Well I went on bunny quest today with my friend Mike. He's been in love with Indy and tries to take him home with him every chance he gets. We tried to go back to the feed store to see if they had any of Indy's brothers or sisters left still because of how friendly Indy is. No such luck

Well I don't know, the lady had like 8 fuzzy little lop bunnies and I couldn't stop myself and then I don't know how it went. I could have put that money to the spueter but my heart melted. Mike and I both sat there for 2 hours holding the same rabbits. I wonder if she thought we were crazy or great owners. She gave me a number of a local vet that will spueter for only $60! I will call them Monday. If so, then I can get them done now! I just feel guilty getting another since I don't have anyone fixed yet.

Mike is in the process of building me a nice hutch on wheels, I found a design that a member has here that I liked so he's going to build us both a nice hutch, and then new baby bunny...I think I'm naming her Blossom, will get Indy's old grid cage. So that will look a little nicer in my room than my ghetto sheet top cage lol. Right now she's in a temporary store bought cage which can work until the new one is built!

I'm feeling more prepared for this one though, my room is clean, everyones cage is sparkly fresh and I even bought a new 5'x8' area rug so I don't have to look at the carpet that my dad won't take out because of my fish tank. I already see poo's in her liter tray! Yipee!

 

Okay here she is

O...M...G...!!! 0_o

It's not fair. I have been looking for a harlequin loppy female for over a year as a mate for Mimzy (since I missed that one at Petco)...or just as a snuggle bunny for me. *pokes Lintini with the picture stick even though these are more than enough to rot my teeth*

*grumble* Okay, I admit it...she's beyond adorable. You should've named her Prosh...cuz she is PRECIOUS!!! If for any reason you change your mind, let me give you my address...lolz.

NICE deal on the speuters.

The others were the darker shades of the harlequin colors. MikeBun's Jack was the only solid color. I just picked her up first and she cuddled into my neck and hair and I was like AwwWWww. And Mike wanted a boy because of how Indy is vs Bun so he's convinced males are cooler. I think that if I handle her enough and give her as much attention and I do for them she will be just as neat of companion.

I was so excited that my friend Mike wanted to get a rabbit. Then I started thinking man I hope that I don't think I want another one too. But as soon as I saw her... I'm going to have to just give my friend cash and he will have to get me my bale of shaving and hay because I need to be banned from all petstores and feedstores a like. But really I am done now because there is absolutely no space. I think Indy could smell them when we came here because he has been EXTREMELY hyper all night zipping and binkin all over. I don't know if its the baby smell or the new carpet I put down lol.

Naughty, naughty. I am going to have to confiscate that beautiful bunny... errr.... I mean "contraband".

Seriously, she's breath-taking. Let us know what is up with that $60 vet. That would be really good b/c all 3 need to be done. That's always my concern when people bring more buns home before altering the ones they have.

The harly lop I was looking at so long ago was very much darker in color than Blossom. He/she had one dark patch and one light patch on each cheek...kinda like Rachel's (xdigxmexnowx) Frankie. I didn't care at that point if it was male or female...I wanted that bunny so bad, but hubby shooed me out of the store. My daughter seems to remember it as we didn't have Fiver yet, so it wasn't too long after that we found him, and I wouldn't have him if I'd taken that other bunny....still.....

Okay, off to pout now... *poutpoutpout*

god I love baby hollands like Blossom. ._. they're more innocent looking than kittens.
I don't ever think I've seen a dilute in person; my Sashimi is of the darker version, but I wish she had that many bands as Blossom does.
I'd kill for a magpie. I was so close to getting a dawrf magpie but it was a boy and I was looking for a girl D:

Oh the magpies are beautiful too! ^_^ Thanks for reminding me. I hadn't realized that harlequins came in different shades like that until doing a search of them. The black and white is even more striking than the normal color.

You just don't see many harlequins here. It would seem the Rex and the Flemish really have dominance in this state, primarily for their showing purposes I would guess. There's always about a hundred of them at the fair each year.

Linz, Blossom is cute as a button, I can see why you fell in love. --It is funny how you learn to manage space when you really want another, isn't it? Once they are bonded it will become easy. Until then, you will be on triple bunny duty, so it is good you work at a coffee place -- you will need the caffeine...j/k!

