New Bunny!

Sunday when we picked up 4-H projects at the fair, we took something extra home – a new bunny!

Now I know you’re thinking I’m crazy.  After all, we already have a rabbit, a hedgehog, 2 gerbils, and 2 goldfish so recently deceased that I still count them.  WHAT AM I THINKING?

Well, last week while at the fair the girls and I ran into a lady brushing her rabbit in the rabbit barn.  She was friendly and we began talking to her.  She let the girls pet her rabbits and we told her we had one too.  She said that if we ever wanted a rabbit, to let her know because they had 22 and were starting to get out of the rabbit business.

My oldest daughter took that thought and ran with it.  Before we knew it, we were on the way home with a rabbit the owner and her daughter said they had called “Fred.”

So, although I now have two large rabbit cages in my kitchen …in twenty years (heck, in ten) I won’t have all these pets … the girls and I all love them … it’s all good 🙂

  1. Well, really, who could resist that bunny?

    And you can accumulate more little pets and get away with it, anyway, 🙂


  2. I hope you all continue to enjoy Fred for years to come. I’m glad he’s so tame.

  3. Awwww, so cute! Glad you are enjoying your new bunny. Speaking of pets, we have two cats, two fish and a rabbit. Our bird flew away. He used to visit, but we have not seen him for about a week now. It is not like him to be gone so long, but I pray he is well. Oh, before we got our rabbit we had two rats. The rats were fun, but a lot of work. I am enjoying our rabbit much more, she has a great personality, so lovable. She is a wonderful pet.
