Acorn




Who, me? I'd never get up on your living room furniture... I chinned it, you know what that means.

- Thank you Richard!

  1. Now, get to work, Acorn. It doesn't have that "lived in" look yet.

  2. We finally figured out that Acorn is deaf. At first we thought it was "selective listening" like most rabbits, but he has no auditory startle reflex and if you approach him where he can't see you it terrifies him. Have any of you ever had a deaf rabbit? Do you know if this is common?

  3. I haven't ever heard of it. Please let us know what you learn and what you do. Could wearing an essential oil let him know that friends where around and likely to appear? He is so lovely...that is, terrible, just terrible the way he took your furniture. Thank you for giving a bunn a chance.

  4. Aww, what a sweet little guy! I like AJ's suggestion as his sense of smell will be even more acute. Perhaps slightly heavier footsteps might also let him know you are approaching? His sense of authori-tay does not appear diminished in the slightest, however.

  5. Perhaps he is a highly evolved rabbit whose ancestors turned a deaf ear to their humans so much that the trait was weeded out.
    He looks so cute sitting on his velvet couch.

  6. The main thing that we try to do is to make sure that he sees us when we approach him. Also, don't approach him when he's asleep. He sleeps like a teenager, sprawled everywhere. Sometimes he even sleeps on his back.

    1. Here is a forum with some interesting suggestions for training a deaf bunny: http://www.binkybunny.com/FORUM/tabid/54/aft/118628/Default.aspx

  7. Seems like google glass for bunnies would help here ;-) Bunnies servants with tracker implants would show up on synthetic radar vision and Acorn would always know where they are. He would also know is they're up to anything other than bunny chores. Ohhhh, the zaps he could administer from the comforts of his living room furniture ;-)

    1. All good suggestions, but I think Acorn is more intent on training us...
