Monday Bunday--Cutie Agouti

I am republishing this to correct a typo and add an email to send a pic of your agouti for Mondah Bunday of next week.

This is Silver. Agouti describes her color. It means that each hair has bands of light and dark, so if you part the hair, if she lets you, the hair close to her skin is very light, but each hair has a very dark tip. This is not the same as having a very fine light undercoat. Each hair has destinct bands of light, medium, and dark.

She loves to be petted, so she will let you see the hair, but only if you have the attitude of being honored by petting her, not to satisfy your curiosity. You have to realize that your place in the pecking order is below hers.

Silver came from the animal shelter in Oakland, CA.

Agouti is a beautiful color. Many agouti buns wait for forever homes. Here are some agouti buns waiting at Rabbit Haven of Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley. If you have an agouti bun, send me a picture and your rabbit can be on next week's Monday Bunday!

It's a good thing you added that caveat about place in the pecking order and being honored to be allowed to pet the bun. I was worried for your safety when you revealed Silver's secret: that she likes to be petted. Agouti buns are very cute, I think my Mercedes is an agouti.

Harriet is an agouti, when she sheds she is sort of brindled too, I call her the brindle bun....she doesn't care.
