    He's now got his own room.

    I leave the kennel open and he only goes in there to eat, crap, and hide. Otherwise, he's got a little stack of boxes to hop on, newspaper to shred, a tunnel to run through, paper towel tubes to find treats hidden in, and a lot of room to lounge or zip around. He loves it. I...

    It sounds awful outside

    because of some nasty wind. Alys is scared and thumping her concern in her kennel (Magic isn't scared. He's stretched out in a corner, unconcerned about anything). She wouldn't stop (rabbits can really get themselves worked up and that's not good for them). I went over to her...

    Litter training a rabbit has to be one of the

    easiest things I've ever done. o.0 Drop the pan on the floor, put some bedding in, and he gets it! lol

    Magic thought it'd be fun to do some stunts.

    The result is a mess. My DVDs and half my books are all over the place, and he's hiding in a corner staring at me like I threw them on him or something just to mess up his day. :/

    It is gorgeous outside today.

    I'm naming her Alys... Magic doesn't know yet and he won't get to meet her for short while since I need to get her used to me and the new surroundings (and then get her spayed and let her recover from that). Once things settle down, then I'll have them meet.

    He doesn't like his reflection.
