HI all...haven't been posting much lkately due to the sickies around here...(human kids, not the bun!)...but here goes...
Brownie is lonely! So, we are preparing for a little bunny girl to join our lives...her name is Lilly. She is currently at a friends...her husband let her son buy a pretty Rex girl at an FFA auction, and 2 days later, she had babies! Miley (the Mom) will be staying (I helped her build a NIC condo) but the babies need homes. I am hoping to bond her with Brownie, but of course will be prepared to keep a separate set up if need be. She is only 9 weeks old, and we will be getting her in a couple of weeks. Brownie will be a year old the end of August. She is the size of her mother now...she is a mix, Rex and not-sure-what-else, white with blackish grey and a bit of tan, and has beautiful long black eyelashes. When she was a baby before her fur came in, the had dark around her eyes and a black streak down her back. I am dying to know what she is mixed with! She will be spayed as soon as the vet says she is old enough...Brownie is neutered (3 months ago).
I realize it isn't the ideal situation, but she needs a home, and she is a calm, laid back, lovable bun (so far). Her brother is the feisty one, LOL! I would *like* to try and begin the bonding process before her spay, again, not ideal, I know? I know I will plan on taking Brownie along to the vet with her for her surgery, and they said they could be kept in adjoining cages during the stay, and I figured they could be kept side by side at home until she recovers.
I am looking to get an xpen type of enclosure for her until they can be together, and was looking into this...at Drs. Foster and Smith. Think it would work? Not as a permanent home, but for now? The open top is not a problem,as the cats are great with the bun...
Otherwise, where is a good souce for an Xpen? Like the gold colored ones?
Also, any advice would be *really* appreciated. Brownie is a laid back bun too, and keeps trying with all his heart to bond with one of our cats, but the cat thinks he is nuts, lol!
