Thank you JadeIcing and Bo B. Zappa is really turning into a little treasure.
I had decided I really needed to have a baby bunny in the house again when Katie, my foster-bun, was adopted by FuzzyLove. I missed her so much that I didn't what to do--wait for another foster, or adopt some-bun myself.
So, I started looking around on PetFinder. I came across the pictures that Naturestee took of Jazzy's first litter and there was Baby Zappa. I quickly printed out the on-line application for the Sheboygan shelter, filled it out, and drove the forty minutes to the shelter. I made it there with one minute left before the shelter was supposed to close. The girls buzzed me in so I could get to the counter to say, "I need Baby Zappa when he is ready to go. Here is my application. Please don't tell Angela anything about this because I want this adoption to be a surprise."
They were all so nice about my running in last-minute and letting me stay a few extra minutes to see my new baby bunny.
Hewas still so small,that I almost started to have doubts about taking him. His baby-daddies were so pretty and there were a few new Angoras to consider. I visited him every weekend for about a month watching him fill-out and grow, andI realized Ihad made the right decision. My only problem was wondering how Patrick would take to another male in the house.
As long as Patch could be the dominant, I could start my Dutch-train.
The week prior to Zappa's speuter, I received a call from the Sheboygan shelter. I really thought something bad had happened to my new little guy. All they wanted to tell me was that Zappa developed into a she
instead of a he. I was thrilled because there might be a better chance at bonding a trio with Zappa being a girl!
Zappa was spayed on the last Monday of September, and came home that Wednesday.
As Naturestee said, I made sure I left enough time to stop for a visit at her house with Zappa. She was so surprised she actually shed tears of joy about her Baby Zappa going to a home she was familiar with.
Thanks, Naturestee and Mr Stee, for fostering another one of my babies. You did a great job with nursing Zappa through her illness and her diagnosis.Ilook at her baby pictures, and am still in awe that I was able to watch her grow on your thread. She is stunning and a real delight to have in my house. I will wait a few weeks for hormones to calm down before introductions are made with Luna and Patch. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well.
