More than cute,each of them has such different personalities. Betty is much less scared of noises than Barney. He jump vertically at oises(rather funnily!!)and then scarpers to some corner.He has found areas that havent been cleaned properly under sofas etc to squeeze into.Once his he returned with a reall dirty ehad full of dust.He has managed to crawl under the bed,to a point of no mans land.(ie: Cannot be reached with a broom from either side of the bed!)He returned looking like Laurel and hardy,after a comic construction escapade. Betty on the other hand is much calmer.She also has a varied appetitie.Whereas barney sticks to greens and rabbit feed,Betty likes apples,bread,rusks,indian chappati etc.I am trying to get Barney to improve his range of food also but it is proving difficult.
As for training, I sometimes think I have succeeded in getting them to litter on a folded piece of cloth.Infact,daily,I c more and more visits to teh place and remenants left behind.Bett seems to like a shag pile floor mat.But when I hide that, she goes on the correct place.I have tried to rabbit proof my rooms with netting,but have intentionally left under the bed etc.available so they feel safe and have a place to hide. The worst thing is getting them out of there at night,when it is time for them to go into their home for bed.The long time I have to bend and crouch under the bed to coax them out is playing havoc with my back.(But I must admit I love it!!)
I am finding it difficult to discipline them.At times I have found my self scolding them as one would a little child,before realising what I was doing.They just give me(especially Barney) those big Bunny eyes and I can no longer b angry at them?/I think they know that and use it whenever they can!!
I hope they grow up to be well brought up and socially responsible adults...(there I go again treating them like children...)
