Tofu Tuesday: The grass beneath his paws

Thank you for your wishes, Tofu is doing as well after surgery. Today was his final dose of pain meds though he still has another week of antibiotics to go.

For the first 2 days after surgery, Tofu stayed in his area of the house, dozing and eating, eating and dozing. He wasn’t eating a lot at the start but his appetite gets stronger each day.

Over the last couple of days he did a few extra things that showed he was starting to feel better:

  • He started hanging out in the lounge with us again
  • He jumped up onto the couch for snuggles
  • He enjoyed some time in the backyard
  • He came into the kitchen (at the other end of the house) to beg for treats

Tofu hates medicine time and gets feisty as hell but forgives us soon after. The Koala and I are just glad we don’t have to do any more injections. The medicine was thick so the needle was fat. I realised I have had heaps of needles in me, but never poked a needle into anyone else. My inexperience showed. The bunny was not impressed. We did 1 injection on the first day which went terribly but were able to switch to meds by mouth the very next dose. Meds by mouth is a better time for all of us.

Tofu is still looking a bit scary with stitches and half the fur on his face is shaved. But we’re getting used to it and the fur will grow back soon enough.


When Tofu went outside for the first time after surgery, he spent the whole time sitting in a planter. I think he liked the feeling of the grass beneath his paws.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. I’m glad to hear he weathered through this though time; you’ve got one resilient little bunny!❤️

  2. yay tofu! He is a strong one, Le boyfriend was so sad when he heard about his eye, he sends his best wishes and I’m sure he will be super happy to find out little tofu is better. XO

    While taking the dog on his walk last night, I saw a white pet rabbit enjoying outdoor time and thought of Tofu. Good to read he is mending.

  4. Whee are so glad he’s begining to feel better. It’s furry scary for hoomans when their furbabies are sick so you must have been furry worried

    Paws crossed he’s fighting fit in no time 🙂
