no more cage for Mead.  it's really not necessary.  she's litterbox trained.  actually the pens are set-up on the rug.  i took another pic so you can see what i mean.  you'll notice i had to already block off the sides and the middle from her.  of course Michael had to sneak in too.

she seems okay with it. she had to walk around and sniff every xpen bar last night... for me, it's so strange not having her right here in the living room. fortunately, she has so much out of cage time tho... so it's not like i'm never going to see her. she took right to the litterbox, it's a new one and it's not a corner box, so i didn't know if she'd like it, but she's been using it. she's already hopping in and out of the xpen to do her business, so she really does not seem too traumatized by it.

well, he's home! i am exhausted. 3 hours of driving. she lets the buns run outside in an enclosed area, so he was a bit muddy b/c there was rain yesterday. so i had to give him a bath. i've never given a bath before and i kinda freaked out, but he seemed okay. i pretty much just put a couple inches of water in the tub and let him hop around. get the mud out of his toes... lol.

i wasn't able to bring Meadow with us. my husband didn't think it was a good idea. it was in the mid 90s, and a looooong drive, so we decided not to stress her with it. they're in separate rooms right now. i put him in her Marchioro cage (cleaned very well) temporarily b/c i want him to be checked by my vet this week before introducing them (seeing as they were outside and all).

i will post some pics tomorrow. he is such a beautiful boy. he loves to be held... and kissed on the nose... and i never knew lops were so expressive with their ears... he's been moving them up and down and back and forth... and if he hears something he will lift his ear towards the sound.

PLUS... he does Edson's "waiting for the bus" routine. Knowltons... you know what i mean! he was even doing it in the bathtub! he just stands there, for like a minute!

Awe!!!!! I love the waiting for the bus!  Lops are so incredible!  Sounds like it went very well! Can't wait to hear how your night goes.  I actually think it's smart not to have taken Meadow.  Congratulations on finally bringing the boy home!!!! What's his name??????????????????? Details tomorrow please.

Knowltons I just love that picture, it would make a great poster.

Oh I LOVE that picture of Edson! that's a perfect name for it.
All of him is very cute, but I always laugh at his little white toes. Adorable.
Thanks.

i think he is very scared today. apparently, he was grooming himself during the night (my hubby was up late), so i don't know if he was nervous, or just didn't like the bath. he's drank some water but i haven't seen any pee. he has pooped some, altho he's been diggind in the litterbox. i gave him some greenleaf lettuce today. i'm going to do that for a week and then introduce something new next week (i'm not positive what kind of veggies he was getting before and what quantities, so i'm kind of starting over with them.)

Michael just came up to me and asked, why are Max's ears down? i told him, some bunnies have up ears, some bunnies have down ears. he seemed satisfied with the answer... lol!

^^ as i was typing this i heard the munchy sound of veggies... i looked over at him and he had a big mouthful of greenleaf. YAY!!!

well... they have met thru the bars. they have been sniffing noses. there's been no sign of aggression as of yet. she keeps hopping back forth along the length of the cage, he keeps hopping and following her every move.

i might have seen a bit of a head binky from Max. but i'm not sure...

Rabbitpam!  That's great!  How can I print this out to frame?  What did you do to get the captions on? Beka gets all the credit for coining that phrase, now we all say this all the time.

Beka - So you did not get a thump last night?  That's good.  You know they groom a lot.  That's just really normal.  So what are you doing with him today?  Are you letting him out of the cage?  Where is the cage? Does Meadow sense a man in the house?

honestly, i sleep like the dead. Mike was up watching tv on the couch pretty late, he didn't say anything about any thumps, just that he was grooming a lot. they seem okay when separated. i put them together in the bathroom and there was a scuffle, but i guess that's to be expected. a lot of chasing back and forth. i moved him into the other half of the double xpen, he seems okay. he's sitting in there eating veggies, exploring around. when i moved him i noticed he had peed in the hay i put in the bottom of the marchioro last night, so i put fresh hay in the litterbox to entice him. (see... Meadow doesn't get hay in her box, so i didn't even think about it. i keep doing everything in comparison to how Mead gets it.) i'm going to keep checking on him. i did put Mead back in her side of the xpen for now. i'll let her out again later. she left some poos next to the marchioro this morning when she was out.

and... Mike went to a car racing show (Pinks... it's on tv) so he TOOK THE CAMERA!!!!  i had to tell him about 50 times not to drop it... but alas, no pics today.
