As Sweet As Honey (Yet Another Family Member!)

I am still going through a rough patch with M.E. at the moment and have been unable to do anything constructive at all for the last few weeks. It's hard to shake anxieties and easy to slip into depression when I am like this, so I have to take it easy and not overdo it.

However, some good things have happened during this time, which have helped me to remain relatively optimistic. For instance, my wife and I have adopted a third rabbit! She is a female lop, named Honey and we took her in when a neighbour admitted that they were not looking after her properly.

Initially, we had intended to simply "foster" her for a short while as we tried to find her a new home, but she has become so attached to us since her "rescue", that it would be too difficult for us to part with her now. Within a day of her coming to stay with us, she became a "new" rabbit, jumping into the air and running circles around us with pure joy. Find more photos of Honey here.

I have told my wife, however, that this really must be the last one we have, as we now have three rabbits, and we had not intended to have any more after we lost Anakin earlier this year. At the moment, Honey appears to have a sneezing issue. It does not appear to be anything serious (she has seen the vet), and she is full of life and eats well. However, to be on the safe side, she stays in our third bedroom away from Bunny and Daisy for the time being, and may well stay that way as bonding three rabbits can be difficult.

As far as any modding, that is having to take a bit of a back seat for the time being as I try to recuperate some energies.

Thanks Amraphael,

I added a link to some more photos of her. :)

I guess I could try some playing rather than building for a little while ... between sleeps.

Hi Lance,

Be careful when mixing male and female rabbits and you might have more than three to care for...

LOL :)

Yes. We have already had "Bunny" (our male rabbit) neutered. However, I am not convinced which sex "Honey" is as yet. She appears to be female, but is showing some male traits other than the obvious. ;)

We are probably going to keep her seperate from the other two now anyway.

Lance.
