Frosty wandered his way into our rescue in December 2008 after being turned loose outside. He was a young, cheerful guy who loved racing around and chewing up cardboard boxes at record speed. Through no fault of his own, Frosty proved to be very unlucky in his adoption efforts, being returned from his “forever” homes several times. He was always in great demand at Easter due to his resemblance to the Cadbury bunny, but we always kept him close to home then. In his three years in rescue he was in several foster homes and even fostered at a vet’s office, all in an effort to find him a good home where he would get lots of exercise time. This process honed Frosty into a very determined little boy – he knew who and what he liked, and was holding out for what worked best for him. If you were in his good graces, you got lots of affection from him, but if not, you got a nip, or his back turned to you.
In the fall of 2011 we were contacted by a family who had been following Frosty on the website for a while and had become quite attached to him and touched by his story. They had two rabbits they were trying to bond, but really wanted to meet Frosty. They made Frosty part of their family in January 2012, and even though all three bunnies are still living separately, they happily coexist and Frosty finally has the happy home he has been waiting three long years for. We couldn’t be happier for him. Here is a picture of Frosty hanging out in his new playroom:
