Brutus arrived 11 days before Christmas, on December 14th, 2014, in the early afternoon. It was a HUGE surprise to me and I kinda freaked out with excitement. BOL. I have seen lots of bunnies before, but only wild ones around our neighbourhood. They always run away from me as I walk by, so to have one come in to my house was something I had never even dreamed of before!
For the first few days Brutus stayed in his cage while we all got to know each other. The kitties were allowed to meet him almost right away and my humans made the room a cat and bunny only room so they could all hang out together, but I had to wait until I was ready.
During the first week I was extremely excited around my new baby brother and would whine and wiggle and roll over in front of his cage every time I was allowed in his room. I also tried to share things with him and would bring him my toys, including my giant stuffie Frog.
My humans spent the first week teaching me appropriate manners around bunnies, such as no attempting to shove Frog in to his cage.
By week two, I had stopped my excited whines whenever I could hear Brutus hopping around having fun, and learned to lie by his cage quietly. Brutus would always hop over and sniff me through the fence. He is a very social and relaxed little guy.
By week three, I was ready to meet Brutus face to face…
…And I was so proud of myself afterwards that I pranced around the house continuously asking my humans for snuggles, since I did earn them after all. BOL.
Brutus and I hang out all the time now, and it’s pawsome! *nubby wags* (But only when our humans are home with us, of course!)
The kitties and Brutus eat their meals together and when I am finished mine I go hang out with them in their room and wait for them to finish. One of the first times I joined them, I decided to try and fit in Brutus’ cage. I was a little big… BOL. (above right)
So now that we have all got to know each other and whenever our humans are at home, Brutus is allowed out of his cage to roam the house as he pleases. He has yet to venture outside of his room, but the door is open for when he is ready.
Welcome to the pack, Brutus!
