View Full Version : Shouldn't have, but have

I wrote yesterday (on the rabbit care discussion forum) about a bunny that had been dumped at my managers shop. Well, now i can give you all the details as he is now offically my new bunny!!

Okay. Hes a black lop, bout the size of Bindi. My manager was given him about a year ago. He was only a baby then. She had been trying to sell him in her shop but everyone was put off because he is black, and because he has an eye problem.

She always gets people bringing in animals they no longer want. So when she said she was bringing a rabbit back to the kennels because he wasn't selling i thought he had only just been brought in. My manager said that the girls that work at her shop were fond of him because he was so chilled. And loved jumping around the shop!!

Well, as i said i was going to clean his eyes up...and i thought i would have a struggle on my hands, but he actually loves the attention. Hes the complete opposite to Bindi. Hes a cuddle bunny, and Bindis a naughty bounce around bunny!!

Heres a couple of pics of my boy. They aren't great as they were taken just as he was going in his new home. He looks grumpy but really hes happy to have somewhere to call home.



Oh, by the way. He doesn't have a name yet.

Oh forgot to say. My new bunny will be off to the vets probably Tuesday. If i can get him an appointment. He'll have a full check over injections, and as soon as possible, castration.

You never know Bindi and "new bun" might become friends one day.

:shock: :shock: Did new bun hear you utter the 'C' word :shock: :lol: He's a lovely bunster!! :D Jane and Bunsxx

Don't think "new bun" could hear me. Hes way down stairs tucked up in bed.

The 'C' Word is not my first concern. I want to make sure hes ok everywhere else first. Bindi will have to put up with her new friend being her neighbour for a while, me thinks.

Awwww - well done - he's really cute - you should give him a Christmassy type of name. We have a Tiny-Tim, a Kracker and we had Mr Jingles. Try something like that - give him a snuggle from me :D

awwww hes so cute how can anyone not want him

21-11-2005, 02:14 AM
He's gorgeous, well done for taking him in.

You could name him after one of the reindeers - Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Donder, Blitzen, Cupid and Comet.

I could only remember Rudolph and Blitzen, so jus thad to look them up on the internet - I didn't realise one was called Donder - what an odd name!

He's lovely! Does he have a name yet?

21-11-2005, 05:39 PM
Awww Grace he is lovely XXX

21-11-2005, 06:28 PM
I can see why you couldn't resist him, what a handsome fella :D
I'm sure he will be very happy with you 8)

We have named him Maya. My fella picked it. Its from a book hes reading. Maya is the god of night and day, or something similar. Well, i thought it was unusual and kinda cute.

Maya is off to the vets tomorrow for a check up and if all ok his first injection.

Will take more pics really soon. I have to make room on my cameras memory.
