    Default Introducing Enfys

    If you've been following my latest bonding thread, you may well already know this but it's time for proper introductions...

    I got the best "birthday present" (not actually a birthday present, we just adopted her the day before) this year. A Blueberry Muffin... now renamed Enfys (pronounced En-viss).

    We had decided to adopt another Honeybunny as our indoor group had become unsettled since losing our beloved Arce. OH wanted a lop in particular, so we considered the lop does that were available at that time.

    Enfys has been at Honeybunnies for over a year, struggling to find the right home. She's a very muddled girl, prone to rearing and definitely has issues with fear aggression. In part, one of the main reasons we adopted her because of that - we were fully aware and fully warned about this by Jill. But we are honoured by the fact we have been entrusted to look after this very special little rabbit.

    Enfys is an opal otter mini lop, an absolute dot, cute as a Button (her new nickname, already!), and looks like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. She has adjusted to group life was surprisingly good grace. She is easily startled by the other rabbits, especially the other fear aggressive rabbit in it, Morningstar. This sometimes starts a few mad dashes around the bonding crate for all of them. However, she has settled pretty well with the rest of them and Yuki Winter in particular is especially fond of her (that boy has a lop-eared doe fetish!)

    We are actually pretty surprised with some of her behaviours. She is endlessly curious, always periscoping and watching what is going on around her. Enfys is also a very proud little girl, absolutely fastidious with her grooming. Considering she used to grunt and lunge is other bunnies got near her at Honeybunnies, it's even more incredible to know that she has been giving and receiving grooms happily and enthusiastically. She has also even graced us with her very first dead bunny flop!

    Enfys is a Welsh name, and it translates to the word "Rainbow" for those who don't know. Like Niji (Japanese for Rainbow) she was named in honour of Iris and Arce (the greek goddesses of the rainbows.)

    I've finally been able to spend some time on a proper little photoshoot of this wee little lady. We hope she'll settle in time as part of the Wayward family and that her issues will resolve over time, so she can enjoy being a rabbit and life in general.
