So let me introduce the rest of the rabbit that belongs to that ear, drum roll please......
Say Welcome to SHERMAN!
Sherman was dropped off at the store that he was sold in. All we know is he is around a year old. The store couldn't resale him for the reason we don't know. Sometimes older pets don't get any interest from people looking to add a pet to their lives.
They didn't know what to do with Sherman so they contacted a person who knew ma. Apparently, she came highly recommended. BOL! Sherman needed a place to go and needed it quickly.
The person brought Sherman to ma on Saturday. Funny how she doesn't even need to leave the house to rescue pets. Sherman doesn't know what to think of our house yet.
Ma did put him in a much larger cage and gave him Cinnamon's old house for a place to feel secure. Poor Sherman was in a cage that didn't have a house. We think all pets should have a place to get away and relax.
Right now Sherman is getting used to use. Scooby and I hasn't even paid attention to him yet but Molly Mew and Davy have sniffed him and sat by his cage. After ma told Molly Mew "no chasing", Molly Mew lost interest. Davy on the other hand likes to keep him company. He likes to sleep on the blanket that lays on top of his cage and he has shared a snack of timothy hay with him.
Davy also has had to touch him. It was a closed paw touch. Davy has to touch everything! We haven't had social time yet. Sherman has to get used to us first. He doesn't know what ma or the kid are doing when they point their phones at him.
Ma said she doesn't know if we will keep Sherman yet. On one hand, she doesn't feel ready to have another small animal like a rabbit or guinea pig considering we just lost Cookie and Cinnamon unexpectedly. On the other hand she hasn't had a rabbit in a very long time and has much studying to do on rabbit care.
She also doesn't like the name Sherman. Dad said it should be Woody since he has the most beautiful woodgrain look to his fur. Oh and let me tell you, he is the softest rabbit I have ever seen. Ma says he feels like velvet. Eli says he is softer than beagle ears and you all know beagle ears are soooo soft!
I guess we will have to wait and see if Sherman stays or not. While he is here he will be treated like he is ours. He will get food, clean water, treats, socialized and a lot of petting. Wonder if he likes to wear hats and jackets??
We will try to take some better photos of him a little later. He has only been here for a full day and we don't want to overwhelm him. I did already hear him THUMP after ma had put him back in his cage and walked away. We don't know if that was a thump for leave me alone or I wanted to be petted some more. I need to touch up on my rabbit language. All I know is I am not allowed to chase him.
Do you have any rabbit advice to give us?
What would you name him??
