Nothing much going on with the bunnies this weekend. Everybun went about his/her own way, enjoying the good ol’ bunny routine of eating, sleeping & pooping.. until they were rudely interrupted by us, hehe! Yep, it’s nail trimming time again!
Yohji was the first ‘victim’:
We try not to pick him up too frequently because each time we pick him up, he reverts back a little to his skittish old self. But his nails have gotten really long, we couldn’t leave him out this time:
Yohji managed to escape after I finished with 3 paws, which means we have to grab him again another time to finish the last paw. Not looking forward to that.. I don’t want to break the bond which I’ve been trying so hard to form with him.
Later on, it was Hans’ turn:
He wasn’t happy with the trimming session, but overall, he’s quite a cool bun 😎 I fed him some rolled oats and he was munching away happily while lying in that odd position. Remember how I’ve been trying to get Hans to eat his greens, and some fruits/treats? He still refuses to touch any of those. So far, rolled oats are the only treats this fussy guy will accept! He gets them in limited amounts but he really goes crazy over them. At least now, I have something to reward him with when he’s being a good boy.
Here’s a pic for those who love big bunny feetsies as much as I do:
Buttons watched us out of the corner of her eye. She was on to us!
She sought solace in her cardboard box:
Oh well, trimming the nails of 2 bunnies over 1 weekend is a big feat for us as it is! It’s a challenge grabbing them and keeping them still. And then there’s the fear that I’ll accidentally hit the quick when trimming a nail. Even though I’ve trimmed their nails many times, I still feel nervous each time I have to do it.
So Buttons’ nails are safe for now.. we’ll continue the trimming sessions next weekend 😀
