Update: Thanks for your interest in me everyone! I finally went to my forever home and am so looking forward to all the love and playtime!
Toby is a super bun that’s come a long way since her time here with me. Don’t let her name fool you, Toby is indeed a lady bun. Her adorable half grown-in shaved belly from her spay is proof of that! Not to mention her slightly diva attitude.
Toby started as a very shy girl when she first got here, but over the weeks her personality has definitely blossomed and is showing its potential. She’s very explorative, and to my shagrin, is not put off by the linoleum in my kitchen. She loves out time is always at her cage door hoping to get out.
My favorite thing about Toby is her food habits. I’ve never seen a bun SO EXCITED for food. She goes berserk every time! She also has an adorable habit where she mysteriously refuses to eat most of her food out of the dish. As soon as it’s full, she starts picking it up and tossing it over to dump the food out and eat it from the cage floor! So cute! (Video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zan_Lk9IZno) Loves her hay, greens, treats – everything! One thing to note is that she can get a bit overly excited sometimes and has been a bit nippy trying to get at food literally as it’s coming in. It’s an easy thing to work with, but may not make her the best bun for a home with small children. Oh and if you smell like food, keep your fingers away or she will go for a hesitant nibble (confession: I kind of enjoy this!).
Like most buns, Toby is not so good with being picked up and definitely prefers all four on the floor. Like I said, she used to be fairly shy, but is doing excellently at coming out of her shell. With a little more work and patience from her forever home, I have high hopes that she’ll continue to grow. She enjoys being petted now, but mostly on her own schedule. Don’t worry, it’s easy to tell when she’s ready to go.
Toby had struggled with her litter box habits in the beginning, but with a larger box, she’s become nearly perfect! I only find an occasional turd outside the box! I just wish her habits would rub off on my boys!
Does Toby sound like she might be a good fit in your home? If so, why don’t you give the hotline a call at 781-431-1211 and read up on our adoption policies and bunny basics! She’s a fun girl and would love to find her forever soon!
