boy died February 28, 1997.
He was with us
only four months, but we loved him like no other.
ever wanted to know about Quincy:
- Quincy was once a 4H
bunny, mistreated and starved, so he was taken into foster care by
the Massachusetts House Rabbit Society.
- He was painfully
thin when they got him. His foster mom loved him so much, she gave
him too much food! We reduced his weight and we have a few more
pictures to come...
- He was very fond of
broccoli and his pellets...he got so excited at pellet time, he'd
sometimes nip me if I didn't get them in his dish fast
- When Quincy shed, he
dropped all his fur almost at once, leaving him looking like
someone took an electric razor to parts of his body. Wanna see a
You won't believe it!
- Quincy looked
when he finished shedding. What a handsome boy!
- He liked to be
petted. He's done the bunny flop in his cage and liked to binky
all over the floor at 10pm every night.
- He actually wagged

- Quincy is the only
bunny I have ever known that can be trusted with a rug in his
cage. He didn't eat it!
- He liked to cuddle
with us on the little couch in our living room. When we pet him,
he laid his head flat on our chest (whichever of us was lucky
enough to have him) and grinded his teeth. But he still liked to
get back to his territory in the kitchen.
- Quincy came to us
from the Boston area of Massachusetts, via Utica, NY, then
Binghamton, NY, and finally home. He didn't really enjoy the last
two parts of his trip here. His time with us was much too short,
but we hope he was happy here. We loved him so much and we can't
believe he's gone. He was the sweetest bunny we have ever
