The hay buffet is a very important part of my daily life. It gets my digestion going and that helps me think deep thoughts and contemplate my plans to dominate the universe. Until this point, the female hoomin bean (FHB) has been providing the hay buffet in an empty tissue box. Her logic (a wee bit faulty, but she does provide the hay, so I'll try to be nice) was that the hay would mostly stay contained in the tissue box, and this would keep things tidy. I laugh my rabbitty little laugh in her direction. Did she not realize that I would amuse myself by repositioning my hay box as and when I please, and that I would leave a long trail of unfinished hay pieces as I went? Seriously, no floor is complete without a good scattering of hay.
Well, the FHB and I do not see eye to eye on this matter. Something about hay clogging the vacuum hose and not having time for this mess and blah blah blah...
So, the MHB and I had a business meeting about it, as we do from time to time, and we decided....well, I decided and he agreed....that I should have a custom hay buffet with integrated restroom facility. The integration was necessary because although I am inclined to use the HB- mandated restroom box with fluffy litter, sometimes when I am very engaged with my hay buffet, I forget. Well, after all, I am a bun with many important things on my mind. The restroom box fits into the wooden frame and can easily be emptied by the
As you can see, the hay buffet is clearly designed to offer me maximum access to my favourite hay, while tending to keep it all in one spot, to appease the FHB.
Bits of hay that fall out, or that are dropped while I am eating, fall into the integrated restroom facility. Furthermore, I can be completely focused on my hay buffet without having to remember to go find the restroom box. It's already right there!
I have carefully explored my new furniture and I did taste it, but I have decided I prefer the hay to the wood. The MHB put a nice hinged lid on the hay portion, for frequent refills. This also makes a good perch from which I can survey all the kingdom that is mine.
I can eat from the top, if I want to.
I can also keep a watchful eye on those shady guinea pig characters.
I can do my stretching routines to the left...
...and to the right. It's very sturdy and doesn't topple over when I do my exercises.
All in all, it's an excellent addition to my domain. Thank you to the MHB for making it. Until next week, as always, keep your ears clean!
