~ Marshmellow and Harvey-Dent ~
Just over a year ago, Marshmellow found her forever home. Not long after, Harvey-Dent found his forever home. Since then, they and their forever family have formed a very special bond.
In 2020, at six weeks old, Marsmellow was adopted. Just before the Covid-19 lockdown in Melbourne, Australia, their humans wanted a furry friend to keep them company. It was a stressful time, and they felt having a rabbit would be best. The rabbit was the smallest of her litter, so was a bit timid at first. However, after a while, Marshmellow gradually warmed up to them and they created a bond.
Following the first lockdown, Marshmellow’s humans felt it was good to welcome in a new furry friend to keep her company. They found a small bunny, named Harvey-Dent, on their local RSPCA website. They organised a meeting via Zoom and felt an instant connection and decided to adopt him. Even better, Marshmellow and Harvey-Dent bonded almost immediately.
Having Marshmellow and Harvey-Dent has helped their humans to have more structure and routine in their lives. It was hard to switch off after work and step away from the reminders of the ongoing pandemic. However, having their bunnies, or ‘bunkids’ as they are sometimes known, they have had more happiness and comfort in each day. So much so they are often referred to being their humans’ emotional support animals. Not only this, but it’s hard to start the day off badly when you wake up to a bunny face!
Not long after adopting Marshmellow and Harvey-Dent did their humans start an Instagram account for them. This has helped a lot in that they’ve been able to meet many people and other rabbit parents. The bunnies have enriched their humans’ lives in ways they didn’t know possible.
Something they all enjoy doing together is eating strawberries! It’s a time they can enjoy each other’s company and appreciate some yummy snacks. Their humans also love to watch the bunnies play together. Marshmellow is very much the trickster while Harvey-Dent loves cuddles and often licks his humans’ faces.
The bond that Marshmellow and Harvey-Dent have formed with their humans is truly special. They have brought immense joy and so much love into their lives and have definitely had a positive impact on one another’s lives.
