Poorly Whisky

Whisky is very poorly this week, we don't know what is causing it but it came on quite suddenly Sunday night. I probably won't be posting here for a few days while I focus my thoughts on my little boy. Thanks to everyone who has already sent their kind wishes.

A Week Start

The best way to start the week is with a smile - and even better if that infectious smile is sat on the face of a bunny!

When Whisky Met Rhianna

"What's with the cage? Are we here for no-holds-barred fighting?"

For the last few weeks Whisky has been coming to the Rescue with me one day a week. Far from being just a day out for him, we have been introducing him to Rhianna, a very sweet natured girl who came in with Tatiana (they look very similar, I am guessing they are sisters).

Whisky and Rhianna had a couple of days in a bonding shed staring at each other through cage bars. Whisky being a fragile little soul, we wanted to take it easy so last week she moved into his room in a cage. With zero sign of tension between them over the week, yesterday we put them out in a neutral space at the Rescue together. It started OK, but ultimately he can't get over his fear of other rabbits, he lashes out in a panic and she would only take so much before she started fighting back. So it seems it wasn't to be.

After a long day, Whisky chose to stay in his room last night looking absolutely exhausted. I thought he'd be cheerier today, but after a series of super-flopped-out naps I'm now mostly getting a lot of this:

"Harumph."

I don't know which part of the experience he is holding against me, but I am hoping the resentment goes away soon. Ho hum.

O Brother, Where Art Carrots?

A number of Texas' seven offspring were digestively challenged and have needed to be kept on a strict diet. With the trio of brothers we are careful not to feed them certain types of veg as that generally leads to a rather messy run.

"See Washington? I told you it was Nevada's fault we never get any carrots!"

"Oh, yeah, of course, like I'M the only one with an explosive bottom!!"
