One of our faithful friends asked about Half-Stache yesterday. She had noticed that he wasn't on the Available Bunnies page and I hadn't made an announcement that he had gone to a new home, so she was concerned about him. I wanted to let everyone know that he is just fine. He is still here and is his normal, playful self.
Following his nip on the nose from Winston, I thought his nose would heal over and that the little bit of nose that was nipped away would fall off. That didn't happen. He still has a piece of nose hanging on by a flap and I am planning to take him to the vet for a consultation. He just looks a little peculiar right now, although he seems to be in fine fettle, otherwise.
Since no one has ever inquired about him, we are really struggling over what to do with him. We all adore him, with his spunky attitude and charming ways. I have considered holding on to him as a breeding buck, because his tiny size is wonderful, but we are working to develop nice wide heads with chubby cheeks and he just doesn't have those strengths. I have considered having him neutered and keeping him as a rabbitry mascot, but would really prefer him to have a home of his own, where his busy-bunny ways would be appreciated and loved. Half-Stache is the first of our Buns to have remained with us for so long and I am at a loss. Unless he suddenly attracts the attention of a wonderful family within the next few weeks, he will be a permanent resident of Hot Cross Buns.
