Using a cardboard box as a toy seems an economic and relatively easy way of entertaining a bunny, but it's been at least two months until we found a new, suitable box for Jippie. Previously, the boxes that we've got from purchasing various goods just couldn't fit the requirements. They were either too flat, too short or too cellophane-taped.
Saturday was the local supermarket's no-plastic-bags day, so they provided boxes for people to carry their groceries. Finally, finally, finally ... a good, hardy cardboard box. (Hey, we didn't grab it greedily or anything, it was needed for our day's shopping anyway.)
I cut away the flaps and cut out two holes, making the box into a tunnel. My younger sister drew a cartoon of Jippie onto the box. She loves drawing comics.
A frolicking Jippie!
I drew a picture of a carrot and apple, but I'm not good at drawing so ... y'all aren't going to get a glimpse of how it looks like. Anyhow -
Psstt - Jippie!! We got a new box for you!
"What? I'm busy."
Ah, there's the old brown box. There're actually urine stains on it ... All because once, Jippie urinated on the floor and well, the liquid flowed right towards and soaked the box. We were going to throw it away, but as a replacement wasn't given to Jippie, he became depressed and sulky. And so, the box was placed back to his play area.
Now, back to the present. Jippie, don't you want to check out the new box? *eager, sparkling eyes*
"I'm busy, hoomin."
... Fine. Never mind, folks. He'll be sure to explore it later once we place a veggie strand or two on its top. (Okay, he did sort of inspect the box five minutes after these photos were taken. He poked his head into one of the holes, with his ears erected and alert, as if checking to see if there were anything suspicious hiding inside the box!)
