I remember Alice well. Alice was a tiny little bunny, just a white puff ball of a bun. For such a compact rabbit, Alice had a bunitude that couldnt be matched! There was a lot of spunk and energy packed into that little bun.
Alice was always a little protective of his pen at the shelter, which made cleaning time quite the experience. I soon learned to let Alice have his way and let him out for a run during pen cleaning time. And each and everytime he would make a beeline for my roll of paper towels and tackle them like his life depended on it! It was a sight to see! I’d giggle like a 4 year old without fail.
Being that both Alice and I enjoyed his mangling of the paper towels, I made a habit of leaving it on the floor for him to attack whenever I opened his pen. I think he appreciated the opportunity to create havoc and a mess of shredded paper.
You might wonder why a little boy bun would be named Alice. It probably confused him as well. The honest truth of it is that we didn’t know he was a boy bun at first. It took a while to discover that but once the truth was known, Alice was renamed to Theodore.
Alice was once the bunny of Sam Solomon’s, a wonderful man and friend of the Georgia House Rabbit Society. Alice was bonded to Sam’s other bunny, Bunya but after an illness, their bond broke. Sam and the Rabbit Center worked together to find Alice another home, which we did. A very nice family adopted him and soon he found himself surrounded by brothers and sisters, 6 other rabbits, 3 cats and a Great Dane to be exact! It was his new family that figured out that Alice was actually a boy bunny and he was soon renamed, Theodore.
Sadly, there was an accident involving his new home which caused the need for an evacuation of all the animals. Alice/Theodore did not survive.
Everyone at the Georgia House Rabbit Society sends their condolences to Theodore’s family, who we know are all missing him. Our condolences also go out to Sam, who we know cared greatly for this spunky little boy.
