Its a funny old life

 Gosh its been a few weeks since I last Posted and well I have learnt it is a funny old life! I've grown again when I got weighed in the week I was 1.542kg! Mum is moaning I'm getting to heavy to carry around in her arms all the time....But she still does it "giggles"


I got to have my first proper adventure at the beach....


And had lots of fun digging holes in the sand....


Mum's wild bird pal Bird the Jackdaw still comes to visit, funny old bird! And the Hedgehogs which are these spikey creatures that look cute in a strange way and are grumpy by nature have come back after being absent for a few weeks. Mum said there are 2 big fat adults and at least one juvenile, one of which has taken up residence in one of the nest boxes so its busy here feeding the 500....well that's what mum says. Anyway I am still figuring out how I want to do things so please forgive me for being a bit hit and miss here in Blogville.

Anyway until next time this is Titch signing out!

Monday Monday


 Its Monday and finally the rain has stopped so we went out for a little adventure before it got to warm



Which was a fine time to take a few photos of our Titch, though at 14 weeks old tomorrow she is not so titchy anymore. I weighed her on Sunday and she came in at 1.386kg. at 14 weeks she is about the same size as Speedy was at 16 weeks old.


I even had to loosen the harness around her girth a little this morning


And she is starting to get easier to take photo's of now as well



She is looking very Beautiful at 14 weeks old isn't she?

Smile

 

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile, and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile


Speedy was never a smiler on the outside but he had a inner smile that showed in his character But Titch is a Smiler......She does smile when she is Happy

12 Week old Today!

 Titch is 12 weeks old today and she now weighs 1250 grams and she is definitely a Teenager and a hormonal one at that. We had a bit of a stroppy temper tantrum from her last night, so much so she had to spend the night in her play pen in the kitchen after she kept trashing her pen upstairs. Who knew that a female rabbit could be so much trouble....not me that's for sure....

Sunday Selfies With Titch

 Its been a week since we last posted but we haven't been up to much as we have had some pretty awful weather but I thought We should Get Titch to do Sunday Selfies at the very least and Fill you in on how she is doing.


She looks like the Queen of her castle sat on her box like this, and I suppose she is after all she is already in charge.



She likes to lie right by my feet for some reason and has to be touching them too. Titch will be 12 weeks old on Tuesday and she is becoming an adolescent. After getting her litter trained that has gone out of the window, her hormones are rushing around her and she is marking everywhere in her play area especially in Speedy's old tent so I had to wash it and got her a pop up cube with another tunnel to play with. Her litter tray has had to be moved to the other side of her pen because she was peeing all over her blanket and the tent. The hope is she will start using the litter box again, which she has a bit but not completely. 

She has also started building a nest in her box in her pen up stairs, she hasn't pulled her fur so thankfully no phantom pregnancy. Being female they mature about 4 weeks earlier then males so can in theory they can get pregnant at 12 weeks. but we have to wait till she is bigger before Spaying her so we just have to bare with her hormones for a couple more months at least. And hope that her behavior doesn't change to much in the mean time. I'm going to weigh her on Tuesday as she will be 12 weeks old but you can see by the bottom photo how much she has grown because My feet aren't exactly small.

She still loves to be cuddled all the time but she definitely has stroppy moments if she feels she's not getting enough attention, oh and she knows the fridge means food as she comes over when we open it....she's a smart cookie that one

Sunday Selfies With Titch

 "Giggles" Its Me Titch with you today.Mummy said I needed to do a Selfie post and I was like Oh Mum can't we finish my cuddles 1st?....


So here are my short curly whiskers for you to see and my cute Booplesnoot! Mummy got me a new toy yesterday,I do like it and I love playing in it and zooming through it.But mummy hasn't managed to film me doing that yet...I'm to quick for her "Giggles"


A little up date from Mummy:

Titch will be 11 weeks old this coming Tuesday so I decided to weigh Titch this morning and she is now at 1135 grams. Her weight gain has slowed the last couple of weeks because we had a lot of hot weather so she wasn't eating as much all though with the cooler days that we are now having she is eating more again. That hasn't stopped her growing though, her back legs and rear end are getting longer and bigger and she now has little tiny teats on each side of her tummy. She also is getting a tiny dewlap as well. Titch is growing into a little lady....My Little Miss Titch.

Titch's character is really coming out now too. She has character traits that my Angel Lop Caramel had, He would give kisses, love his cuddles but he was feisty, he would thump his thumpers if he was ignored, climb up your legs and dig at your ankles and was brave....all things Titch is and does. She also has Character traits that My Angel Speedy, She is as adventuress as Speedy, she has this curiosity and nosiness and gets into everything, is relaxed about using the harness and going on adventures. Titch wraps this all up into her own female way. She comes to the fridge when we open the door...She knows where the greens are! And she like going in and out of things so I brought her a tunnel, she loves it she goes in and out sticks her head out of the hole, She used it right away as soon as I put it down, Speedy never liked tunnels for some reason.....She is a Real Diva....Feisty and lovable Nosy and cheeky all into one adorable goofball....I know we are in for an adventure With Titch!

Titch progress report

 I know it's Sunday Selfies day but its been a funny old week. We had a heat wave which finally broke Friday....still it has been warm the last couple of days. And we have a cold front moving in on Monday night so the temps will drop from the low 70's to around 66 to 68 deg with rain so not so nice.

We found out for Certain that Titch is a girl which in its self isn't a problem just means she will have to be spayed which costs more than a boys neuter. Its £80.00 pounds for a male rabbit to be neutered as a opposed to £120.00 pounds for a female rabbit to be spayed. But there is plenty of time to save the money as we will wait until she is at least 6 months old if not a little bit more.

I weighed her a couple of weeks ago at 911 grams well I didn't get round to weighing her until yesterday and she is now 1050 grams which meant the I had to loosen the fitting of her harness a bit.

As for her harness training well that is going very well. If we go somewhere there are a lot of wild bunnies Titch is much more relaxed, but if we go somewhere with no bunnies she is just a bit more wary...not scared but just a bit more wary. I'm expecting that to lesson the more she goes out and gets use to it but even if she is a little wary at times you can still see she is enjoying the space and freedom of running and leaping about where she pleases.

She met her nanna and grandad today for the first time and showed them how nosey she is which was fun to see. And this week we found out that Titch is a proper Houdini even more so than her predecessors and she has a thing about my plants so fencing is on order to protect my potted plants...I'm not bothered about my veg garden just all the other stuff. Titch is quite happy sneaking of upstairs to explore or going off to the lounge which is not good as it isn't that rabbit proofed and she can get in everywhere!
