Cute, cute, cute..... [Oct. 13th, 2005|10:29 am]
Tony Grist

I didn't mention this before, what with everything else that was going on, but we acquired a rabbit and a guinea pig last week. Joe had been talking about getting a snake or a rottweiler and I figured we should head him off at the pass.

I was thinking small animals would be low maintenance. I was wrong.

The rabbit is Toshiro Mifunny the Bunny (aka Fluffbucket) and the guineapig is Mulan

Rabbits. Low maintenance. Hmmm. Has someone explained to you about rabbits and electrical cords yet? It's a wonder none of the ones I've had or known have electrocuted themselves.

I've been finding out for myself....

It seems rabbits will try knibbling anything once...

or twice...or three times....

In my experience, the tropism for electrical cords can be lifelong. One particularly industrious lagomorph of my acquaintance was also wont to chew the wrapping paper off one corner each of every present under the Christmas tree. Must have been curious. For whatever reason, approved chewing sticks/blocks/whatever are never as appealing as whatever would be most annoying or destructive to put iddy rabbit chewmarks into. But they are awfully cute. Let this be your mantra.

Ailz was just wondering about the Christmas tree. We have an artificial one. Two questions. (1) Will he eat it? (actually I think I know the answer to that. And (2) Will he enjoy it if he does?

Well, I guess I own most of the movies Mifune made with Kurosawa.....

Guinea pigs are very squeezable.

They also, as we've discovered, have very sharp claws...

And now there's a second GP. We're calling her Nuala- after Ailz's cousin in Ireland.

Awww. Let me see, at one time in his life my brother Mark had a guinea pig (that I gave him ) that lived for a LONG time. And at another time he had bunnies - they were supposed to be his daughter's but you know...he ended up having to take care of them.

Never cared all that much for birds...maybe I just like cuddly pets.

I had a white rabbit when I was a kid and my sister had a guinea pig. I'm afraid we got bored with them and gave them away.

Yes, I know- the shame.....

awww! and such a bright little house for the gp!
bunnies, i've heard, can be kind of high maintenance. the only experience i've had was to visit a pair that a friend was bunny-sitting. huckleberry and ainsley. ainsley was just a regular litlle lop-eared girl but huck was positively enourmous. a flemish giant if memory serves. they both had the run of the house (you can litter train them i guess) and aside from being a little timid were very well behaved. good luck, and be sure to post more pics.

Our bunny is supposedly a dwarf- though he's grown noticeably since we bought him.

He's difficult to photograph. Firstly because he's always on the move and secondly because his character is expressed in movement and still images just don't do him justice. Nevertheless I shall keep on trying.
