It has been an interesting week…
When I last posted, I was in a bad place. I was feeling hurt and unloved. I kept a diary over the past week so you could see how I have suffered.
She kept coming close to me all night so I would chase her around the pen until she hid in the small red crate. I think they put that crate there so she could hide from me if she annoyed me too much. I made sure they knew I was unhappy by shaking the pen every now and then as well as making a thudding noise with my back feet. When the room got brighter they gave me my greens and I had to share them. She didnt each much of them though because she knew they were mine. They did not give me one single pat. No head rubs, no nothing. They were completely ignoring me.
They left the burrow and didn’t come back for a long time. In that time I stayed in my corner and she stayed in hers. We had an agreement.
A repeat of Monday, nothing good happened today. I got tired of chasing her though and so when she came close to me I would just look the other way. I don’t understand what I did to be put in this situation and am not impressed.
I gave in. I groomed her head. Just a little. She kept putting her head under my chin. She smelled nice. She really is quite a pretty girl. They made a funny noise when they saw and so I stopped. Now I only do it when they are not looking.
We sleep next to each other now. I lay in my side of the pen and she comes over and lays next to me. Maybe she is cold. They also made the pen bigger today, what a relief! Still no head pats though.
PATS! This morning when they woke up they fed us and then gave us both pets at the same time! It was amazing… I didn’t even mind sharing my human. I don’t mind the new rabbit, she is pretty nice to me and she gives me kisses. I kiss her back. Its pretty good.
They let us out of the pen! I showed her around the pad and we took turns marking our territory with our scent glands. I didn’t really mind her marking my things because she is now my girlfriend and you should always share with your girlfriend.
They only let us out for a small time but it made me feel like things weren’t going to be so bad after all. Things were turning out pretty good.
The pen is gone, and I am able to relax wherever I like. We snuggle together every now and then but mostly we just stay within eyes view of each other and play together in the cardboard castle. Everything’s coming up Obi.