*snuggles Monkey* I wonder how she would like Blossom!

I really need to run to target to get some more grids, I'm going to turn my closet into her room so I need to also pick up some flooring at the home depot. I have to go either tomorrow or saturday, wed-fri  my orchestra is going on tour and i'll probably be too tired to want to run all over town.

Indy is upset with me, he can smell her on me even when I wash up good, he was non stop snuggly and kissing me, so much that I had to put him away last night. I couldn't sleep with all his nonsense! He's pouting since he's stuck in bunny jail. Time to release him so he can tell me how upset I've made him.

I'm going to try linoleum first because it will be easy to fit in my car. If she doesn't like that then I'll try coroplast. The plastic store is about 10min away. And then if that doesn't work, then I'll grab some indoor/outdoor carpet I guess. It kinda just depends on how she's going to act. Indy has coroplast with fleece on top and he doesn't chew it at all. Then I tried to lino with Bun with fleece on top and the fleece was getting destroyed so now she has a towel and some squashed soft bird house to sit on.

Coroplast was really hard to fit into my mustang with the huge piece I bought lol.

I love your videos! Blossom is a tortoiseshell, isn't she? That coloring combined with her chubby little body is a serious test for anyone to resist. I am sooooooooo glad there are no rabbits sold where I live... my pet quota has already been met. I am kind of cheered up by the fact that Blossom is with someone lke you who reallly cares about her, not just her cute looks.

I was going to ask, does the fish tank pump gurgling not bother you?

My fishtank water level dropped about 3 inch that's why it is so loud again, I kind of find it relaxing. If it gets down any lower it will. I've always had a fish tank in my room since I was a baby, I can't sleep without one.

here's a thought. on discovery, maybe you could tell them she's the accidental offspring of Indy & Bun *snort* and that it's lucky there was only one kit and that you are doing the responsible thing in keeping her and getting them all fixed and by the way, could you guy's chip in for that? Lol Can you imagine a {himmi/nethie} and a {E.spot/dutch/whatever he is} producing Blossom a harli marked lop? Stranger things have happened I guess.

Anyway, goodluck for when the moment of discovery happens. We'll be here for you...

Lintini, I can't believe you've kept a 3rd bunny a secret in your room all this time. Maybe they know, and sneak in to peek at her, but are waiting to see how long before you tell them?

Love the pix of her sleeping.

Because my house is two stories, my parents rarely come downstairs because it's just a few bedrooms down here and a family room. My mom will come down here for laundry but they don't open my door because they know Indy is out.

I'm really excited that I mailed out my application for the voucher. My checks even have the humane society on them so I know the lady will probably get a chuckle over that

Sorry MirBear...Lin's going to send Blossom to me if the 'rents make a fuss. ^_^
They won't make you give her up if they do find her, will they? If they did would your gentleman friend keep her for you till you found your own place? 0_0

I was wondering that too Mimz....What do you think they will do Lintini? I just saw this post and realized this was a "hidden" bunny. My parents would have killed me if I did that, especially since they would have known I would not have the money for vet care in emergencies etc and the burden would be on them.

I have to admit though....When I was 12, I bought a mouse without my parents knowing, and hid it in my room for a week before they found out. They were not happy. They didn't get very mad, but they made me take it back to the pet store.

Your room will soon become obvious though that something is going on....as territorial scent and marking may reveal the secret.

Seriously though....not to be a big party pooper of cuteness...but what is your plan --- keeping this a secret until you move out or what happens if the bunny does get sick or something? I'd be so anxious in your shoes.

