About Us
Thumper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Thumper
Age: 9.5 years old
Gender: Male
Kind: American Sable Rabbit
Home: Hendersonville, Tennessee, USA
   In late 2005, after losing my second rabbit days after I adopted him, I decided it was time to look into adopting another rabbit so my first baby girl Maggie would have a playmate. After contacting Laurie from Nashville Bunny Rescue, I decided to adopt this precious little boy who was dropped off at a vet's office that didn't have a clue on how to take care of a rabbit. After seeing him for the first time, I completely fell in love with him and haven't stopped loving him since.

    Thumper is an American Sable rabbit, and he's a quiet, chunky lovable boy that enjoys the simple things in life such as taking naps with his mommy, getting bunny massages and spending time with his love, Miss Maggie Moo. That's her in the picture with him, we say she's his bunwife. They both love grooming each other and hiding in their cube. He has added so much bunny love to my life and I'm so greatful he has chosen his forever home to be with me.

    He is 9.5 years old (Maggie is the same age as well). He recently started losing weight and his age is starting to show through. He is a momma's boy and loves to sleep on the couch with me. He loves his Maggie and never leaves her side, even when she has clearly had enough cuddle time and wants to be alone. His favorite food is dried banana, oats, parsley and baby romaine. He loves his hidey tent from his Brother Jumper and enjoys catching some rays when he is allowed outside (with supervision of course!).
