    Default A funny thing happened today......

    Well, Henry bun has decided that he's now bored with the kitchen/diner area, and the living room where he sits in the evening with wifey-bun, and the garden with it's shady areas and ample grass. Nope, Henry has decided that our 'warren' must have more areas to explore, so, whilst I was at work and the O/H was at home catching up with a few things, she suddenly hears this 'bump' upstairs. So she goes to see what the comotion is all about and who should she see bounding up the stairs but.......Henry the explorer......


    And, having conquered the stairs, he proceeds to explore the whole new world of upstairs in our warren.


    Unfortunately my O/H didn't get a photo of him bounding downstairs but assures me he just confidently faced down the stairs and went for it.
    I don't know where Henry has developed this sudden urge to explore the house, but now he knows there's a whole new world upstairs, I am pretty sure I know where he will head off for. Just when you think you have a handle on things, the little tinkers go and throw you a curve ball.

    Oh Craig - it had to happen, didn't it?

    Having had multiple groups of buns in the house over the years, I now have a stair gate at the top. Really funny to see a bun reach the stair gate and peer through, wanting to explore further

    Oh it must be brilliant to have rabbits free ranging around the house (rabbit proofed of course)! I am sure my dogs would love it ...

    Haha he will definitely be up there all the time now!

    Archie is exactly the same. He once escaped up the stairs, we have a stair gate and he knocked it down. Now any opportunity he has, he zooms up there to check out his warren and scent everything. He particularly likes under our bed. Every night he sits and looks through the gate and I imagine him plotting his next escape!

    Pip has never made it past the top stair for some reason.

    It's funny, because my bunnies live upstairs - they are always trying to come down.

    Millie and Toby used to play in the lounge together then run up the stairs at the speed of lightning when they wanted to go to bed!

    Bonded bunnies bring out the confidence in each other to explore don't you think?

    Super duper cute pictures! Hillian

    Archie the super-hero?
    But do I remember you have those semi-permanent gates? (thinking back to my stairgate thread...)

    He is surprisingly strong! It's a pressure gate but made of mesh. Sometimes it's not fitted quite right so he can headbutt it down. Lol

    OH just reminded me of when we first got it cos he kept escaping as soon as we opened the lounge door. He jumped straight into it as if it wasn't there and bounced back like a trampoline.

    We've never laughed as hard as that night. Was hilarious. He looked so confused.

    My indoor rabbits live upstairs too. We have a meshed child gate at the top. Out of all 5 indoor rabbits, the only one to try their luck and head downstairs? Only Morningstar, the one who can't actually see! She knows her way round the whole house, knows where the guinea pig pellets are stored, knows where we keep the open bag of rabbit pellets. Oh, and now the weather is warmer, if we don't shut the gate properly and leave the back door open, she'll happily follow you outside.

    A few months ago, a pair of police officers came knocking, looking for leads following a house break-in on the street. As I'd rushed downstairs to answer the door, I didn't shut the gate properly. Lo and behold, Miss Morning was sitting partway down the staircase, looking completely innocent and sweet. I ended up with police officers who were very concerned about letting the rabbit out.

    Moral of the story? You can't keep a determined rabbit down. Have fun finding him upstairs all the time now!

    When I went to the forage day last year, Twigs said that her rabbits chase her up to bed and stand guard on the landing. It sounds as though you are being well trained by them! I'm totally jealous of those of you with house rabbits, I'm almost tempted to get rid of hubby so that I could have house bunnies.
