Ever since we put up our (fake) Christmas tree, my bunny Stella has been flipping a lot more. She sits under the tree on our fleece tree skirt and is the most relaxed I have ever seen her. She'll stretch out as a SuperBun (which she hardly ever does) or mega flop to the side with her chin on the floor.

Should I be worried about this sudden behavior or do you think she is just ultra happy?

She probably likes it under there. A small tree or shrub would serve as shelter in the wild. She might just feel safe and comfortable there out of instinct.

Yes, I too thinks she feels super comfortable under the tree. As long as there are no cords and decorations near her that she can eat, it really is rather a perfect spot for a bunny. It probably speaks to her rabbit instincts, as LBJ says.

She must look extremely cute there too =)

Another Christmas Tree bun! My Olivia LOVES our Christmas. She spends most of her out-time loafed under neath it. Either that or shes busy chinning all the branches.

Awwww! Must look adorable! It seems as if she just likes being under the tree. Super relaxed. My bunny flops so hard sometimes under the tree I hear a huge thump. She likes Christmas too She also ripped one of the presents open! Lol Had to guard off the presents from her until Christmas. She can go tear happy then.

Mine have been doing it too. They seem to love the tree, enough that I am contemplating keeping it up year round.
BUNNY RULE #1- Everything in the house belongs to the bunnies. Including the humans. BUNNY RULE #2- If bunnies choose to lavish their humans with affection by sitting upon their lap, then the human must stop whatever they are doing to pet said bunny. Otherwise there shall be consequences in the form of nips. BUNNY RULE #3- If the humans have something in their hand, the bunnies must inspect it no matter what. BUNNY RULE #4- Bunnies must accompany humans to the farmers market, to inspect the produce, and approve it before the humans bring it home.

It must be the security they feel under the tree, along with the comfort from the tree skirt, because our buns love it under the tree, too.
