was given to me and she was "with child" at the time which I did not
know. Shortly afterwards she gave birth to three little bunnies. I tried to
separate her from her husbunny but it was too late, so then she had two more
little babies and 30 days later two more. Finally I wised up and got her
husbunny, Thumper, fixed. Then I had to get all the babies snipped. I kept
them all - once you have them you just can't give them up. They all have
their own room except Sadie - she rooms with me. Thumper went to the Rainbow
Bridge a month or so ago. Sadie gets a salad, plus a little plate of three slices
of strawberries, two or three blueberries and a couple of sprigs of mint every day.
She also loves to eat roses.
Sadie is a little on the elderly side for a rabbit. Here she is in her tiara
sent to her from a bunnyman friend on BunSpace. She used to do binkies and
play more when she was younger. However, now Sadie just kind of hangs out in
her little area made of rugs, a cardboard house, a poopie box filled with
hay, her food dishes and a few toys. She has two chairs to sit in but seldom
sits in them now that she is a little overweight. At night sometimes I put
her next to me on my bed and she lays next to me and I give her bunny treats.
When she wants a headrub she rubs her head up against my hand. She and I are
extremely close since I nursed her through Stasis once from which she almost
died. Sometimes when I am holding her and kissing her she makes little sweet
noises and licks me. And yes, she is very affectionate!
