I waited to introduce the newest members of our family until after the Easter holiday. I know that a lot of people get things like chicks and rabbits as Easter gifts for their children without a plan and unfortunately a lot of those animals don't make it. I was actually surprised at the number of photographers that have done the same thing, I always just assumed that they borrowed them for photo shoots. Anyway, our quest for bunnies began more than a year ago and Kinsley has not let us forget that she was going to get a bunny after she turned four. That girl doesn't forget anything, ever. We put a lot of emphasis on what a big responsibility having a pet is and that she would be the one doing the primary care of her animals. We felt she was ready and we found someone that had the perfect bunnies for us. The day we drove out to pick them up Kinsley could hardly contain her excitement. She just kept squealing "This is my best day!" over and over. We're proud to annouce Juliet and Marley, who both happen to be boys by the way.
Here they are in their temporary and traveling home which was purchased about 10 minutes after we picked up the bunnies. We had to get the cage after the bunnies because Kinsley refused to get a cage until after she had the bunnies, which was perfectly logical in her mind.
Do you see how exhausting being a mommy to bunnies really is? Poor girl was worn out from running around and fretting over those tiny bunnies. But she was ready to jump in and make sure they had a nice big home to live in.
Aside from the obvious need to do some serious painting in the very near future, don't they look like they love their new home? I think they do. We're still trying to decide on a color scheme for their house. Any suggestions?
They didn't stay in their new house long because Kinsley was insistent on taking them to meet everyone over Easter. She was so proud to show everyone how much she had learned about caring for bunnies.
Kait still prefers her bunnies to be of the wooden variety, which is probably best for the safety of the bunnies at this point anyway. Either way we are all happy with the newest additions to our family.
We've had mixed responses about both of our bunnies being male and in the same cage. Some say that since they have always been together and are brothers they will be fine while others are telling us that they will likely start fighting at some point. Do you have any experience with brother bunnies?
