Year of the Bunny
brought Bruno home on Easter from our friends Zachary and Karynn! He has been such a fun pet. He's super soft, he is so cute, and best of all, he is so quiet!
We bought him a little cat tunnel/scratching thing with little balls hanging down to bat around. Sometimes he's more into it than other times, LOL. What can I say--he's a spoiled little bunny! We had to put the cardboard on top of the cage in back because he figured out he could jump on top of the cage and then out back in June last year. We were going to make something more permanent, but you know, once the cardboard worked, pretty much everything else was a higher priority, so we never got around to it. The clear plastic in the front of his cage is part of a mat that goes under an office chair. When he was in the study, Bruno used to push out his cage with his nose so that he could lay on the plastic chair mat. It must feel nice and cool! So when we moved him into the schoolroom, we cut off part of another mat and put it in his cage for his napping enjoyment. He usually flops down there after he's been running around for awhile.
Sometimes the kids will let him run around the playroom (on the other side of the entryway from the schoolroom), which has the added benefit of having doors AND no cords. We also take him outside when the weather is nice, and he loves to hop around the yard and dig in the mulch. He's been hiding under the minivan in the driveway the past few times we took him out, though. I think he feels vulnerable in the yard without our big oak tree having really any leaves yet! We see a hawk circling around up high, and I'm guessing Bruno sees him too.
I'm so glad we went ahead and got Bruno! He is such a sweetheart, and the perfect pet for us right now!
