Furball FridayJuly 29, 2011 - Author: Michy
Speaking of fur balls, my cat has gifted me with at least two of those in the last couple weeks. They are just great. Slimy and gross and surrounded by what I can only assume is a cat’s version of stomach acid. Doesn’t that sound nice? Thankfully, his retching has all taken place on the tile floor, not on any furniture or carpeting. And, you will be happy to know, I did not take any pictures to share with you all. Instead, you can just enjoy a cute video of Pumpkin the bunny rabbit!
Pumpkin has continued to amuse me with her antics. She has now discovered that she can jump up onto that bed in the guest room, and it is her new favorite thing to hop up there and bounce around. She just runs back and forth doing binkies sometimes, and it’s great fun to watch.
Tumbles, meanwhile, has grown more and more confident around the bunny. He is no longer running from her. He now chases her all around and chews on her playfully – though sometimes I warn him off when it seems to become too rough. He also explored the inside of Pumpkin’s cage once, and he frequently sticks his head inside for a drink of water when the cage door is open.
I wonder what they’re going to do next! I would like to see Pumpkin start to stick up to Tumbles a little bit more, maybe charge at Tumbles sometimes and make him realize he can’t just do whatever he wants. The more I have to intervene between them, the more Tumbles is going to want to play rough. The good news is, we now have an x pen for Pumpkin! I haven’t set it up yet, but once I do, it will give her a portable play space that Tumbles won’t be able to get into and she won’t be able to get out of, which will enable me to let her out of her cage sometimes without constantly being there to supervise playtime. Hooray!
