Good luck! You've got a lot going on with those bunnies right now. Hopefully Fenris recovery is uneventful, and you can get Tyra sorted with her issues. Nothing like getting the bunny butt to show how irritated they are with us 🤣
Freja is starting to get hormonal while Odin have choice war to mark my duvet when I’m not there.

I didn’t even have time to eat breakfast this morning because I had to clean. While Tyra was hiding the whole time, we are back on stage one with her again because I changed the bandage. She have stopped greating me and only hiding. While Fenris thought it was a good idea to jump out her cage when I was going to give her meds.

So it’s a lot going on with 4 buns in the family 😂

I had to put a cone onto Fenris as to make her stop licking around the shaved area of the spay incesions. The spay incesions is healing nicely but she have been over grooming herself. Which have started to make her fur become damp and even loosing a bit of fur. She can still eat and drink water but the cone stops her to groom herself. It’s better than nothing and it’s only temporary as to let the fur become dry and stop herself for over grooming.

Tyra sore hocks are healing and have become a light pink color. So they are heading into a better direction now.

Soon Freja have been with me for a week and she sleeps like a dead log. I really thought she was dead when I came home and saw her laying on the side. While Odin, Embla and Fenris was jumping all over the place because I got home, little Freja was sleeping deeply. I went up to her and saw the chest move up and down lightly. Knowing she was only sleeping I thought to take a picture of her cute sleeping position but I decided to not startle her. Instead I called her name, she slowly stretched and did a big yawn.

She always flops and is truly relaxed, I’ve been cleaning the room today, throwing my bed mattress around because somehow even with water proof cover they managed to pee so it got to the mattress under and not the one which was protected. It feels like they are planning their peeing attacks now. Freja didn’t react scared instead she watched me and jump towards the cage mesh as to get closer. She will be 10 weeks now.

Odin's such a mischievous little chap ❤

Poor Fenris, but it's for her own good. I'm glad aside from the over grooming, she's recovering well

That's great about Tyra! Sounds like what you're doing is working perfectly!

Not a bunny but here we have Loke, a stray cat my work colleague caught yesterday. I will be his foster home and if he fits with my buns I might adopt him. Truly a cuddly one and tomorrow he’s going to the vet.

I can finally notice that age is taking on Odin and he’s becoming less active as he was before (binkies & zoomies). He still love food but have mellowed down with his speedy personality.

He’s 5 years old and I can’t really know how old he will become. We have gone through over 20 gi stasis with Odin, so I always fear that the next one will be the last. I enjoy the time I have with him but I fear the day when I wake up in the middle of the night and he will no longer sleep near me. I’m going to book a health check up on Odin even though we was at the vet last month and they saw no problems with him.

Odin have been with me since the first time I moved out and nearly all my university years. He’s my small happy boy.

Bare in mind Freja who is a little over 3 months old have already outgrown Odin.

December is an expensive month this year. Today I’ve been to the vet twice, once with Loke to get his shots and it turned out that he also have an ear infection. So he’s getting antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammation ear drops. Because the test came out with both fungal infection and an bacteria infection.

Freja broke her front paw by getting a door closed on her, she have two fractures and have bandage + metacam. I had to put a funnel on Freja to stop her from taking off the wrapping on the leg. The vet told me the first week was important to keep it on while the funnel will be used when we can’t watch her and she will have breaks from it. She can eat and drink water with it.

While Tyra was spayed this week. Now it’s only Fenris that is 100% healthy. Sometimes things never goes as planned.

Since Odin passed away, we started to notice that Freja doesn’t react to sound like a normal bunny. She have hearing if you scream really loud but she won’t react to the sound of food and her ears doesn’t follow when a sound are being made. They follow if you she’s watching you. It was something we never noticed because of Odin.

But my whole family knows how to behave around a bunny with bad hearing because of Toste. So we incorporated the same routines for Freja and she stopped being easily startled.

Next week Freja will be spayed and the cone will be taken off tomorrow. She still have a few more weeks to go until her paw is fully healed but at least it won’t be important for the wrapping to be on but I’m hoping she will let the wrapping be or that they will re-wrap the paw when she gets spayed next week.

Since Odin have passed away I can finally give leafy greens without a worry. It was hard having a bunny with a super sensitive tummy that would go into gi stasis for the smallest things. So I have been slowly introducing leafy greens to my girls.

Fenris is living with my parents at the moment because she started to become stress having Tyra in her territory and I could see on her that she wasn’t liking it. Now she enjoys jumping into my dads lap when he’s eating or watching tv for snacks and cuddles. I planning to bond all four after Hodr have been castrated. Tyra and Freja will sleep together and always greet each other through the barrier. So it’s going good for them.

The new bunny I will pick up on saturday, his name will be Höder ”hodr” based on the blind god from the nordic mytholgy because he have vision impairment and fully blind on one eye and the other have low vision. 4D559651-FC23-417E-B1C2-E98AF4A44133.jpeg

The black sheep of the bunny family is Loke and he have finally become healthy. We still correct his behaviors around the bunnies when he’s in playmood specially around Freja because she’s too kind while the other buns he behaves correctly around. Might be because Tyra is nearly the same size as him and Fenris nips him if she gets annoyed by him, which ends with Loke fleeing and avoiding Fenris. While Freja is just too kind but she will sleep and do zoomies near Loke. It might be her fluffy fur that makes her look a big fluff ball but Loke have always been careful around them. He don’t behave the same as he does with his toys and he will beg together with the bunnies.

So I think I made great process of the bunnies and the cat first being scared of each other to them being relaxed around each other.

Now Balder have moved in and he’s so social. I have already gotten kisses and bunny purrs. He’s on antibiotic eye drops and I’m hoping his eyes will clear up. At least one eye is black and murky, no reaction from that eye while the other look normal.

Balder is truly a sweet boy and so comfortable around Loke. They was sleeping together. Loke also hit him once with his paw without his claws when Balder was too much up in his face.

At least they seem to enjoy their life and I’m sure Balder will become a really cuddly boy. After a day with antibiotic eye drops they stopped being weepy eyes and it seems like they are helping. The drops will be used for a week, twice daily and I’m glad he’s so easy to handle.

I have also trimmed Balder claws today so they are short but super sharp.
