Nannerbelle - 2003 - 2014
Nanner joined our family in 2005 and quickly became a bond mate with our laid back Beulah. In her younger days she was forced to fight for her position and food but she soon learned it was not necessary in her new home.
I quickly learned what the word “snarf” meant and its definition in our house was Nanner’s eating behavior. In addition to enjoying the diverse food and treats she soon became our little diva.
Whatever Nanner wants …Nanner gets!
If she was upset with you it was, “Talk to the butt!” and heaven forbid if you changed her routine or habitat. Once, another very athletic, Buster bunny jumped out of his corral and visited her in “her territory” and she stood her ground in the middle of the floor and let us know, in no uncertain terms, that he was not to be allowed in her tent and she wanted him out immediately!
She was a very curious bunny and we discovered our bunny proofing was inadequate when she was stuck behind the glass doors of the entertainment center. Beulah could see her and he was very upset until we got her out.
Although she shared top bunny status with Beulah we would have to guard poor Beulah to make sure he (yes he – we obviously did not know his sex when we named him) would have an opportunity to slowly lick and savor his banana.
After Beulah died she became more receptive to human companionship and soon became the sweetest bunny who loved pets and being doted on. She also loved her Nannertime resting on my shoulder and enjoying the gentle pets.
Nanner had a great zest for life and seized the day with vitality. She was rarely sick but we always knew immediately there were problems if she didn’t come running for her banana.
You will be in our thoughts forever Nanner and we were fortunate to be a part of your life.
