About a year ago we had the pleasure of matching Becky M. and her daughter Joy with one of our very first Hot Cross Buns. His name is Cooper and he is Licorice the classroom bunny's brother. Very sadly, Joy developed allergies to all fur-bearing animals, and the family made the difficult decision to rehome all of their pets, including Cooper and their two cats. Thankfully they contacted us and asked if we could take Cooper and find him another awesome home where he will be as loved and cherished as he was in their home. We were very happy to be in a position to help.
Cooper is a beautiful solid blue buck. He has been fed Sherwood all his life, so he has the most amazing shiny, glossy coat. He was neutered at six months of age and is fully litter-trained (although it would be wise to anticipate some initial accidents while he settles in). He is playful, outgoing, inquisitive, and sometimes goofy. Always very healthy, he exudes a desire to live life to the fullest. Cooper will come with his cage, litter box, and other supplies, along with food, hay, and digestive tablets.
Although I did not discuss this with Becky and Joy, we are asking for a $200 rehoming fee for him. It is my desire to give all of this money to the M. Family so they can add a pet reptile to their lives, since furry friends are out of the question. (We have a pet ball python, and he is another variety of an affectionate pet.)
If you break down the costs, Cooper and his belongings are a great deal.
A new Hot Cross Bun = $150
Neutering surgery = approx. $300
Cage, water bottle, litter pan = approx. $125
Food, hay, digestive tablets = approx. $45
Total of brand new everything = $600+
Cooper is only 1/3 the price. And did I mention, he is fully litter box trained? :)
We are going to give Cooper a few days to settle in and get over the shock of the changes in his life before officially listing him. If you are interested in him, please send us an email or fill out the New Bunny Questionnaire, if you are new to our site.
