He's Here!!! :D

Post by CinnamonPearl on Tue Jan 02, 2018 12:21 pm

Finally, finally, finally! I took Clover home from the shelter today! It was so fun! Everyone at the shelter was so happy they were adopting out a rabbit, apparently it happens so little that the woman who helped me hardly knew if rabbits had their own process or if she should do it like a cat! But he's here and he's home! I wish I could get pictures, but he's feeling a little shy and currently hiding in the cardboard box house I made him. He's messing around with his fleece blanket, heehee!

I'm so mad at myself, though. X___X At the shelter, I was supposed to ask for some of the pellets he's on so I can transition him over to my food, but I forgot! So now I have to go back and get some. Bit embarrassing, but I don't want Clover to get a bellyache, so I'll stomach it! (No pun intended.) He's such a sweetie, though! I found out that he came to the shelter because a woman found him living in her garden. He's so tame though that I'm certain he was a released pet. And AAAH AS I WAS TYPING THIS HE JUST CAME OUT FOR A LITTLE! I think he likes the sound of my typing actually, he peers out whenever I start again. Hopefully I'll be able to snag pics soon! But yes, I have a bunny now! Very Happy I'm so happy!

I've shown rabbits since I was about 7 and a half, so breed identifying is something I've gotten used to. Its a fun hobby to pick up! I'm excited to see pics and hear about how his life goes on. He's found a lucky home. Heart

That's great you're giving a shelter bunny a nice home. ♡ At a lot of the shelters under an hour away from our house, some have bunnies that tend to be there for so long, it's not even funny.

Yeah, I can imagine. Sad This place has the same problem with cats. Some of their cats have been there for 3-5 years. The bunnies, not so much, but the ones with behavior problems do get left behind. Then some lady who owns a rabbit sanctuary in Connecticut scoops em up.

I got his pellet food! The shelter workers were lamenting for not having remembered that either. So mutual error! ^w^ I got his pellets though, more than enough to transfer him to my feed.

Hes a sleepy boy! Hes been hanging out in his cardboard box house, either chewing on it or playing with his fleece blanket or sleeping. Hes only come out a couple of times. If hes still feeling shy by evening, Ill move some of his hay over to his box just so his digestive tract doesnt get messed up. Rabbits and their stupidly weak GI tracts, am i right? But hes pretty brave so hopefully hell come explore soon.

I know; most of those shelters I'm referring to have that problem with cats and some dogs BIG time. And want to know why? Because they're non-profit. Putting an animal down is not inhumane, it's one of the nicest ways you could do it. Like, it's more 'inhumane' to keep those animals in cages for years or many months! Gaah

It's a tough moral debate, certainly, whether putting down homeless animals is a cruelty or a kindness. I'm personally more for no-kill shelters, but that's not to say there's no room to argue that putting them down is inhumane.

On a lighter note! I got some pictures! Very Happy They're not the best, but here he is! Anyone have any idea on breed? My friend thought he might be some sort of New Zealand mix but was ultimately unsure.

Congrats! What a lucky rabbit-man. I don't know rabbits but he is so big! How fun.

The only "small pets" my shelter currently has is 11 rabbits and a turtle. Bet he feels out of place. Laughing

Update! I got some better pics! Very Happy Clover is feeling much bolder now that evening's rolled around, and he came out and let me turn the light on and get some good pics of him. So here he is in all his glory! What do you all think?

Clover is quite the handsome man!!! I love his coloring. He looks so sweet!

Is he litter trained?

Wanted to say again, the enclosure you created for him is awesome! He is one lucky bunny! Bliss

My first thought when I saw his coloring was silver fox, or some sort of NZ/mix. Here's a silver fox rabbit for reference; the amount of silvering varies so you might want to check out some other pics, too.
