Finally some updates…

April 10, 2009

Sorry about my silence… It’s been pretty busy around here, and I haven’t been able to do much with the bunnies. That always seems to be my excuse, doesn’t it? *sigh*

Well anyway…

For a while, we couldn’t get Isis out of her hutch. She’s on the bottom story of Sugar’s hutch, so we can’t reach in from the top. Every time we put our hands in or something, she would lunge and growl. Well, finally when we were cleaning out hutches, we  removed everything from the top story (drop pan included) and reached down to get her. Once I was holding her and she was out of her cage, she was perfectly fine and content. I’m not sure what that was about, but I figure that Sugar’s smell triggered cage aggresiveness. She’s back in her small hutch and it seems to be doing wonders to her personality. All her cage aggresiveness has *mostly* gone away, and she’s even molting (have no idea what that’s about, maybe stress from switching cages again) ! My three friends and I were able to get about two handfuls of hair from her. We got her out, we were just petting her, when all off a sudden, “POOF” Magic Molting Fairy came to visit…

 

And while Isis is going back to normal, Sugar… Not so much.

After we moved Isis out of the bottom story, Sugar is going back to her lunging, aggressive self. I think it was when we were cleaning the cages, I haven’t had enough time to handle her everyday, and when we got her out it spooked her a little to all of a sudden be out of her cage. So when I reached into her hutch to give her food, she lunged and attacked the food like she did a month ago. And she was doing so well too… I hope this is a temporary thing.

 

Speckles is still her old silent self…  A little too silent for my liking. I really hope she comes around before this summer. I really want Speckles to be comfortable in her enviornment before I give her to my cousin. She’s a very shy girl. Man, it’s going to be really hard to give Speckles to my cousin. It’s going to be weird walking around and not see her, it’s like one of those things where you can’t imagine not having someone/something in your life. I really hope she’s happy at my cousin’s, the only reason why I’m doing this is because I feel like she’s not getting enough attention and love. I don’t want her to have to go through a bad life though.
Hm… Toffee… Let’s see…

His abscess is fully away! I’ve been monitering, and he hasn’t been chewing at his fur, the fur is fully covering his neck, and there’s no bump. 🙂 But I’m pretty sure he’s not too happy with me. I accidentally cut his quick the other day… :-/ I feel bad about it too, because I did the little “test” before. Where you squeeze twice to see if they flinch, and if they don’t, then you’re safe to go? Well, he didn’t flinch, he only flinched when I actually cut… He didn’t bleed a lot, and it stopped after a few seconds, which is good. I was frantically flitting about trying to see what I could do. He got lucky and was actually in my room for about an hour and a half. All the bunnies envied him that night. xD

 

So that’s basically all I’ve got to say! Except….

Hans at Furrybutts (www.furrybutts.wordpress.com) has malloclussion (as I’ve mentioned before) but has developed an abscess because of it on his cheek. He is undergoing surgery soon to get his incisors removed. Please pray and hope that Hans has an awesome recovery and that the abscess will go away!

Bunspace again…

January 3, 2009

Okay,  I said, join bunspace it’s fun? Don’t even bother…  (I vented on facebook… hehe)

OK. I’m thinking about bunspace… They typed my email in google (the admin) and then found my website. I find this very stalker-ish. (OH yes, I got banned because I quoted other breeders. Nice.) They think that all breeders are horrible horrible people. They obviously don’t know me. They told me that I handle my rabbits five minutes a day ( I said at LEAST, I usually 15 minutes to HANDLE, which includes running around the run, and then picking up the rabbit multiple times working on social skills.) And then said I only played with them 30 minutes a week. (30 minutes? I said 30 minutes – 1 hour, and that’s just in my room.) Do they seriously think that? When I’m not reading, or on the computer, I’m usually out with the bunnies, cleaning the litter boxes, taking pictures, and handling and letting them out in the run. They have no opinion to say what they don’t know. They obviously didn’t look further down onto my website, where there are these quotes (They also didn’t take into consideration that I haven’t bred a rabbit in my life yet.) :

Hi, my name is Hannah. I am a 4-H youth breeder. I have had animals all my life, and love them dearly. Everyday, I strive to keep my rabbits happy and healthy. I don’t consider my rabbits “breeders”, I consider my rabbits pets.

n my spare time I like to:

Sing

Cuddle with my bunnies, dogs, and cats

Go to the beach

Talk to my friends

Play with my sisters

Oh yes, of course, I’m the big bad breeder who cuddles with my “products”, and they also stated that I breed to make money, and all the money I get is going to go back to the bunnies, food etc…
hmph.. stereotypes…

Longer post tomorrow or the day after.

Bunnies blog changed – Pictures – Didn’t think it possible.

December 31, 2008

Okay, as you may have noticed, the blog changed! Freewebs was getting on my nerves so badly I couldn’t TAKE IT ANYMORE. I lost it . haha, so the new domain is http://www.minipawsbunnies.wordpress.com It’s would have been minipawsrabbitry, but I already made that a while ago and it says posted by my regular blog so it was confusing. 🙂

Didn’t think it was possible, but she did it. SUGAR DID IT! On a scale of 1 – 10, Toffee is an 7 on my spazzometer. (Spazzometer is a meter measuring how much of a spazz the rabbit is) BUT, Sugar surpassed his record, the new record is… *drumroll* Sugar with an 8! *crowd gasps* Sugar kicks and kicks, and for the first time ever, she grunted at me. I was shocked. So I’m working with her more often, I have tons of scratches on my hands from working with her tonight, it stings too. I have some pictures from how angry she is at me when I pick her up… hehe…

PICTURES! wee hee!

I took a whole lot of Sugar pictures tonight while I was out with the bunnies
