Artemis-Athena

Post by freecycle_rabbit on Sun Mar 06, 2016 12:01 am

My little madam has been with me a few months now and has made herself quite at home. No longer the nervous wreck, now a cheeky, bold little madam who loves to dig.
She isnt yet quite brave enough to willingly agree to being picked up, she will run up to me as if she wants to be sopcialble, then stops does a little jump and runs off again!

yesterday however my son was here and between us we got her from the hutch and she had a cuddle. She was covered in wet sticky clay, which is still there but now dried - tomorrow i will need to brush her... Hmmm

This is where we started


this is what she gets up to now


and this is first cuddle - see that muddy back end!


Such a pretty face

She is absolutely gorgeous darling, that beautiful white stripe on her nose.  I am glad she is blossoming and her real personality is starting to show and it sounds really cute.  I think she will be a cuddly bun in time. I hope she enjoys her brushing, please let us know. Very Happy

Hugs

Well the brushing went well, she wasn't too much trouble to get hold of, had a bit of a dance, but nothing like i expected.
She is now mud free and pretty looking and minus lots of unwanted fur. A well needed brushing.
She got a bit stressed, so i let her go after a sufficient brushing. She took a couple of minutes to recover, but was soon running round again. I put a stone across the entrance to the hole for today, told her she at least had to stay clean for the rest of the day.
Smile
I sat in the run with them for a while after whilst i defluffed myself so as not to appear the big bad person who came in, grabbed her and went out again. She came up to me and got quite close, so chatted to her, but kept my hands to myself so as not to startle her away this time. All in all it was a success.

Dillon was shocked to see her on my lap,couldn't work out what was happening and kept coming up to see what was going on. He did think about going out of the run as the gate was ajar, but decided it was too scary without mum by his side! albino

Very Happy Yes, im not sure if he was confused or jealous! He is very much the centre of attention and while we had Tia he had to take a back seat as she was the boss. Since Tia left us for the Rainbow Bridge, Dillon has really come out of himself and enjoyed being IT. Obviously Arte didnt make any difference as she was more than happy for him to be the 'Front of House PR Bun' so for her to now be possible competition for my attention may well be whats confusing him.
Obviously i know i have enough love for them both , but maybe he is worried she will take over like Tia did.

Arte on the other hand, has now decided getting muddy is not all its cracked up to be and has filled her hole in! Funny Bunny Girl albino

I think its a female thing Jo, we just cant help ourselves Smile

Arte loves digging, but it seems its a recreational thing, rather than digging herself a new home. She digs a burrow, then after a while she fills it in and digs somewhere else, until its time to fill that in, then after a few days she will open up hole 1 again. we actually have 3 on the go at the moment lol.

She was very brave and went into the hutch for dinner this evening while i stood and held the door open for her!

That sounds like nest building instincts are still in evidence. The stopping up of a burrow is usually after kittens are born... I bet she is scenting wild rabbits nesting.

I think you are both right ladies, it is a nest building instinct.  You should see my duvet, it is absolutely in tatters with her teefies and clawsies!  It maybe recreational, she certainly enjoys doing it lol!
