The fair was this week, and when we went we saw some adorable bunnies and we just had to have one. Megan and I didn’t think our parents would agree to our getting one, but to our surprise, they let us! And get three no less! We got them on the fifteenth. One for me, one for Megan, and one for Carmen. We decided not to get them from the fair, but we found some on Craigslist. We each had to pay for them, but we had enough money, and Mom got the supplies. We already had a rabbit cage from a former bunny, Nibbles.
The breed of rabbit that we got was “Silver Fox”. Sounds kind of odd for a rabbit, but when they are adults, their fur gets flecked with kind of a silver color.
We all got females- Megan and Carmen both have black ones, and I have a chocolate brown one. Carmen’s has a little silver spot on its forehead, so it’s pretty easy to tell Megan’s bunny and Carmen’s bunny apart. Megan named her bunny Rutabaga, Carmen named hers (with a little help from Megan) Diamond, and I named mine Honeybunny, but sometimes I call her Honey.
This is Carmen’s (Diamond)
This is Megan’s (Rutabaga)
And this is mine (Honeybunny)
We also had a bunny leash from Nibbles,so we like to take them outside with it. Sometimes they scratch you when you pick them up and put them down, but when you get them situated, they are very calm and settle down quite nicely. They’re really cuddly and soft and fun to hold.
We put their cage in an empty calf hutch and put some straw and soft grass down, and put in some crates to sit on. They’re a lot of fun to play with.
You can look up Silver Fox rabbits on the web to get lots of information about them.
Have a good one!
