squeaky and hymie LOVE their new room....they cannot take their eyes off the 2 aviaries and their feathered occupants. i have put clipping locks on the birds doors just in case but please be careful going in and out because those cats are very interested in our little birds!
champ is not thrilled to lose his office...but the new area is more appropriate for his arthritis and he will get used to it soon.
dusty and lucky are glad reggie got the boot.
reggie is not too sure.
sweetpea likes her new window and chief and ebony are maybe a little less freaked out...but not a whole lot.
and i wanted to update you on our new bunnies...anthony hopkins and thumperina (who louise now wants to change to bunessa redgrave)...
those rabbits were so traumatized in that store...people were always trying to touch them, to pet them..they kept opening their cage doors and sticking their hands in. each time i saw them, they were shrunk, tight up into a corner with their ears flat to their head...i saw them 4 different times over that few days and they were always the same...petrified.
i have been watching them this week...their ears are up, they are moving around their cages..they look happier, more relaxed, more secure. part of that is the other rabbits...they know they are there and they are not afraid so it must be safe. but the biggest part of it is...being around and cared for by humans who at least understand that an animal in a cage in a public place feels extremely vulnerable...they don't want to be touched, they don't want to be friends, they don't want you to look at them and tell them how cute they are......they want you to just walk by and leave them alone.
those bunnies had been living there since september...bunnies do not belong in cages up for sale and then discounted to free...do not support businesses that sell live animals...it is not only cruel but the animals are purchased by anyone...not just people who will give them good homes...but irresponsible people too.
