Kris & Kringle's new digs

Gaye used to wonder if some of bunny Kris's grumpy behavior was an expression of frustration at just having the small space of the rabbit hutch in which to operate.
Now we get a chance to see.

Doug has recently finished the construction of a rabbit run where the sanctuary's two hoppity residents can enjoy some fresh outdoor air and a bit more space. So far, they seem to very much approve. When I visited them there this evening, Kringle was his usual cautiously laid-back self, but Kris was positively relaxed by Kris standards. She didn't even try to rush me (!), opting instead for an investigative sniff before pausing to accept a few strokes and then returning to her alfalfa.

In other news, the cats in the New AIDS area adjoining the rabbit run are finding their new neighbors quite fascinating and are likely of the opinion that it was put there purely for their viewing pleasure.
