Abandoned bunny

A few years ago, Candi and I went into our friend's pet supply store to get hay. That day, a white bunny happened to have been abandoned there. The owner said how he didn't want her and how she was just left in front of his shop. It was sad to see this little skittish bunny and to imagine someone just leaving her carelessly. Candi asked what the guy was going to do with her, but the owner wasn't sure. Of course, Candi and I had to save her! :D We took her home and added her to our family.

That night, we got a call that the same place we just got our bunny from had caught on fire. We were SO sad for the shop owner, but also felt so happy we took hthis bunny when we did. If we had waited until the next day to decide, it would've been too late. Even though our bunny was white, we named her Smokey after the store catching on fire.

We are still SO glad that we took her that day, and now she is very spoiled and has a boyfriend, Beanie. :P She also has a big double decker hutch and gets to go outside in a play pen once in a while. Also, when we first adopted her, she was so scared and would run eveytime a hand came near her cage. Now, I can hold her for as long as I want and pet her all the time! She sure has come a long way! :)

That is a terrific story, Britty !
We adore rabbits and I'm so happy that Smokey found two wonderful ladies to take care of her !

There are so many abandonned rabbits out there.... so sad.
But that Smokey, what a nice life she has now !

Thank you for telling us her story :))

Smoky is so cute! I've often thought I'd like to have a pet bunny. Maybe sometime you can post a picture of Smoky and Beanie together. I'd love to see it.
