Monday Mario

Last year I read about the awesome willow wreaths from Binky Bunny that the Big City Buns had loved.  They were already sold out when the blog post was up and I put my email in to be notified when they were back in stock.  A couple of weeks ago I got an email saying they were back in stock.  I swooped up two of them for Mario.

Day 1, He dug right in with no hesitation!

Day 2, He made quick work of the leaves and just had stems.

By about Day 4 he was down to just a couple circle twigs.  I got out of the shower one night and Boyfriend said, "Come quick! You have to see what Mario is doing."

Poor guy had gotten what was left of the wreath around his neck and couldn't get it off.

Boyfriend said he had been like that for about 10 minutes.

If I could just flip this...

I had time to snap a couple of photos before Mario successfully flipped it off his head.


It is a little hard to judge with all the stuff I'm putting in his eye, but I'd say it is probably about the same. Of course, you put in drops and ointment and the fur around his eye is always looking a little peculiar.  I've got another week or two of the current regimen before I analyze the next move.

Is the third eyelid red at all? I noticed with Benny, the bunny with teary eyes that I treated, the third eyelid was significantly reddish, and it seemed to clear up, but not until he'd been on both the antibiotic and antiinflammatory for about a week, maybe a little more.

What a great idea! I went to BinkyBunny and ordered one for Cadbury. Thanks!

I'm glad Mario got his fix before the wreaths ran out! That reminds me I need to hop over there and buy some!!!

I agree, bunnies always look odd with wet around their eyes. No news is good news I guess?

My Oh My ... go for willow twigs instead of cilantro! A major success!

I am shocked at how many of your followers have their own rabbits! I like you blog, but I am just stuck with a stinky ol poodle!

So cute!

I hope his eye gets better really soon, poor bunny.

Rare to find a treat that engages them for that length of time. Hope the eye regimen works.

So cute! Well at least we know he's feeling ok enough to play:) That eye isn't slowing him down too much!
