Scully came to the rescue from Hillsborough County Animal Shelter in September 2014. Her hair was very short, her nails needed clipping and she needed a bath. Her first stop was the vet. Based upon her microchip, we know that she was at least 10 years old. After a review from the vet, we discovered that Scully must have been in some sort of trama. She has an old fracture of her pelvis. Her one eye is gray blue in color. She can still see out of that eye but it is very blurry. Thank God, it did not have to be removed!. She has no teeth in her mouth and her nose is crooked. It is like it was pushed to one side. To top all of these issues, she is deaf.
Scully was quite unsure about our house when she arrived. She was very scared and did not want to leave the corner. She warmed up quite fast. Her personality started shining through. She hops and jumps like a bunny when she wants treats and food. She likes to go for walks on a leash. And at bedtime, she wants to be tucked in with a blanket.
Scully uses the yard and the lanai to relieve herself. She has no clue what to do with puppy pads.
Update September 2016: Scully is on thyroid meds twice a day. She has learned the routine. Unfortunately, we cannot change the routine. Scully gets very nervous and scared when I do that. Otherwise, she is still here. I have been trying to use hand signals for her to understand when treats are done, or time to come in from the yard. We can no longer take her to a groomer because she will not sit still. The vet needs 3 people to clip her nails. Other than that, my deaf, blind bunny is a happy pom!
