Spoiled Rotten or Spoiled Ripe?

Monday 27 June 2011 at 1:14 pm

People often treat their pets better than themselves! All you have to do is visit your local pet store and check out all of the products available for four-legged members of the family.

These are some of the ways in which I spoil my buns. I am hoping that, if I'm the only one out there who does these things, no one will judge me for them. These could also be viewed as a kind of litmus test that proves whether or not you are "bunny whipped."

  • When people ask me if I have house rabbits, I answer with, "Yes," but I want to follow it with, "duh. All rabbits belong indoors!"
  • I remodeled my sunroom and it is now called the bunroom. I use old carpet remnants for resting pads and put some bunny carriers in the room for them to play on/in (so they won't be scared of the carrier when it's vet time).
  • Each of my rabbits has his or her own special greeting. When I greet my female mini-rex, I always tell her what a beautiful bunny she is (and she really IS because her eyelashes are different colors). When I greet my male Himalayan, I talk in a different voice and scratch his back. They both get lots of praise and attention.
  • Both bunnies get pets and brushed with a soft-bristle brush daily. While I am doing this I rub their ears and give them little kisses on the tops of their heads.
  • I talk to the bunnies when I clean out their litter pans. I have found that they seem to recognize my voice and are more comfortable after the front door opens when they hear it.
  • The bunnies get fresh vegetables daily, but they go crazy for kale. I don't know what it is (or if they can influence humans to eat healthier), but they love it. After I wash the kale and other vegetables, I turn on the garbage disposal briefly. When they hear this sound, they both begin jumping and looking for their dinner. One usually jumps over the other. They get very excited over kale.
  • I think this last part proves that my bunnies have trained me very well. Both of them have developed the habit of thumping at me when they want something or feel stressed. One of my bunnies thumps at me for making an occasional loud noise. I have learned, however, not to dismiss all thumping. Once there was a bird outside the window of the bunny room. It really scared both of them, so I consider that "justified" thumping.

Hopefully I'm not the only one out there who lets the bunnies run the house. They are probably spoiled, but not spoiled ROTTEN. They're spoiled RIPE.
