Alice is the most cautious rabbit we've ever had. She doesn't love us yet, but she's feeling more at home here. When she first arrived, we would let her out to roam the front of the shop for the day, but getting her to go home was a challenge. Lately, we've simply put her evening meal in her house and she easily goes in to eat. We close her up, open up Petal's house and let him out for the night.
The last time we attempted bonding the two of them, Petals went back to his house and fell asleep for the afternoon. Bonding is stressfull and he is pretty old: nine years. So, I'm taking him out to Littleton Hospital for a check up this month to make sure his heart is strong enough to deal with the stress. Also, he's never been checked by a Vet. He's been the healthiest of all the bunnies we've had, but now, it's time to get a sense of how he's doing. I think he'd probably be just as happy as a single guy for the rest of his life, but it would be nice for Alice to have a pal.
Alice is also moulting. Gone is the fat sleek rabbit who first arrived. Now she has raggedy fur that gives her a quirky look which is irrisistable. I love this photo of her: she looks a bit wild.
The wedding this weekend is yellow. We have a few big birthdays this week, so I chose pink anemone and sweet pea to go with the last of the Jame's Pillow peonies.
Yellow wedding photos coming up next.
