Guess who got a real bunny of his own?

It all started the other day when Mr. K came home from work.  He had seen a sign advertising rabbits for sale and asked me if we should run and get one for K5.  How spur of the moment!  How impulsive!  Of course I said yes.  (We are wild you know.)  Unfortunately they only had white rabbits with pink eyes.  Those kind freak me out.  Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to a pink eyed killer rabbit flying across the room.  Ok, maybe don't imagine that but you see why we couldn't get one right?

I looked at the classifieds on my iphone and found a couple of listings for baby bunnies.  I called the first one and asked him if the bunnies had creepy pink eyes.  Nope, it was gray.  Sold!  We got home with the bunny and K5 was thrilled.  He said he didn't believe it was real at first.  I should have taken a picture of his face when he realized it was.  Since we hadn't planned on buying a bunny, we had no food, cage, litter box, etc. so Turbo spent the night in a Rubbermaid tub.

The next day we went to Petsmart and stocked up on rabbit supplies and built a little "habitat" for her with baby gates and zip ties.
K5 has been feeding her dandelion leaves and taking great care of her.

Just so you can see how much he loves rabbits:  They all have names, FunBun, Carrot Fly, Max, JackPot and Jackolantern.  There are more than 30 stuffed rabbits and we are missing Peter Cotton tail and one of the ebay bunnies that we know of.

The happiest 5 year old I know.
P.S.  The chickens don't like her.

Just call me Starr.
