Duffy is going back to his foster home today after his weekend at Kamp Kronenberg. The little guy is still up for adoption, so if you know anyone who might be interested, check out his Petfinder Page. He’s so sweet and friendly and I can’t believe he’s the same rabbit I rescued two months ago. He lets anyone who wants to pet him and is happy to jump onto my lap on the couch for a petting session. I’d also like to mention how fantastic his litter habits are. For a rabbit who was running around outside not too long ago, he sure knows how to use a litter box! I’ll miss my little couch buddy!

“Lola & Duffy”

“Lola”

Both of my visitors love flopping. Duffy does it under the coffee table and Lola does in the middle of the floor. She also has been known to flop on top of a table. That girl doesn’t care where she relaxes. Did someone forget to tell you you’re a prey animal, Lola? Duffy also hangs out up against the fence, which is another popular spot for rabbits. He’s got his eye on the action! Lola is going to be heading home later today so Duffy has to get his viewing in while he still can.

“Duffy”

Yesterday Duffy jumped right into my lap on the couch for petting. It was so sweet! Then he did again for my mom and she got a long petting session with him. He’s a very friendly rabbit, so different from the crazy little guy who was running around in the bushes in Melville when I first rescued him.

Last night Lola jumped up onto my laptop. She likes being on top of the table in her pen more than being under it. She also doesn’t seem to care if there’s already something on it. She seems to spend most of the night sleeping up there. She’s like Snoopy sleeping on top of his dog house. I guess she’s got a good view from up there!

I got to have some sweet pets with Duffy yesterday. He’s much more social than when he first arrived. He’s pretty much up for petting from anyone who walks by his pen, as is Lola but she’s always a friendly girl.

Both buns have great appetites and gobble their food up right away. I’m always glad to see good eaters, especially for buns who have never been to Kamp Kronenberg before like Duffy. Our Butterscotch is having an ongoing stasis issue, so making sure buns are always eating is a priority for me.

“Duffy”

Lola is very excited to be here at Kamp Kronenberg. She spent most of yesterday running around her pen, occasionally crashing into the wall when she didn’t slam on her breaks fast enough. Nothing fazes her though.

We also have another guest, the rabbit I helped to rescue in Melville, Duffy! Duffy was a little timid at first, but he seems much more comfortable this morning. He put his head down for petting right away when I came to change his water this morning. He’s also very happy to see Lola and I’ve left their “window” open so they can see each other all day. It’s going to be a fun weekend with these two!

“Duffy safe in his foster home”

Several weeks ago, I coordinated the rescue of an adorable rabbit who was dumped in a gated community here on Long Island. This was a particularly difficult rescue since the rabbit had lots of open space and many bushes to hide in. He had been spotted with a couple of wild rabbits who likely showed him the ropes of the neighborhood and the good places to eat and hide. It took us two trips and 12 people to finally catch him. I rounded up several volunteers from the Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group, and the finder/fosterer’s children brought some of their friends along to help as well. Once we had him penned in a bush, I put my hand down to pet him. He really put up a fight earlier, but as soon as I started petting him, he snuggled into the ground. I was able to gently pick him up and put him into a carrier.

He is now living with a wonderful foster family who have named him Duffy. Duffy is a very sweet bun who is full of joy, and easy to handle. He was recently neutered and received a good bill of health. Duffy is currently up for adoption and if you are interested in welcoming this sweet little fluff ball into your heart and home, please check out his petfinder page: https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/37963449

A Rescue and a Recognition

“Duffy’s Rescue Party”

We were finally able to rescue that sweet little bun in Melville earlier this week thanks to help of 12 volunteers and locals. It’s a boy! He is with his foster family now and they are calling him Duffy. He seems healthy and is set to be neutered next week. This rescue was quite a story, which I’ll blog about in more detail once Duffy has been to the vet and is ready for adoption. I don’t know who is more relieved that he’s safe now, me or Duffy!

This week I also found that Bel-Rea, one of the largest Vet Tech Schools in the country named the Rabbit Rabble as one of their Top 25 Small Animal blogs of 2017! I am thrilled that students are reading my blog and that my musing about bunnies might help future vet techs working with rabbits. I’m all about educating and spreading rabbit knowledge to help bunnies, (and their human friends) everywhere. Thank you Bel-Rea and my bunnies thank you too!
