Monday Bunday

"Somebun strange is in the house and it is not a Spot"

Sometimes her family would disappear, she knew not where, she never saw or smelled them again. She got out, it felt good to not have her feet on wire, she hid, she looked for food and ate a bit of a bush, some fallen leaves. There was no water. No one looked for her except the neighborhood cats.

"Knock, knock is anybunny there?"

Someone offered her something fresh and tender and green, she came and ate and was caught, held close, but gently. Food and water came, she was put inside a little fence. She didn't try to get out, not here, too tired and somehow not worried.


She said her name was Amelia and somehow, she wasn't sure how, she was always called this name. Safe and sound for a few days. She had to go, to a scarier place. She was promised things would get better after that was over.


Waking up drowsy, her belly hurt, but she remembered the promise. Sooner rather than later her carrier was moved and jiggled in a loud warm place. She felt better being on the move and bunched up her towel to celebrate and cleaned her face, just in case.

Not for the stew pot.

The next day she felt good and then great. She binked and ran, ate stretched, napped and asked to petted and got that. What would be next for the little rabbit who would not be eaten?

Is this a new addition to the family? Amelia looks like a California bun. My first bunny was a California I found abandoned at a park.

Hi, Amelia! You're in good hands!

bunnygirl said...

Oh, yay! She escaped from the bunny-eaters and knew right where to go!

Nature has its own process to settle down subjects.

Welcome, Amelia!!! She's a pretty one!! How are the Spots taking to her??

Thanks everyone for visiting and reading Amelia's story. It remains to be seen if she can get along with the Spots. The first day Sydney bit her lip through the pen, that was before she had been spayed, so maybe after hormones are settled Sydney will feel less threatened by the younger girl bun. She and the Spots have been talking under the door that separates. At the most she will stay at the least she will be adopted into a home that will love her. Pretty good choices!

d. moll, l.ac. said...

PS yes, Ilex you may nom her ears, they are renewable chocolate.

Alice said...

D if you know they are talking under the door that separates why aren't you telling us what they they are saying?! this is all very juicy, need to know gossip!

do you have the bunny cams installed yet?

i just love how alarmed the spots look in that first photo, boy it doesn't take much to throw off a bunny does it? i also like the book in the background, it's just the beginning of the deception isn't it? oh the webs we weave....

d. moll, l.ac. said...

Much of the bun speak is lost in translation, I will try to transcribe at a future date. No bun cams yet, but one of my brothers is very adept and this sort of thing, he has installed several gopher cams, and not because he likes gophers. Book in background is "random" placement, it has been there for a couple years, just waiting for a photo op. Deception, indeed, who is really in charge?

The Bunns said...

Who do you THINK is in charge???

Heeee Heeee ........

Sue said...

Lucky, lucky bunny! She's adorable. :-)

Elizabeth said...

What a sweetie!
Don't let her even guess what has happened to some of her DISTANT relatives..........

Amelia is a lovely name

Christina said...

This gorgeous bun knew exactly where to go. I can just imagine what it must be like for her now compared to what she had before! Yaaaaaaaaaaaay for Amelia

Junkstylediva said...

I was thinking about this run away bunny lately and was going to ask you for an update. So glad to hear she is living with you! What a lucky bunny she is! Inge

FrecklesandDeb said...

Welcome, Amelia! We hope she is able to stay. We hope the Spots accept her.

Looking forward to the rest of this story!
