Many thanks to fostermom, Jean, for her contributions to Calvin’s blog!

Calvin is a sweetie! He lives in the kitchen; anytime we walk by, he comes right up to the corner, eager for goodies. We had been keeping his food pellets in my
daughter’s play refrigerator – the little bugger figured out how to open the
fridge and chomped a hole in the bag! We have since better secured the
pellets, but I often find him sitting by the toy fridge when he is out of
the pen.

He is a hearty eater! In the morning, he eagerly anticipates his breakfast of
pellets. And so far, the only vegetable that he has rejected is asparagus! These are some of his favorites: parsley, cilantro, romaine, and red leaf lettuces, bok choy, watercress, dandelion greens, and anise; he will even nibble a bit of zucchini and red pepper! He also enjoys banana, apple, and carrot treats when offered to him. We joke that he is a bunny gourmand!

He does startle easily, though oddly enough, the sounds of the dishwasher
and garbage disposal don’t really faze him! He “smooshes down” for pets; he
happily accepts cheek massages and head strokes. I can hold him without him
fussing, but I only do that when necessary (like when playtime is over and
he has to go back in the pen). His litterbox habits are very good!

My 5 year-old daughter is gentle with him, and Calvin is comfortable with
her presence. I asked her what she would like people to know about Calvin,
and she replied, “He licked my foot and put his head in my lap. He is a nice
bunny to adopt.”

A very nice bunny to adopt :) Come visit Calvin and see for yourself what a sweet bunny he is! Please give the HRN hotline a call at 781-431-1211 or E-mail us at
