OH MY BUN - a Barehanded Bunny Rescue and Turning the Cabin into a Bunny Foster Home at the Lazy Vegan
It was kind of a typical week at the Lazy Vegan with the bunnies continuing to re-establish their bond after the Day of the Bite, the donkeys having fun in the sun and ...OH MY BUN, a barehanded bunny rescue! I went with my friend and fellow bunny advocate, Chris, to check out an area where there have been reports of sightings of many bunnies (which Chris himself saw on another day)...down a long gravel road and near the paved bike trail, and freakishly close to the freeway. At any rate, on the day we went to scope things out we didn't see any bunnies and were about to leave when Chris spotted one...and within three or so minutes, amazingly was able to catch her! We were in shock - plus unprepared - didn't have a carrier with us. So Chris held the bunny while we walked back to his van (and past two big dogs) and I drove back to Sonoma Humane...a very exciting and stressful day for a little bun.
Unfortunately, the shelter was at maximum capacity - something we found out the next day when we found out that our rescued bunny was transferred to another shelter. But we will keep tabs on her, and in the meantime, some bunnies were "returned" - so we have transformed our cabin into a nice short-term foster place, with our first bunny guests scheduled to arrive this weekend! There should not be any problem with our own bunnies fighting since they will not see nor smell the visiting buns!
