Whisky's holiday

Last week we had a very special visitor staying at our house – the one and only Whisky.

"A holiday? But I only just got back from my stay at the vets!"

The timing was unfortunate following his recent health issues but BHV had to attend a conference for work so we offered up our ex-foster bunny room as house-bunny suitable holiday accommodation.

Bunnies never travel light and Whisky arrived with a large bag of hay, two boxes of dried foods, a bag of dried herbs, 7 different meds (2 daily, the others in case of need), scales to keep an eye on his weight, a tunnel, two teddy bears and a blanket. BHV also lent us his camera so we could capture some holiday snaps.

During the week he was the perfect house bunny, using his litter tray, eating everything that was put in front of him and behaving impeccably at medicine time even if he wasn't very pleased about it. I was hoping to have some interesting tales to tell you about his stay but, for Whisky, it was a very uneventful week. I didn't even get any particularly good photos - though that may be my lack of photography skills rather than a lack of opportunities for good pictures!

Although it was lovely having him stay, it was really great to see him reunited with BHV yesterday and heading home as I'm sure this is where he would rather be. Hopefully he is settling back in well and we can look forward to more updates of his antics soon. 


  1. Awww sounds like he just kicked back and relaxed,but its always good to be home,xx Rachel

  2. He looks so much better! Yes, best to start training new bunny slaves while they are young and easily impressed with how adorable bunnies appear to be.

  3. lovely to see little Whisky looking better.

  4. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you for taking such good care of Whiskey. I personally feel it was essential to mobilize the entire household. Your pictures are great, but how did you find the time?
