"Bunny" being a temporary name. I hope someone caught the HIMYM reference I used for the title.

Anyways let me introduce to you to "Bunny":

Leaning on my leg for some pets at the shelter

Allowing me to pet her

And Again

She's is around 6 months is the guess of the vet at the shelter and Donna at the rescue who checked her out on her way home. Did I mention the Bunny rescue we've been working with is only 5 minutes down the road

She was written down as a Himalayan/dwarf mix but we don't think she has dwarf in her. She is 4.4 lbs right now and slightly underweight so she'll probably be about 5 lbs. She was found outside by an elderly lady who kept her for a while. She let her run outside and she was always "sweet" so the shelter named her Sweetie. As sweet as she is, that name won't be staying. She is though for now. She was only spayed a week ago so we had to put her in smaller cage then planned. We're waiting a month or maybe longer to introduce her to Bunjamin. And if it doesn't work out for any reason Donna said she will help us find her a great home- not sure I won't be attached by then .

But she's a super nice bun and I'm excited to get to know her. Donna said we saved two lives. I really hope we did. I still feel bad not taking in a bun from Donna's rescue but she thanked me for taking her in from that awful shelter. We knew they killed rabbits there for being unwanted but I also found out they put them down if they bite anyone. Even staff. Grrr it makes me so mad that people dealing with animals could be so ignorant. Moving on... Here she is!

Awww! I haven't been online a whole lot recently, had you made a post before about getting her!? She is adorable and so sweet looking! I know how you would want to change her name though. :p I am sure you will come up with a great one!

I read about her in Chat thread and was hoping...

I'm so glad she's out of the shelter and in a home for now. Regardless of how it pans out with Bunjamin, she's in such a better situation now. Between you guys and Donna, her future is safer. Thanks for giving her that.

From looks of her in these pictures... You have to admit the word for her is Sweet! Looking forward to what you come up with for her name.

Mocha I had talked about it in October Chat a bit. I had written out longer stuff but everytime I write something long before I can copy it, the site crashes on me So I gave up and kept my post short.

Jersey, thank you for those reassuring words. I have one idea for a name but Andy's not sure about it yet. It includes Bunjamin's last name though

I can't help but think about the 4 lops still at the shelter. I hope they all find good homes too. This little sweetie had another risk according to Donna with Halloween around the corner but I don't want to traumatize you guys too with what I was told this morning. I'm just glad she is settling in real nice.

oh man she is sooo cute!!! I love her colours and can't wait to see more pics at home *poke poke*

I know what you're talking about Frankie, in regards to Halloween. I'm ALWAYS urging people to keep their, outside, animals inside on Halloween. It breaks my heart to see all the missing animals signs and kijiji posts the next day

She's so far a pretty chill bun. She flopped in her cage like a minute after we put her in it. I think she enjoyed having more space. I can't wait to see her reaction to the large condo we built her.

FF she's gorgeous! I would love to get a bun with red eyes but for some reason it freaks the bf out. =p I hope everything goes well for you guys! Would you mind PMing me what you found out? There's this little boy at a shelter that I've had my eye on and have been hoping that they'll keep him from harm until I can adopt him until possibly late Dec. early Jan. I don't want anything to happen to the little guy.

I caught the reference! She is so beautiful and definitely looks sweet. I'm curious about the name you're thinking of!

Also, what happens on Halloween? I haven't heard of anything bunny related. Then again I try to stay away from any of the morbid / messed up parts of Halloween that show up.

Can somebody pm me what happens on Halloween? I'm confused. The worst we've had is egged houses. Why do so many pets go missing?

Yay for people catching the HIMYM reference. Right now I'm letting bunny rest and get used to us. I'll get more pics tomorrow I promise. I didn't mean to create a stir about Halloween. I had just found out myself. I sent you a message Skipper's mama but it says I must wait 3 minutes in between each message before sending another so if you want to know- be warned it might frighten you about how cruel this world is. You can still PM me.

But I really don't want to scare everyone! Today's a happy day when a cute bun got a better place to live. And has 2 new doting slaves

"Bunny" looks so sweet! I'm glad you were able to find a bunny to bring home to Bunjamin. I can't wait to see more pictures - and hopefully of the two of them together bonded nicely =)

I hate to also ask, but could someone pm me about Halloween? Like the others, I assumed toilet paper, eggs, and pumpkins were the worst out there...

She'd probably let you Roberta! She is so cuddly and sweet. I hope it's not fear. But we'll see once she really warms up to us and she gets her super awesome condo

Thanks everyone! I love her nose and eyes too! And her ears are only grey on the front half which is really unique and cool. They're more pink and beige I think on the back. Her coloring sorta reminds me of Skipper but she has less grey.

She is beautiful! congrats on such a snuggly sweet new addition to your family.

And I want to say that I appreciate you guys PMing yourselves about the cruelty that people do to animals, and keeping those kinds of details off the boards. I do not need to know any specifics, but suffice it to say that there are terrible humans throughout time that hurt living things - mostly other humans - and any effort to raise the quality of life one creature at a time is our constant message to each other here. Nothing to do with the spirit(s) of Halloween. Just maybe more opportunity to bring disgusting strangers up to your door.

And I think I must be old. I don't get the reference....

yes but I hate to say them until we're dead sure. She has a vet appointment tomorrow where they will ask for a name so I'm hoping we've made up our mind for good by then.

OK, I know that show. (and thanks, FF )

I never had a vet appointment where one of the staff didn't laugh when they heard the name of my animal: Lambchop (was a cat), Spockie (was a rabbit) and Samantha Bunnykins.

They had her put down as himalayan/dwarf mix. Don't think dwarf part is right. I was thinking Californian is possible. A lot of it depends on how big she gets. Since her age is iffy she could get bigger. She's 4.4 lbs right now. Actually probably more now that she's getting a proper diet with us

This is a new rabbit vet for us. We moved and the old one is just a little far. This is the vet the rescue uses and loves. But we always have old vet to back up on. I still love her lol. Just in an emergency distance matters.

TL she'd let you snuggle her! I'm still trying to figure out
If she's just nervous or passive. But I know she enjoys the pets.

On another note, it's killing me keeping her in that small cage. But I don't want her to hurt her internal stitches. I feel like such a bad slave :/
