AN OUTSIDE HOME ....

Long ago, BR (before rabbits), this area of our big deck had a nice little overhang, just big enough for the BBQ! We got thick glass from old sliding doors and framed it in along the deck rails to provide a nice wind break. A great table and comfortable chairs too. Perfect all-weather grilling arrangement.

But now there is this big double-decker cage set-up built there. Zoey is in the lower checking it out. Some of our bunns lived in there in the summers. Each cage has a big wooden-framed, slide-out pan under it for easy cleaning. There is a nice fan in the upper and a string of colored chili-pepper lights along the top! Very posh and cozy. I grill outside in the dark yard, wind, and rain.

And these beauties are currently unoccupied, all the bunns having weaseled their way into Bunny Lady's heart and house. So I guess they are still here for backup or emergencies. Baxter and Zoey do spend most nice days outside in this area, so that is why the door is tied open ... they go in there from time to time. Especially Zoey. When it is time to come in the house, she often hops in there, way back in the corner, and then guess who gets down on hands and knees and sticks his head in and reaches back in there ... thank goodness Z-Bob does not bite and actually loves to be gotten and brought in for a nice session of lap-time. She just likes playing "hard-to-get!"

Still no Spring to report on .......... it snowed again some - in fact, it is clunking on the roof right this moment!!

Very clever bun house carpentry (and LOL about now having to grill in the dark). I could use your expertise, since I'm having to cobble together the new bunny compound with stuff that's available at the pet store and feed store. Argh--small car and no ability with tools! But we're getting there--pictures later this week.

Very nice... you could almost say you've got bunny apartments!

And as for spring, I feel for you - it was 19 degrees out last night. That's Fahrenheit, not Celsius, just in case anyone was confused.

Spring... what a joke!

Zoey looks quite content in there! I'm picturing Rabbit Guy on hands and knees coaxing her out of the corner =:-)
