Honeygirl and I are going to the HRS adoption day in our area, hoping to find her a friend.
I'm really nervous..
I think she's nervous too.. shes been looking at me funny all day as I'm fussing over her to "be a nice girl."
She doesn't like her travel kennel AT ALL. She grunts and makes such a racket whiile shes in it. I hope I am able to get her out when we get there!
Wish me luck!
Pity they don't give more info. I followed the HRS links to him and it doesn't tell much, how old, whether he's entered neuterdom etc. Did see " Pending Adoption" notice though......is that you??!
He looks young and a cute lil fluff ball !
Thought you might be interested to see....not for adoption but just to see...there was a tri-coloured dutch there named Betty! I remember when you were establishing Kit's breed how some said how rare they were! Her markings are pretty perfect.
I don't visit bonding section too often but always laugh when hearing of another bun going of to speed date! I saved these pics from lolbunnies.com a while ago. If only it could be done this way!
Its funny you mention Betty, that was the one I was originally inquiring about when I contacted the HRS. They thought when bonding Honey that I would have better chances with a male.. but she is still in my head as a back up plan. They said that there are often times where you have to try more than one rabbit-- but I have my fingers crosses that Clyde is the one I already paid for him and signed the adoption contract, and I am possibly dropping Honey off tomorrow-- just waiting to hear back from the fosterer. It would have happened a lot sooner, but with the holidays, things have been quite busy for everyone.
I'm really excited and nervous, and I sure hope it works out.
OH-- facts about Clyde:
He is a little over a year, neutered, and currently lives with his brother and sister. His brother and sister were adopted at the same adoption meet-- and Clyde was the remaining one. He is the smallest of his siblings, and most laid back-- he is quite a cuddle bunny and isn't easily excited by being picked up, or loud noises. He's about 3.5 pounds.
I've been reading up on longhaired rabbit care-- Jersey Woolly hair isn't nearly as hard to take care of as angoras, but still gets matted and has to be brushed on a regular(atleats weekly) basis. Anything else you longhaired rabbit owners think i need to know??
THOSE PICTURES ARE ADORABLE! I wish bonding was that easy :/
