The crazy things that make Speedy who he is!


I was asked by Dropcam to tell a story of one one the crazy fun things Speedy has done but he has done so many that it is impossible to just pick one event so I thought I would just tell the story of the Craziness that is Speedy and with his 2nd gotcha day coming up on the 3rd of Feb it is a good time to tell his tale:
When we first found him he was in a hutch with 3 other bunnies all rescued from an auction where they would have gone to reptile breeders, one looked like a normal white spotted bunny and the other was a copper coloured Rex and of course then there was Speedy a little 16 week old Himalayan Rex with his dark chocolate brown ears,nose,toes and tail with a pure brilliant white coat that was the softest velvet like fur I had ever touched as was the copper Rex.Both Rex's were brave and curious about us But Speedy was a little bit braver,you could tell he just wasn't afraid of anything he even start to tooth pur when I held him so after we when back out to the car we discussed him as to him coming home with us well we did bring him home and that was when the Craziness that is Speedy started.
Speedy when we first brought him home

He would sleep and flop in the strangest of ways,how he would find that comfy I have no idea and he has kept this up as from time to time he will do stuff like this.
and this.


And then there is play time when he really shows his true character,to get you attention to play with him he will act all crazy and all you can do laugh!Even when he bites the carpet you still have to laugh,though most times when he does this he will look up at you then at the carpet then back at you before he goes munch,and you still can't be mad because you know he's going to do it but it just looks so cheeky.

 See Speedy always looks so cheeky when playing even when he was young


And then I managed to catch on video why he was called Speedy he really lived up to his name
He then went on his first Holiday or Vacation as you call it across the pond,travelling never phased him and when we got to our accommodation he had the time of his life,he had so much freedom during the day time he just played and explored the whole time only being in his travel den when were asleep or had to go out.










And when Speedy was about a year old he was diagnosed with glaucoma even that never slowed him down or stopped him have fun that was until he got the ulcer on the eye and only then did it slow him down but only a little,so we made the choice to have it removed when it wasn't healing and didn't he bounce back quick from that.


And so he is back to his normal crazy cheeky demanding Self who we wouldn't have any other way!
And he is I am sure looking forward to his Second gotcha day and the big party he will be having and Sharing with his Pal Jensen who has just had his first gotcha day!

  20. Good afternoon my cheeky little boy! So sweet of you and mummy to drop in on our post today. There is beauty in those things, people and animals that are typically not on the "beautiful list" that the world makes, and for that I am so grateful. It makes our living experience so much nicer, doesn't it? You are beautiful in both spirit and bunny flesh, as a cheeky little bunny to a pirate rabbit!

    LOVE TO YOU BOTH!

    1. Salut from Canada :)

      Cats and bunnies actually can get along, you just have to make sure the bunny will grow as big as the kitties (So a medium or giant size breed is good) and introduce the bunny as the boss. (e.g. MOM will believe the bunny over the cat on who started it. :) )

      Speedy looks smaller in photo than he probably is. I'd say he's probably the size of a small cat. Maybe Speedy can enlighten us.

    2. Hi Lorna,Speedy is a tiny bit over 4 kg which is why he is on a diet as he is a little over weight,but he is the biggest bun we have had so far and has quite a long body,he is heavier than most cats so I would say he is a medium side bunny,about the size of a medium side cat.plus bunnies can be quite tough when it comes to cats,My first bun used to chase cats out of the garden,xx Rachel

    3. Seems that Speedy is .. a big one.
      My little blue Aby is just 3,4 kg.

  33. Rachel, I am sorry that it has come to this, but step away from the rabbit and nobody will get hurt. I am such a rotten person. I am coveting your bunny. I am despicable, but he is sooooo cute. What am I going to do with myself? It is a good thing you are such a perfect bunny Mum and friend. It keeps me from acting on desperate impulses. Love you all, AJ
