Despite proclaiming, “I would’ve never taken this rabbit home,” the new rabbit owner has proven to be just as cute as his cuddly companion. I just had to post this email chain between David and I:

haha funny little poop machine. we need to get him a litter box asap, start training him. its not very hard but we need to find his favorite place to poop. we could maybe get two cages, one for sleeping one for pooping and playing

we don’t need two cages, r u crazy? how would we ever go away if his litter box isn’t in his regular cage? anyway it’s fine:
Use a cage large enough to contain a small litterbox (along with bunny’s food and water bows, toys, etc.) and still allow enough room for the rabbit to stretch out. Place the box in the corner of the cage that he goes in. With a litterbox in the cage, when the rabbit is confined to his cage when you’re not home, cage time is learning time.

ok…I will try to go back to Lee pet. just finishing up a few projects and a blog post!

the thing needs to be able to run around and jump. if they only give store credit to lee pet that is fine too cuz he will need tons of hay. i wanted to maybe make him a play area like this… *Note* Must read this document to fully understand hilarity of this post.

hahaha good thing we are moving…perhaps the whole upstairs can just be a rabbit playground! I added a litter box to the cage that’s a plastic carry out container. now we know why he liked sitting in the bowl!

I have also included some photos of the one-week older Tutu, who has almost grown out of his rabbit leash already! Check out the photo where he’s asleep with his head on the computer.

And yes…we have a rabbit leash.
