    Default New Bunny, u/d name Amber

    Even with Heidi and Raven, my home has felt empty since I lost Madelyn on July 24th. Recently I was looking to adopt a small breed bunny, yet there are very few rabbits available and so far I have only seen a few larger breeds.
    The pet supply store where I purchase my hay and pellets operates it's own adoption center (cats mostly) yet it also sells hand raised birds and small animals, including some bunnies. Today I was picking up bunny supplies when a group of lionhead bunnies caught my eye.

    I tried to resist, yet soon was sitting on a folding chair holding one of the females. She is a butterscotch/carmel color with sable brown on the tip of her nose and her ears. Holding her made me so happy I almost cried so they agreed to hold her until the end of the day.

    I purchased my hay and left to get some greens at the grocery store. After phoning my spouse, I decided to get this 9 week old lionhead. Please, no lectures about purchasing a bunny from a pet supply store instead of getting a rescue. The store owner made me sign the same paperwork they use for adoptions. I must give her a proper home and medical care and if I cannot do so for any reason I must surrender her for adoption. Of course this will not be necessary, this little girl deserves a good home and I will do my best to give her one.

    We got home an hour ago, so we are still trying out names. We will update when I get one that fits.

    No lectures from me. Just love and admiration. I know how much the loss of Madelyn hurt, and it won’t ever leave, but it also leaves a gap that you want to fill and occasionally when we aren’t looking for it, fate just seems to look over our shoulder and present us with a special opportunity.
    For you this opportunity has happened and your new bunny has just landed very firmly on her paws and has found her forever home with all the love and warmth she will ever need.
    I can’t wait for photos - she sounds beautiful. She is so lucky to have found you and I’m sure it was meant to be - because you weren’t looking for her.
    Xx

    Thank you for the lovely words. It has been a few years since I had a bunny this young so I am a bit nervous.
