Emelyn spent all last summer dreaming about having her own bunny after spending time at a friend's house who had bunnies. So finally, in September we ordered a hutch and bought two baby bunnies. They were siblings, but we didn't know if they were male or female. Eme named them Racy (because he was a fast runner) and Cuddles (I think you can figure out where this name came from!). Well, this spring, Cuddles hasn't been so cuddly - he's actually been very mean. We discovered they were both males, and had to separate them. Then Cuddles started being aggressive towards us - biting and attacking. We decided it wasn't a good idea to have him around the kids and had to take him to the SPCA (with tears).
In the meantime, Racy has become such a sweet bunny. He seems very happy and content. Last weekend we moved his hutch underneath a tree and added a fence so he can run "free." He really seems to like it. Here are some pictures of what we have done and of Eme and Racy.
