my best little friend Penny died in April, I was so devastated.
It was like I'd lost a human daughter, me being a single female adult.
Penny had been my constant, loving companion for five years. I thought
I'd slowly look around for another rabbit, take my time, and one day,
if I found a very special one, I'd take it home with me.
Well, by a streak of good luck, I found that special one at the local
SPCA on my first visit since my Penny passed away. There was something
very special, different about this one. I have a male rabbit and
really wanted a female (two males would fight). I picked this one up and
we bonded so strongly. I carried this bunny around with me for three hours
at the SPCA. This little bunny licked the end of my nose and I was
hooked. At first I was shaking, afraid to ask if it was male or
female, afraid it would be a male. I was elated when I was told she
was a girl! I immediately filled in an adoption application and
anxiously waited for Easter weekend to end to be able to adopt her.
She turned out to be much more then I expected. I'd never had a rabbit
follow me around constantly everywhere I went. She even follows me to
the bathroom and waits for me to come out! I have to be careful to
always watch where i'm stepping as I've kicked her in the head many
times, by accident. Wherever I might be, she comes running when I call
her name "Bonnie". Well, one night, not long after I'd
adopted Bonnie, I was laying in bed, crying and thinking about Penny.
How long could I cry after Bonnie jumped on the bed and started to
lick my tears away?!
Being a bilingual rabbit, she knows what it means and comes running
when I ask her, "tu veut un petit biscuit?", that's,
"do you want a little cookie?", in French. She's so attached
to me that I decided to give her a last name (her grandmother thought
of this one), Bonnie LaGlue! You can probably figure out why I named
her that. Oh, my little male rabbit "Bebee" likes her too
and he follows her around like glue!!! Both my bunnies have
their own bedroom, are litter box trained and have free roaming rights
of the house. I am indeed very lucky!
