Okay, Wabbit People, it’ll be YOUR fault

If this messes up.

I have new tenants starting in October.
They are not exactly, totally, on target for what we're looking for.
(UC grad students, postdocs, that kind of thing.)
Yes, he's a student.
But not at UC, rather he's at the local art college.
And his girlfriend is a waitress, thinking about coming back to school.
But they seem really nice.
And they like the apartment, in the way that it should be liked by someone living there.
If they are going to be happy.
And, besides that, they have

Two Rescued Rabbits.

  2. That makes sense.They were sending their psychic emanations ahead of their arrival.Yep.The bunny attendants are planning to plant cilantro and chard.For the Buns.And they will have access to apple twigs and blackberry vines.It was so cute.They were all… "And there is green stuff for the bunnies!"And they like the light in the back bedroom for painting.

  4. I will get pics.One bunny was found wandering (dumped Easter Bun?) by her brother… apparently saw him and thought Person = Food.So they seem like a nice lot all around.(Fingers crossed.)

  5. the Bunny People will mention this, but try to find out how long the rabbit attendants have been at their current position. are they familiar with the amount of bunnyproofing that is required of a new abode?also:!yay! for rescued bunnies

  6. I agree with mariser; bunnies are cute but you don't want to end up with hundreds of dollars of chewing damage to your baseboards and cabinets.

  7. They will have a deposit.And mentioned a hutch.And they have had Bunny Number One for a while.So I'm assuming some degree of expertise.

  8. I think this is a great portent! We have an apartment we are trying to rent out in our town, and all over the news has been the release (after 12 years) of an Ax Murderer who will be "renting an apartment, unsupervised" right in our.little.town. Mr. A.M. killed his friend because he thought she was "the antichrist". Hubby has decided to wait to advertise the apartment. The authorities say "he will be fine as long as he takes his meds." Sigh. I want two bunnies, instead.

  14. People who are dedicated house rabbit people *will* bunnyproof. And the vast majority of folks don't have free-roam house buns. It's too risky – for the buns' sake, that is. They're born explorers and not awfully aware of some obvious risks (like height), which is – imo – partly due to the fact that their eyes are on the sides of their heads. (Which can translate into jumping up onto a surface but being afraid to jump down, or miscalculation with a big potential for injury.)

  15. Oops – meant to say if they have the buns caged all the time. Definitely *not* good, and a mark of people who need to learn more about caring for rabbits.

  16. Well it's rented unfurnished.So if they chew on the furniture, it'll mostly be their stuff.There's a little couch and such in there still, but if I left it back there, mostly it means it is expendable.I don't know yet how they plan to deal with them.They were mostly just concerned that I not think the bunnies would mess up the floors and all.They seemed pretty mellow and together — and into their bunnies.So we'll see how it goes.

  17. How is it going to be mixing cats and rabbits.?I've had bad experience with cats and pet rats and pet mice (sigh)

  19. Well, they are indoor bunnies, and the cats don't really have a way into the apartment unless someone lets them in.So they should be pretty safe.And Lali and Mark (bunny attendants) aren't planning to have them outside, where there are not only cats but also possums and raccoons and dogs.We'll see how it goes.

  20. It sounds good so far (judging from what little info. you're able to post). so many people seem to think that rabbits are innately destructive animals, and smelly, and horrible, and… it just baffles me.

  21. I was talking with them about trying to get a cat door cut in the fence for my elderly cat who is sorta FAIL at jumping.And they were explaining about making steps for the one bun who is similarly jump challenged.Which seemed like a good sign.Oh, and they saw a box of tapes labled MST3K and were all excited.(Shared weird interest.)

  22. I'm a little late getting to this post, LW, but I just wanted to say I'm glad you found someone for your apartment. You never know, they might be your best-ever tenants! šŸ™‚

  24. LOL…am glad you did too, and thrilled it worked out for you! Life can be pleasantly surprising if we just let it, eh?

  25. It all sounds very promising. Hope it works out for you, and them, and the buns.

  26. hope the news is still good! they sound like really nice people (buns, MST3K, etc.)., plus those steps for the elderbun are a wonderful thing to do. šŸ™‚

  27. They are just lovely.Nikitakit vamps them as they go by, and I think they slip him food.They take out the garbage bins to the street, if they get up first on pick up day.Am completely okay with them.
