Ozzie Is In The House

On Saturday we picked up our first foster rabbit. We'll be taking care of Ozzie until Bunny Lu Adoptions can find him a permanent home. He's still in the settling-in stage and rather jumpy, but so far he's eating and using his litter box normally, so it looks like it'll be ok. As you can see, Ozzie is pure white with haunting "ruby" eyes.

Rachael fell in love with Ozzie when she was home for Christmas break, and would like nothing better than for us to bond him into a group with our other two, Fred and Java.

One thing is certain, Ozzie is a lovable guy. If you hold your hand out to him, he'll put his head under your fingers so that you can scratch behind his ears. He wasn't too sure about the dogs at first, which was driving Trix crazy. Trix loves the rabbits even though they don't act like dogs, I believe that he thinks they're retarded puppies. Because Ozzie was so skittish, tonight was the first night that they've been in close contact. We expanded the pen so there was some running -around room, then Trix and I went in and lay down and waited quietly. Before long Ozzie came up to us to check things out, and he and Trix sniffed each other a bit. Trix mostly stayed on his belly, dragging himself around by his front legs so that he was on the same level as Ozzie. I've never seen anything like it. Within an hour Trix and Ozzie were laying side by side on the floor, just chillin'.

So far, this foster bunny thing is working a-ok.

If my count is correct, the Rocket Jones household now consists of 1 dog, 2 humans, and 3 rabbits.
Clearly, the balance of power has shifted to those with four legs and fur.

Sounds a lot like mine and Nic's house.

2 dogs!

Yep...two legs bad, four legs good. It's just a matter of time.

Happy belated Valentine's Day!

Sure, bunnies are cute but they're also really good eatin'.

That's all I know.

Hey Ted, I've always thought rabbits were cool; but I knew a guy who had one and its cage stunk up the entire room it was in. Do you have stink problems with all those bunnies or what? And when you say litter box, does that mean they're housebroken?

Shank, yeah, the rabbits are housebroken. We've got a kind of litterbox made of aluminum, designed so that two sections of folded newspaper fit side by side in the bottom. We put a kitty litter liner in the bottom, a couple sections of newspaper, and then a grid goes over it all so the poop drops through. We clean 'em every two days, which takes about 5 minutes total, although we could probably go three days without a problem.

The nice thing about rabbits is that they're self-cleaning like cats. They don't like to be dirty. If something stinks, it's either their pee (way too long between litter box changes), or something medical is wrong. They eat mostly hay, so their poop is hard little pellets. It's like picking up spilled cocoa puffs if they miss the litter box (they'll sometimes poop to mark their territory).

Frankly, I cant even believe you people spend your time worrying OR commenting on all this CRAP! Celebritieswhat a waste of timeWHO CARES!! Shell probably be divorced in another two or three years anyway. Lives of the rich and famouswhat overly dramatic waste of time! I watch their movies (most of them suck, particularly in the last 5 years or so), and then I go on with life feeling like they dont deserve to make what they do and wish they would do something worth while in Hollywood, rather than put out crappy movies that arent worth the gas consumed in going to see them, and gaining all sorts of publicity in their lives with BIG rings that really dont mean a THING at the end of the day, because VOWS really dont mean a thing to the rich and famous. Again, what a waste of time. You guys should find something with while to do with your time! This is the first time Ive ever commented on one of these blogs, in my entire life. I can honestly say that I would be ashamed of myself if this is the way I chose to spend my time. Hey Jessica, good luck, but Im sure Ill be reading about you again soon, in the divorce sectionjust like the rest of you clowns in Hollywood. What a JOKE
