I'll join in. We don't have a rabbit, but some of you may remember my thread last month about whether a bunny would be a good fit for us.
I have since started volunteering at the Humane Society, mainly as a bunny volunteer. My younger two kids and I go in twice a week to socialize/exercise the bunnies. I am completely in love with a big, grumpy lop named Merlin. He is definitely a disapproving rabbit
. Today when I went in (the fifth time), he seemed to recognize me, and when I was in the exercise pen with him, he was affectionate and seemed to be happier than he's been before. He was binking around, and hopping in circles around my feet, and he even put his feet up on my legs and stretched his nose up to my face and just looked at me for a long time. He was also chewing my clothes and head-butting my butt. Before this, he's consented to be petted but mainly ignored me. Today he seemed really interested in me.
Ramona, my five year old, is completely in love with a Californian named Manuela. She is a real snuggle-bunny. I held her for an hour last week and she was just as content as could be. She also hopped right out of the exercise pen, which surprised me, because she's pretty little. Ramona just can't get enough of smooching her. Manny is extremely mellow.
And we had a surprise when we went in today! Hobo, the HS's most recent arrival, surprised us all by having three babies! Everyone thought she was a boy! The babies are about the size of my thumb, with the tiniest little ears you've ever seen! They are definitely the wee-est buns ever.
So we are in bunny heaven around here, and even though I don't think a bunny would be a good addition to our family right now, we plan to continue our work at the Humane Society. I do seem to be allergic to bunnies, but mainly if I bury my face in their fur. If I keep them away from my eyes, I do ok.
Btw, when I called the city department here to inquire about having chickens, I was told that chickens are a no-no within the city limits but that we could have rabbits, provided that we had three or fewer, they lived indoors, and they all had names. Those are the criteria they have to meet to be "pets" and not be considered farmed (for food or fur) or bred (no breeding of bunnies for 4-H, etc., within the city limits).
