Starbucks

Rescue date: Apr 11, 2015 Favourite Food: Craisins Best friend: “anyone who has craisins”

A group of bunnies is called a Fluffle,
And they have caused quite a kerfuffle

Rabbitat Rescue is always looking for barns that can house a Rabbitat.  Rabbitats are mini-sanctuaries designed to be escape proof, visually appealing, gently interactive, sustainable and low maintenance.  The barn at our farm seemed like the perfect place for an indoor space, but the outdoor space was more of a challenge with a lot of cleanup needed in the forest to build a covered shelter.  It is easier to start with a colony of rabbits rather than introducing new bunnies along the way.  So on a rainy day in April, we welcomed 8 beautiful rabbits to our farm sanctuary: Vanilla Bean, Misto, Java, Cuba, Starbucks, Mocha, Macchiato, and Jamaica.  Never having rabbits before, we relied on our bunny volunteer Jane to teach us how to care for these fluff balls.  They may be fluffy and cute, but they were not pets having come from a meat breeder.

As soon as you visit the bunnies, you will immediately recognize Starbucks – she is the largest of the large bunnies.  However, her size hides the fact that she is the most timid of them all.  Last year Starbucks was ill, and she let us easily handle her.  This was a sad time, thinking that she was critically ill, but we so enjoyed being able to cuddle with her.  We nursed her through her illness, and she quickly returned to her old shy self.
