Adventures of the bunny mom

Meet Fezzik!


Y’know that whole list of things I wanted to do in 2017?  Remember how I wanted to challenge myself to do more things that scared me?

Yeah.

I’m a mom now… to a gorgeous little boy bunny. He’s named Fezzik after the giant in my all time favorite book The Princess Bride (I have no less than three copies). He’s a dwarf bunny, so despite his namesake, he won’t get much bigger than he is now. Mostly I call him “bun bun” though. I need to break myself of that habit.

Isn’t he the cutest? He was a total surprise (as babies often are) but Nick’s apparently been planning it for a while and pretty much everyone knew but me. He even had people ready to go pick up his cage/hay/etc in case he needed a hand surprising me. In the end, he couldn’t keep a secret and he ended up telling me the night before we had to pick him up.

He’s got such a personality and, I don’t want to be one of those people but ohmygodhaveyoueverseenanythingsocute?

Needless to say, I’m having a bit of anxiety over the whole thing at the moment. There are days where I have to remind myself to eat and shower and such. How in the world am I going to take care of a bunny? What if he doesn’t like me? What if something happens to him? Is litter training a rabbit difficult? How much can this little guy actually poop? (Spoiler alert, a LOT!)

One step at a time. Deep breaths.

One thought on “Meet Fezzik!

  1. Oh – so delighted to see the new addition to your family, Steph, and how sweet and lovely he is. Our cat adopted us 14 years ago (he’s the ripe old age of 20 now) and is such a key member of our family. Good luck with the early training…
