Gladys is home and in the recovery kennel. All went well, just need to keep an eye on her for the next few days.

While she was gone, the patio got cleaned out.

And Frodo was relocated from the yard to the patio.

He would like everyone to know this is cruel and unusual treatment because he no longer has his grass or plants. However, the plan has always been that once the buns are reunited they would spend weekdays in the patio and weekends in the yard. They are still a few weeks off from reuniting (Gladys needs to fully heal). But the yard is going to get reseeded and hopefully there will be fresh new grass. The movement plan is both for their safety and because the yard needs a break. While Peter lived full time in the yard, there were times he was locked in the hutch all day or was put in too late. There are dangers in our area to bunnies and it really is safer in the patio. Plus Peter was a grumpy old man and didn't like being held or touched much making moving him very challenging. Peter also didn't really know he could eat the plants or grass so he wasnt hard on them. I think it was only in his last few months he even figured it out.

Rest up and take it easy, Gladys. Glad your surgery went well. 🤗 You will be reunited with Frodo soon. :bunny:

Gladys is a grumpy girl now that her meds wore off. She tossed her food dish (notice the spray of pellets) and is ignoring her toys. I did purposefully give her a tossable food dish to vent her frustrations on.

Gladys is *not* all about the crate life. She's settled into a habit of doing circles around the edge. Tossing anything she can and nudging the litter/hay box this way and that. Then she passes out for a well earned nap. Before waking up and doing it all again. So far, she's completely shredded a toy a day (willow balls and rings being her favorite toys).

The other part of her routine is daily meds which she most definitely hates.

Clearly not a good patient! Given her adventurous spirit, I guess it isn’t surprising that she’d hate being confined and forced to take meds. Hang in there, Gladys!

Gladys finished her medications so she moved from the small space inside to the hutch. She's still confined inside the hutch to prevent her from wild and crazy running (still has 1-2 weeks of healing) but its more space. It was also just in time because she had started working on an escape plan to bust out of the kennel (its upside down so the hole was at the bottom).

The crazy thing is that was the front panel. We swear it wasn't there last night and I sure didn't see it this morning. It's possible she heard me saying she was moving today and decide waiting from when I left at 5am (still dark) to 10am was just way too long for a bunny to wait.

Gladys was moved out to the hutch last week. Day 1 was great because she was in a new bigger space. By day 4 of hutch only we had a really mad bunny on our hands. She was on a 14 day medical limited movement though so mad bunnys had to deal with it. Gladys is definitely a particular bun so she started throwing her veggies into the litter box and generally destroying the hutch. Luckily, yesterday we could let her out of the hutch and give her back yard access. We had planned on waiting so the grass could grow more but Gladys was not having it. So the hutch was opened and one happy bunny went dashing out.

She's very busy in the yard running, jumping and binking all over the place. Today is the second yard day and she's already eyeing the hutch roof to explore.

I just went back and looked at Gladys’s photos from September. She’s really grown!

I'm sure Gladys is enjoying her yard time - how long before she can be reunited with Frodo???
