Welcome To The BunnyDome

"Forget it!  I'm not getting in that thing!"
"But Fluffy, I got it for you and Binks!  It's a cool house to sleep in!"
"It's a cat litter bin!"
"Well, technically yes, but that's not to say it doesn't make an awesome place to hide!  Look, there's no litter in there, I put your nice soft bed in there!  It's like a bunny palace, with steps and everything!"

It's a litter bin for cats and I'm not going in.

Even though Miss Binks is blind, she is still always the first to explore something new that is placed in our playroom.  So of course, I let her check it out first.  Watch the video.  See her reaction?  That was a definite no.  No for her means no for me (unless it's treats, then no for her means more for me).

We have so much stuff.  Seriously.  We have so many places to hide, I don't know why Mom thought another place would be good.  "But it's nice and purple and stylish!  Just try it - I swear you will like it....."

We have a Maze Haven (well only half of one now.  Binky recently took it upon herself to demolish the lower level so Mom cut it down to just one level instead of two).  We have a willow tent.  We have a stuffed tree house.  We have TWO plush houses.  We have a tunnel.  And we have a coffee table. 

Now we also have a stupid purple igloo.

Wish she would have spent the money on bananas instead.....

Keeping Cool

Ugh.  The heat.......the heat is unbearable!  I flop all day.  Sometimes I can't even lift my head to get a drink of water......parched, overcome.......

"Fluffy, you live in an air conditioned basement."  Mom!  I'm trying to be dramatic!

Mom says it's way too hot out for any of us bunns to go outside so I pretty much spend the entire day looking out the patio doors watching the grass continue to turn yellow.  Nutters and Butters, the neighbourhood squirrels, haven't been around for days and even the birds are too hot to chirp.  You know it's hot when the sea gulls at the local Tim Hortons walk around with their beaks wide open.  Why do they continue to sit atop lampposts in the glaring heat?  They're birds.  They're seagulls.  Go fly to some water and go for a swim!  There must be a Tim Hortons somewhere along the lake.....

Yeah, Binks and I are pretty lucky to have the air conditioning.  Not a lot of snorgling is going on though - too much body heat.  "Fluffy, my whiskers are curling.  Let's cuddle later...."

So Mom decided to spoil us with a perfect summer treat - watermelon!  Now, it's been a year since we had watermelon so I think I forgot how good it is, as you can see in the video above.  Miss Binks pretty much turned up her nose at it, she says it makes her whiskers sticky.  Me?  I don't care.  Nothing a good face wash won't take care of.  And by the time morning rolled around, that watermelon was pretty much gone.

So here's to watermelon, yellow grass, parched seagulls and ridiculous humidex readings.  And of course, to the air conditioner that makes it all survivable.....
