  Bunnies are doing very well and they are getting very social. They eat grain and fresh vegetables every day . They are tiny eating machines. I feed the littlest one Bee cat supplement by a medicine syrings.

 Unfortunately Blossum passed away today . She had an old bite  injury from when she was in the trailer in NY and it festered and got infected . She received the best vet care and medicine but she was too weak to fight it off. Her babies are old enough to live without her.

 Here is Blossum and her 5 bunnies picture. They are part of the 11 that HRN received from the Ulser County SPCA. Blossum(4 mos)seems shy and scared . Her fur and paws are unrined stained and she is a bit on the skinny side. The 4 week old bunnies on the other hand look in great shape .  There are so adorable and the fur is so so soft

Gigi has been in our home for 5 months now, and she’s kept us very entertained.  She is a well-behaved bun who enjoys her exercise time.  She digs, tunnels, throws, chews (toys only!), binkies, and runs laps around our living room.  She also has no trouble getting around on the linoleum floor in the kitchen.

Of course, when she’s worn herself out, she knows how to relax.  Gigi is a very enthusiastic dead-bunny flopper.  She enjoys leaning up against a human leg or arm, and occasionally lays across a pair of cold feet to keep them warm.  Unlike most bunnies, she enjoys being held, and will grind her teeth to ‘purr’ both on the ground or in your arms.

Gigi is a huge fan of her veggies, and will gobble them up faster than you can blink.  She eats plenty of hay, too, and her favorite treat is dried coriander.  She can smell it from two rooms away and will come running!

Gigi was surrended to the Animal Rescue League in Dedham when her owner could no longer take care of her and her roommates.  There was some evidence that Gigi may have been in fights with other bunnies, and she is not a good bonding candidate.  However, she loves her human foster family, and will make a wonderful pet for an experienced bunny owner.  She is a little skittish with loud noises, and she moves very fast, so we recommend she not go to a home with small children.  Whoever does bring this little lady home will not be disappointed.  She will make a wonderful companion for her forever family.
