Tofu Tuesday: Hoverbun

Sometimes Tofu the bunny sits with his furry paws tucked underneath and with his extra bit of skirting around the back, he looks like a hoverbun.

Thanks to The Koala for this idea.

Hoverbuns aside, Tofu had us worried last week when his floppy ears swelled up to 2-3 times their regular thickness. I often overreact as a bunny owner, but rabbit health can take a quick dive so when you notice new symptoms, it’s important to act quickly. Took him to the vet who ran a bunch of tests. The swelling was already subsiding by then and they couldn’t find the cause. Could have just been a reaction to an insect bite. Other than the huge ears, Tofu was acting (eating and drinking) normally which was comforting.

We’re super glad that Tofu’s geriatric tests came back pretty much all clear. He has some lumps in his belly as usually but they weren’t concerned as he’s just a lumpy bunny. Usually he has bladder sludge issues but since I’ve been syringe feeding him water each day, his bladder is much better than usual. Yay!

Tofu also got a butt trim and his nails did so he’s now looking extra spiffy.

    Lol so cute ❤️ I want a pet but we’re renting and aren’t allowed 😦

    • We’re also renting but our landlord has a pet so I guess he didn’t mind so much that all his tenants have pets too. Our neighbours have a cat and a pup too.

        We’ve just moved in here and haven’t met our landlords yet, so fingers crossed when they come past next month they like us enough to let us get a puppy! Nice blog btw 🙂 I like your writing style

  2. He looks like an extraordinary bunny. And I love the name! Every time I see post about Tofu, I smile. That’s just it. We all need a little bit of tofu in our life.

    So sweet! Absolutely love his name. Although I am a dog lover–this little guy would make me consider a bunny!

  4. Soooo cute! It’s amazing that you are doing weekly posts that are dedicated to a certain bunny as your pet!-JW 🐰
