While she loves me, she has little need for anyone else in my home or that has come to meet her over her 3 years here. Over the years, she’s had a few names here, but lately, I’ve been singing a song to her from the 70’s called Chick-a-Boom. So, that became her name.
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 whack-o, I just think they understand the vibes you are sending and the tone of your voice speaks volumes, and just 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 when you were just a baby.” 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.”
Chick has been here so long that she has become a sanctuary bunny. I really do not think she would adjust to a new home. But she is available for sponsorship.
$25 per month gets you monthly updates and pics. Sponsorship $$ sent to Chick go for special toys or treats that are just for her!
