Not really. But at home, it kind of is. He’s such a different bunny from any I’ve ever cared for before.
Last few nights, he’s decided he enjoys jumping on me when I’m on the couch and demanding to be petted. This, as you can imagine, is not a hardship for me. Except when I stop. And he decides I need to be back at it. So he tells me with a not-gentle nip. He’s still a baby, and only 3 weeks since his neuter, so testosterone is still in him. He gets the high-pitched bunny squeal of pain in return, which is a language he understands. Eventually, the nipping will stop. Or get gentler, anyway.
Meanwhile, I’ve been posting these videos the last few nights. People tell me it’s very soothing to watch. So here you go.
Tully came back for more love tonight. Not pictured: multiple bites of my person (fingers esp) when he decided I shouldn’t have stopped petting him, or I didn’t have food for him. I’m sure my neighbours think I’m being beaten in here, since the appropriate response to shut down a bunny bite is a high-pitched scream. Breaking this habit of his is gonna take time, clearly. #oy #buthesworthit #patience
