Chick-a-Boom Rabbit Dutch Cream Ridge, NJ
- Blue / Gray , White
- Coat length
- Spayed / neutered, special needs. Chick came from a slaughterhouse where she was terribly mistreated. Picked up by the ears or legs and thrown around. She still has "memories" of those days, and needs someone that understands that. At times she can act "defensive" and acts like she is going to "box" you, but never really does. In reality, she loves attention an loves to be petted but does not like to be picked up.
- Prefers a home without
If I pause as I walk by, she (literally) runs over, circles my feet, asking to be petted. I kneel down, talk to her, pet her, and generally fuss over her. Tell her how pretty she is, how funny she is to watch and how glad I am that I saved her from the slaughterhouse.
I believe animals like to “hear their stories”. No, I’m not a whacko, I just think they understand the vibes you are sending and the tone of your voice speaks volumes. Somehow, I think they understand what you are telling them.
The other morning (this is true), as I was taking care of all the other bunnies, the normal conversation Chick-a-Boom and I usually have took a somber, different tone. It started out as it has many times in the past: “I took you from a slaughterhouse....” Then, this is when it suddenly turned a different route, as I continued: “A slaughterhouse is where people dump animals to be killed.” (For some reason, that particular thing I said to her, brought tears to my eyes…)
I went on talking to her: “Your breeder didn’t want you because you were not show quality, so she sent you there to be killed. She didn’t think you deserved to live.” I went on petting her, and she just sat there as she always does, listening to what I was saying.
Again, I go on talking to her: “There are about 7 billion people in the world, and only ONE cares about you….” (More tears from me..) My voice trailed off. But, when I said that, she melted in a puddle of contentedness...and tooth purred, as if to say: “One is enough. Every bunny just needs just one.”
If you wanted to adopt her, I would bring her to you so you could meet her. If you liked her, then I would leave her with all her "belongings" (ex-pen, litter box, bowls, toys, etc.) so she feels at home. She would need time before you asked too much of her, but once she trusts you she is quite delightful. She binkies and loves attention.
$75 adoption fee includes Chick (spayed) and all her "stuff". Homes within driving distance of Central Jersey.
