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?
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.