My parents wouldn't do that. I'll show you my list of pets I've brought home without me asking

2 cats.
1 dog.
50 gallon fish tank
1 chinchilla - which turned into 3
3 rabbits
3 guinea pigs

I bring home stray dogs... etc lol

My parents will be upset, tell me I'm crazy, etc. But they wouldn't ever make me get rid of a pet. I take care of them fully and they don't have to do anything for them. My mom is on board to always help me though when I go out of town. I've taken in lots of animals without asking. Really my parents should give up already. It's in my blood, I love animals, my dad shouldn't act so surprised because my grandma did the same exact thing so they will just get over it. I just keep everything clean and stay on their good sides and it's okay. I think there are alot worse things that I could have done. I've been an excellent daughter for them, straight A's all through school, holding down the same job for almost 2 years now and working a 2nd job as well as college full time. I don't party excessively, I always try to make them happy and proud, I got a full scholarship to school playing french horn...I mean things could be so much worse than me just loving animals and caring for them. They should accept me for who I am and what I love but I know they just think i'll get out of control, well they say I already am. lol

If any of my pets get sick, my parents would help me with the vet bills if I couldn't afford them. Even though they get upset with me and my pets...the pom dog I brought home ended up being my mom's loyal companion and she even offered to pay me for him so I wouldn't take him with me when I move out. I was like mom...he's yours...he loves you, im #2! you are #1! And I am getting the blame for the second dog...which is now my dad's dog. She loves my dad and he carries her around the house like a football...its hilarious. a 6'4'' man who was in the olympics and super buff carrying around a 15 lbs dog. lol. Anyways...my parents wouldn't let any of our pets suffer and I'll get get eye rolled and wow you are so crazy lindsey why did you get another rabbit blah blah blah you need to pay for her spay too blah blah. That's about it, nothing serious. I'll probably bring her up to my mom in a few days so she'll see that face and forget about being mad :p

Sounds like you make them very proud and they are more than willing to help with vet care in an emergency. That's a relief - no wonder you are not anxious about it.

I just read your animal list to my husband and he laughed and said "They have a Ms. Doolittle on their hands!" and from the sounds of it, there are some "Doolittle" genes in your entire family. It's all making more sense now. 

Looks like you are trying very hard to get Indy neutered asap so at least that will be less to worry about as well. We've had several posts about accidental litters lately, that certain situations now make me more nervous than ever.

Keep us updated with what the Director says (if she ever becomes available!) - hopefully she'll be able to give a discount.

BinkyBunny - The check and form for the voucher is going in the mail to the director in the morning, I got ahold of her, she sent me the form and I'm sending her $70 in a check and then she sends me the voucher and helps me set up an appointment.

lol...Sorry Lin, my bad. Somehow I got the impression you were about to grad high school (Okay, I feel stupid. >_< )
Teaching huh? Good for you! I love music, but not enough to teach it. Can't even manage teaching my kids to play piano. *shakes head* No patience.

I don't like being onstage, MB, that's the weirdness of it. But at one time I loved being able to make people smile with my voice.

After years of abuse (yelling at the kids when they were young and intractable) I have nothing left to even call a squeak right now. But the daughter and I are sitting around watching Idol in the eves and it's funny to see how many people think they're going to get past Simon. ^_^

You know what? If my kids brought home animals I wouldn't be upset about it. But I'm always doing that myself so I'm probably on the rare side of the tolerence spectrum.

On the other hand...my 14 year old keeps telling me I'm going to be a hoarder. I told her she watches too much animal planet.

I have to admit, ashamedly, that my daughter and I tend to pile things up. Not to the point of hoarding because we DO throw stuff away, but we just have too much stuff for our size of house and we both despise cleaning. (It really gets my allergies going, since the dust in this house is impossible to get completely out.)
I don't know how we got that way because I used to be a heck of a neat freak and I thought I'd taught my kids to be too. (When they were little, all during the day I'd collect all their toys for them and put them all in neat rows and junk...you know, real OCD stuff.) But now we've got so much junk between all of us, it's not even possible to manage the mess. I'm looking forward to having some giant garage sales this summer, if I can pry the son away from his videogames long enough to help me move some things outdoors. Whatever doesn't sell should just go to the Salvation Army. And hopefully I can get myself let go of some of the stuff I've been keeping for no good reason other than I just don't want to burn the calories to get rid of it.

