is a sweet little girl with a big attitude, adopted from Buddies Bunny
Rescue as a companion for my boy Barney, also a rescue from an unwanted 'free
to good home' advert. They are inseparable and very much in love, two spoilt
free-range house Buns who always bring a smile to my face with their pesky antics.
Barney was around six months old when I saw his advert on Gumtree (as usual,
the child had grew bored so he was free to good home) I couldn't resist! So
he's been with me for over three years now, he's a happy, laid back boy, very
cheeky and independent, he loves kisses and snuggles and also my cats who he
will happily snuggle with and chase around, his only 'bad point' is that he
turns into a 'snapping turtle' come feeding time of his morning/evening
greens and nuggets, but really very sweet and affectionate.
Betty (formally Toyah) was adopted from Buddies Bunny Rescue about a year
later as I had come to learn that Rabbits thrive with a companion of their
own. She was around one year old at the time and now been with us for just over
two years. She is tiny! She is a happy, confident and feisty wee girl but not
as snuggly as Barney, although she will give you the odd nose nudge, she
generally prefers his company to that of mine, unless of course it's feeding
time! She is definitely the boss in this couple. They are pretty much stuck
together like glue, Barney gets anxious should I ever have to take Betty away
for routine grooming and vice versa, they always look out for each other.
They also live under my bed! lol It's a divan base which I cut holes in the
fabric then put in an old rug and some throws, they are very much happy in
their 'warren', often very funny to see the wee heads popping out in the hope
of some Noms when I pass.
I have other house buns, Ivy and Monkey (again both from Buddies) who live in
the living room. My four bunnies can see each other and are separated by a
'bunny gate' in the hall. Betty and Ivy have the odd grump and growl at each
other through the mesh, the boys, however, don't seem to bother!
