Jupiter is officialy adopted

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

And apparently he's nearly two years old. He said they found him about a year and a half ago as a little baby bunny wandering around in Eugene. He used to be a house bunny. They used to have two house bunnies but Jupiter was never as well trained to the litter box as the other. He's had a couple accidents outside of his cage but now that I know a bit more about bunnies they weren't really acidents and with some work on my part we can learn to avoid them. Plus neutering will help as most of it is marking.

They currently had been letting him hop around the nursery out back of their store. Which is all closed off except for one spot they found. Makes it sound like an accident but here's the thing. He said Jupiter's been escaping for a couple months now but has always returned before. He said he called once and got no answer so figured who ever found him could keep and enjoy him. He said I could still return him if I didn't want to deal with him but said I'd like to keep him now since he grew on me.
I wasn't planning to at first. In part because my father said no more animals other than my tamandua once he gets here. But he's the one who first started saying I could keep him if I wanted. So I let him into my heart. So Jupiter has an apointment to be nutered Tuesday.
Jupiter likes everyone here too. He even tried grooming Q&H. First his started licking Hyzzie and she looked shocked then her lip started twitching so I moved him away. Later he tried grooming Quasi but he took it worse. He snraked and snapped at him. Neither knew what to make of this thing licking them. Hyzzie might get used to it but Quasi is a little grump and never even let Hyzzie groom him. They all seem to want to get along but bunnies and puppies don't speak the same language. But they'll learn to understand this little alien thing eventualy.

oh no :(

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:


My dad went down to the garden shop, to see if they had any sod to use in Jupiter's cage. Well, turns out jupiter is there's. Apparently they had him in a litte yard with a three foot wall and he got out. They say they saw the ad and tried to call. I did put my shop number instead of my cell but it's been nearly two weeks since it was in the paper so they can't have wanted him back to bad. They did tell my dad I could keep him if I really wanted. He is a remarkably well socialized bunny so they did good with him but will want to keep him. Hopefully they are open toarrow and I'll go speak with them. They're nice enough people but two kids and just got a crazy lab puppy and as pointed out above they didn't try vary hard to get their bunny back.
It's really remarkable he made it all the way to my shop. It's at least a mile down the busy highway but on the same side so at least he didn't have to cross.

Fall hike in the woods

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:


Well it was sunny today. Was a shock to wake up and have it light outside. Q&H took a nice morning walk then we drove to a hiking trail and took a walk in the woods. This one went right along the river. Was a real hiking trail leaves all over the path rocks and lots of ups and down and even some washed out places. They found some nice smells marked a few things even went over a small wooden bridge. Unfortunatly I forgot my camera(pick from previouse hike on groomed trail) but it was still worth sharing. Some canandian geese flew by. Heard some birds and squirrels and crows but saw no deer. think Q&H smelled them but with the leaves you couldn't see any tracks. Hyzzie was more cautiouse than normal with it being a more wild trail so once she started looking worried asked if she wanted to turn around and she did a sharp u-turn. On the trip back those crow and squirrel noises became monster sounds in her mind and she got jumpy. She didn't feel safe again till in the car. She's got a vivid imagination. All are napping now and i'm tempted too it was sunny but still cold so it made me sleepy.

It's like having a puppy

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

Now that Jupiter has settled in. He has peed and pooped on my bed and in Q&H's playpen/bed thing. He messed his own whcker bed, everyone knows about that, he sliced through my mic cable below. One bite and right through. Gotta keep electricle cables well out of his reach


He was flippiung up the pee pads and chewing them so put a board over them for now on that side. He also chewed some teeth off of my sleeping bag.
Then he started chewing up his towle in his bed.
bye-bye towel, hello newspaper. Guess it's time to break down and get this boy some hay.
Newspapers not to bad, at least he seemed to like it and made a nest
Hyzzie saw Jupiter chewing on the new's paper and assumed it was food so was asking for some.

oops

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

So I have crickets for sale in the store for people's reptiles and fish. Well I had the clever idea to stick them in giant plastic bags. It worked well easier to catch them when people bought them. Well, the crickets were more clever than me and chewed a whole in the bag. I didn't even know till a couple kids buying rat food pointed out a couple escapees. Arg there were crickets everywhere. I know I didn't catch them all either.

okay so it's not about me

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

Changed the name of my blog since it's not about me. It's more of a photo album scrap book mostly.

so bunny was a naughty bunny. Eww. He's been hiding this under the cushion till he left it flipped over this morning. For those who aren't sure yes that's normal bunny pee color. Guess I'll have to try filling the top with litter now too.
Okay a cute bunny pic to make up for that :P
Might make a seperate blog for more spersonal stuff seperate from the scrap book, hmm

Vet trip

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

Took Jupiter to the vet today. He's in excelent health and a year or less old. she said to give him a couple weeks to settle in then we can neuter him. He even went on a little trip around the clinic with the vet just so overyone got to see him. The educated guess as to breed is dutch-netherland cross. He's just over four pounds.

I treid to pick up some frozen mice for my store while down there but got lost and didn't want to keep the bunny locked up any longer so gave up and headed back up the hill so will work something out for the mice next week. Unfortunatly I'm the sort not to stop and ask dirrections did call but got a machine so next week.

So then pictures.Since Jupiter likes to use the wicker bed as an outhouse we filled it with dog litter and made him this bed for his favorite corner. He does seem to like it. I love when he sighs and just flops down on his side and stetches out.
Quasi missed his fake rock bowl of water so gave it back and bunny now has his own special cage bowls.
Bunny is a dare devil and likes to get up high. He hops in and out of the top of the bed on his own.
He also finaly hopped the foot board of the bed and got into the stuffed play pen Q&H sleep in. He then hopped from there into their clothing basket.Hyzzie steals some bunny kibble.
