Chaos in Bunnyville

What a crazy week! Monday started with me giving the bunnies their Pet-i-cure. Of course, we all know how everyone in this family hates that! Well, I went to trim Princess Chloe Pudd'in Pie's dew claw and the whole darn thing came off! Eeeeewwww! Yick, puke! I almost threw up. There was only a little bit of blood though and she hopped around just fine afterward. I called the vet and they said not to worry that this happens sometimes and if she was acting ok then no worries. Well good. At least that's what I thought on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, Chloe was hardly eating. She was acting really weird. By Thursday she was worse. So Friday am, bright and early, we make our 2 1/2 hour drive to the vet. Turns out her back teeth got points on them and made ulcers on her tongue. She was hungry, but was in too much pain to try and eat. Poor little thing! You see bunnies teeth grow like fingernails. Normally they grind themselves down, but sometimes they can be a problem. They were fine in December, but got wonky now.

Well, they put her under and filed down the teeth and points and sent us on our way with medicine. She's doing better, but still can't eat regularly. I have to feed her with a syringe. Thank goodness for my fabulous vet's!
Of course I brought Razzy along too for a checkup while we were there. He has been on a diet, but has only lost 4 grams! Lazy, chunky, bunny. But "Mr. Fuzzy Pants" is so darn cute and such a lovey!

Finally, I leave you with what I did get accomplished this week and it's my "Friendship Rabbits Stitchery." You can make a cute wallhanging out of it or a pillow. Do you see the rabbits? It says "Friendship isn't one big thing. It's a million little things." A fun and easy gift to make for that special friend in your life. The pattern is available on my site.

Have a great Memorial Day! Thank you to all our Troops! We love ya!

This week IGF vet's that can file teeth and a dew claw that was dead

Shell, my goodness!!! I would have been horrified too!! So glad to know that the furry children are doing fine now!!! I LOVE the quilt! You lucky gals that can sew!!! Sigh...I am in a creative slump, I think...

I love the bunny tales...I cannot imagine having to drive 2.5 hours to a vet though! Yikes1 I have a diabetic cat that gets glucose testing once a month...fortunately, I have a 10 minute drive...his screaming would paralyze me for that long!
PS Love the handiwork also!

Hi Shell,
What beautiful pictures in this post. Your work is gorgeous as usual. and the bunnies, well, what can I say. They are too cute. I am so sorry you had a scare. Hope Chloe is good as new real soon.

Poor Chloe, it's been the week for Chloe ailments. My Chloe had an infection that needed antibiotics. Mr. Razzy is just pure muscle and we all know muscle weighs more than anything! What's the matter with that vet?? Your pillow is just gorgeous, I see the bunnies!

Hi Shell,

I'm sorry to know Chloe was having problems with the teeth, but am glad you took her to the vet to get it fixed. Hopefully she recovers soon and can eat well.

Have a lovely holiday weekend!

Hi Shell.....I'm so glad you found out what was wrong with Chloe....ouch! Hope she is feeling better and eating again soon. And poor Mr. Razzy.....I know exactly how he feels, all fluffed up and can't lose any of it. :( Your little quilt is so pretty.

Oh the adventures of Mommy Bunnyhood! I learn so much about bunnies from your posts. So glad Chloe is on the mend. Yikes! I shudder at the thought of grinding down teeth. Who knew? You look marvelous Shell! Love your new work. Have a happy week!

Poor Chloe, give her a hug from me.I know what it is like with pets, they cannot tell you when in pain and you always worry about them.
Love your finished project it is beautiful.

Aw, poor baby bunn:( I hope she is better soon! Shell, that picture of you and Razzy is darling, and the quilt is beautiful!
Wish I could sew.

Poor Chloe! A broken dew claw, then molar spurs! Hans sends his best wishes, and hopes that Chloe's teeth issues will not re-occur :)

P/S: It looks as though Hans' dew claw may be growing back. I felt a hard bump where the dew claw is supposed to be..
