Chloe is a ??
Chloe has now passed to the Heavens above. Rest In Paradise my sweet baby!
She was 10 years old when she passed and I had gotten her from the shelter at 4 months old when I heard she was on the hot seat to be euthanized. Apparently, her previous owner's grandchild was bitten by her many times.
I remember just opening her cage door and letting her roam free until her curiosity led her to come see what book I was reading as I laid on the floor. It was love at first sight then.
She grew to be roughly 15 pounds of soft beautiful fur and loved her yogurt treats. She'd do anything for one of the purple yogurt treats. She didn't like carrots, only the greens, but she was a sucker for yogurt treats and apples. Apple and peach twigs she loved to chew on, timothy hay she ate almost a whole bag (I ended up with one of those hanging balls and she broke it to get her hay). She loved toys that hang for chewing.
I had torn up an old pillow case and that was her blankie. She carried that around and would throw it over her body when she wanted a nap. She was leash and litter box trained. Loved people. Loved messing with the giant dog - this dog was scared of a rabbit. She liked being held, but she loved snuggles. Thunderstorms? She's popped her cage door open and come to cuddle.
When I was pregnant with our son, she would cuddle in my lap and lick my belly. She passed when our boy was just about 1. She loved sniffing him and licking him.
I miss my fur baby. But never knew her breed. I was told she was an American English spot mix with Rex.
Now that our boy is older, I'd like to get another bunny. ***** Karen Sez *****
Aww, what a lovely pet and story!
Given a weight of 15 pounds, my best guess at her breed is possibly a Flemish Giant crossed with New Zealand. She sounds like she was a very special rabbit that gave you a lot of joy.
I hope you can find a new bunny that will turn out to be every bit as delightful! Thank you for sharing your story with us.
