10/8/07 UPDATE: Sunflower is now up for adoption. She is completely healed and ready to bring some spark into your life. She is high-energy and would be a great addition to any home. She would do well being a free range bunny if bunny-proofed properly. Her litter box habits are excellent and she enjoys racing around, doing binkies and being cage-less if possible.

Hi All! My name is Sunflower! My foster mom calls me her little Sunflower Seed or Sunflower-Power, but mostly…”little devil”. I’m a young, tiny dutch dwarf with plenty of energy and I never tire, unless it’s bedtime and then I do a perfect “dead bunny flop” and go to sleep like a nice little bunny.

I was brought into foster care by a very caring woman who found me outside. Apparently, as I’ve overheard, I wasn’t in too good of shape. I had something called cuterebra maggots and it was pretty icky. Thankfully the kind woman took me to the vet where he gave me all sorts of yucky medicine. Then I came to HRN and got more yucky medicine, but also lots of TLC…ahhhh, just what the doctor ordered. I’m not ready for adoption yet, as I’m still recovering and then I will be spayed. Once that’s done, I’m ready to come home with you!

As you’ve probably noticed, my ears are pretty short. I don’t really remember what happened, but I heard the vet say that by the way they have healed, they were probably cut off. Goodness, people can be so mean! But I’m told that my little “van gogh” look makes me even more beautiful and cute, at least my foster mom tells me so. She says I look like a squirrel or a guinea pig too. Imagine that?! It also makes me really aerodynamically inclined so I can zoom around the room at warp speed! Once I start, I can’t stop. I’m here! I’m there! I’m everywhere! Hey, who needs those ears anyway? They only slowed me down.

I’m telling you, if you adopt me, I will keep you entertained for hours. I love to explore every little nook and cranny in the room. And the higher it is…well, let’s just say, I’ll find a way to climb it! So you’d better keep an eye on me just to make sure I don’t get hurt. Because I am “Sunflower, the Fearless…Bungoddess of the Mountains!”. I think I also might be interested in finding a friend because every day I try my hardest to get to my foster mom’s buns. But darn it, she won’t let me! What gives?

Even though I’m a very active little girl, I’m also a sucker for pets. I will absolutely melt as soon as you start to pet my head and I’ll seek you out to pet me too. I don’t mind being held and smothered with pets and kisses, but like most bunnies I hate the act of picking me up. It’s scary for me, so I would prefer if you only picked me up when it was absolutely necessary. Otherwise, I’d like it if you were down on my level and I could use you like a jungle gym, stopping every so often for some love.

So whad’ya say? Will you adopt me when I’m ready?
Love,
Sunflower :)
P.S. My foster mom will post better pics of me when she gets a chance.
