Clovie Day

While I was away on family matters Clovis' needs got placed on the back burner.  So yesterday was Clovie Day.  I spent the greater part of Saturday doing things just for him.  We started with our weekend morning coffee and paper together time while Clovie ate his breakfast, then drove to his monthly tooth and toenail trim with Dr. Heather.  When we got home, I addressed the mites with a dose of Revolution.  Then I washed all of his bedding, rugs, his cage, and gave his room a good cleaning while he roamed the house.  

When Clovis was little I was looking at bunny stuff online and saw the cardboard condos you could buy for about $25.  I'm a little on the cheap side (and I have the "I could make that" attitude/flaw) so I decided to build my own.  It was quite a project but I was proud of my results. Well, after 4 years and a lot of wear and tear I figured Clovis was due for a new condo so I went to work.  He hasn't really embraced it yet but I expect he will be chewing the doors off in no time, especially after his teeth have grown a few centimeters.

At the end of the day Clovis got a good meal, a few oats with his pellets, more time to roam the house, and blueberries when I tucked him in.  Not a bad day for a bun. And I felt good (and tired) at the end of Clovie Day.

Love the first photo: "Ah, it's good to be king."

That's a magnificent condo; can't wait to see the decorative touches Clovie will add to it. Sounds like he had a great day (although I'm sure he would have been willing to skip the pedicure and tooth trim part). :)

Too funny - this one made me chuckle about him chewing off the doors.

Happy Clovie Day Clovie!! it's always fun to to get a new house. The Spots took awhile to warm to the one they got last year or so, but then suddenly it was "THE THING"....

What a cool day!!! My buns are envious of that awesome bunny rug in the first pic.

That is a perfect replica of the cottontail cottage!!! I sure am impressed but then you're an artist! My buns do the same thing with snubbing new "furniture." Sometimes it takes months and then suddenly they're obsessed. or if they're in love at first, they're over it in a week or two.

My buns can never see Clovis' very special castle. They get two Dell computer boxes taped together with badly shaped holes in them ... They have to chew their own windows! hahaha! But, they go through them almost two per month, so I couldn't keep up with that if they also had to be pretty! :)
You do such a good job taking care of your Clovis! That makes me happy! I'm sure he's glad to be getting rid of the mites, or whatever was "bugging" him!
