Rabbit Shaming

Why should dogs have all the fun?
Dog-Shaming has become popular recently.  We Rabbit People love our rabbits, but we know they are not always on their best behavior.  This happened this morning while I was getting ready for work.  Hubert made quick work of the covers that were there to protect the wires.  Does he feel shame for it?  That is up for debate.

Caleb gets a best friend, Mom, Dad and home!

It’s a lot of fun going to the shelter every month but so easy to fall in love with some of the bunnies and want to take them home.  I fell in love with a little boy named Caleb.   My husband Jim said no – that four was enough.   I was sad but understood since we had just adopted Honey & Jake in October and also have Maggie & Kringle (2 senior/special needs bunnies).   Well I guess the universe had other plans -- haha!    Less than a week after discussing it, there was a white bunny with pink eyes in our yard.   We were able to catch him and brought him in.   No one claimed him and actually that was good because we liked him instantly of course J.     We brought him to the vet to get checked out and a couple months later we had him neutered.     We named him Lucky because he was very lucky to have survived outside without any harm coming to him.   So Jim says “looks like we can get Caleb” and gave me a look like I somehow planned it!  Haha!   Interesting how life works out.  J  They bonded really quick and are the best of friends! They make us laugh so much always running around and playing. So now we have six!   Hmmm….. there was a show called “Eight is Enough”…….    Hehe…….

Tudi has been Adopted!

Yay!  It is so great to see the bunnies find such a happy home!

Tudi wanted to say "hi" to all the humans that took care of her. She is adjusting well to her new home. She was a little shy at first but now will often come to the front of the cage where she loves to lay while you pet her. She'll hop out of her cage for a brief look around and then go right back in to rest. I'm not sure if she's still warming up to us or just really lazy. She is doing a great job using her litterbox and loves her romaine lettuce. Still has an attitude when I go to feed her but will let us pet her for hours once she has a full belly. The kids are enjoying reading to her which I think she enjoys. Thank you for introducing us.

More Pairs

Hanson and Mack went to a wonderful home today. Yay!

There is still several beautiful pairs at the shelter waiting for their forever homes. Pairs that are already bonded make everything so much easier! And they are twice the fun!

Meet Emme and Redford. Emme is the grey and white lop, and Redford is the handsome red boy. They were adopted a few years ago, and recently returned to the shelter. Nothing they did, which is pretty much always the case. Their human got a new spouse who was allergic to the buns, or their hay. They had a hard time adjusting back to shelter life. It must be scary to be in a home, only to lose it and your humans. Emme had already been passes around several homes before coming to the shelter originally. They are doing so much better now, but it would be great to see them in their new home soon!

This is Tori and Dori. They are very loving sisters. They were born at the Humane Society of Hartford County, after their Mom came into that shelter pregnant.

Below are Parvati and Padma. They are also sisters. Their former family also did not keep them due to allergies.

And although Kane is not a pair, he is the biggest bunny at the shelter right now. He is about 9.5 to 10 pounds. He was found stray the day after Hurricane Irene last year. It was scary being inside during the hurricane. I cant imagine how afraid he was being outside loose during the whole thing! He was brought into the shelter malnourished and with ear infections. He is now a big healthy boy. He loves to break out of his pen so he can have full run of the shelter. He is always a very good boy when he has been out loose, and would do well with free range of the house.

One trend you see in the stories above,is people not wanting their pets anymore due to allergies. Please be sure you and you whole family will be OK before bringing any animal into your home. If you are unsure if anyone has allergies, spend time with another families pets. Maybe pet sit for them for a weekend. You can also volunteer at the shelter. There are also many great medicines out there to control symptoms, and allergy shots are also a big help. Many times people are not allergic to the rabbit, but they are reacting to the hay or the litter box smells. Cleaning the litter box frequently, and keeping the hay in a closed bag or box will help. Unfortunately, many doctors make giving up the animals their very first suggestion before other ways are given a good chance.

A Note from Livingston

Hello! Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Livingston and I moved
in with Reilly, Cathy and Clay last Friday, 2/3.

I’d been living at the shelter for almost a year, and was about a year old when I arrived. Clay took a liking to me and made sure I had a nice cage with a fine view.
Before the shelter, I was passed from one family to nother. The first family couldn’t afford me; I’m a big boy and do like to eat. My time with the second family
was short lived and ended with their divorce. At least I was lucky enough to find my way to the shelter – I don’t want to think of some of the other ways things
could have turned out. Thanks to everyone at the shelter for taking such good care of me.

I was introduced to Reilly at the shelter on a Tuesday afternoon. She
was sad and lonely and in need of a companion. The loss of her friend
Zeta had hit her hard. I tried to be on my best behavior, but I couldn’t help
myself and had to flirt a little. She’s so sweet!
I was surprised to find myself in her house just a few days later. My new
home! I am having a ball running and binkying all over the place, and getting kisses. I’m a lucky bun!
