Phineas Settling In
Phineas is settling into our household beautifully – the three ‘gents lounging around:
Phineas has a penchant for digging and occasionally nipping my knee and couch. But every bun has his quirks. We’re trying to curb this bad behavior with a tried & true method of ‘water squirts’ from my water bottle.
He and Quincy bonded after 3 days – which is a record! Quincy was desperate for more bunny lovin’ after poor Baxter passed away. I’m so happy that Quincy is just as happy & frisky as he can be with his new bro, Phineas.
What’s even more wonderful is that Quincy has been showing me even more affection since we’ve adopted Phineas. It makes my day when Quincy hops over to me asking for some head scritches! (Phineas hops to me for pets regularly as did Baxter… Quincy just assumes you’ll always go to him instead of the other way around.)
Phineas is a young, 1.5 year old bun and is as frisky and curious as can be. He’s the adventure bun of the house. He’s always scaling the back of the couch – running at full speed – hopping into my garbage can – you name it.
Phineas even plays with toys. Playing with toys for buns means throwing an item down on the ground, picking it up and throwing it down again. It’s quite entertaining to watch. My mom recently gave us a large Brussels sprout stalk (and leaves) to take home to the buns. They’ve been enjoying it more than words can say.
I’ve had to set a timer, to how long they can munch for, since Quincy would gorge himself to the point of uncomfortable. (5 minutes is the max)
Not too shabby of a video from my iphone, no?!
And lastly, this is Phineas taking a nap.
It always freaks Felix out to see Phineas laying like this – he always thinks the worst. But I snagged this photo while he (Phineas) was sleeping through a horribly loud thunderstorm a few weeks back – he’s totally a domesticated bun! heh
Hope you love the bunny update! Videos are the best and really show how spunky this little guy can be. Hope to nab some more in the future for you all. Cheers!
