Happy (HOPPY!!) Birthday to Wasabi, Making Progress on the Fixer and the Search for a Real Raincoat at the Lazy Vegan!
A "greeting card" from one of Wasabi's pals on BunSpace!
HOPPY Birthday this week to Wasabi!!! It was two years ago when I first saw this little black and white bun in an outdoor cage with no bedding and a turned-over plastic container that should have at least had water. I still vividly remember "the moment" when I saw the fluffy little creature stand up in her cage, seemingly looking in my direction. I was coming back from an early morning run. Seeing the bunny stand up (which I later learned is called "periscoping" made me trespass to see her cage more closely - and when I saw how awful it really was up close, I took action! Went directly to the front door and knocked away. By late afternoon, the bunny was being transported in one of my cat carriers to our house...and the rest is history! After spending one night in the cabin, the bun was immediately situated inside our home after a trip to the Humane Society gave me all the info I needed about keeping a house rabbit - something I had never heard of before. I was amazed at how Wasabi quickly took to a litter box! And, of course, by now I know how complex and intelligent and just plain wonderful house rabbits are. So HOPPY birthday, Wasabi! Here's to many more hoppy birthdays ahead!
I had wanted to take Wasabi to the bunny playground to celebrate with her own kind, but we didn't get there...maybe in a couple of weeks. We'll bring the rest of the hay cookies to share!
Oh, yum. Dandy greens!
