After we had Junie spayed and tried to bond her with Nibbles, it became apparent very quickly that Nibbles was not interested in having her as a buddy. Junie would groom and snuggle, but all she got from NIbbles was…well, nibbles and nips! After several months of trying to bond the two of them, we resigned ourselves to believing they could never work as a bunny pair. Nibbles seemed totally fine on his own, but Junie would stick her nose through bars of her cage trying to get to Nibbles. She would scamper over to get as close to him as she could. It was obvious she wanted a friend.
We got in contact with a fabulous bunny rescue, Friends of Rabbits. We looked at an online album of adoptable bunnies and saw an adorable black and white spotted bun. We arranged for him and Junie to meet and they got on famously! We also learned that this sweet bunny had been in a county shelter on death row (literally) when Friends of Rabbits swooped in and saved him.
Junie and “new bunny” (as we called Crispin before he was Crispin) went to the bunny bonder’s house and were bonded over just a few days. When they came home, it was so amazing to see her and “new bunny” running around together, grooming each other, and just being happy bunnies! Here are some of the first pictures of the two of them together at home:
