Deeder adores Billy, Carly’s crazy about him too. As for Billy’s thoughts on the children, I think he’d prefer for them to be on the outside of the cage and himself on the inside. He senses the possible harm they could cause him, but as yet both parties have been farely respectful of each other.
I’m really glad that Darren doesn’t seem to mind having a rabbit in the house–if Billy were outside we certainly wouldn’t be getting to know him as well as we are with him right in our main traffic area.

Funny things that have happened so far…

Deeder kissing Billy right between the eyes and saying, “I love you, Biwwy” Deeder likes getting in the cage and laying on his belly, face to face with Billy, softly stroking the bunny’s head and whispering sweet little nothings. This is what I wanted, a friend for Deeder to love and cherish. If we take good care of Billy, he should see the good old age of 10 years.

Second funny moment:
When I got home last night from an outing with my mom I noticed Billy behaving differently. Someone had forgotten to close the shades on the sliding glass door and since it was dark outside the door was causing a reflective effect to the nearby Billy. He was looking directly at what I assume he thought was another male bunny and repeatedly thumping his hind feet down on the floor of his cage as rabbits do when trying to assurt dominance and scare away an intruder.
I think we might have a real watch bunny on our hands! As soon as I’d closed off the reflection by shutting the blinds Billy settled down in his litter box (which he believes to be a bed) and went to sleep.

Here’s a video of Billy enjoying his cage this morning after a cleaning. I noticed that the cage was stinky that evening that I arrived home to find Billy busy chasing away his shadow.
Perhaps male bunny’s use peepee smell to mark territory like tom cats do. That should all stop when we get Billy neutered next month.

Anyway, enjoy the video. This is our Billy Boy…

    He comes to “Billy” so we figure that there isn’t much of a choice. :P
