Merry Christmas, the Arrival of the Foster Bun and Another Protest at the Lazy Vegan!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! We had a nice, low-key holiday at the Lazy Vegan! A super fun Xmas Eve dinner at Grandma Snap's house, too - and when we returned home that night we had an urgent message asking if we could foster a rabbit for a few months to free up space at SaveABunny for 19 injured baby bunnies. We thought about it for about three minutes and then said yes. The bunny we are fostering was found wandering the streets of Vallejo badly infested with mites and terribly skinny a few months ago - then went to the S.F. Animal Control and eventually to SaveABunny were he was neutered by their vet and treated. I was (and still am) pretty nervous about fostering - Wasabi has been an only bun for five years now and while we sometimes talk about matching her up with another bun it has never happened (indeed, she has attacked prospective suitors on dates in the past!). But I figure we could certainly commit to a few months and put the little bun upstairs. Well, he is adorable...I picked up Jiffy Pop the day after Christmas and he has settled in very nicely upstairs thanks to the help of the foreman spending virtually all day with him on his first day here. I spend a lot of time, too, but don't want Wasabi to think she has been replaced - plus there are other creatures here (Old Toby!!) who need my help. But all in all things are going very well and in a month or so we will get professional help from SaveABunny to "introduce" Wasabi and Jiffy Pop (who we are now calling "Rufus"). So stay tuned! And in other news, we had another protest at Whole Foods - where the manager actually took flyers that two employees had accepted out of their hands and threw them in the garbage! Whole Foods Market really does not want the truth about the bunny meat to get out!
Christmas Day - putting on Old Toby's traction socks!
Meanwhile - the Queen Bun reigns downstairs.
He has a real sweetness to him. He was really scared the first morning when I went up to give him breakfast at 5:00 a.m. and thumped like crazy - but settled right down when I stayed with him and petted him.
