Roger Rabbit

Meet Roger Rabbit. He's darn lucky to be here. Remember the last hot spell we had? Well, this poor guy was out back in a cage in at a local feed store basically left to die. As they were trying to sell beautiful tan and grey lops, this guy sat at the back, in a dirty cage, not even under the shade. Who wants an overheated, urine-soaked rabbit? No second thoughts, I "bargained" for his life at a measly $5, hauled buns (pun intended) out of there to get him cooled down, and called animal control; the store got a visit from them, and many of their animals are now gone (yeah!).

He's been with us for a couple of weeks now, gradually starting to trust us, really enjoying fresh produce and fresh hay. He's learning about playing, he loves the dogs and the cats, and as he's shedding out his coat, he's becoming a beautiful grey chinchilla color. He's a real sweetheart, and I'm happy he got a second chance at life!
