn't an impulse purchase.

I caught River attempting to push Simon over. I should note that her actions were not completely unprovoked because Simon was forcibly placed in "time-out" earlier. River is making excellent use of his distracted cleaning frenzy in order to enact her revenge. Clearly, someone has been reading their Bun Tzu.

River made herself a hay mattress.Near as I can figure, this is what she did:
1. Pull out all of the blue cloth from the ziploc container and set it aside.
2. Collect 90% of the hay in her cage and transfer it to the ziploc.
3. Cover the hay with the blue pieces of cloth.
5. Profit (way more comfy sleepy-time).
She was not a happy camper when I dismantled her creation. I was worried she was nesting and I wanted to test to see if she'd do it again (as a spayed female, that's a cause for concern doing something outside of her normal behavior) and I didn't want her wasting all of her hay as bedding. She hasn't had a repeat performance, so at least I know she's healthy and learns quickly.

Simon: Oh...I thought that was a snack.
I think leaving their favorite treat of oats was a fitting tribute
to Mr. Snowbunny.
Thanks for visiting the blog and we hope you have a great weekend! We'll be back with more bunny cuteness on Monday.

Simon was understandably concerned when River almost fell off the back of the couch while attempting to climb the curtains.
For everyone's peace of mind, River (aka Danger Bun) is now no longer allowed on the back of the couch.
