Jellybean the Wonder Bunny died suddenly yesterday of natural causes. Jellybean was a wonderful companion to me and my hubby, and also to his sweetheart Cadbury Bunny. Jellybean loved to romp in the yard with Cadbury. Here’s pictures we took shortly after they joined our family:

We only recently had adopted Jellybean and Cadbury. Here’s the blog post from when we adopted them last June. As you may know from previous posts, my husband and I love to give loving homes to homeless pets. We are very sad to lose Jellybean so soon.
His girlfriend, Cadbury, is moping around listlessly. They did everything together, always running together, or laying together and washing each other’s face and ears.
Usually, when a pet dies, I don’t have the heart to get another one right away. But, this time, my hubby and I have decided to adopt another companion for Cadbury since she is so lonely. I called the bunny rescue lady this morning, and she’s going to keep her eyes open for another neutered male bunny who needs a new home.
Sadly, many people get bunnies for their little children at Easter, without knowing much about bunnies. Bunnies are strong willed, usually don’t like to be picked up, and will often scratch when picked up. So, there are always bunnies that need new homes as people realize that a bunny was not a correct choice for a little child.
