Cherish and Share: Bun Bun's Story


Twyla’s apartment had a strict no-pet policy but with a little sweet-talking, Twyla convinced her landlord to let BunBun move in. The landlord couldn’t help but fall in love with the little black and white rescue rabbit. Pretty soon she was making regular trips upstairs to bring her treats. “Everyone that met [BunBun] loved her,” says Twyla. “She had a very strong personality.”

BunBun had free range of Twyla’s home and would hop into bed every morning at 7am to wake her up with kisses. She loved to hover at Twyla’s feet while she was cooking, taking advantage of her clumsy chopping skills to clean up stray bits of kale and runaway carrots. “She would go great lengths for a nibble of banana or pear.” She was also an avid fan of the Oxbow treat bag and would come ripping around the corner when she heard it crinkling. 

BunBun enjoyed playing with empty paper towel rolls and her favourite plastic slinky. When she wasn’t frolicking or searching for snacks, she liked to curl up in a sunbeam or next to her companion and fellow rescue rabbit, Baxter. “We spent many sunny afternoons napping together on the couch, the floor, or wherever the [sun] was,” says Twyla.

One of Twyla’s favourite memories is the time BunBun turned into a guard rabbit. “Once someone was trying to get into my apartment door (turns out it was just a neighbour who was on the wrong floor) but as I stood there frozen, staring in silence at the door wondering what the heck I should do, BunBun raced over and stood in front of me, grunting and ready to charge if someone had come in.”

BunBun was already five or six years old when Twyla adopted her in the fall of 2011 and she spent seven happy years in Twyla’s care. Sadly, BunBun passed away at around 12 years of age. Twyla knew it was time when BunBun stopped jumping up into bed every day for a good morning cuddle.

BunBun was a black and white Dutch rabbit. Twyla chose to have her impression match her fur. “It is 100% perfect,” she says. Twyla displays BunBun’s impression in the living room next to the impression of her other companion, Baxter. “Best buddies, together again. I can still watch the news after work with BunBun beside me.”

Fond memories and a cherished impression aren’t the only things BunBun left behind. The leases at Twyla’s building have since been updated to officially allow pets!
