Meet Annabelle...or maybe Ollie!







Annabelle came to live with us today. She is so tiny!Or I should say HE. Once again , gender confusion on past owners- we flipped him over and he was definitely a male. He is about half the size of Baxter! I think we may rename him Ollie.

He seems to have settled in nicely- eager about hay and pellets,running and doing little leaps. Twizzle hasn't met him yet and we will probably keep him apart from him for now. Twizzle has bullying habits at times , and the little guy would be no match for him.

Baxter is just fascinated with this bunny boy. They have been nose to nose a few times and she is sitting outside his cage staring at him while he eats pellets. She doesn't act this way around Twizzle , so I think she is one smitten kitten..uh...bunny. Although as I typed this Baxter GROWLED at him!!










But He is a welcome addition to our home.

The woman who gave him to us brought her small daughters along to say goodbye to her...and as she said goodbye to the bunny and saw he was in good hands with us, the youngest child turned to her Mother and said, "Can we get a Fish now?"

And so a new chapter begins for the Pratt Bunnies...
