Today is the big day! Last night, I adjusted the cages so the top level is sturdier. I also cleaned up and got the main carrier and the backup carrier ready. Bugs got half of his daily pellet ratio earlier and will get the rest in the car. He also gets his dinner (veggies) around the time we are leaving so he will have those in the car also. He also allowed me to sleep a bit last night. When my alarm went off earlier, he jumped into my bed and gave me kisses and we snuggled for a while. I've been talking to Bugs and explaining what's going to happen tonight and then for the rest of his life. I read that it apparently helps him to understand, prepare, and adjust to the changes. Is this true? Can bunnies actually hear and know/understand what we're saying? I also taught Bugs the words pellets, vegetables, fresh hay, breakfast, dinner, treat, up, down, and we are working on spin. I accidentally taught him some of those, just by saying pellets during pellet time, vegetables during vegetable time, etc. I believe it has something to do with how when I talk to him, I use a different voice than when I'm talking to someone. When my sister and I are talking in my bedroom I will be talking in my normal voice and then switch to my bunny voice and he knows I'm talking to him directly and will stand and look at me. It's really amazing how smart and observant our bunnies are. They deserve much more credit then what some people give them.
