If you’ve been to Rabbitat events before, you may recognize Toby. Toby was one of our crowd favourites, who was brought to many Rabbitat events by his human mom, Tori. At 10lbs, Toby was a Flemish giant cross who had a gentle heart. He was great with children and allowed them to pet him at events.
Toby was even featured in a car commercial one year!
Tori originally fostered Toby in 2013, and then decided to adopt him in after falling in love with his sweet personality. Tori often fostered bunny babies during their time together. The baby bunnies took comfort in the gentle giant, and would love to snuggle and play with Toby.
Other than attending Rabbitat events, Toby loved being taken outside and enjoyed the fresh air. When he binkied around in the grass, he showed his giant size and happiness! People would often stop and admire his size.
Tori’s favourite part about having Toby was the company he gave her. The most challenging thing was having to bunny proof her home, as well as keeping chewable things out of his reach. Even then, he was a sweetheart who never said no to food.
Unfortunately Toby passed away last year, but he still holds a special place in our hearts. We thank him for being such a lovable bunny at all the events he attended.
