I am a new "old" guest on this forum. I joined almost 4 years ago when I had my first house rabbit, Karl. I loved this forum for all the many things I learned here, and all the great people and their beautiful bunnies. I have been away for a very long time though, but I see now that I have been looking around that I have missed all you crazy rabbit people
So here is a quick bunny update for you all:
4 years old and still going strong. My first one. Karl is a bunny-bunny. He enjoys kisses from me, but most of all, he just wants to hang out with other rabbits.
Molly joined us a few months after Karl moved in. My boyfriend has always described her "as a pain in the butt", and probably she was. I loved her endlessly - she had such great personality. Every rabbit I have ever had has loved her instantly, and so did I. She was my speciel one. Molly left us all on November 1st this year. I really miss her
Jack was a rabbit I found on a website when I looked for a wife for Karl. Some months later I noticed he was still looking for a home, and so of course I had to take him in. He was such a great lille fella. He bonded instantly with Molly and Karl, but most of all, he loved cuddling on my chest and sleep next to me in bed. Bless his little heart He died of leukemia just 6 months later.
Freddie was a substitute for Jack. Unfortunately, he and Karl DID NOT get along AT ALL. He took an instant liking to Molly though. It was endless fights btw him and Karl and after 9 months I had to stop the bonding sessions. He lives at a rabbit sanctuary now, and ignores me each time I go to visit him.
My was a substitite for Freddie, since I definitely wanted a trio. She lived in a garage with her mum in a tiny cage. Both were terrified of people. It has taken a really long time for her to get used to sounds, humans and even other rabbits. She is still a timid rabbit, but she gets braver and more balanced for each day. Perhaps one day I will be able to pet her. She definitely has her issues.
I wanted My to have a "husband" hoping that a soul mate of her own would help her get more relaxed. However, My was scared of the new rabbit, and instead Mærsk and Molly fell in love. Karl and Mærsk also got on, but one day all four fell out and had big fights. In the end, I had to return Mærsk because he and Karl kept bearing a grudge and would go at each other's throats. A real shame, as Mærsk was really cuddly and friendly and just wanted kisses all day. He and Molly really enjoyed each other.
So, basically, I only have Karl and My now. I went from a quartet to a twosome in just one month I hope to one day to get a Dutch baby bunny like Molly once I feel ready again.
