Since we separated the bunnies, there have been no dramas. All peace and quiet with lots of bunny kisses each day from Rome.
We bought them toys and chew mats, gave them little cardboard boxes which they use to chew, jump on and sleep in and bought them tubes to play in.
Yes, we had to buy 2 of everything so they each have one in their separate spaces. We ended up having to get them each a separate hay rack and water bottle.
We also bought them boxes that they can jump in and out of, dig in and use as litters. We also put hay in there so they have an incentive to jump in and out.
Overall I think they’re happy. I know Rome is.
I can’t work out if Paris is or not. He doesn’t do nearly as many binkies (a binky is their jump for joy, it’s a sign of their love for life), he still stays away from us and he likes to spend a lot of time in his hutch even when the door is open all day for him.
I let them out at 9am and don’t put them back in their hutch until 11pm. They’re supposed to get a minimum of 4 hours play time outside of their hutch.
These boys get 14 hours free time, though they do spend a lot of that time (from approx. 12-6pm) sleeping. The difference in personalities is amazing.
Even with 14 hours out each, Paris spends all his free time inside the hutch and doesn’t care if we close and lock the door. Rome wants out IMMEDIATELY and looks like he really wants to get out of jail.
I can’t tell if the wanting to stay in the hutch is Paris’ personality or if he is holding a grudge and really doesn’t like us. This boy is seriously hard to read and sure seems moody. Should have named him emo.
As for me and Tony, we’re good. We attend yoga occasionally and are not so hard-core about it anymore.
I’m loving the yin yoga. Since my whole being is very yang, yin just ensures I feel more balanced. Tony’s loving the vinyasa because it’s building up his arms. IMHO, his arms have never looked better!
Not going out so much ’cause I’m trading our going out money for buying the rabbits everything they need money.
It’s ok though ’cause we’ve had plenty to eat given Christmas and then Chinese New Year happened within a month of each other. Gong Hei Fat Choy 😉
And it’s ok we haven’t gone out much ’cause we’ve re-established order and stability with a lot more love at home.
It took 1 month. Not bad for a major change!
And that’s it. Life is peaceful, calm and simple again.
