Scooter here. The new bunny, who remains nameless at the moment, is adapting well to coming home. We've set up one of the X-pens on a tarp in the dining room, on the opposite side of the room from the bunny condo complex. She is very friendly, came up to greet us when we got up, and happily ate her piece of the bunnies' breakfast banana.

It appears that bonding her to Keelie may be difficult at best. Keelie lunged and pawed at her through the X-pen bars yesterday, and repeatedly peed on the tarp in front of the X-pen to show the new bunny who is boss. This is unfortunately Keelie's typical response to other bunnies. After a bit, the new bunny pawed back through the bars at Keelie.

Carbun sniffed at the new bunny through the X-pen bars, but neither seems to mind the other's presence. We do not yet know how Aeryn and Tegan are viewing the newcomer, but we may well wind up having to try to bond her with these two instead. The dog tried to play with the new bunny, which was a bit too much. The cats strongly disapprove as expected, but aren't doing anything other than stare. Since the new bunny seems to be asserting herself and is physically larger than Keelie and one of the cats, we predict that she will quickly keep the cats in line.

We have several pages of potential names, most of which have been rejected.
Pet Parents to: Aeryn, Tegan, Keelie, and Kiera (bunnies); Harley, Sierra, Ringo and Owen (cats); Dakota (dog). We miss our Rainbow Bunnies: Keiran, Kylie, Reno, Carbun, Kaylee and our boy Bailey.

She's pretty - reminds me of my Maxine that passed - she was a big beautiful REW and she was very easy going too. The name will come to you.

Oh, Congratulations!
It sounds like she is fitting right in, kind of in the middle.

We have named the new rabbit Kaylee, which is a variant of a Gaelic word meaning "slender".  Which she somehow is, despite being a giant glutton.  We think she's channeling Bailey, because she's eating everything in sight, including our own watermelon plate from last night (see picture below).  Kaylee is also a fitting name because that's the name of a character, played by Jewel Staite, from the cult sci-fi series Firefly.  We already have Aeryn, who's also named after another such character, this time from Farscape.

 

Kaylee appears to have no fear of anything, including the dog.  She also doesn't recognize boundaries and has pretty much explored the entire main floor of the house, including the back window ledge.  The other bunnies seldom leave the dining room/living room area where they're allowed, aside from Aeryn's forays into the kitchen to eat the dog's food.

 

The other bunnies are not too thrilled with her.  With the exception of Carbun, they've all pawed at her through her cage bars, and she's done the same with them.  Bonding Kaylee to either or both pairs will take time.

 

Some pics!

oooo, she's pretty! What's the mark inside her right ear? a tattoo?

She isn't afraid of dogs because she either thinks she is one, or (more likely) knows she is a superior species and dogs are only pets.

It's early yet. I'm sure she will be able to bond with one of the gang with a little patience and polite introductions.

Yes that's a tattoo. The shelter tattoos all the animals when they're speutered since they have them under anyway.
