Bean was adopted as a "girlfriend" for my first bunny
She is a mostly white mini lop
rabbit with black beauty marks on her ears, around her eyes, half of her
furry cottontail and two moon-shaped marks near her mouth. She is very
special because she had been at the shelter for a while waiting for a good
home. But unfortunately she has cataracts in both eyes, which deterred
many families from adopting her.
When I first decided to adopt another bunny, it was as a companion for
CinnaBun. I brought him to the shelter to meet three to four different bunnies
to see if there was any connection with one particular one. When
CinnaBun and Vanilla Bean first met it was "love at first sight". I
knew that she was the one for him. When I found out she had cataracts
it didn't bother me. I just asked "how do I take care of her?"
Cataracts in bunnies is similar to humans. They lose their eyesight,
but unfortunately it can't be cured like in humans. She is totally
blind in one eye and semi-blind in the other. But when you see CinnaBun
and Vanilla Bean running around the house, eating their food, bathing
each other, enjoying their daily activities together, you wouldn't even
know she had anything wrong with her. She is very sweet and loving with
me and CinnaBun. I can see why he loves her so much. They are the best
of friends... and thats all thats important.
