Rabbit Report - Bun's First Video

Bun's first day at Castle Completely

For those of you following the saga of Bun, our long eared furry family member, here's the latest. As you remember, we found him, or actually, he came to us, as a very small baby bunny with a badly injured left eye. He was not in very good shape, and even after "doctoring" him up a bit, I really didn't expect he'd make it through the night. To our surprise, he did survive, and has now fully healed up and appears not the worse for the injury.

Bun, roughly five weeks later. Look at the size of those ears and feet! Gonna be a BIG bunny....

When we first got him, he was so small he fit in the palm of my hand, but now he's somewhere between two and a half and three pounds! It's hard to get a rabbit to stand still on a scale to weight him. He's (or she, we still don't know for sure) is eating like a horse, inhaling alfalfa, fresh veggies and rabbit mix at an amazing rate. Rolled oats are a special delicacy.

I've been letting Bun run around in our bathroom to get exercise and to become more familiar with being loose in the house. He's litter box trained (mostly!) so we may soon be able to let him roam the house a bit, under close supervision, of course.

Last night, while getting some exercise in the bathroom, Bun decided that the piece of plastic that had held replacement batteries for my camera would make a good toy. I've never seen a rabbit play with a toy like this before, and it was fun to watch how much fun he was having.

No doubt about it, rabbits are way more entertaining than television.....
