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 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!

i would skip the Dr Foster one. for that same price you can get a fullsize dog xpen at a local pet supply store. most every petstore carries them. and you'd be able to use it as a permanent home b/c it's large enough. they are 4 x 4 feet if set-up square... that one is only 3 x 3 feet. i have two of the gold midwest xpens. make sure it is a "walk-thru" one, that means it has a door that opens completely so you can walk in to clean or do whatever you have to do.

mine are from PetSmart. but like i said, you can get them anywhere. call first to make sure your local store has them in stock.

Actually this is for everyone, but you should check and see if anyone's selling used ones, I've seen lots of x-pen type set ups on there for CHEAP!!
