Bunny Love

Although I completely understand why, it still kills me
that I can't share my foster kiddos here. 
Oh what fun I would have with some of there darling and amusing snapshots
But I do have one little fellow in my life who deserves a bit more attention.
If you don't recall Sunday is my bunny who we found in our neighborhood
and who has become quite a big part of our family.
(you can read our "Sunday" story here)
Sunday lives in our home, which yes is a bit smelly
but he gets a tad grumpy if he's left alone in his cage to long.
He does however LOVE his outside pen where he spends his time
digging an amazing fortress of a den.
It's amusing to say the least how much work he puts into his hole,
digging and pushing dirt around like a little bulldozer.
But just as soon as I think I'm never going to get him out of there
he covers it back up. What a silly rabbit!

But the day he was the silliest of all
was the day my husband found him carrying around this wad of grass in his mouth.
After hours of watching him hop around in such a manner,
I finally "helped" him put it down.
I was afraid maybe he had lock jaw or something... 
it was just so strange that he wouldn't put it down.
We tried to google this strange behavior, but everything suggested he was nesting.
I wonder then why he never put it down, and began to eat it as soon as he was free of it?
hmmmm... any ideas? 
I should mention I'm not 100% sure that Sunday is a boy,
we just had a friend check for us who's had a lot of bunnies.
Either way Sunday hasn't been around any other bunnies,
so why would he/she be thinking about nesting anyways?
Plus he's standing on top of his den in this picture
so I can also conclude he wasn't trying to make his little home more cozy.
Hopefully we'll be able to get him fixed soon,
as I've heard they may get grumpy otherwise...
Sunday has his moments, but in general he's such a love bug.
He's especially lovable at night-time when I'm up feeding the baby.
He rings his little bell like crazy just begging me to come over and pet him.

Hope you can get him fixed it is much healthier for them.

Rabbits also require vaccinations so he needs to pop to the vet anyway due to that scary illness. :( I hope it isn't illegal where you are to vaccinate against Myxomatosis!

Not sure about the wad of grass in his mouth I think he probably just got a bit carried away and couldn't drop it after. lol Bless him :)
