Our pets during COVID-19

She is also a miracle dog.
Nearing the end of 2020, I received notice from my friend that the pet rabbit pair he had owned had given birth and there was a sizable litter that his family was willing to give out. Sadly 2 gray rabbits were left behind as the rest of their rabbit siblings were taken away as the original adoptive family had a change of heart and was no longer adopting the 2 bunnies.
I decided that since I am in the situation to take care of 2 bunnies/rabbits I would adopt them and take care of them for the foreseeable future. One bumpy car ride later and the bunnies finally started to settle down in their new home. Because they were so tiny, it was very hard to tell them apart at first but after a while and learning their respective personalities and quirks, I was finally able to tell them apart as my sister named them Twy-Twy and Chu-Chu.
To say taking care of 2 bunnies was a learning experience was an understatement. Before hand we had learned and thought that 1) rabbits were safe outdoors and 2) that you could fit them in the biggest cage I could buy which was wrong. After some adjustment, purchasing and returning old equipment, I finally set up a play pen in my house where I knew the bunnies would have space to roam and also adjusted their diet for mainly hay consumption. Most importantly, I want them to feel safe. Certainly my life now is different with 2 bunnies to take care of but I enjoy the experience. I have learned a lot about the rabbits and myself throughout the past year and hope to continue taking good care of them for as long as I am able to.
