Still no sign of Shaun. The mechanic's been too busy to play with him. Grrr.
Denise fell madly in love with Clover and asked if she could have her. I wanted to say no, but Blackberry has been considerably less affectionate. I thought they were going to bond well but the tiny killer rabbit kept biting Clover's butt through the cage. Clearly it was going to be a long ordeal towards uncaged friendship with no guarantees of success.
Denise is perfect for her - sweet, maternal, playful, and generally wonderful. We brought her over last night, and WOW is that one happy bunny! Somehow she just knew she was Home. She instantly stretched out, feet sprawled and tail relaxed (bunny-speak for "I'm secure and content"). All evening long she was binkying, flopping, and generally amusing us with her joyful antics.
Lost: $200 (her previous owner kindly shared the vet bill with me), a skein of silk yarn, and lots of work.
Gained: The incredible experience of knowing we saved a life, and turned a lonely neglected bunny into a supremely gleeful one.
What an awesome deal! If only people were so easy to rescue, huh?
