Ozzie = Attitude

I've mentioned how our rabbit Ozzie is the poster critter for animal ADHD. I've never met a creature strung so tight, with the ability to startle himself just sitting still.

Now supposedly, rabbits love this game where you take a toilet paper tube and put a treat inside, and then stuff the ends with hay. The bunny will joyfully dig and chew and play until they get to the goody inside.

Not Oz.

I made it simple. Piece of dried pineapple, TP roll with ends *slightly* folded over. Maybe 30 seconds chewing work to get the treat.

It's been in Ozzie's cage for a week. He knows the pineapple is inside, he just refuses to go for it. I tried again this afternoon, and he stood over it and gave me an evil glare. I think he'd rather play the game where he just randomly destroys something of mine and then I give him a piece of goddam pineapple.

Or he could be wondering what's inside YOU.

Maybe Oz is a Vorpal Bunny

lol. BTW, you know about Disapproving Rabbits, yes? Perhaps he's got a few choice expressions that would make it to that blog.

(yes I am catching up on you tonight.)
