Honeymooners Return

The inimitable Calypso Spots and her new love, Orion the English Spot, have returned to the East Bay from a San Francisco honeymoon spent in an X-pen in Cesar's living room.
Photos and more details will have to wait as in his exploration of his new home, Orion demonstrated that it was not sufficiently rabbit-proofed for a being of his size and energy. Experiments are now being undertaken in routing water from a mysterious plastic tube out the back door. (Whether this tube is supposed to connect to refrigerator or stove remains a mystery to Orion's human, who has inspected the entire area thoroughly and is also unable to venture under the house in search of a shut-off valve due to recent earthquake retrofitting.)
In other news, Orion had his toenails trimmed this morning at the vet's, but apparently one was missed, which he managed to break off this evening so that he could leave dramatic trails of blood everywhere.
Calypso Spots and Orion remain enchanted with one another, although Ms. Spots was clearly taken aback that he was going to live in her home and that items with his personal scent had been placed there in her absence. She has been making sure to leave her scent all over them when not cuddling up with their owner.

So apparently Willow has been exchanged for a celestial body?

Yes, Willow was not sufficiently fond of Ms. Spots. I had my hopes, but although it wouldn't have been impossible, the House Rabbit Society staffer thought the chemistry wasn't really what it might be. And then she brought out Orion!
