Don't do it.

I caught Simon and River trying to double bunny dare one another to jump onto the coffee table.  This is why they can never be left unsupervised.

Hoppy Friday!

Simon and River were having a binky contest to celebrate the upcoming weekend.
Thanks for visiting the blog and we hope you have a great weekend!  We'll be back on Monday with more bouncy little buns.

You are so busted!

This is the look of a bunny who knows she's in big trouble.  I caught her red-pawed chewing on the Eddie Izzard CD jacket.  Naughty little bun!

Two in one!

Simon looks as startled as I felt when she jumped over both him and the hurdle.  That's a big jump for such a tiny bunny!

Secret bunny meeting.

Simon and River are very impressed by the mirror buns' ability to mimic everything that they do.  It's almost as if they were reading their minds!
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!

I want to believe.

The bunnies are no longer allowed to binge watch The X-Files.
Thanks for visiting the blog and we hope you have a great weekend!  We'll be back on Monday.

Compare and contrast.

River has managed to find a really comfy pillow to flop on while Simon has discovered the most awkward flopping position imaginable.  It's also clear that he possesses elbows (or at least now we know where he hides them when he's flopped).

How you can help save a bunny.

Spring is the season where we start to see the ads with adorable little bunnies in the run up to Easter.  Some people think that a bunny would make a great gift for their child on Easter morning.  Sadly, bunnies tend to be considered as "starter pets" and because they're cute, they must love being picked up and cuddled like a puppy or kitten would--nothing could be further from the truth.
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.
Thank you.

Here I am!

All I have to do is ask, "Where is Simon Bun?" and the little guy will show himself.  It's cute because he'll usually come right over to me to let me know he's okay (and for noogies).

Sometimes their only purpose is to annoy one another.
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.

Clever girl!

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.
4.  ???
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.

The snowbunny.

River:  Great, all we need is the carrot and we'll be done!
Simon:  Oh...I thought that was a snack.
Sorry Mr. Snowbunny.  I'll find another treat for you.  In the meantime, please accept my nose-bonks and ear grooming as an apology.
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.

Brotherly love.

Hey, River--why don't we play somewhere else?
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.
