Haha! The white tail scares me so much! My dad lives in New Zealand and it is the only spider there that can hurt you.

I agree Isabella, Hate the things. Had hair down to my waist a few years ago and was towelling off after a shower and thought a lock of hair had hook on my shoulder so I tossed my head and this enormous white tail fell onto the bathroom floor with a loud plop. I had a broken ceiling vent I was in the process of repairing and it must have come though that and dropped into the towel. It was fat brown and leathery. I grabbed the first aerosol can I could find and gave it the hairspray treatment so the bloody thing got all pissy and charged me. Then I found a shoe !!!!!! Guess who won that stand off.

Oh my goodness!!! Haha that's so scary! I think I would have fainted if a spider ran at me . My dad lived in Aus when he was younger in the middle of nowhere and he told me a story once about the lady he was staying with. She went to the toilet and didn't check under the seat and got bitten and the closest neighbour was like an hour away I think and she had to get a helicopter to hospital and nearly died!!! Spiders are so scary haha.

Good luck FF!!!

FF  i hope it works out for you! Kill shelters are no cool, gives you a sense of urgency to save that poor bunny's life. I really hope it's a good fit.

LBJ sorry but I think that's a little crazy for some tile!!  Unless it's in a big city and you can plan on making a romantic weekend out of it. Can you use that tile as an accent maybe? I remember when my parents were remodeling their house. Countless childhood hours WASTED sitting in a paint store or flooring store. Sigh. So many cartoons I could have watched

ChaCha, our cats like to chase lizards up the screen on the porch. They'll sit by the door crying until I let them out and then ZOOM, they're at the top, looking down like "where'd that pesky lizard get to?"

Nothing wrong with that, Toady. I picked up Finn exactly one week after Tofu died. Didn't give me too much time for grieving, but I missed having a bunny pal around.

I took Finn for his neuter yesterday to a very reputable vet. I LOVE the guy! he's done neuters on my rats, operated on my hedgehog, knows his stuff.... or so I thought. I asked him to check Finn's anal glands and clean them if needed. He gave me a weird look and told me he didn't think rabbits have anal glands. I said they did and they could get clogged so if he could check them that'd be great. I don't know if he did, I've been trying to let Finn rest but I thought that was weird he didn't know a common thing about rabbits!  At least he's good at chopping off.... well... you know. Also he didn't charge me for the check up before hand.

On another Finn note he FINALLY peed in his litter box in his pen. I put a folded towel on one side and a bed on the other so he had no choice. yay! now if only I could get him to poop in it we'd be well on our way to a house rabbit.

So I think it's safe to officially say that....

MY BOYS ARE BONDED

woot woot! They have spent 3 nights and 4 days together in the pen now, with no fighting and they are even cuddling and licking each other. They like to pretend that they aren't lovers, but I catch them snuggling whenever I pop my head into the rabbit room

For some reason Nate's litter habits have improved....? baha he's been really hit or miss with peeing in the box since his neuter, but there's been no pee outside the boxes and barely any poops. So weird, not that I'm complaing though!

I am looking forward to the weekend of the 20th. Rift, an MMO I play, is having an event that weekend with Extra Life, to benefit childrens hospitals. It's a weekend of gaming, and the official Extra Life event is a full 24 hours of non stop gaming for the kids. Will be fun

Roberta, Zoologist - No need to worry, we got it all figured out. My husband called this place that is 7 hours away. They are going to ship it to us. They have the tile on closeout there, it is only $1.88 a square foot. Add the shipping on and it isn't too bad (like $2.50 a square foot). Compare that to the $10 a square foot this store where we live was trying to sell it to us for!

Oh my gosh Roberta! I don't know how you do it. I'm deathly afraid of spiders. I was freaking out as I was reading your post. That would flip me out. We have brown recluses and banana spiders where I live. I went walking in a friend's backyard and there was a forest of banana spiders. Their webbs were at least 7 feet tall and 6 feet wide. It was insane.

FF I'm glad you guys got Bunjiman a friend! =]

Zoologist I bet Finn is doing well. Healing vibes to him. =]

Malp I'm so glad that your boys are bonded!

