The Last Rabbit Standing

Well 2014 has not been a good year for the Warren.

Gordie, one of our males, hopped off to the Big Warren in the Sky the other night after being sick for a while. Gordie was probably the most socialized bunny; he didn't really like being picked up and petted, but he put up with it. Like all the bunnies he preferred getting his human attention/ear scratchies while safely on the ground. He'd been having problems for a while, so I guess it's for the best. Of course most of the pictures are from when they were small, before we separated them into separate cages and moved them all downstairs.

Hoping for treats

Exploring a box stuffed with hay
Here is a home movie my daughter made while learning some digital video stuff.

So now it's just Biggles, the last of the litter. He's always been the most aloof, but he's mellowed with age and I think he may start feeling a bit lonely without his annoying brother about. We had to keep them separate or they'd fight. Even after neutering and age, they still kept their distance.

The Warren is certainly more open after I removed the extra cages.

A lot of room for one bunny now!
There used to be four cages, stacked two high in the corners. When they were younger having the cages as pictured above would have been an invitation to jump up and over and escape. Plus the boys tried to attack each other through the bars, so having them up off the ground was necessary. Biggles however prefers to keep lower to the ground and under cover. Jumping up on top of things just makes you a target for predators after all.

A bag of hay is going to last a lot longer now.


  1. Sad news. We have 2 girls left out of our original 2+2.
