Don't Panic!


There was minor uproar in the living room last night. Dan was obviously in a bit of a grump and I didn't know why, it turned out he'd found a chewed patch on the reasonably new rug. So we decided to rotate the rug to hide the patch. I wanted to do this anyway so it wears more evenly. 

This did not go down well with the rabbits, it was worse than going-to-the-vet time with running around, loud sniffing and general carrying on, they had clearly just got their side as they liked it and any change means starting afreshWe rotated the rug and it turned out the bald patch was just a small squidged down part with a bit of a mark on it, some spot cleaning and an ice cube later and it was fine.  Unlike our relationship with the buns who were most upset for the rest of the evening, although a small amount of broccoli started to make amends.

  1. We used to let our guinea pigs and hamsters roam freely in the house and suffered a few 'chewed' items here and there. Lucky there was no damage this time as it's a lovely rug.

    1. Over the years we've learned how to reduce chewing opportunities, I am glad it was a false alarm this time. I love the rug, it's just an Ikea affair, I think we paid around £80 for it, less than £100 at any rate.

  2. Poor little bunnies! Harvey would know just how they feel as when the boys are home for a visit one always sits in "his place" on the couch, kind of mixes him up for the day.

    God bless.

    1. They don't like their routine to be altered at all, all is well now though.

  6. Lovely to see your buns! Ours relish change, they adore things being moved about, it's all very exciting. Our first house bunny Mitsy hated change in any way, shape or form ... move something five inches and it unsettled her.

    1. I thought it would be nice to show them off, they're so nosey though as soon as they see the phone or a camera they head straight towards it.

      They're a bit odd, when we move their toys and other stuff around in their pen they love it, anything outside the pen they're unimpressed.
