His story, in brief, is that in about June of 2005 I looked out the window at our bird feeder and saw several of the neighborhood cottontails, as usual, but there was also another bunny that was tan and white and did not seem to belong.
I decided he did not belong here and would not be safe from some of the predatory wildlife in the neighborhood, so I offered him a few carrots and he took them out of my hand.
The next day he was there again and so I gave him some more carrots and, as he was eating them, I picked him up and put him into a cage I had gotten the day before. We tried to find his owner and really had not plan to keep him.
After a few weeks of putting out info and putting out an add that we had a bunny free for a good home, we got only 1 call and upon reviewing what they wanted and knowing they had no experience with a House Rabbit either, we decided to keep him.
We had him neutered, as instructed in all the manuals and we started learning how to raise a House Rabbit, mostly from Bunbun's training.
He turned out to be one of a kind from what we heard from many sources. He never tried to chew up things that were not his to chew, he learned to go potty in the potty box and area reserved for that and he learned to know his name and he even seemed to know what time it was.
Once he had the run of the house during the day and knew he was to sleep in the kitchen he would always run to the kitchen door to tell us it was bed time. He knew when he wanted snacks that he could run to the kitchen door and wait just outside of it to tell us he thought he needed a snack.
The only thing that was bad and unfair to him, was that he had a dental disease that required him to have his teeth filed down every so often and that procedure required him to go to the vet and be put under anesthesia for a time. He learned how to ride in the car in his carrier and he knew how to take the bumps and curves when we told him one was coming. He really did not deserve that pain and so at least he is now in a place where he does not have to endure all that.
There is a lot more that could be told about Funny Bunny, but it is too hard to tell right now and I have said enough for now anyway. I will be very happy to see him again at the Rainbow Bridge.
