We had our first rabbit round up at the school in Salinas last night. We were able to catch 4 of the 5 bunnies who have been enjoying the school garden as their personal nightly dinner buffet. Two of the bunnies are adults, and probably the parents of the two juveniles. All of the rabbits are small; around 4 lbs. for the boys, maybe 4 1/2 for Lavender.
We are pleased to introduce to you:
Update 9/20/09: Sage has been bonded with Donna, one of our sanctuary bunnies, and will live out his life here at Friendly Farms.
Update 6/7/09: Sage has been neutered and is ready to go home with a loving family. He would especially enjoy living with a compatible bunny girlfriend. Contact us here at Friendly Farms if you would like to meet Sage.
Sage is an adult male who is self-assured around humans. He may have been someone’s pet bunny at one time. He is very intelligent and quick, making him a difficult bunny to catch, which is surely how he managed to stay alive living on his own. Sage is likely to be the father of Thyme and Basil.
LAVENDER and THYME
Update 5/25/09: Lavender and Thyme have had their spay and neuter surgeries now, and are healing quickly. They are doing well with their litter box training, and are ready to move into a loving home! Contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in adopting this charming pair.
Lavender is the lovely agouti girl on the left. She may be the mother of Thyme and Basil. She is not used to living with humans and is slowly learning to trust that hands can mean gentle strokes and good food.
Thyme is a young male, about 4 months old. He is also unused to human attention, and stays close to Lavender when people are around. He will need a quiet, safe home to become trusting.
Update 9/20/09: Basil has been bonded with Dailey, one of our sanctuary bunnies, and is now a permanent resident of Friendly Farms.
Update 6/7/09: Basil has also been neutered now, and looking forward to moving into a forever home. He and the rest the Garden Gang are now used to living the house rabbit life, and enjoy taking ear rubs and getting their parsley and dandelion greens from human hands.
Basil is also a shy little boy, and most likely Thyme’s brother. He is spending a lot of time trying to make himself invisible right now, but he is quick to come out when fresh veggies are left in his cage. An apple or banana slice everyday will do a lot towards earning his trust!
Contact us here at Friendly Farms if you would like to adopt one or more of these wonderful rabbits. Donations towards their spay or neuters and other medical needs can be made to the Friendly Farms Medical Fund at the Avian and Exotic Clinic of the Monterey Peninsula.
A big thank you to Jessica, Farrah, Suzanne, and all of the other helpers we had at the round up! We appreciate your commitment to helping these bunnies move on to safe, loving homes.
