Unlike the time I had bunnies flown in last summer, this United flight arrived promptly, and the bunnies were waiting for pickup in the cargo area. After a few chuckles from the airport employees about having shipped rabbits (doesn't everyone fly rodents across the US?), we headed out and took a quick peak at the bunnies before heading home. (OK, so maybe I stopped at TJ Maxx AND Olive Garden for a quick never-ending pasta bowl, but then it was straight home). By now, the normally dismal Ohio weather had turned into a total sleet blizzard, so the trek home was more than just depressingly dark at 5:30pm.
We arrived home, and I got my first real glimpse at each of the bunnies. Emmy's rich blue coat immediately caught my eye along with Kaylee's massive orange presence - what a doe! Timmy looked like a shy teddy bear with an enormously cute head, and while I really wanted to cuddle him, I didn't want to add additional stress to the poor fellow, so all three went into their brand new cages alongside Anna, Ruby, and Envy.
I quietly observed each bunny. Kaylee seemed the most timid and just pretended to be a meatloaf in the corner of her cage for a while before finding her crock of reverse osmosis water and slurping it down like bunny Kool-Aid. Emmy attacked her toilet paper tube of 3rd cutting hay like it was bunny crack - that girl can eat! Timmy pretended that he didn't notice me, but I couldn't resist petting him just a little, and he didn't seem to mind. Then he proceeded to test his hay and check out the hot does who surrounded him (what a lucky guy...but there's no getting lucky tonight, Timmy).

Hook's Hollands is a small hobby rabbitry on our Ohio farm and is operated by me (Diane) with the help of my family. All of my bunnies are pampered pets whom I adore.
This blog serves to spotlight various bunny care topics and share a bit about my 365-days-a-year-with-no-vacations experiences raising bunnies.
