My Rescue Bunny

Okay, so Rodger the rescued rabbit may be a small, ceramic figurine but I'm proud just the same. He was waiting for me at the cash/wrap when I came into work the other day with a  severed leg. When I had a moment I broke out the super glue and mended his wound. It took a few tries: the pieces were small and delicate and I glued them to my fingers in the process. And then I glued Rodger to the counter, glued my hand to the counter, glued my hand to Rodger and glued my hands together. Sadly, I already knew from past experience that I should avoid super glue at all costs.

Either way my efforts paid off. I purchased Rodger as-is for half price (employee discount does not apply). It may seem silly that I have such a soft spot for an inanimate rabbit, but I guess this is my way for preparing for future rescues of real rabbits. It will take a lot more patience than it will super glue, but I hope that rabbits are always a part of my life. I will one day make up for buying Umbra by saving those less fortunate lagomorphs.

I think that this event lead to a dream where I had three rabbits, including Umbra, and acquired a forth foster, who I hoped would be Umbra's husbun. The match wasn't to be, but at least I have realistic expectations in my subconscious wanderings.

I also had a pet vulture. Don't ask me why. 


  1. I did leave a coment but it seems to have dissappeared oh well but we would mind seeing you handy work on the bunny ornament,xx Rachel

  2. Good werk on Rodger .. you can have a fall-back career as a story writer! But I don't think we want to know why you would have a pet vulture. Sheeesh ...

  3. Hmm, superglue. Yeah, I've glued myself to the carpet and glued carpet fibers to myself in an attempt to restore bunny damage. Heh...

    I don't think you need to "make up" for buying Umbra. The way I see it, bunnies from pet stores or breeders need rescuing too. I bought Moshi from a breeder and I always wondered what his life would have been if it hadn't been me who went for the little blue Dutch. :) Umbra is a very lucky bun!
