My birthday is in 20 days. I *think*I'll be 33. I have had a MAJOR age block all year. I always have to calculate it out. I keep thinking about Eddie a lot. This coming week with be the 2nd anniversary of his passing. I have moments of sadness and I am missing him terribly. Lolli was born sometime this month. I don't remember the exact date, so I think I will celebrate her birthday within the next few days. She will be 5. My baby's gonna be 5. lol

I have started 2 online classes. I haven't been in school for several years and it's a little funny how old habits come back. I pretty much find ANY excuse to not do my homework. LOL I also keep forgetting that I even have homework. I am also hoping that my pain specialist submits and gets approval for my permanent neurostimulator. We're getting rain from hurrican isaac here in Illinois and it is flaring my back up something awful. Sigh. Nothing I'm not used to but I know NOW what it'll be like to have tingling rather than pain so I can't wait for the stimulator to be in.

I have started buying Xmas gifts. I figure it will save a lot of time and expense rather than running round like a mad chook on the day before Xmas which is als two days after I celebrate my 50th birthday. As I intend spending the Friday lunching at a Vineyard and the Saturday night (Dec22) having a family BBQ shopping is not something I want to embark upon in the gap between when the stores will no doubt be organised Bedlam.

Here's the Youtube version

Roberta, Ash is an English Angora and Loki I believe is an angora cross, some reckon cashmere flop but honestly who knows... I love him none the less. I don't groom Ash as often as I should but when I do I give her a good going over, when she gets matts I tend to get my fingers into it and break it up then run a fine toothed comb (or human hair comb) through it to help get rid of it and of course pull out any loose hair from it. Ash will sit for a period of time to let me groom her but Loki doesn't really like it but he's slowly getting there, I tuck his head under my armpit and keep it dark, it worked when I was plucking out fluff last weekend.

Then again I harvest Ash's fluff (and next time Loki's) for spinning purposes so have to keep it pretty clean, but I did cut out a huge matt during the week that was near her back leg so a bit less fluff to spin up (eventually)

Oh this is beyond fingers. I have managed to break it down with the Matt Buster but its still huge. I get his head under my arm but the performance goes something like this.
Me: Grooming Time
Piglet as he heads for cover: NOT FREAKIN LIKELY
Me (as Piglets struggles to escape): C'mon we'll just do a few minutes
Piglet: LET ME GO STRUMPET!!!!!!!!!
Me: But Piglet you need a brush....
Piglet: Honk Snuffle Scratch Snuffle
Me: Sit still and I'll let you go in a second
Piglet: I will shred your T Shirt and mortally Wound your Track Pants Snuffle Nip Nip Nip... Release me slave !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me: Stop being an idiot
Piglet: How long must I suffer this indignity??????????????????????????? Snuffle snuffle gripe gripe
Me: See it's not that bad and I am holding the knots so it doesn't pull
Piglet: I bide my time Slave, I shall be free of your undignified attentions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me: Sit still, Oh Piglet, come back...
Piglet: A Ha, Freedom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have thwarted you lowly slave.... Now fetch me my dinner salad and we shall speak of grooming no more tonight!!!!!!!!!!

That sounds like Loki at times, poor Piglet. I've cut mats in half at times when I couldn't get lower or didn't want it to hit the skin. Good luck with grooming, it's never easy when they won't cooperate

LMAO....Roberta, that is classic! xD I have similar troubles with my bunnies when it's grooming time but none of them are long furred. They're just obstinate. Lolz.....

First days of spring for you...meanwhile autumn is in full swing here and snow is not far off. It was a short summer, Charlie Brown.

I turn 49 this month...then the countdown to the big 5-0 begins! *facepalm*
I'll pass on my birthdays from now on, please. >_<

Sounds like Wooly. He will make a mad dash if he sees me coming to groom him. Then he fusses and pouts the entire time. I have given up on perfection. I brush what I can and if it mats I just snip them off.

Shoo, my daughter turns 2 today!! She tells me every single day that she "wants to set Ollie out" of his cage. He is fast on his way to becoming a full time house bunny! Less than a month till we move to our new warren!!!

 

Also, I've found the funniest site! Anybody ever heard of Disapproving Rabbits? I swear, when you're feeling down or stressed just check out some of those pictures! I think that LoveChaCha should enter some pictures of her little Diva disapproving of things from what I've seen of her on the last picture thread.

Oh Disapproving Rabbits is very well known around these parts. We often see pics here and suggest they submit them to DR.

Cinnabun- I feel like I've been inducted into a special Rabbit Society! I love being a bunny slave!

Also, speaking of D.R. I came home from taking Leni-loo (my daughter) from the pet store where she likes to look at all the animals.... Well... there were a couple of bunnies there and being addicted I couldn't resist stroking a couple of noses.... Plus! I had never seen a mini-rex before and DEF wanted to touch one of those.

Needless to say Ollie is very disapproving. I remember when I first got him thinking that he didn't have many expressions like cats or dogs, but man I was wrong. You can DEFINITELY tell when a rabbit is disgusted with you! Ha! I might even go so far to say that they have MORE expressions than cats and dogs... you just have to know how to see them.

UGGGHHH!!! I am sooooo irritated/upset! Last night when I walked into my bedroom I saw something funny in the bunny condo on the second level. It was red and small so I walked over to it and it was a COCKROACH!! A little baby roach in MY BUNNY CONDO!!! Never had roaches in my room before so it was like what the heck! We do have roaches and we are trying to control them but for some reason one decided to go in my bunny condo!! =( I killed it but I'm thinking I may need to set traps or something in my room for the roaches. I just don't know where I'd put them out of reach from my bunnies. It was sickening and upsetting. I don't know what to do.

THEN this morning I went into my parents room to clean the cat boxes and I saw another small roach in the bathtub!! AND a pincher bug was under the cat litter container so I was like ugh...more bugs! I feel like we will never get this bug problem solved. We need an exterminator but my dad won't pay for it. =( I would really love our house like bombed or something so it will be clear of all bugs.

I just needed to get that off my chest.

Amy have you tried Dictomas Earth around the house? It's supposed to help with bugs.

I haven't tried that but maybe I should look into it? We are probably going to spray the inside of the house (not near the bunnies) so hopefully that will help!

I was raised a city girl and totally hate bugs in a house. They don't belong in a living area. So I'm crazy paranoid about them and spray and treat as much as I can. We spray for bugs after we mow the lawn and after a rain. We have tried Dictomas Earth and a spray from Wal-Mart. The combination seems to work. I hope you find a way to control the bugs. =]

Make absolutely sure that none of your rabbits gets near the diatomaceous earth if you go that route, it isn't good for bunny tummies

Sorry, I thought I put outside in one of my statements. I don't spray bug spray inside my house. Just to be safe that animals aren't hurt. If you keep up with spraying outside they shouldn't come in. =]
