Monday Mario

It may not be apparent from the picture, but Mario's neck was craned in impossible angles to allow him to pick some hay out of the litter box (all four of his paws were on the ground).  It would have been much easier for him to hop in and have a bite.  Little bum.

An update to the digging saga:  Mario seems to have calmed down. He has always liked to dig a little in the mornings and has gone back to digging fruitlessly in the corner of his ex-pen.  Win for me.  With the cover on the box he sometimes gets dig-happy in the litter box, but much less consistently than before.  When he first got his covered litter box he loved to dig in the hay (which caused big messes both in his cage and on himself). Nowadays when he does dig with the cover on, he is scratching at the actual inside of the cover, high up in the corner.  I still sometimes have to take the cover away from him, but much less than before.  Just the fact that the new litter box has higher sides than the old one helps to keep the hay inside better.

MARIO!!!!!! Animals are so funny sometimes, Zoey sometimes does very awkward things that she could do a lot less awkwardly.

How is your bod holding up post-Big Sur??!!

Funny Mario, doing things the hard way!

That looks completely normal to all of us. Why get all the way in? It's more fun to make the human slaves crazy wondering why the heck we don't!

He is a funny boy. It is amazing how long a rabbit's neck can get!

That's a good idea! We have the same litter box for the cat because she loves to fling litter around, but I never though of trying one for the buns... My two love to dig as well. Silly rabbits!

Very cute. Ah, the never-ending saga of the bunnies! My favorite is when Taz is too lazy to get up to eat so he lays next to his food dish and stuffs his face while sprawled out.

Comfortable is a different concept to humans and rabbits - ask me how I know!
Digging... oh well, it seems as if Miss Eve has now gone past a digging phase. Let's hope it lasts...

That looks like one of the Phys. Therapy gyrations I have!

Goldy digs away at the vinyl floor in her condo quite often. I always think she is trying for China. It does keep her nails down!