Monkeybun it makes me giggle to say that you're taking the weekend off for Rift. I've been playing Guild Wars to keep me occupied until Halo 4 comes out. =p You better believe I'm going to the midnight release for the game. xD

Skippers mama, you're silly! Those banana spiders are harmless. I love them! I would never touch one (ICK!) but they are beautiful. They're really called golden orb weavers if you wanna look up stuff about them.

Svandis -- I'm so happy for you! It's so heart-warming when something happens (little or big) and it feels like our buns are bonding with us more. SUCH an incredible feeling! <3

Isabella -- that's horrifying. I'm deathly terrified of spiders. Well, okay...insects in general! LOL. I probably would've screamed...and then cried...and then screamed again... and then given the bunny the glass to catch him with so I could hide in the bunny condo...

FF -- I'm so excited for you.. Again! Even if the fit isn't perfect, you should be happy knowing you will be saving this little girls life either way! I hope her and Bunjamin bond well! And fall instantly in bunny LOVE! <3 I'll be keeping my fingers crossed and sending bonding vibes your way!

Roberta -- I think that whole paragraph of spiders made me have a nervous breakdown. Oh. MY. God. I would seriously be institutionalized if I ever lived in Australia... Omg. And I've always wanted to visit there so bad. I would literally DIE if I stepped on a spider and a bunch of babies just started pouring out of their stomach. UGH. I feel like I need to go take a shower. Because I can feel them crawling all over me... BAHHH.

ChaCha -- my boyfriend owns the condo... UGH. Sooo no new place for us for AT LEAST 3 more years (since usually 5 years is how long you need to stay with a mortgage on a place for it to be worthwhile according to the BF).

Toady -- New buns are always a joy and make me crazy EXCITED... even when they're not mine. I'm happy that you're thinking about it -- they're such wonderful furry family members!

Malp -- CONGRATS, that is GREAT news!!!!!! It's always so rewarding when you see them and how happy they are together! So happy for your buns!

Roberta - Ok...I didn't know that...and neither did the parents....from now on, no squishing spiders. I don't want babies everywhere....eughhh! Icky! Crickets and daddy long legs are ok though. Cup your hands over a cricket and take it outside, and grab a daddy long legs the same way, or by a leg! Haha! Hate spiders though....dad usually has to do those. Though ill catch them in a glass or mortine spray em. Cockroaches can survive nuclear attacks, so what the heck is in a can of mortine? (It will kill cockroaches...)

Sorry, I wasn't very clear, Mortine is a bug spray, it'll kill all sorts of spiders and insects and even a small snake. What the heck is in it if I will kill cockroaches! O.o

bunnygirl - Not sure what is in that, but most insecticides work by inactivating certain enzymes in the insect's body. Some involve neurotransmission, so if that is messed up then the insect will die. Cockroaches do, however, have a higher resistance to nuclear radiation. A lethal dose for them is about 15 times greater than that of humans. Nuclear radiation mostly affects cells that are growing and dividing.

LBJ - Thats Great about the tiles, you must be very relieved and satisfied now... You should send pics of the completed bathroom.
Re: Spiders - Thankfully the fat exploding kind are completely harmless and rarely come indoors. I found out the hard way and my flat mate at the time didn't not shout his warning fast enough. The foot came down and thousands of timy garden spiders smaller than poppy seeds went everywhere. Most of them made it outside I think before I drenched the carpet in bug spray. I felt rather guilty afterward I should have just lifted it on same paper and flicked it out the door.
Bunnygirl - whilst we do have some nasty biteys down here most of them are timid or in places where you are unlikely to encounter them. Snakes and spiders are a risk but fore warned is fore armed and having some knowledge will most likely mean you will never be in harms way.
Oh we also have some spectacular raptors - hawks, falcons and eagles, especially our end of Perth, so outdoor playtime should be fully supervised and preferrably some where not overly visible from the air. They are beautiful birds though and you will soon come to know when they are about and their favourite times of day. A few people have told me over the years that their free range backyard rabbit had mysterioulsy disappeared from a secure yard. Not so much a mystery really.
