So I just got my very first bunnies 3 weeks ago! I have owned and fostered guinea pigs for a few years and now that I have the extra space had been thinking about getting a bunny. I was doing some research when I heard about the Bunny Magic rescue in Maryland that got shut down for hoarding. Over a hundred bunnies were taken into custody at the animal shelter and kept in their barn. I went to the shelter and fell in love with a male and female pair, and they became the first two adopted out
The girl, Quinn, is the explorer and loves to eat! The boy, Tate, loves to play with all his toys and is completely devoted to Quinn. They snuggle and groom each other, it is the cutest thing.
And of course, pictures! Any idea what breed they may be? They are each a little under 6 lbs.
Ah, yes, sorry should have included that they are both spayed and neutered. I was told they were when I adopted them, and I also took them into work for an exam (I'm a vet assistant) and had it confirmed as well.
Also I didn't say which one was which, in the pictures. Tate is the one with the black around his eyes and Quinn is the one with 1 ear down and 1 up
Welcome, fellow GLer!
I'm in the process of moving their cage into the living room where I am most of the time. Quinn is not happy with me!
Working in the veterinary field I hear some of the same names over and over again, so I try to come up with something different for my pets. (For example my cat is Giuseppe and my guinea pigs are Nancy, Cosette, and Karen) So for the bunnies I went through tons of names. I had about 20 picked out that I liked but none of them really fit. I always thought the name Matilda was cute, so I googled that and found a clothing company called Matilda and Quinn. I liked Quinn (I liked it ever since watching the show Daria with her sister Quinn) so I looked up other Q names and for a day or 2 Tate was Quigley. But Quigley and Quinn were too close and I kept calling them both Quinnley lol. So I started thinking of shows I liked and named Tate from American Horror Story.
Quinn is very demanding! The minute I walk in the house I'm expected to open their pen. She runs up and hits the door to the pen and won't stop, lol. She loves to eat and knocks poor Tate out of the way when I bring veggies. He just sits and patiently waits until she is done. She likes to run around the whole apartment and he likes to stay in or near the pen.
