I have bunnies!  Two, to be exact.  They were originally rescued from a pet hoarder, then they lived in a school for a bit, then a science lab, then I adopted them!  They’re a bit skittish from all the travel but are so sweet.

I had a pet bunny in college.  We weren’t allowed to have cats or dogs at our apartment complex, but my roommate and I are both huge animal lovers, so we decided to get a bunny!  We were able to litter box train him and everything!  The only time he was in his cage was when we were at class or out and at night.  Otherwise, he just hopped around the apartment!  When we graduated and I moved to Florida, I left him home with my parents because I wasn’t living in a place that accepted pets.  A few years after I had moved, on one of his trips to the vet to get his nails trimmed, they discovered a lump under his chin and he had to be put to sleep 🙁  He was a great pet though, with as much personality as a dog or cat…I would get another one in a heartbeat!

I have a Holland Lop!  He’s just about the cutest thing ever, and the perfect pet for FI and me.  He is super judgmental (the rabbit, not the FI) and makes hilarious faces…he’s actually a bit of a handful, so I’m glad enough just to have him and not a pair; I know bonding is fairly challenging (but do-able!) and, as students, I don’t think FI and I have the time to devote to that.  Oliver is wonderful, though, and we love him to bits.

I think he knows what “CSA” means; every time I talk about going to pick up our share on Thursdays, his little ears perk up. “What? More fresh veggies? I wish you guys would hurry up with that!”

I used to have a rabbit, Oliver.  He was actually pretty mean. haha.  I rescued him from a shelter, and he just never liked people.  He was hardly ever in his cage, but he would always stay under couches and beds.  Someone found him abandoned in a college apartment after the girls that lived there moved out. (How could they just leave him?!) I think he just decided that he wasn’t going to trust people after that.  He wasn’t very friendly, but I was glad to give him a home. 🙂

My fiancee and I have two bunnies, Lois and Jeremy. We love them so much, but since we are rarely at home, they prefer to just play with each other instead of with us, which I guess is okay. Sometimes I wish they wanted to be held, but just as long as they are happy with each other, that’s all that matters! Here is Jeremy, I actually don’t seem to have a photo of Lois on this computer…

My bun’s story reads almost like Gretchin’s. My college roommate and I bought him from a pet store (although, knowing how many buns are out there now, I would have probably adopted from a shelter) and took him up to college with us. He had so much personality, and we let him hop around the apartment. He was a happy little guy. He lives at my roommate’s house now, unfortunetly her mom doesn’t let the bun out of the cage into the house now, and my roommate doesn’t have as much time for him, so his personality kind of diminished and now he’s kind of like a wild rabbit. I hope we can take him with us when we move back to America but I’m not sure if we can get away with it at whatever apartment we find.

 

He isn’t one eared, he’s just being a radar bunny.

i have a bunny! He is my third. His name is Henry. I am a HUGE rabbit lover. Their cute little faces just melt my heart away. He is so curious and loves to run around. I love cuddling with him! I call him my little ‘bom bom’

Awww i love bunnies!!! My friend used to have a bunny name Butters and he was the sweetest, cutest thing ever! My FI wont let me get a bunny cause he is afraid his dog will eat him, which is very possible. So i dont want to endanger a cute lil bunneh.

I have a bunny!  His name is Harper, he is 7 years old, and 6.5 pounds of cuteness.  He is litter box trained, so he get to roam around when we’re at home… although he is always getting himself into trouble.  Oh, also, he snorts like a pig!

Here’s a photo of our rescued house bunny, Basseterre (or Basse for short):

We adopted him from the SPCA last year for my b-day. Someone had tired of him after Easter and had just let him go free in the middle of their subdivision. He’s wonderfully housetrained and we built him a bunny condo and he has the run of the upstairs of our house each afternoon/night. He loves eating magazines though (as you can see above) and seems to enjoy Martha Stewart the most (don’t we all).
