Tobias and Tris

image

We adopted 2 bunnies last week. Tobias was rescued from s breeder and came home with us on 17 Jun 2015. Tris was found abandoned near a dog shelter and came home with us on 18 Jun. Both bunnies spent the weekend at Little Bobtail Resort as we were at church camp.

Mon, 22 Jun, was the first day the bunnies truly came home with us. T & T seem to be in a love/ hate relationship. They were living peacefully most of Mon night and Tue but suddenly fought twice late into Tue night.

Today, things seemed to have improved as I saw both bunnies taking turns to groom each other. However, we are not sure what triggered it but they got into a scuffle close to midnight.

We had to put them both into the carrier as a punishment and it sort of worked though Tris was a lot more scared than Tobias.

It’s just after 3am now and the bunnies have made up. Saw mutual grooming again. I suspect Tobias is somebun who needs a lot of space so I removed this lotus grass slipper house from their playpen and I saw Tobias binky for the first time. What a delightful sight!

I’m going to bed now. Certainly hope their relationship will stabilise!

Pinky

It’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. I’ve been busy and sick. Pinky was diagnosed with snuffles just before CNY and his appetite got so severely affected that he developed GI Stasis a week later. The past couple of weeks have seen their up and downs. At Pinky’s weakest, his weight dropped to 1.37kg. At his best – last Fri – his weight  increased to 1.55kg. 

Then his snuffles flared up again. When Pinky stopped eating again 3 days ago (on Thurs), my dad sent him to be boarded at Little Bobtail Resort. The owner, Jennifer, is vert good at force feeding and has been syringe feeding Pinky 5 feeds a day. 

I hope Pinky gets well soon. I realised a couple of years back that by praying that God will heal Pinky isn’t really for him. It’s me asking God to continue to extend the blessing of Pinky in my life. 

Please bless us, Lord. 

Pinky

Poor Pinky’s not well. The old boy has cataracts developing in both eyes. Brought him to the vet who prescribed medicine to slow down the cataracts but it’s not really possible to remove them (surgery would be too risky for an old bunny like him).

Pinky has also developed snuffles (a rabbit cold). I hope it’s just URTI and will heal quickly. Otherwise, it’ll be another trip to the vet in the next few days and these trips are always traumatising for Pinky.

Please pray with me that Pinky will recover soon. The Lord has blessed and taken Pinky safely through many health scares before and I pray that He’ll sustain the old boy again.

Lonely Pinky

Pinky’s been really lonely since Horlicks & Coffee passed away. Since he was young, Pinky has always been accompanied by another, for the lack of a better term, living thing. When he was baby, he used to stay with us on the 2nd floor of my patents’ house. When he got bigger, he stayed in the garden with his mom, separated by a fence from Coffee & Peanut. When Peanut & Horlicks died, Pinky still had Coffee around (even if they didn’t hang out together) for company. Now that even Coffee has passed on, poor Pinky’s been really lonely. Once he hears noises in the living room, he’ll press his paws against the side door asking to be let in.

Even if it’s just to sleep while we watch TV or chat, he’s satisfied. I spent almost the entire evening keeping Pinky company just now & boy was he happy. He scurried around the hall, sniffed toes & refused to go home after spending more than 2 hours with us. I had to push his backside bit by bit to get him to go back out into the garden.

I am going to try to visit Pinky as many times a week as possible. He’s an old boy now – at 5 years, 10.5 months. I hope he’ll be as happy as he possibly can for the remaining period of his life.

Really not sure how long more we’ll have with the darling of the family. He’s been having soft stools off & on for about 2 months now but he’s still active & has a good appetite.

I hope Pinky has many more years with us. He’s such a loveable bunny.

Bye bye Coffee

Coffee passed away on 31 Oct 2011. My dad said he seemed very tired on Sun night. When my dad patted his head, he didn’t move much. Coffee was about 6 years 4 months when he died. Don’t have much photos of Coffee on the iPad. Will try to post a proper blog about him over the weekend. Goodbye Coffee. Hope u’re well in bunny heaven. Pinky’s the only surviving bunny. Hope he won’t get too lonely… Sigh.
