tomorrow for her new home. I have had here with me for a week and for all she lunges at you she is a lovely rabbit. You can see the potential of her wanting to be friendly. I will miss her:(
I am meeting Phill at Killington Lake Services (Cumbria) at 12pm tomorrow

Well I dropped Velvet off with Phill, I forgot to take a jacket with me so I made Phill take her out of the carrier:lol::lol::lol::lol:
If all goes to plan Velvet maybe in her new home tonight (i think:?) as Phill and her o/h were on about going up to Edinburgh this afternoon:D.

I also met Mrs Ord and came home with 2 REW Giants:roll::lol::lol::lol:

She is worse than naughty:lol::lol::lol: but very nice
I think once she has settled in her new home she may well calm down a tiny bit:roll:

I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Angie, Kay and Phill (and anyone else I don't know about) who've carted Velvet all the way up here. She is now settled at my mum and dad's and we'll pick her up from there. I am so looking forward to spoiling my grumpy bun!

ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU!! :wave:

Glad she made it home with your mum and dad, Velvet had a nights stop over in my chicken coop as we couldn't get Sarah-Mary's mum on the phone so didn't go to Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon. she is lovely, but she is proper nasty, she's on par with Missy and Foxy! Although i will brave missy and foxy bararmed and wearing flip flops, no flipflops around Velvet!

Oh gawd :shock: What have I let myself in for :lol: Gardening gloves at the ready!

So I've been told, my mum was raving on about her. She obviously hasn't tried to touch her yet so I'll get her. :D

Nah you don't need gloves, just shoes with toes in them and maybe a long fleece! Once you've got her she's fine and if you approach her from above she's much easier to get hold of, approach from the front and you may loose a finger! She is very very pretty, your mum almost didn't get her LOL I was very tempted to pretend i wasn't in!

Your mum got a peek at all my buns as well :D

Oh yes, I heard! "She's got fourteen buns! FOURTEEN! She has a beautiful place and they live in a shed and are all gorgeous and I got to meet them" etc etc...You're in trouble now, she knows where you live! :lol: You're lucky you don't have pigs or she'd be camped on your doorstep :lol:

I'm sure she'll be alright, Vinnie was a right grumpy bun and relaxed enough to enjoy a snuggle on the floor as long as it was on her terms and I didn't surprise her. We'll get there eventually :D

I think with time and lots of attention Velvet will be fine, I would wear wellies if she is free ranging :lol::lol::lol: as when I had her free ranging in the garden she would launch at me if I tried to get her.
She is gorgeous and I am missing her:D

thank you for giving velvet a home :wave:

i hope you wont be disappointed :?...you cant say i wasnt honest though ! i did warn you :lol:

she did take a while to settle with us so all the change has probably upset her again ...give her time and youl see her for the lovely bun she is .. the day before she went to kays on the first part of her journey she climbed into my arms for a cuddle :love:

I am looking forward to her, there's no way I'm going to be disappointed. I'm sure she'll calm down, just needs a bit of time. Once she's here she can settle down and realise us hoomins ain't that bad!

I don't own wellies :shock: And I wander about in my bare feet :lol:

I've already bought corner guards for the doors and skirting. :lol: Am also looking at child locks for kitchen cupboard doors. I was thinking about that chew stoppa (sp?) spray but need to do some more research on it first.

ETA - I've also been told how incredibly clever she is...wee madam :lol::D

she is one of the most inteligent buns ive EVER had the pleasure to meet :shock:...i said this within a week of her arriving here ..

i had her pet carrier trained in three days to save stressing herpicking her up . she moves her dish towards you when she wants food .. and gives you "the look" if shes feeling grumpy and wants leaving alone ;)

I remember you saying before but forgot about it until my dad mentioned it - I keep ringing for daily updates :oops: My mum was also very impressed that she jumps in her carrier to go outside. :D

Not really relevant but did you get my paperwork?

I HAS A BUNNEH!!

So funny, she just tried to flop and rolled right over :lol: She's very very clever, and is looking like she might jump out of her cage :shock: However we've had a lovely snuggle and she had a good sniff of my face (I tell you, I was blooming terrified :oops:), and she's now munching her greens.

She is SO GORGEOUS! Pictures definitely didn't do her justice :love::love::love:

Thanks again all x :wave:
