Ollie settles in...

Ollie has been really good the last few days. He's seemed to have settled into the dauily routine well here. He's a pretty happy bunny and has had fun just exploring his first room of the house. His appetite is wondeful, he vigorously enjoys his timothy hay and appreciate the greens and pellets. more importantly, he is really getting the hang on the litterbox.

When I let him out I will sit on the floor and read a book and ignore him. he runs around the room and explores but gradually comes over to me every now and then. I just read so he knows I'm a presence in the room, but won't lunge at him or hurt him. So each day he is more used to me being around and has come over to give a hello nudge and get petting.

Baxter is one grumpy bunny. She has shown her nasty side which has never before appeared around Greyton and Twizzle. She growls up a storm at Ollie. probably because some of her territory has been delegated to him(although her and Twizzle get dibs on the whole rest of the upstairs during the day and night.)

Twizzle doesn't know Ollie is around yet, and since he is so much bigger and also tends to be territorial we shall keep the Land of Ollie and Twizzlevania far from one another for now.

What a wonderful way to make that little bunny feel welcome. Hopefully the others will accept him too.

Twizzle has no idea that Ollie is around? Don't bunnies have keen senses of smell?

Happy turkey day to all at the Pratt household.
