Buttons and Skittles haven't been outside for a couple of weeks now, due to it being either too hot, or the human being away. The grass has grown really really long in the mean time. Clearly they should be allowed to go out there more often to keep it short for us!
We're not sure how, but we noticed this week that Skittles toes are inflamed. The lovely vet (who he sat still for as if he was the best behaved bunny in the world, right after we said... he's really grumpy and won't let us pick him up) gave him a course of antibiotics.
He hates being picked up (by us) so much that the only way we found to get hold of him was wrapping him in a towel to stop him kicking us. The husband thought this looked unbelievably cute and ran to get the camera... personally I think that's a look of anger or terror. I'm not sure why, after all, he'd already taken the medicine at this point, and seemed quite happy licking it off his chin and whiskers! Perhaps it was the fear of knowing I would post this photo on the blog and therefore embarress this big bad bunny in public!
Buttons and Skittles had a lot of fun while the human was away. The husband let them run wild, sit on the sofas, chew more furniture and run up and down the stairs everyday! However, the human gives the best head rubs, so they are glad to have her back!
The human has deserted us for 10 whole days to go on a work trip to a far away place called Rio. We hope she realises that 10 days is a very very long time for a little bunny, and we will try not to forget her in that time, but it would help if she brings us back lots of treats. Until she returns, here is a geeky little bit of fun to pass the time: Buttons' jigsaw http://www.jigzone.com/puzzles/E714C5DD299?sit=1273448798
Skittles and Button's don't like it when I won't let them go in the living room to play. To be fair to me, these two are pretty spoilt bunnies, and spend most of the time when we are home springing across the furniture in the living room. AND when we are out at work they are left alone in a pretty big kitchen! Anyway, here is Skittles being grumpy at me when i try to stop him leaving the kitchen... watch as I try to stroke his head and he tries to push my hand away in a sulk!
