Can't Stop Touching Her Eyes
Join Date: May 2006
Everyone knows I have been wanting a third bunny that actually likes me. I tried to get that Momma bun but she was "sold". I have been searching around the internet for a large lop eared male but no one was really jumping out as being extra loveable like I want.
Well, every weekend I would see this sweet little dwarf bunny girl with himalayan markings. She has to have been there 6 weeks now. I asked the woman that brings them how much more time she thought this bun had. She admitted she was beginning to worry. I talked to Jay - who has been insisting NO MORE BUNS! Well when I told him her time was most likely coming up he agreed to let me foster her. She is just sweet as pie. She has already let me trim her nails. She lets me hold her and even put her head down for me to pet!
I have her in the small purple cage for the time being. My buns have come over and checked her out. I let oliver sniff her back and it went fine. I guess I stupidly thought magic had happened. I let her near Ophelia. MISTAKE NUMBER ONE. My timid little girl immediately bit Penelope's tush. I stuck my hand between them. MISTAKE NUMBER TWO. At least Ophelia didn't do any damage to Penelope. I cannot say the same thing for my knuckle. I deserved it though. I was the one being stupid. I am glad it was me and not Penelope that was bleeding tonight. I will not be making that mistake again. Besides I know fosters should not be let to play with the other buns. I just thought if it was love at first sight for them maybe we would keep her. I do wish I could let them play together. I guess bunnies don't work that way.
Now I have to get her into the foster program. I am hoping since I am willing to keep her at our house and pay for her spay they will let her in the program.
Even after the spat she still seems a LOT happier than she was earlier today at Petsmart. She is usually happy and playing in ther cage. This weekend she was totally depressed looking. I swear she gave up.
I gave her a small salad and she is eating it now. I am not sure if she ate any pelllets yet but she was checking them out. And I hope she picks up the bowl - I hate water bottles.
She was already cleaning herself. She ate some hay, too.
Sorry it's so long - I could just go on and on about the kids! I am one of those moms.
