Ear buddies

We humans hope someday that we could show affection in a similar way, hugging with our ears.

The water boy

Magnus and his mother, Vanna, always get the urge to drink at the same time. It results in this cute dog pile effect where they are constantly climbing over each other to take turns at the bottle.

A Magnus sandwich

While working at the computer, I like to have a bunny sit near me in a box. Here Magnus gets wedged in the corner by his buddy, Stitch.

Exploring the prairie

One of Kiwi's unnamed takes a short jaunt while one of the kittens stands watch.

It's Jaws!

With her beady little black eye, gray fur with white underside, and her ravenous appetite, does she not remind you of a great white shark? Kiwi lunges for this carrot like it is her last one.

Under sea adventure!

Stitch pops his head out of the drawer to check out the surroundings, including Zippy in the fish tank.

A flash of white

JD's body is black but when you get him out in the sun, his white belly is blinding.

"Can we keep him, Mama?"

Today we found a turtle in the driveway. When I tried to show it to Mochi, he just hopped right in the box.

"I'll admit your skills have improved..."

"...But that doesn't mean I have to like it."
JD checks out Mom's latest mosaic piece.

A walking eater

Magnus is like a lawn mower, gnawing up pieces of grass as he moves through the blades. As opposed to his uncles who like to rip up long stalks and then devour them wood chipper-style.

Exploring the front yard

I enjoy taking the little ones out in the front yard lately, where we have no fence. The babies are too shy to just dart off like the adults do, and the kittens naturally round up the rabbits like a sheepdog would.

Keeping clean in the dirt

Dad likes to joke that Ickus has a compulsive cleaning habit.

Sleepy eyes

Stitch is the most active and the strongest of the litter, but always has such a lazy face when he is sitting still.

"Play time is over? Already?"

Magnus gets picked up and carried back inside.

"We've been caught!"

Stitch and Magnus sit in their plastic box, snacking on a few spare pellets.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

"Are the puddles gone yet?"

Tumble, one of the babies from Rumble and Kiwi's litter, goes exploring outside.

Magnus: Future lifeguard

Magnus takes on a solemn duty, even as a youngster. Most kids want to play in the pool but he wants to adopt some serious responsibility.

"Where'd the front yard go?"

We had some heavy rains a few days ago and now Ickus's walking ground is a marsh.

"I just laid 100 eggs!"

We currently have a bunch of glass stones, so we put JD in a bin with them to see what he would do. We figured he would dig, but he really did not know what to make of it all.

Magnus goes for a ride

Thursday, September 9, 2010

"This stone looks pretty good..."

"...For me to poop on!"
JD does not appreciate Mom's new mosaic hobby.

Jane! Stop this crazy thing!

You know your bunny babies are growing fast when they don't fit into a monster truck.

Time to go bowl shopping

The Kiwis are by far our largest consumers. I remember when Kiwi used to be a relaxed muncher. Now she devours everything as if it were a competition.

Hugs does laundry

No, Hugs. The hot cycle doesn't shrink you to dwarf size and the dryer sheets don't make you bouncier.

Sunday, September 5, 2010

"I love friends"

Oh Magnus loves everyone and always wants more friends. Thank goodness he doesn't have a facebook.

"I will not tolerate this humiliation."

Vanna gets dressed in small dog wear.

Friday, September 3, 2010

"OMG! My Hair!"

Vanna wins the 'Widest Eyes' award tonight.

"Don't touch my boy!"

JD does not like Hugs. Mochi consistently intervened to keep JD from nipping at his son, Hugs, through the wire.

BUNder storm

It went from very sunny to very stormy today. This will be the first big thunderstorm for our litters. This photo was snapped right as the thunder clapped. The Chinchilla baby we have named Stitch, and he keeps a cool head. Magnus is restless and slightly alarmed.

Playing mirror

Mochi and Hugs re-enact that famous scene with Harpo and Lucy.

I love you Daddy!

We recently modified our outside exercise pen so that it is divided into sections. When Mochi and Hugs are out at the same time, they cannot stop visiting each other. Perhaps Mochi really does remember that this is his son, even though they were separated for a year and half.

One last innocent look...

...before that last bit of green gets devoured!
