Bunny therapy is finally re-opening after a crazy two years of Covid and a big move with a much bigger remodel! I know how hard the past two years has been for many families and I am excited to see you all again plus some new faces hopefully!
We no longer are located in Kent but have moved to Auburn Washington. Honestly, I never thought I'd live in Auburn. The main area I was looking to move to was Hobart/ Maple Valley but God had other plans and He's planted me here. Our neighborhood is so wonderful and quiet. We live a few houses down from Sir Mix A lot. I was thinking of asking him to come to an event here to perform " I like big buns and I cannot lie". We'll see how that goes. I prayed for at least an acre and we got 5! Such a blessing and miracle. Knowing me, I will have to branch out and get more animals but in this season of life I have been flying ALL over the U. S to hand deliver our precious buns to their new families. Last year I racked up 300,000 miles with Alaska Airlines. Flights were much cheaper then so we will see what this year brings.
After the Blue Clover Rabbitry Instagram got hacked at the beginning of this year I was very hesitant to re open bunny therapy. Honestly I went through a rough time frantically panicking and praying I would get it back. Having 275K+ followers was my main source of advertising. It took about five years to create and in a moment it was just gone. IG doesn't really have a good customer service base. Actually, let me rephrase, their customer service is non existent! I've heard of many other people getting hacked and their accounts being restored after 6 months so there is still hope! During this journey I had to realize that I can't rely on anything other than God. I believe without a doubt that God will draw my customers and whoever shows up to bunny therapy will be ordained for that date even if the sessions don't fill and I'm completely ok with that now. I want to make meaningful connections with my community and share the love of these precious little ones with you all!
There will be a few changes with bunny therapy that I would like to share. The price has increased a few dollars because our remodel was $70,000 which was no where near what I thought it would be. I'm in debt for life but it was worth it so I could share the joy of bunny therapy with everyone! Unlike the first Bun Mansion, you will be able to use a restroom on site. Yippee! I know many of you will be excited for this! As of right now children are not permitted under the age of 13. Last year we had too many incidents of children not being gentle with the baby bunnies after being corrected multiple times. Bunny therapy was designed to bring relaxation to our families and it was getting to rowdy and hectic with children running around. Quite honestly after 10 minutes, most kids were done and wanted something more stimulating. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of families that had children that thoroughly enjoyed the entire hour but because of the majority that were mishandling the babies and running around, I had to take action. It wasn't enjoyable for most of the adults that were attending and I will not risk the safety of my animals. Therefore, you must be 13 years or older to attend. I plan on making separate children events in the future, so for you families with young children, do not fret and keep an eye out for updates!
That's all for now folks! Have a blessed weekend!
