About Us
Trixie, Sunny, the Pet of the Day
Name: Trixie, Sunny
Age: Seven years old, Unknown
Gender: Female, Male
Kind: Dwarf rabbit, Lop rabbit
Home: Luton, UK
   We had Trixie, the darker bunny, from a local animal shelter five years ago. She was a stray so nothing was known of her history but it was thought she was approximately two years old. She lived with an older neutered male named Dusty for two years before he passed away at nine years.

    For four weeks Trixie was on her own, although she could see the other rabbits through the chainlink fence. We decided to go to the animal shelter at the weekend to see if there was a lonely male needing some company as rabbits really should have a friend if possible. On the Thursday afternoon we had a knock on our door and it was our post lady to say she had a rabbit in her car. What had happened was she and a friend were walking their dogs in the local park and their dogs surrounded 'something'. The lady went over to investigate to find it was a rabbit keeping very still as it was terrified. She picked it up and luckily the dogs had not harmed him. Her friend suggested bringing him to us as she knew we had rabbits and thought we would know what to do. We immediately informed our local vets and put posters up in the park hoping that someone would be delighted to find their lost rabbit. After three weeks no-one claimed him so we had him neutered, waited for him to heal and named him Sunny.

    We put aside a day to bond him with Trixie as bonding sometimes doesn't go smoothly but as soon as these two saw each other it was love at first sight. They have now been together for three years and love each other very much, where one goes the other follows. They love to play with their wicker basket toys and cardboard boxes and are always grooming one another.

    We now believe Sunny was probably abandoned in the park but Fate intervened when our post lady found him and brought him to us to his forever home. We hope we will have many more years of sharing our lives with Trixie and Sunny.
