We finally moved into our new home last weekend.  My biggest fear was whether Brian Bum would be ok with it, as he's been used to the freedom of the place being carpeted (never once ventured onto the laminate in the kitchen!), and our new place is laminate throughout.  I'm overthemoon at how well he's settled in.  Until we get properly sorted & get a nice rug for the bedroom he's most content with an unrolled sleeping bag under the bed, his flag, his pashmina & cushion.  We were worrying in case it confused him & we'd have to litter train him again, but nope, he's been an absolute treasure (well apart from a sole poop on the bed the first day, but  we all have our little accidents!) We kept his old litter in there so he knew the smell, and the same with his cage, didn't want to lose all the comforting smells in one go. The bedroom is much smaller now and we thought we'd have to keep him locked in his cage at night in case he whacked his head on the bedframe jumping in and out, but he manages it just fine.

He ventured out of his bedroom & up the hallway last Thursday, and has made good use of the rugs in the living room since, coming out and lounging happily in front of the tv, he's most unconcerned with the noise of the tile cutter and I can't believe how much friendlier he is.  He was never one for sitting on laps having a stroke, only jumping on the bed at 3am demanding a cuddle, but  he'll jump up now, yesterday he even quite forcefully got a mouthful of slipper and dragged my foot out the way so he get up on the sofa. i needn't have lost sleep worrying.  The Bum is in his element.

I am playing catchup as I have been out of town, and I wanted to say congratulations on your new place, and that's great that  Brian quickly felt at home!

Just a quick update.  My boy brought a tear to my eye over the weekend!  He spent Friday evening with me on the living room floor, adamant I wasn't going to ignore him, by snatching the pen out of my hand every time i went to write, launching himself off the sofa onto my back, chewing the tv guide, racing round me hurling himself on the newly applied glitter glue, pulling the plant over when i wasn't looking, and wedging his head under my arm for a cuddle, and of course you cant ignore such pleas, so it took many hours to get done what would usually take half an hour.  The other half popped him into the hallway Saturday as he hasn't dared venture the whole of the flat, but since then he's been charging up and down as and when he pleases, and this morning there I was chatting away to my little chicken pie under the bed as he usually is, when he appeared from the hallway!!  Seems as soon as the bedroom door was opened he was out and up the hallway to his new found "spot" under the dining room table.

House rabbits definitely make the perfect pet!!

Spacehopper,  I just love the tales of Brian.  You describe them so well.  The adventures of Brian BubbleBum could make a a great children's series.  Just add a little drama, a beginning, middle and end, and off  you go!

The boyfriend went into where the Bum came from on Monday and was smitten with a little fluffy blue rabbit (nederland dwarf something or other), and had the bun not already been sold, he would have done the unforgiveable & bought it. I could never share my affections with another!! lol There I was sur le trône this morning, with a feeling of being watched, and when I peered around the door, there was the Bums sat looking at me. Then he leapt off up into the living room, and then trotted back, stopping to look in on me again, before disappearing into the living room once more. Once I was washed & dressed I went to see what he was up to as he had been very quiet. In I walked to find him happily munching on the roof tiles of my little http://www.abc-learningfun4u.com/8s...pool.html. If anyone is tempted by one of these things, don't be. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but no matter how carefully you do it, it still looks as awful as the one shown on the box!!
As soon as he realised I was watching him, he turned and looked up at me (I'm sure he was grinning), and then hopped through my legs to the safety of the bedroom. Little beast!