When I was 6 I remember my folks throwing out everything I owned with the exception of my clothes, my bed, my blankets and my desk, because my room had become cluttered. It hurt me so terribly and I felt so betrayed that I swore I'd never let it get bad enough to cause them to do that again and I stuck with it for most of my life. Present day though, my kids and hubby are so lackadaisical that I get tired of tidying up after them because it just goes to heck the minute I turn my back...so....I guess I became the same way.
So I'm on strike. Permanently. lolz....I told the hubby to just get me a Con-ex container, and I'll move all MY stuff out there and they can have the house for all THEIR stuff. It could be a museum...we could charge admission! xD

Okay, now I sound like George Carlin. >_<

Anyway, I don't see how people can get that way with animals. I mean, the ones who don't clean up the litter boxes because they have so many and the scariest thing is they don't know when some of their animals have passed away... Jeez. In fact, the cleanest things in the house are my pets' areas. I tend to those before I do anything else. I look at it as a blessed distraction from all my other work. ^_^ And they don't give me lip when I tell them to pick up after themselves...lol.

Okay, back to topic...*ahem*
Did you ever get the roof on the pen, Lin? I was worrying that Blossom would find a stray button off one of your shirts or something...since she's not tall enough to actually pull them down. ^_^ I keep my spare pen mats on top of Fiver's habitat to keep anything above him from falling haphazardly into the pen with him. He's gotten to feeling rather vulnerable when I have to wash all of them because then he has no ceiling! 0_o You'd think he'd enjoy the extra light he gets from up there.

Id feel guilty that i wouldnt be able to spend enough time with each of them. I seem to be a quality over quantity person.

I agree with you, I think it's a good way to be. Of course, the hard thing in that situation is to see the animals out there that you wish you could give that time and attention to and you've already caught your limit. But yes, I get days where I wish I could just spend all my time with one or the other of my pets and there just aren't enough hours in the day.
Also, I think it depends on where you live as well. Here in Alaska, I just don't see it as right to have too many pets either for space reasons, or because of the weather. I have felt so sorry for our dogs, who were all outdoor animals. I can think of some harsh winters they spent, despite all the things we did to keep them comfortable. I wouldn't put an animal through that again for all the tea in China.
That's why having bunnies is such a delight. They are right here with me in my room and I can see and talk to and play with them anytime I like, don't have to put on three layers of clothing and take a flashlight. ^_^

Bun could care less about her scent as long as she has raisins.
This is disturbing and I'm glad Indy is getting fixed in the upcoming week or next...I hoped into bed to nap, i've had little sleep because of my band tour this week. He sprayed. He sprayed my face. I let out a shriek, put him in his cage and showered and changed my pillow. Indy isn't taking it well so the sooner I can get him neutered the better. I hate it how he does that in my bed. IN MY FACE. It was so stupid cuz we were snuggling too for about 30min and he was tooth purring, then I stopped and *DIG DIG DIG* *Spray* AHHYEAAAAAAAA!!! I think he is jealous and upset so I'm pretty frantic to get his neuter done so I don't have to deal with the peeing. Why is it only in my bed? Jeezussssss. Blossom had free time in the guest room and was binky'n all over. So darn cute. Indy is currently shaking his cage in frustration to why he can't come out. Blarrgh!!!

Lintini, I wanted to say that I am glad for your rabbits that they are with you because for you the sun sets and rises on them. But many people will read this thread and see the cute as a button bunnies at their pet stores... and they may not have a mother like yours to watch them whenever. My point is, I think it is best to wait with getting another rabbit til yours are fixed and bonded.

Petzy I see your point, but I don't think anyone here wants to advocate getting more buns than they can handle. It is very hard not to get all googly eyed over such a lovely creature as Blossom. Perhaps I can choose my words better when I post to not give any new members or lurkers the idea that we are all hopping mad (no pun intended) to bring home every bunny we see.
I don't go into Petco intentionally 'looking'. I do know they have adoption days, and since I will eventually be interested in making my trio a quartet, I hope the time will be right when it's right. If not, I'm doing great with my three and am very happy with the situation the way it is.

I feel your pain, Lin, about the spraying. When Mimzy first came home, the other two bunnies he was abandoned with were definitely maturing males and there was urine EVERYWHERE they went. Luckily, it wasn't indoors at the time, but all the more reason for us to capture them as well and find them homes, which we managed to do for one of them anyway. The other disappeared before we could corral him.
This was why we thought Mimzy was a girl, he was always cowering under these two REW's and their dominant behavior. It was quite sad, really.

