The demon spawn has a litter box full of good looking poop and a good appetite. She got a branch of our blackberry plant just to check. And yes, it has thorns. Rabbits can eat plants with thorns. Which I am taking as more proof of her origins right now.

Please note, I do love Gladys and I don't literally think she is demon spawn. It's a very loving cursing her name going on right now. I was fully aware of how destructive rabbits can be before I got her and was ready for it. Well as ready as someone can be, everytime she does something I just shake my head as I clean up after her.

The twins had their first grooming appointment ever today. The girl doing their grooming said that both were really well behaved and great during their appointments. I could have sworn the girl grooming them was wearing a black shirt but it was grey when she brought them back after (so much fluff). They got brushed, nails trimmed, scent glands cleaned and ear, teeth and eye checked.

After, they did switch areas. Neither seemed too happy, rabbits do like consistency, but Gladys needed something newish in her life. That little girl is a bundle of energy. Frodo could do with a change too.... mostly because he's killing the grass again.

Gladys seeing if she can jump the fence.

Awwww! I just got a rabbit recently, and I've really enjoyed reading about yours. I hope you will eventually be able to get the twins bonded together again. They look like a lot of fun.

What's for dinner? I realized I haven't shown what the twins dinner bowl looks like. They, of course, got fresh leafy greens. Tonight was dandelion leaves, cilantro, parsley, spinach and kale.

In their bowl:
  • 1/4 cup oxbow pellets (just enough to cover the bottom of the bowl)
  • 1 Skin, molt, shed support popper since it is shedding season. It's a handmade blend of herbs to help keep things moving in their guts.
  • 1 Herbal Crunchy which is a blend of herbs with various health benefits. A bunny multivitamin of sorts.
  • 1/4 of a Happy Belly Biscuit. Which is another blend to help maintain gut health.
  • 3 black oil sunflower seeds another shedding aid to prevent build up (sensing a theme?). Black oil are smaller than normal sunflower seeds and are the safe sunflower seeds for rabbit. They have a high oil content and thin shells. The striped sunflower seeds human eat are different. Only twice a week for this one because of fat content.
  • 2 small pieces of papaya which has enzymes to help break down hair in the gut.
  • 3 goji berries which is a super food to help their immune system in a tasty low sugar treat.
  • Pinch of burdock roots to help immune system, liver and heart health.
  • Pinch of dandelion roots to help liver, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties.
  • Pinch of rose hips for vitamin C and antioxidants.
  • Liberal pile of mixed dried plants (right now primarily apple leaves and cilantro with some small apple bits in the mix, but it varies I get focused blends along with random blends from their bunny subscription box).

Here it is all mixed up. It does look bigger because close up, the bowl is about palm size, the bright red goji berries are smaller than rasins and the round popper is maybe a penny in diameter.

It's been hot around here which means the buns are laying low to avoid the heat. Lots of stretching out on stones to cool down and drinking plenty of water. Luckily, stones and shade are plentiful in the yard.

PS, Frodo is fine, he's just been camera shy lately.

PPS, the plant she's munching on is one of Peter's old raspberry bushes (bunny who passed away got raspberry bushes when he was sick because it was all he would eat). This one got sunburned and not enough water in the last week. It's getting some bunny pruning and hopefully will come back next year.

Frodo got the other raspberry bush and I took some photos. The thing about Frodo is he is pretty skittish. He really isn't a huge people bunny so photos of him require me hanging out for a while until he calms and bribery to get him to come near. Someday I'll win him over.

It also goes to show nature over nurture because the twins were born together, raised together and have the exact same environment. But Gladys loves people and pets while Frodo could do without.

Just saw a Chewy commercial with two buns & of course, thought of you. So dam cute. I mean, cats are cute but buns are like the icing on the carrot cake of cuteness.
