||Five months old|
(Hops for short) is a recent addition to my home. He's an absolute
sweetie and very patient, although a little timid with people but we think
his eyesight isn't great as he startles really easily. He loves running
around (oh boy is he fast!) and exploring, especially if it means he gets to
climb or crawl over something. He jumps and binkys all over the place,
sometimes into walls and sometimes into my other rabbit, Dusty. Our second
time meeting him he binky'd into her and she only grunted before hopping off,
so we knew than and there we had to adopt him! Any rabbit that Dusty didn't
attack was going to do fine with us.
When I adopted him he was just a little bit smaller than Dusty, now he's
double her size at 3.2kg, and he's only five months old! I don't know how big
he's going to get but I can't wait to see. It's funny watching her boss him
around and he just sits there. He's very mature for a teenage bunny, has only
destroyed the one cord I left laying around. Not too destructive with all
those growing boy hormones! He loves his toys that he can pick up and throw
around, especially the ones with bells. Hops also loves Dusty, from day one he
wanted to snuggle up with her and he would beg her for kisses all the time
(she took offense at that). He would also try hiding under her. He still
tries to hide under her or behind her when things startle him but it doesn't
work so well because I can still see him.
He was mostly white except for a light grey spot on his nose when I got him
but that's been changing as he grows. His ears and nose are getting a darker
grey and I think they match Dusty quite well. It looks like all the kisses
he's given her face has turned his nose grey!
