Peanut has her wings

I haven't kept up with posting on here as Peanut had been having health issues.  First she had elevated liver enzymes, then she had a rectal prolapse.  Plus she has had ongoing chronic sinus issues.  She had emergency surgery to repair the prolapse but the sutures prevented her from pooping so they were removed.  I was told if it returns she would probably have to be pts as the surgery didn't properly fix it the first time and that it would continue to return as there is damage to the tissues and muscles.

A rectal prolapse is extremely rare in bunnies, she had an ultrasound to see if we could find the cause.  They also wanted a look at her liver.  Unfortunately nothing was seen on the ultrasound, so nothing could be done.  She had another prolapse in the middle of September, I was sure she would have to be pts, but it corrected itself and I had a few more wonderful weeks with her.  

Sadly the prolapse returned last night with heavy bleeding.  So I had to take her to be pts.  Her mate Fuzz was with her and so far seems to be okay.  I'm worried about him.

She was such a special bunny and had been with me almost 7 years.  She was my first rescue bunny and was with me through thick and thin.  I miss her so much and there is a gaping hole in my heart.  

I don't think I'll be able to continue with this blog, but I hope to keep up with my other blog "The Bunny Slave"  Check it out for bunny updates.

Thank you

Opal isn't going anywhere!

Finally my slave caved and adopted Opal. We all knew she wasn't going anywhere, but it took awhile for it to become official. She is now here to stay!
She was a stray and was found with grease stains on her beautiful white fur. It took awhile for them to grow out, no amount of washing helped. She went to the vet for a check-up this week and got a clean bill of health. She may have some problems with her teeth in the future, but they are still fine for now. Hopefully all the yummy hay she gets now will help even them out.

Can you tell this maple leaf blanket is the official bunny blanket? It is very soft and we all enjoy laying on it or digging it up! So you will probably see it in lots of pictures! If it ever stops raining we may get some pictures of us bunnies outside in our very own yard! We are very excited since we haven't had a yard before.

Thanks for reading!

We are back with a new arrival!

Sorry for the delay, we've had some computer issues and my slave has been very busy. But she promised me we would be posting a little more regularly now.

We have a new addition to the army! Her name is Pearl. She was an Easter present for a 3 year old girl and was quickly forgotten. Her owner was going to send her off to be someone's dinner, but my slave couldn't let that happen. She looks like a Flemish/New Zealand cross and weighs around 10 pounds. She is a very nice bunny. I'm always happy to have new members of my army.

Here she is pictured with a size 8 flip flop, she is a very big bunny! The largest member of my army.

Hoppy Birthday Charlie!

Little Charlie is 7 years old today!  He has really bad teeth but is such a little trooper.  He loves his meds, I just hold out the syringe and he comes running.  He got lots of treats and snuggles today :)

Adoption madness!

My slave has been terrible about keeping this updated, I'm very disappointed in her. I wish I could type without her help! However, she has just gotten a new job and will be working days again. Hopefully this means more time for us bunnies!

Sammy has finally been adopted! She will be going to her forever home tomorrow. She will be bonded to a sweet little boy bunn. My slave will miss her so much, but Sammy needs a home with less bunnies. Being bonded in a 2 bunn home will be perfect for her. She was bonded when she came to the shelter, but her mate passed away. Let's hope for a quick bond and a happily ever after for Sammy!

Fosters number 3 and 4 have been adopted and are doing well in their new forever home! The big brownish bunny is Flynn. He is a 3 legged Flemish Giant cross. His wifebun is Fenella, a New Zealand cross. They think he was hit by a car, his front leg was so badly broken it needed to be amputated. But he doesn't seem to miss it, he still does big binkies and runs around like crazy. They are very sweet bunnies, my slave misses them very much, but is very happy they have a new home. Being such big bunnies, having more room is much better for them.

Hopefully my slave will be able to adopt Opal now that she has a new job! Just have to wait and see how finances are after the holidays. But I don't think Opal will be going anywhere :)

Thanks for reading!

Happy 6 year Bunniversary Peanut!

I have been owned by Peanut for 6 years now!  I can't believe it.  She has been with me through thick and thin, I love her so much!  She'll be getting spoiled rotten today and getting lots of treats.  It breaks my heart that she is not very well.  She is fighting a recurrent sinus infection that is not responding to antibiotics.  But she is a little trooper and is not giving up yet!

Foster #2 Opal

OMB I can't believe it has been over a month since my last post! Time flies so fast and my slave is far too busy for my liking. Here is our second foster bunny Opal.

I particularly like this first picture, it looks like she is scheming which is what every good bunny should do. She may make an evil overlord yet, but she is a bit of a softy.

Opal is a big beautiful New Zealand white rabbit. We think she had been living outside for quite some time. She had worn down nails and grease stains on her fur from living under cars. But after a massive shed she is now nice and pure white again.
She is a really sweet bunny who will stop and smush to the floor the moment you start petting her. She is very curious and loves to explore. A public service announcement type message, always spay your bunnies! Besides the obvious reasons of preventing pregnancy and cancer. Opal was VERY hormonal prior to spay, she went through a false pregnancy, built a nest and was very stressed out. She was very protective of her nest and would box and even bite my slave. But now that she is spayed she is a big suck and shows no aggression. Also due to her high hormones she had some complications after her spay. She had a lot of bruising around her incision and some bleeding. Fortunately she healed up well and is perfectly fine now. My slave is hoping to adopt her, but needs to get a better paying job first since funds are a little tight right now. Wish her luck!

Thanks for reading!
