So Brownie is an adorable domestic bunny that was dumped outdoors that my husband and I rescued and turned into the Red Door Animal Shelter. Click here to read the story of how we caught her.
She was up for adoption and her foster parents ended up adopting her. A pretty remarkable thing happened last week where Brownie’s human aunt was searching bunny information online and FOUND THE PAGE I WROTE ABOUT BROWNIE and her rescue. She immediately called her sister, Brownie’s mom and shared the news. The next day Brownie’s mom emailed me and told me who she was and how she had found me. Pretty amazing as I have thought about Brownie almost every day since we captured her. It was great to hear from Brownie’s mom and to get an update and pics.
Here is some of what her mom told me. Brownie is free range and loves to roam around in their space which has been bunnyproofed. Regarding her first binky; it was really big (that girl can stretch!) and she bumped into the wall while doing it. She seems to underestimate her own size. When scared, she hides behind the curtains but they only cover her head, while her feet and butt remain exposed. She’s always trying to hide in spaces much too small for her. As you can see from her pictures, Brownie is tall and her size makes for pretty huge binkies.
Her mom also says Brownie has turned into an extremely attached and engaging companion. She wakes up her parents in the morning by jumping on them. She demands attention, follows them around the house and flops at their feet. She knows when it’s time for food, and likes to rest in her play area. She hangs out with her humans when they watch tv, and tries to steal food off their plates. She’s also naughty and breaks out of her pen when left at the pet sitter’s. She’s become used to the open space within her house and can’t contain her curiosity for the most part. She loves being pet on the black patch right above her nose, and does a whole lot of tooth grinding when pet in general.
Her mom also mentioned that at first Brownie was shy and just not sure if she could trust humans – after all she was dumped outside by someone. She is loving, trusting and engaging now and her parents could not imagine life without her.
Her parents are considering bonding her to another rabbit. I specifically told them about some of the pros and cons of having bonded rabbits. I am sure whatever they do will be fine.
They have shared 2 adorable pics with us and her mom promises to send me updates to post every so often.
Here is Brownie up on the sofa….
