Ugh, I feel so bad right now... the condo under ours has been complaining of leaks from our bathroom into theirs every time we take a shower... So I got 30-minute notice that they were coming to investigate in our bathroom... Considering the big bunny condo, UGH. I had to put all 3 buns in one cage and put them in our bedroom and so now they're all huddled in the litter box in there shaking. I feel so bad... I had to take their whole condo down and bring it into our bedroom to but definitely didn't have the time to put it all back together and them back in there. I feel so bad for my babies right now -- they probably hate me. Last time the maintenance people came I at least had lots of time to plan to make the move smooth for the buns. Not this time. It was bam, boom... them in their cage and scared as I try crazily to clean all the bunny stuff around the house up.

Now I'm just waiting for them to come (and hopefully be done) so I can let the buns back out so they can stop freaking out. My poor bun babies. I feel like such a big mean momma right now. Ugh.

Ugh TL! The Pens? I can't STAND Sidney Crosby. His total arrogant attitude grates on my nerves. I grew up in NorCal so naturally I am a huge Sharks fan. =D Your poor babies! I feel so bad for you guys. That totally sucks. I hope the leak gets taken of so this doesn't happen again.

ARGHHHHHH....   I'm going insane waiting for them to come!  They said 30 minutes and now it's been 2 hours since they said they would be here.... Can't get a break with these guys.  Went down to the office to see when they were going to come and of course, waited 15 minutes and couldn't find anyone to talk to... so now I'm back to waiting and watching Real Housewives of New Jersey.

 

I swear -- I'm going insane.  Feel SOOO mean to my buns!  I keep sneaking over and peeking in their little cage and offering them craisins.  They're going to be tubby buns by the time the maintenance comes and goes!  Ugh -- my poor little babies.

Yeah... I could never live somewhere where I couldn't have my bunnies be out in their own areas. Especially if I owned the place. Screw that!

I told my boyfriend he was dumb for getting a place where you're not allowed animals! Especially when you buy and he loves dogs! But what you gonna do.... except hide my babies. I think he just may have not thought about it much then -- being in college and not really thinking about the future and what not. But... in another sense, if we were allowed animals we would've probably have ended up with a dog and not our baby bunnies (since we only started looking into them because we needed an animal that could be hidden).

They STILL haven't come... this is getting really frustrating. I got up at 8:30 and they said they would come in a half hour, at 9.... and it's now 1:45....I even had to call into work so I could stay home with the buns and I planned on getting some stuff done since I called off but I haven't been able to do much of anything now while waiting for them. I called 2 hours ago and they said he should be around soon... 2 hours ago! Argh!

tanlover, I'm sorry for your babies! But don't worry, they'll forgive you eventually, you might have to bribe them though...

 

I hate it when people like that don't show up on time. A few months ago we hired a contractor to do some work on one of our trees, not only did they not show up, but we never heard from them again. Waited for them all day, of course.

Of course! Maintenance people seem to be the WORST with time -- your case really is the worse!

They FINALLY came and by the time I got my buns out ... boy were they NOT happy. Mainly my girl. I had put a sheet halfway over the cage with the back open when the guy came just in case they had to venture into the bedroom... And by the time I came back in they had half the sheet inside the cage! LOLOLOL.

But boy, when I let my girl out... I got more than a few thumps or two. She practically thumped her whole way back out to the dining room (where their play area is) and then thumped when I was putting her condo back up (I guess I wasn't going fast enough for her liking) and then she thumped AGAIN when I took her towel and moved it over 2 inches!

A few big juicy craisins seemed to cure her mood though! Yaaaaaay. The buns LOVE me again!

I feel I had sort of a breakthrough with Bosse today. Been sitting on the ground petting him for about two straight hours now haha! I sat down with him to have some one on one time with him, and I started petting him as usual. He lay down and he seemed to relax in a way he hasn't relaxed while being pet before. After a while he got up, groomed for a bit (ew, hoomin smell), hopped about for a bit, then came back to me and bonked my arm. I first thought he wanted to play, but he then started licking me, and then started bonking me with his nose again, and almost nipped me (!). That is when i realized that he was litterally demanding more pets and got mad I was taking so long! Before he has only happily recieved pets, he has never actually activly demanded them. Made me so happy. After a while he actually flopped out besides me while i pet him! Heart = melted.

Tanlover - haha poor little buns! I'm sure they'll forgive you
Bosse actually thumped at my cooking today, three or four times! I don't think he likes the sizzling sound from the frying pan, but he's been okay with it before I just gave him a little piece of a banana to distract him, worked like a charm

Svandis that is the best thing ever!!! Belle has just started coming up to me for pets over the past week and now every night she comes up and snuggles into my side while I lie and watch things on my lap top. As long as I'm giving her pets she'll lie there for hours !

I recently discovered something that Belle is scared of! I can't be bothered typing the whole ordeal up, so I'll just C+P what I put on facebook !

"Belle was thumping her foot while playing in my room which means she's either frightened or pissed off. I looked around a bit, didn't see anything that would be causing her to do it so I went back to browsing once she had ran into her pen. Two minutes later something caught my eye. The biggest spider I have seen in a very long time, if not ever. Not only was it pretty much the size of a glass, it was on my clothes and therefor un-glassable. Took about five minutes (half an hour in my petrified mind) of it burying deeper into my clothes before it decided to make a surprise appearance from the bottom of the pile and run - faster than Usain Bolt - for Belle's pen. After about five attempts of getting it under the glass (whilst I frantically leaped from foot to foot) I finally caught the little eight-legged demon and it is now sitting at the far side of my room under a glass. I'm too frightened to lift it away so it'll need to be my new room mate until tomorrow night. Why do I have to be so scared of spiders? "

That was two nights ago and my mum only just came up and took him away tonight!!! I feel bad for the little guy though - he must of been hungry under there and the space wasn't great either. I feel guilty for leaving him but I was just too scared to deal with him !

Edit: To all of you Aussies out there you would have been cracking up at me.  Your spiders are 100 times bigger and there isn't a single spider in the UK that can hurt you haha!  I saw a dead huntsman while I was in Aus and it was definitely about 5 times the size if not more, so yeah... it was dead though.  Also - I named him Simon.

IsabellaRobyn - Aww, that sound soo cozy. It's times like these I wish I had Bosse in my room. He is free range, but he won't walk on the hardwood floor, so he can't get to my room I've been planning on getting those long mats and make a path for him to my room! I'd love for him to come and lay in bed with me

Haha, sounds like you have your own personal spider detector!

Okay so A LOT is going on right now. But I'm pretty sure we're coming home with a new bun tomorrow. We're going to the humane society to see her early tomorrow before my class. We set up everything we need at home just in case. She's at a shelter that kills unwanted rabbits if they aren't adopted. The rescue we are working with suggested I look there. I had no plan on looking today since Melvin just left but my curiosity got the best of me. And now that I know she's there and in danger of being put down I can't stop thinking about it. I haven't actually seen her though. Just her pet finder listing. She's approx. 1 year old (idk if they're right about this). Spayed. They described her as a Himalayan/dwarf mix. She's about the right size, gender, and age that we preferred so that's why we chose her over the 4 boys they have too. If it doesn't work out, the rescue I work with is going to help us re-home her while we foster. I'm not sure if I'll get attached. Probably though. We do hope she will bond with Bunjamin. She is also being housed in separate side of house in a condo we built for the new perpective bun. She'll also receive a vet check from our vet before we even introduce her to Bunjamin. I'm so nervous. I'm horrible at making big decisions like this but me and Andy both fear for her being at that shelter. (I fear for the other buns but it is better than them being released into the wild). And Andy seems pretty sure.

And Svandis, you'll always remember that moment too

OMG, I hate my husband right now. We have spent the last few weeks looking at tile. It is getting ridiculous. Anyway, he picked out the most beautiful tile for the floor (bathroom). It is a little pricey, but with such a small space it isn't a big deal (~ $160 and he will put the tile in himself). Fine fine. Well, we can't find tile for the shower to go with it. I was wanting to mix and match and not be too matchy matchy. After many hours and countless samples, he found a tile that coordinates so nicely and it is BEAUTIFUL! OMG, this tile is gorgeous. Problem is, it would cost about $800 to do the shower in it. =O I just about fainted. We don't have that kind of money to invest in the shower! I am so tired of looking and after seeing this wonderful tile, nothing else appears to be a satisfactory equivalent at a cheaper price. **sigh

Isabella! Haha! I get rid of crickets and spiders and daddy long legs and all these weird creepy crawly insects, and I've been in Australia for 8 months. We moved here from England, my parents and brother. I'm a minor, so I can't reveal my age, but I'm old enough to be on here and young enough to have a paper route. I used to be scared stiff of spiders, but they're ok now. Just squish em or glass em. No issues! Haha! They can't hurt you! I'm going to have to deal with a whole lot more having a bun in my room though! x

Okay, he found the tile somewhere and it is WAY cheaper. It is a 7 hour drive though, one way. Is that crazy?

