When petting my Lilly if I pet her on the side of her butt/legs idk? she will move her butt to that side!!!  I love switching sides petting her, he butt keeps moving back and forth! haha.

Also when she knows she is being bad or in trouble, when I look at her sternly or in dislike at her actions she looks at me and flops down.  Now that is TOO CUTE to yell at!

My bedroom is off my sunken living room so you have to go up two steps off the hallway. Sophie knows that she is not allowed in the bedroom. I will stand at one end of the hall and watch her standing on the bottom step and I will say "Sophie, no" and she will turn her head back at me, shake her bottom back and forth, dart under my bed, dart back down the stairs and flop over in her house after running a zoom or two around the living room. It's as if to say "I know I am not supposed to go in there, but I want to, I can, I did and now I am happy". SO FRICKEN CUTE!!!!

well - there's a baby gate that Viktor used to squeeze through when he was still really little. he can't fit through it anymore - but EVERY day without fail he runs over and tries to get through. when he discovers he hasn't magically shrunk overnight - he scampers off and does this funny leap / wriggle. it cracks us up every time.

haha gravehearted!!! Lilly does the same to her cage bars (even though the cage is NEVER shut!!?) when she was a baby we kept her in there till she was litter trained but she was so little she just walked right through the bars... now she still sticks her head (or tries to.. only her nose fits) to get out (even though like I said she could just walk out the door!)! haha. silly buns.. never realizing they grow up!!

Cutest thing?  Wow, there must be dozens

- any bun washing their face with their front paws.  It's just not fair
- DJ standing on his hind legs trying to nip a piece of the christmas tree
- The way that a bonded pair can lay side by side like a totally happy puddle of fur
- When they try to jump up on something, miss and fall, and then take a quick look around to see that nobody actually saw them fall
- The way that they press their little noses through the wires of the pen when you come home and they are saying "Hi!'

Raimundo my foster bunny has actually come up with the cutest thing of all my bunnies...when he gets let out of his pen after a particularly long time of being in it, he gets very excited and runs into the bathroom, the furthest corner of my house.  After a few minutes of preparation, he comes leaping and binkying, makes a bee line right across my living room floor, and then sits on his butt to slide all the way across the tile kitchen floor!! It looks just like the elephants on ice in Fantasia Most of the time he over estimates his distance as well and ends up sliding bum first into the dishwasher, the kitchen table, or anything else in his way...

My bunny Hugo is naughty, but he always gets away with it when he does this in front of Daddy!
We call it a "T-rex".  
"Look, Daddy, I'm T-rexing!  Don't be mad at me!"

Also, when we can get him to walk on his hind legs.  I dont' have a picture of that, though....

Pepper gets SOOOOOO excited about her pellets  - she barrels into the kitchen and runs around her cage, leaping up to all the shelves and back down again.  Sometimes she is so busy being excited that she completely misses the part where I actually put the pellets in her bowl, so she'll still be running around and I'll have to wave my hand to get her attention and them point at the bowl before she realizes that they are actually there.

I love it when she grooms herself. There's just something about little bunny lips that I love!

Such cute stories!!!  EEEEEEE!!! Cute!!!  

Bailey is a FlopRnot..  When she' s relaxed she hangs them down, but when she gets upset about something she can stick 'em up.   What talent!

he he Mable does this too!! when she's chilling in her cage, she sometimes wedges herself in between the cage and her litter tray (quite a small gap) and sticks just on of her ears up listening to whats going on.  also when she sits up a yawns her ears go up and up and up - so cute x

Booboo does the same as GH's bunny - with the stair gate, even though the days of her fitting through are LONG gone, she does this every day, and when she realises that she CANNOT fit through she just sits there on her back feet with her front feet resting on the gate - like its either going to magically widen or i'll come and open it.

I also agree that bunnies washing their faces with their little furry feet is the cutest thing to watch x

Binky, when Lilly gets upset she puts her ears up too!! Me and my dh always say "Lilly relax put your ears down!" and then we push them down. haha! Oh we are evil. She puts them all the way back when she gets really mad too, like the regular eared bunnies do.. we just push them back forward. No mad bunny here! Lol.

I hadn't posted in this thread yet because I couldn't decide on the absolute cutest thing that Sable does .. then he did it!!  And it wasn't anything he had done previously:

I was working on a crochet project, sitting on the couch with a printout of the pattern beside me.  Sable came up and started chewing on the page then all of a sudden he grabbed the corner of the page and bolted with the papers (3 pages stapled together) trailing behind him.  He ran to the other end of the couch and dropped the papers on the floor!!  I started laughing so hard he didn't know what to do.  He's always trying to get at the ball of yarn or thread, and sometimes he chews on the pattern page, but he never just stole it like that before.

He repeated the performance the other day but instead of just dropping the papers on the floor (they were obviously too easy for me to retrieve), he ran right down to the floor with them still in his mouth and left them a distance from the couch.  It's like he's playing a game with me.

This might sound a little cruel but it was amazing and it only happened once....

For some reason I kind of picked fujoe up by his ears, I was petting him, and he loves it when you tug on his ears. So I continued to tug till he was on his hind legs.. and then he started to lick his face!!! It was amazing! It was like... oh! thanks for holding me up! i can do this without balancing! I just stared for like 5 seconds and put him down, as he continued to groom himself. I binkied around the living room for a while.

Another time he had done a bunny flop and was sleeping. I went over to look at hime (he doesn't do this often, so it's a treat for me). And he was dreaming! His little lips were quivering and his little paws were moving...and he was chomping down. It was so cute! He was probably dreaming of some giant carrot .

Wow, i am not going to call you cruel! I muself found out some days ago that Aftias actually likes it when i pull his ears back while i pet him! Thank God, but just 'till now i though that he was kind of a mazochistic bunny! But thankfully it seems that he is not! Now my turn! I love it when he dlips back and forth while he is half flopped, just tha way dogs do! He also looks kind of cute when he hears a car coming! For some reason he is really scared of cars and when he hears one he flattens down! And then when the car leaves he gets right back and shakes his head! I think that he feels very relieved when he does that!
