A Very Bunny Existence

Life with a husband and 3 bunnies.

A Trip to the Torturarium

on August 6, 2012

This morning started out quite normally for the buns.  They got breakfast, they ran around, they pooped.  Then, around 9:40 a.m., they were stuffed into horrid boxes and driven around for 45 minutes before they arrived at…

the torturarium.

Also known as the vet.  We decided to take them for a yearly check up and ask the vet some questions.  All of them had heartbeats around/over 200.  So, it’s not like they were scared or anything.  The vet was so awesome, though.  Dr. Crum checked their eyes, ears, heartbeat, lungs, feet/nails, tummies, teeth, and weight.  Upon checking Nibbles’ tummy, he exclaimed, “Wow, you’ve got a lot of poops in there!”  Junie’s tummy got a similar response with, “Those are some big Cocoa Puffs you’ve got in there.”  Overall, everything looks a-okay on everybody.  Crispin was the only bun with some slightly curved teeth, which isn’t a problem now, but may mean he’ll have to have his teeth sanded down in the future.  Here are their weight stats:

Nibbles:  4.14 lbs.

Crispin:  3.15 lbs.

Junie:  3.04 lbs.

Not too shabby.  On the way home, Nibbles was breathing so loud and fast that we could hear his little nose making squeaking noises.  It was pretty pathetic.  When we let them out at home I gave them each a baby carrot to make up for the ordeal.  Crispin eagerly took his, but Nibbles initially turned up his nose at it.  Junie never touched hers, so I eventually gave her some dried papaya cubes that she gladly took.  Once Nibbles had calmed down a bit more, I tried again and he ate his carrot somewhat suspiciously.  We were given many disapproving looks throughout the rest of the afternoon:

“Why, human, why??”

“I disapprove of your antics, human.”

“Stay away, evil caretaker!”

Unfortunately, this week isn’t going to be too kind to the bunnies.  On Friday, we’re going out of town and the buns are coming along.  A 4+ hour drive, smaller-than-usual quarters for the weekend, and a return drive won’t be too fun for them.  But they’ll survive.  We’ll give them extra treats to make up for the injustices in their world.

    At least you don’t have to get up each morning and go to school for years, buns. It could be worse.

    It’s for their own good! One day, they’ll thank you! 🙂
