Well, today, I went to pick up a rabbit and hutch. The rabbit was supposed to be a meat rabbit, and the hutch would have been used for a doe. I really do NOT need two bucks, it's simply inefficient. So, I get up there, and I see that he's cuter than I thought he was going to be, but really, that's not a big deal for me, guess I'm cold hearted. Well, the lady proceeds to tell me, "I really didn't want the rabbit, but the neighbor's had it and the kids were spraying perfume in its eyes, shooting it with squirt guns and everything else. I couldn't let it get tortured day in and day out, so I took it." She then told me how he was in a cat carrier for his life. Wow, I felt bad for the guy, but, I still could have done it, at least now he wasn't being tortured. Well, I bring the furry future dinner home in a large box (which the blanket didn't fit into, poor guy!) to keep him calm. I get home and tell JD that I need his help with a future dinner. He asks what I shot, nothing... What'd you run over? Nothing... I got a rabbit. He laughs and says it'll be done tomorrow morning. I then pull the hutch from the truck with his assistance, put it beside the house. The hutch is full of poop, I mean 1/4 full of poop and cedar chips. It's pungent to say the least, despite the strong smell of cedar. I pull the rabbit out in the playroom, where the other buck is, so that I can check him out. He seems rather small, but extremely friendly. I was warned that he "lunges" when you try to feed him. I check him out a bit and put him into the hutch outside, fix the dish to the side, and he's pushing me all over the place. I finally put pellets in his dish and he flies into it. He's acting like a starved rabbit, and he's rather skinny for a buck of his age, especially being an outdoor rabbit... So, I brought him back in and yelled for JD's kids to get down to the playroom, they have a new pet rabbit, lol. I couldn't get over how calm and relaxed this guy is after everything he's been through. I figure he's worth the extra bit of feed and hay. I just don't think I could slaughter him after everything he's been through and with being as calm as he is after all of it! This guy can actually be picked up, unlike the other buck. Once I get some weight onto him, he may be my main. breeder buck in the end, depending on how he fills out. Either way, he'll now have a happy life with a full tummy, good treats, lots of GOOD, GENTLE attention and lots of bunny sexins.
