Happy at Home

As promised, a post about the opposite end of the rescue spectrum: happy updates!

Moppet and Snowshoe were just adopted a few weeks ago, but we already got a lovely update:

When my mom had to go in to renew my dog's license, she mentioned we had just lost a Lionhead bun. The girl told my mom that they had a beautiful Lionhead at the downtown location. She showed their pictures to my mom, and it was love at first sight. When my mom came home, she said, "You need to see these bunnies!" When she showed me them, my heart melted. Something just clicked. I said, "We have to go get them!"
We ventured to the depths of downtown Toronto to rescue my future fur babies. The girl at the shelter said that the buns could be separated, but in my mind, they didn't need to undergo any more trauma! Being abandoned was enough. In the bottom cage, nearest to the back wall, I saw them. I sat down with them and started bonding instantly. Unfortunately I couldn't take them home that night because I had to disinfect my home because Fu had had snuffles. 
On January 7th, I finally brought them home. They adjusted so quickly to their new home, I was very surprised. After a week, I can't imagine life without them. I'm so happy they are together. There's nothing sweeter than watching them kiss and groom each other, they are never apart. Snowshoe, as expected, doesn't like to be handled much. He does like to sit on my lap and be pet though. Snowshoe pretends to be a big bad brute, but he's really a gentle bunny. Moppet is an absolute sweetheart. She loves to be brushed and cuddled, and is always happy to receive new toys and cardboard tubes. They both seem to be happy bunnies who binky and flop to let me know they're content. Moppet has also started giving kisses, which is something Fu always did. 
Hopefully they will continue to be happy and comfortable in their new home, where they won't have to experience any more abandonment or trauma. They're awesome fur babies. Fu would be happy that with his loss, I saved two bunnies. Cheesy, I know, but it's the truth!

So sweet. These two were a really lovely pair, I'm glad they got an experienced, loving home that can see through Snowshoe's grumpy ways.
This absolutely hilarious photo was sent by Marbles' new owner. I love it so much! She also sent a nice email:

Marbles is adapting well to his new home and he always runs over to see me, and even allows me to pet him when he's in the mood. When he's running around the apartment, he likes to check in with me every so often before going back to acting hilarious - jumping, running, twisting in the air, exploring - sometimes he even gets going so fast that he can't quite stop in time before hitting the wall. Marbles is a little interior designer whose favourite activity is determinedly and systematically rearranging everything in his cage. He never seems to be satisfied with its fung shui. He is a very fun bunny with a healthy appetite and I am glad he is my pet.
And finally we have this adorable Christmas photo! I just looked it up, I never posted about Frosty the rabbit. He was a gorgeous Jersey Wooley rabbit, a long-haired poofy breed, and he was adopted into an absolutely wonderful home last year. Here he is with Rosie the cat, who was also adopted from TAS South.
I'm very glad to say that we had two important adoptions this last week. Jellybean has been rehomed - third time's the charm! Her new home is experienced and were very patient waiting for her to finish treatment for an eye infection. I think this time she's found the right family.
And best of all, Topaz has finally found a home! That poor boy has been through so much in his short life - born in foster care, transferred to Scarborough, adopted, returned for "strange behaviour", back in foster care, back to the shelter. But at last, after 7 months, he's found a great home where he will be free-range and well loved.
