Let's go to the videos

It's a little sad when it takes a video to remind you that you need to clean the rabbit's cage...or in my case, two:

Saw Mickey napping and looking ever so cute, so I tiptoed back to my desk and got my Flip-cam:

As you can see, I got some serious snub for accidentally waking him up, so of course I had to sit down and open the cage door for some intensive petting. Fortunately, His Majesty was in a forgiving mood, as you can see here:

Thoughts as I'm reviewing the footage:

"Oh, these will make a great post."

"Oh, ****--his cage is a total mess!"

So while the videos are uploading, I'm cleaning Mickey's cage. While I'm cleaning Mickey's cage, he's in his carrier being a total spazbunny because this is NOT what he was expecting. Even a couple of treats did not extinguish his wrath. I finally tossed one of his new toss-toys in with him so he could vent on that and finished cleaning the cage.

I thought I was done, but then I made the mistake of checking the first video one more time:

"Oh, ****--is that **** on his butt again?!"

The boy peeks in and offers his two cents: "Yeah, I saw some **** on his butt earlier, you'd better take care of it."


So after the cage got cleaned, the bunny butt got cleaned--and it's a good thing, because the bunny butt was in a worse state than the cage.

Needless to say, though, I won't be getting too many licks for the rest of the night. Somebunny is not at all happy with me.

Jeez, if I ever have to clean Clovis' butt, how am I going to do that if I can't even hold him? He's just going to have to live with it.

P.S. I don't think I've ever seen Clovis asleep.

It looks like Mickey will be forgiving OK in due time ... a bunny can only like stuff for so long at a time you know.

Sue: That's when you use the "bunny burrito" method, which is wrapping them up in a towel so they can't hurt themselves (or you) trying to escape. I've used it on Mickey a few times when I've needed him to hold still and he wasn't in the mood to cooperate.

RG: Oh, I know he'll come around, especially when there's treats to be had. :)
