Even with his blindness, Tofu still spends 12 hours a day outside in the garden. He is eager to go outside in the mornings and runs to the back door to be let out. He sometimes comes inside on his own in the evenings, and equally, sometimes needs to be fetched.
Tofu is jumping up onto our bed and couch and continues to move around the house like he owns the place. He still doesn’t sleep on our bed like he used to, but that’s no biggie. He prefers to sleep on the floor next to our bed.
One time he went to jump onto the couch, but underestimated the height and fully bailed. I swear he looked embarrassed. Failing to reach the couch could happen due to his blindness or could just be something that happens. We once had a bunny named Sharmi and a couple of times, she bailed when jumping up onto things. One time Sharmi was walking along the top of the couch and fell off the back. She was firmly wedged between the couch and the wall and had to be rescued. Boy did I laugh.
We’re keeping an eye on Tofu and how he navigates his world.

Awww! If I were a bunny and I missed a couch, I would be a little sheepish too.
But that is an awesome story about Sharmi. Animals do the silliest things!
Is it wrong to find so much amusement from animals bailing?
I had a portly guinea pig named Pookie. He was as big as a cat! I think I overfed him, but he really liked to eat and I loved feeding him!
Anyway, I would come home from school and without fail, he would be so excited to see me that he would stand on his back legs and put his front paws on the side of his pen to get a better look. And because he was so big, the pen would always tip over, sending wood chips, feed bowl, and piggie flying.
I dare anyone to say that guinea pigs don’t have facial expressions because in the split second before the pen tipped, he would get this look on his face like, “Noooooo! Not . . . aaaaggggggaaaaaiiiiiiin!”
And I would always point and laugh at him.
So, nope. Nothing wrong at thinking bailing animals are amusing 😉
Thank you for sharing the story about Pookie the portly guinea pig. I can just imagine it 😀
On his hind legs, it was like standing on two hams!
I miss him so much!
Oh Tofu, you are so brave.
I am so glad that Tofu is adapting well. We had a bunny, Spud fall between the couch and the wall, poor little thing.