I'll see if I can find some pix of my local area for you. I have yet to be able to capture the aurora, my cameras just don't have the correct shutter speed for the task.

Well unfortunately people do purchase animals without thinking, then see how truly hard it is to care for them and throw them to the side. Guinea pigs also have a huge problem with this, you should check out craigslist and see how many people want to rehome their pigs. It's terrible. I have the means and the money to care for a 3rd and I am waiting for my voucher to come in the mail for Indy's neuter. I agree it wasn't the greatest idea to bring her home before Indy's neuter, but I am glad I got her because I can properly care for her and give her a great life. I don't mean to advocate to bring tons of rabbits home, I do my best to give them hours of play in different bunny proof bedrooms and have them in large NIC grid cages when I am not around. I love my animals to death and want what is best for them. I had been thinking about a third rabbit for awhile and I knew if I was helping Mike find a rabbit of his own I was probably getting a 3rd as well. But you are totally right, not having them fixed first and not trying a bond yet...probably not very smart of me. Even so I am very willing have 3 separate cages if it doesn't work out. I have a good feeling though for how laid back Indy is that I can at least get one bond. One step at a time though. Hopefully the voucher comes tomorrow or the next and then I can set up the vet appointment! Then get to do it all over again for Bun But I hope I didn't give anyone the wrong idea, especially lurkers. Because you should always be prepared for a new pet and know everything you can on how to provide for your new family member and what to expect. Like, I knew she wasn't going to be liter trained, and boy is she messy, and the cage grinds have to be doubled up because she can stick her head through it, so I had to buy extra grids and expect to clean her cage a few times a day. Also, she isn't going to stay that tiny and cute, well probably still very cute but she will grow up and those poo's get bigger and the messes get bigger too! I think that is also a misconception people have. They see this tiny ball of fluff and then it grows up and is stinky (only because they don't clean it's tray often) then complain eww I have a huge stinky bunny then give it to a shelter because it lost its novelty. Anyways, I hope everyone understands that my animals are in a loving well cared for home and that neuter day is right around the corner for Indy and spay day is around the corner for Bun as well Still a bit away for Blossom though!

Lintini, it sounds like your parents have the means to help you care for a 3rd rabbit. You have mentioned that you are concerned about the cost of spaying and neutering. Luckily you have been able to find help but you on your own don't have the means. You are very lucky that your parents tolerate this and help you. In my experience doing rescue, this is not the case most of the time and even on the forum we hear it from members who rely on their parents and their parents are not open to the care required.

It would only become an issue if the vet bill went over 2k. We had a cat get bladder stones and then kidney failure and all that went well over 4k. I have a credit card for that rainy day stash, or well i should call it my vet emergency card. It's hidden away in my room so I never am tempted to use it. I keep it for my cats as well. But I am 100% sure my parents would help me, if the bill was more expensive then what my card could handle then I would just have to pay them back. I am really lucky that they would help me like that.

That's exactly what I mean, Lintini, your parents are willing to help you and that's great. Many in your position are not so lucky. Vet bills are an enormous cost and believe me, I know, I spend alot on my rabbits but I'm self supportive and you are not. Eventually there will come a time when you aren't going to have their support.

Your rabbits are young but it won't be long before they are "old" or there is a serious medical issue and the vet bills could add up. You may be lucky and it doesn't happen, but you may end up with a rabbit who has chronic problems that rely on monthly vet visits and that is going to add up. Heck, they don't even have to be old, they could be young like Mimzs Mum who is dealing with dental issues and Mimz's is not old.

My rabbit Pepe who is about 6 years old has had 2 serious bouts of stasis that have cost me alot each time not to mention $200 a month for his dental problems that will be on-going.

Yup! Animals are expensive to take care of! Hopefully I won't have to deal with serious medical issues at all. *knock on wood*

I gave up and couldn't take it anymore and showed her to my mom today. She just said I was crazy and that my clothing is going to smell like rabbit. Oh well. My dad was out of town but he's probably going to strangle me like Homer does to Bart Simpson :p lol

Props to you for telling your mum at last. Mum's need to know these things.
