Maze Haven Heaven!

Here is a picture of Miss Binks and I in our wonderful new house! It's called a Maze Haven and Mommy bought it for us from - how awesome does it look?!

We have had a few different cardboard houses in our time, but never one like this. It's really neat inside because it has all kinds of cool little rooms and tunnels connected by holes in the wall. Then there are holes in the ceiling that lead up to the next level and a whole other floor of rooms and passageways. And THEN there are even more holes that go up to the roof! I can survey the entire room from up there!

Miss Binks prefers the main level but I like to hop up to the second level and snooze. And if I play my cards right and stay hidden from any windows and keep completely still, it's perfect for when Mom comes looking for me and can't figure out where I am! But then she shakes the raisin box and I can't help myself - I come leaping out of the second-story window and run over to get my share before Binks eats them all.

After a long day of munching on hay and digging in my Stupid Blankets (see previous post), I like to hunker down with my precious Miss Binks in one of the "back rooms". Here it's nice and quiet and I can cuddle with her and listen to her snore. Sometimes it even really feels like we have a big house to live in, just like Mom and Dad. I love "coming home" to Binks where we can unwind and discuss our day. "What did you do today, Fluffy?" she will ask. "Well, I ate some pellets and scarfed down some hay. Then I binkied around the room for a bit, jumped up on the couch and taught those Stupid Blankets a thing or two. How about you?"

"Oh, I ate some hay, too. Then I napped in the beams of sunshine coming in through the patio doors and watched Nutters and Butters come and get some peanuts. The birds at the bird feeder were having quite the feast today."

"Awwwww, that's nice...." I say as she places her head under mine for licks, which I oblige to give her. And there we sit, comforted by each other's warmth and love, like an old married couple enjoying the simple things in life, cuddling in our new Maze Haven, our sweet new bunny abode.....

On Holiday!

It's summertime and during the summer, people usually go on holiday - well, bunnies go on holiday, too!

Mom and Dad decided to spend four days in Windsor and they took all four of us bunnies with them! All four of us includes Miss Binks and I and the other two rabbits that live upstairs, Ella and Scooter MaGoo. Boo stayed at Grandpa's house. Grandpa loves Boo. He thinks he is a "neat lil' fella!"

It was about a 3 1/2 hour drive and we stopped half way to stretch our legs and have a snack in our xpens. When we got to the hotel, the staff were ooo-ing and ahhh-ing all over us - aparently they had never had rabbits as guests before. Mom and Dad set up two xpens for us to live in while on vacation - Binks and I in one and Ella and Scooter in the other. Miss Binks ended up spending most of her time giving Scooter the Evil Eye - I don't think she has seen him since she beat him up that first night in our new place.....(see the "Not All Bunnies Get Along" post from December).

We had a lot of fun! Mom let us out in the hall so we could run up and down and every time someone would get out of the elevator or leave their room, they were always surprised to see rabbits in the hallway. Mom even took me down to the lobby where I happily hopped about, attracting a lot of attention. What can I say? I'm a handsome boy.

Mom put a barrier up in the room and we got to run around as well. My favourite spot was under the desk. See the picture? That's Binks and I having a snuggle. Binks kept trying to highjack Ella and Scooter's xpen. She left a line of poops all along the sides of it to let them know she was there. One time, when Scooter and Ella were having some out time, she even hopped right inside, jumped in their litterbin and left a surprise! Silly Binks. Then Mom caught her so she high-tailed it out of there real fast!

I tried ordering carrots from Room Service but my paws couldn't operate the buttons on the phone very well. But that's okay, we had a mini-fridge stuffed full of greens, kale, parsley, carrots and something called beer. I don't know what that last item is but Mom and Dad said not to worry because it was for them anyway.

Going on vacation was nice. Mom and Dad hugged and played with us a lot and it was fun to explore new places. But it sure was nice to come back home. I missed my big litterbin and my toys, and my cardboard house and I think I even missed my stupid blankets, too. And being able to sit infront of the patio doors and heckel Nutters and Butters as they come searching for their peanuts is always fun. So after four long days and two car rides, Miss Binks and I settled down for a nice, relaxing nap, her head pressed up against mine, her nose a-twitch and the soft sound of her snores filling my ears. Now THAT'S a holiday....
