The adventures of a little rabbit and his humans
oh that's so cute! I don't know whether it's odd...
That's adorable! If it was a serious question, I don't think it's necessarily odd, but I would always check with and defer to the experts (vet or HRS). The big 5: Does Buttons still come to you for treats, still eating, drinking, pooping and binkying? Bunnies like to chew and dig so we created a digging box for Ethel that she loves (http://bunyaboy.blogspot.com/2011/11/ethel-in-her-paper-digging-box-and-out.html).
I think he is very sad about Bella. When a bunny loses their bonded friend, they can become very, very, sad. Sometimes (I don't want to scare you) they can get sick and start doing strange things. Have you thought about getting him a new friend?
Not odd, except perhaps for Buttons--some rabbits do like to tunnel in their hayboxes. In Buttons' case, my guess is that he's feeling less secure without his Bella by his side (she was a big girl, after all) and is looking for other means of protection from possible dangers. Unless he is behaving outside the norm in other ways, though, I wouldn't worry about this.
He is behaving normally otherwise, thankfully... But I'm worried he's lonely too so monitoring the situation closely. Thanks as always dear friends for your helpful words of advice xx
Maybe put a stuffy at the edge of "his" area so he can make friends if he wants. Stuffy friends aren't as good as real friends since they don't groom, but they don't steal your dandelions or mess up your litterbox.
I don't have any bunny wisdom to impart, I'd just like to say that second photo of Buttons is ADORABLE!
Just poke in some treats ....
Good hidey hole Buttons. I like it.
As others have said - it's incredibly endearing! Maybe a bit odd - well Humphrey has never done it...? I wish I could do it sometimes!!I am really sorry to read about Bella. Humphrey's double. Bless her, and bless Buttons (in his button hole in the hay!)Charlottex
oh my goodness!!! CUTE OVERLOAD :) :) :)where are the competitions - get his photo in!!!
not odd my old bun thumper used to do it all the time more so when its cold so don't worry
