In other news...

This little sweetie arrived for me in the mail today, a gift from my friend Laura:


Isn't he precious?



Laura said she thought he was a handsome mahogany version of Mickey. I have to agree, especially because Mickey does pose like that when he's getting his nose stroked (and for Mick, getting his nose stroked is better than even treats--shocking, I know, but it's true).

Look at the detail on this little bun: the artist even etched pawprints on him!



Just too cool, that's all I can say.

Speaking of Mr. Mick, he is doing well; finished all of his meds as of yesterday. We have a follow-up appointment with the vet tomorrow afternoon. At the moment, he is sitting next to me, being loafy-bun in his big litterbox. This has become our afternoon routine now;  while I am on the computer, he sits next to me getting lots of petting, food and the occasional syringe of water or papaya in pineapple juice. That way, I can make sure he's getting enough fluids inside him while still getting things done and he gets all the attention he wants and his afternoon shows on TV (Current faves: the Little League World Series on ESPN, CSI reruns on SpikeTVand Top Chef marathons on Bravo). Later in the evening, he'll get his usual run for exercise (or what passes for exercise in the world of the world's laziest bunneh) and I get the glamourous job of bunny-poop inspector.

Glad Mickey boy is doing so good. Makes me incredibly happy. You are such a great mom Jade letting him watch TV like that. ;)
Cheers from one bunny poop inspector to another!

Nice to hear that Mickey is improving. How does he feel about the upcoming NFL season? Does he get involved in fantasy leagues?

The joys and tribulations of bunny mom ...

Glad to hear Mickey is doing well! Clovie and I were beginning to worry since you hadn't posted in a while.

Michelle: If it is something being given away and it looks like this little bun, I think it should be given to me by default. ;)

Fab Furs: Mickey does like football, although we're not sure which team he prefers yet. It's a mixed household: I'm a Patriots fan, the boy is a Ravens fan, and hubby claims to be a Giants fan but is often lured away by whatever team is winning like mad or by the Antichrist that is Brett Favre. (I should see if Mickey can give me some tips on my fantasy team this year so we can shame the boy for once.)

Bunns: oh yes, and they are many--and most involve poop in one way or another. :)

Sue and Clovie: Sorry to have worried you--I was a bit concerned about that possibility, but until this little gift showed up, there really wasn't much to report. There will be info on the vet visit tomorrow for sure, though.

We're so happy to hear that's Mick's better! Let's hope he hasn't got to used to being hand fed and think this means he can get lazier and lazier!

So, so glad and relieved Mickey is doing better.

I am so glad you like it. :) I thought of you the instant I saw it.

And so glad the real bun is doing so well.
