Furmily: Creamie & Crunchie

Rane was walking me (Sugar) around the estate one night when we came across a cage on a large field. When we approached the cage, we saw a pair of skinny rabbits with no food or water source. Rane was secretly hoping that someone had left them there temporarily and would pick them up in due time, thus we continued our walk. Even though it's our cherished walk time, Rane paid little attention to me as she couldn't stop thinking of the two rabbits.

While walking back home, Rane decided to make a detour and check if the rabbits were still there. Much to her expectations, no one came forward to 'claim' the rabbits. Feeling worried for their welfare, she decided to bring them home, much to her parents' dismay (as Rane's parents felt that there were too many animals at home). It was a long walk home asRane had great difficulties handling me with one hand and carrying the cage with another.


Rane had initially named the white rabbit 'Milky' and the brown rabbit 'Honey' but Rane's mother felt that the names sounded too feminine for boys, thus Rane renamed them 'Creamie' and 'Crunchie'. However, Rane's mum always forget that their names were 'Creamie' and 'Crunchie', and decided to call them'Whitish' and 'Brownish' instead.

Worried for their health, Rane brought both the rabbits to the vet and they were deemed to be malnourished and underweight. On top of that, they were infested with mites. The vet estimated Creamie to be 4 to 5 years old, while Crunchie was less than a year old. That was in 2007.


Today, after receiving lots of Tender Loving Care (TLC), the boys blossomed into handsome rabbits; they were no longer the scrawny rabbits with matted fur. They enjoy each other's company, with Creamie being the more dominant rabbit. They share most of their lives together; from the same litter box, to the same food bowl, to the same water bowl and the same living area.

They are both beautiful. Your mom is wonderful for caring enough to save them! We think it's funny that you have rabbits and rabbit hounds.
