Clovie's Halloween Dream

Happy Halloween!

Keen Sense of Smell

As is my usual Saturday routine, I sat with Clovis this morning reading my newspaper.  Today I brought in a glass of prune juice along with my coffee.  Rabbits must have a keen sense of smell because the minute I sat down with the glass of juice, Clovis was all over me, his little nose twitching like crazy, trying to get to the contents of my glass. Anything that smells sweet I guess.
When I was done with the juice I let him lick the last remaining drops.  I am wondering now if prune juice has the same effect on rabbits as humans...

Hide and Seek

I like to hide fruit in Clovie's breakfast. I cut it into pieces and spread it around on the plate then bury it with lettuce, carrot greens and parsley. The second I put down his plate he dives in nose first and the greens start flying. Messy! But Clovis always cleans up his mess.
Some days I give him two bunny bite treats, one banana and one carrot, as I am leaving for work. He eats one out of my hand and I throw the other one into the pile of hay at the top of his cardboard condo. I've always wondered how long it takes him to find it. I figured he finds it later in the day when he eventually makes his way up there for some hay. Ha! How silly of me. The other day as I was pulling out of my driveway I saw him up there munching on his treat, not a minute after I walked out the door. 
Smart boy.