Depends what it is going to cost in fuel really... Has he checked to see if the place that has it doesn't have an outlet or affiliate closer to your area ?

Oh there are definitely some here that can hurt you, it's just knowing what they look like and making sure that the environment is unattractive. Summer is White Tail Spider season, they are the Australian equivalent of the brown recluse spider and set up a very nasty flesh eating condition in animals and humans. However, they are nomadic and live primarily outside. This being said they also find piles of clothing and clutter attractive (which is another reason I moved my buns to the front of the house and put their things up on shelves) and quite a few people have been bitten picking up things left too long on the floor or putting on shoes that haven't checked. A friends daughter was bitten on the bum last year, always leaving her clothes on the floor, pulled some shorts off the pile and put them on without checking and the WTS sank in the fangs. Needless to say Marg's daughter no longer leaves who clothes on the floor and is now almost anal about hanging things up and putting things away.
White tails are brown and leathery, they have a bulbous rear end with a sort of tuft and a tiny white mark that is often not visible. They do not spin webs and travel by walking about and hunting smaller insects and other spiders, they usually stake out piles of old leaves and garden refuse so its always wise to wear gloves if pulling weeds in Summer. When they lay eggs they fix them to a wall of surface with a gauzy web like silk. They are not prolific but it is a good idea to watch for them. The big black ugly spiders you will see soon are completely harmless, they are the black house spider and unfortunately for them they are one of the favourite foods of the White Tail and the Red Back, and the Red Back is considered tasty by the Daddy Long Legs. Red Backs pack a nasty bite but generally it is not fatal unless they bite a very small child or someone who is already weakened by illness. The only really bad thing about the black house spider is they do not handle the really hot temps late in Summer and tend to fall randomly from their lofty webs without warning. Oh, an also not harmless but very likely to freak someone out are the big fat garden spiders. Spindly bodies, often coffee and white markings with big round abdomens, DON"T STEP ON THEM if they are inside. They carry their live young in their stomachs and stomping on them causes an explosion of baby spiders that stampede in all directions away from the body of their Mother.
If bitten by a WTS or a Red Back seek immediate medical attention, the WTS bite will be treated with very strong antibiotics, the sooner you start them the better and the RBS with an antivenom, you will be very sick for several weeks but you won't die. Snakes are the other thing to watch for during Summer. Where we are it is Dugites and Tiger Snakes. Both are highly venomous. Hopefully I haven't terrified you and I can assure you snakes are usually more scared of us than we are of them. Do some research, know what types of places they like to sleep and move about in. The more you know about them the less likely your are to have an unfortunate encounter.

OMG Tanlover, that sucks!

That also happened to my dad and I. We live on the 3rd floor of an apartment and apparently my bathroom tub was leaking water into the downstairs apartment!

When is your lease up? I live in a pet friendly apartment complex and the landlord thinks that Chacha is 'a caged animal' which is bull, hahahah! However, both my dad and I know that we will not be getting the deposit back. It comes with having a bunny! I warned the Mister of that when we get our own place and he is fine with it, lol.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this, but a few weeks ago, I found a squirrel attached to the sun room screen, trying to find its way into the apartment! The maintenance people came and replaced the screen a day later. Well, guess what? The squirrel tried to get into the apartment again - via the same screen window! GUHDLJSLKDFJSLDK!!!!!! o_O Good thing that it is getting cold here and I do not leave the windows open anymore.

I just spent 3 hours working on my Accounting project. I think I have a little of it left.. I hope T____T My brain hurts so much!

Is it bad that I'm thinking of getting another bunny? I stupidly looked at websites and saw a gorgeous broken black mini lop with stunning blue eyes, sadly (for me) he already found a home. I think I dove in the deep end with an angora as a first rabbit so going back to a short haired bunny... for now at least.

Hi Toady,
No not bad or strange....Missing Loki would make it all the more likely that your thoughts would turm to another rescue bun to honour him.
If you feel the time is right then I say go for it.
When my old ginger (x)tom cat passed away many years ago now I honoured him a few weeks later by adopting Bilbo from a cat shelter, I know Toffee would have liked that and Bilbo has since been wonderful, cuddling and doting on all new additions as they came as if they were his own (even the buns)
