View Full Version : Camp Vermont may be getting a new camper!

Well, what was I thinking when I responded to a request from the Rabbit Rescue folks? I don't think fostering would work for me, so the next best thing would be to give another bunny a good home. So, please meet Denver, a male bunny. He is double in weight to what Cinnamon weighs, but she has the excess fur (protection from the cats?) so I think they may appear to be the same in size.

I have not done the formal/final arrangements as I just received the details about Denver, yesterday. All I know is that he is friendly, sweet, about 6 pounds, came from a home in NY state and does not want to spend any more time outside! He was altered in April and has been fostered for only a couple of days, in MASS. I suspect a trip to MASS this weekend might be on my calendar.

Oh well, I am trying to even the playing field here at Camp Vermont. I think Cinnamon needs a comrade. What do you think?

Oh yes!!! IT is only fair to have a bunny buddy for Cinnamon.

He's darling, Sallyanne, and it would be good for Cinnamon too!! Plus, you're helping one that needs your help!!!!! ;) Go get Denver!!!! :)

Oh GREAT... a bunny bun for Cinnamon!!! He is BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Go get him right now!:eek: :D

People always reccomend caution when introducing a new rabbit to an existing situation, read up on http://rabbit.org and I hope everything goes well! Some rabbits bond eadily, others take some time, and some never do. Has he been with other rabbits in his current fosterhome?

07-13-2004, 08:54 AM
Karen, thanks for reminding me. He is around other rabbits right now, as was Cinnamon when she was being fostered and neither has a problem with other wabbits! I will still follow the necessary steps in introduction. Since Cinnamon is NOT in her hutch/cage, I will keep Denver in it until all is ok with the introduction. Wish us luck. I will call the rescue lady today, to square away the details. I hope this weekend works for everyone!

Ooh another bunny!:)
I bet Cinnamon would love a bunny buddy!
If you really want to even the playing field then you will need to get two new bunnies!;)
Let me know when you are going down to get him.
I will be busy this weekend but maybe in the next couple of weeks I can bring the kids up to visit the new camper and take lots of photos.:)

Aww, what a gorgouse rabbit he is! Congrats! :D

I will drive 5 hours each way to go and pick up Denver. I will do a photo shoot upon his arrival! We cannot wait!

Oh yeah! Another PT bunny!! I hope he and Cinnamon hit it off well. I can't wait to see the pictures. Congrats, good luck and safe journey on your trip Saturday.

Ya know, reading this post reminds me of your adopting Gabe from me, way back when :) I would like to think that Gabe started a nice trend at camp Vermont, since you rescued him, as well... :)

Safe traveling this weekend, and congrats to both you and Denver, he is sure one lucky wabbit to be landing a spot at Camp Vermont!!

We will await pics.

Wow, things change quickly at Camp Vermont!

I just thought I knew everybody and there comes Denver looking cute.

As I am a very shy purrson:D who knows that wabbits have these big front teeth (of course Cinnamon is the sweetest little lady:) ):

Did you think of the fact that he may be bigger than Chloe? Bigger than Juni? As big as Miley:eek:

I wish you good luck for your trip. Why don't you stop at Karen's place to discuss rabbit issues


Zoe: I am jealous that you can go there just like that *whine*

Yeah Cinnamon gets a friend!

Watch out Miley, Juni and Chloe, you've got company coming! :D

Aaah SAS makes another weekend trip to add another furry friend to Camp Vermont! Every bunny deserves a buddy. :) Let's even up the playing field a little. Three kitties to one bunny -simply unfair! :p Seriously, I wish you a safe trip this weekend and I'm sending out a very warm welcome to Denver, a new member-to-be of the Pet Talk family. ;)

The trip will be a long one, about as long as when I took Ti to his new home. I will have lunch with Deb and Denver, the new bunny and then leave for home. I will be exhausted when I return, but it will be worth it.

Denver is coming from Manhattan (NY) and is one of many in a herd. He is not used to being on his own, so maybe Cinnamon will be fine for him. He is NOT an alpha male, but I have heard that before too! Anyway, I am prepared to keep them apart with only a screen between them until I see that they are friends, then a limited amount of shared time for awhile.

To add to this - I am dog sitting for McDoogle this week, beginning Friday. Camp Vermont will be crowded. Three cats, two rabbits and a dog. I will need a vacation after this week, I am sure!

Thanks for all of your good wishes and luck with Denver.

By the way, Denver is violet in color from what I was told. Interesting.......

Good luck in getting Denver tomorrow Sas!:)
We will be driving down to Conn. tomorrow but not leaving nearly as early as you are and we will be taking a different route from you anyway.
I hope you can post lots of photos of all of the various Vermont Campers including McDoogle the little dog!:)

07-16-2004, 11:18 AM
Oh I think Denver is adorable. Good luck. I hope Cinnamon enjoys having a friend.

07-16-2004, 03:05 PM
Good luck in getting up early:) (I know it's no problem for you:D )

I am curious to see pics of the first contacts:)

07-17-2004, 10:24 PM
