Bunny Update: ToughPuff

So, turns out the pet shop was wrong and my bunny is a boy! I’ve decided to call him ToughPuff since he didn’t let his fractured shoulder get in the way of his rabbiting around. He got more and more adventurous as his shoulder healed up, which of course then worried me when he gets into spaces he’s not supposed to….. ( -___-“)

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 14.25.11Since I brought him home 2 months ago, he’s had to endure at least 15 hours of car rides, get snipped and also tried to hump Beans!I don’t think he was successful though.. So while I was away, Puff was being bunnysat at Beansy’s place.Because they were both not fixed, they had to alternate exercise time. When it was Puffy’s turn, he dashed out and started honking about. Shortly after, Beans jail broke and enticed Puffy to hump her! Dandelion quickly broke them apart, and reckons Puff didn’t get to finish. Phew!Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 14.02.49

After I came back into town, I took Puff to his neuter appointment in Sapporo (ハーティ動物病院). Turns out he also has malocclusion. However, he managed to break one of his bottom incisors.

It’s been about 2 weeks since his snip, and he’s recovered well. Still full of attitude and stubborn as ever. But he’s been eating alot more! He finishes almost all his veggies now and been munching on hay! Yay! Though, not enough for a house bunny… But he’s definitely put on some healthy weight.

My excitment is short lived, because about 2 days ago, I noticed he wasn’t eating hay again, even after I change it to fresh ones. He would only eat soft small pieces if I hand fed him. Today, I noticed he has broken that same incisor again! I’m going to have to talk to the vet about incisor removal during his post op check up on Monday… This is going to be tough in Japanese…… ( >__<!)

Mocha Beans

To bunnies lovers everywhere, please do not judge that I did not adopt. I tried very hard to find a shelter in Sapporo, even reaching out to contact shelters in Tokyo for any links/leads. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any. Hence, my decision to purchase.

After dropping my folks off at CTS, I headed into Sapporo for some bunny hunting. I met a few cool bunnies. Some of them clicked more with dandelion than me. The last stop was the PetLand at Sapporo Factory. They had a bunch of 1 month of kits, one of them looked like Eddy from bunnymama!

Anyways, dandelion and I were hungry so we decided to wait till tomorrow and fill up our tummies instead.

The next day (Saturday), I headed to Esta in Sapporo Station by myself cause I saw a little liondude on Monday, when I took my folks shopping in the big S city. On Monday, the sign said that it was a boy and is 13,000yen

I decided on this little buddy, because a) price, b) age. But on Saturday, the sign had changed to a girl and is 14,000yen! Nevertheless, I asked to carry her and she didn’t struggle, my heart was won over!

I brought her back to dandelion’s place and set up beansy’s old playpen.

Dandelion and I may have been too ambious and excited, that lead us to poor bunny parenting… We let mocha out to roam and beans was cool with it for a little.. But then began to give chase and bit her butt and wouldn’t let go. Twice. And I think it’s during this battle that mocha hurt her left front paw as she is not using it at all. I’m trying to schedule a vet appointment, hopefully the vets in the town will be able to diagnose her without me having to go to Sapporo. I am the blorst.

Anyways I brought mocha home today and she began to settle in after a few hours. Not so skittish anymore, she gave me a couple flops, a few binkys AND some stomps! I’m in love xD
