Disabled Bunny, Scooty Poof, Uses Wheelchair

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Most bunnies hop around, but one Upstate bunny doesn't - it wheels around.

Scooty Poof, 2, is unable to walk. It gave birth too young and it paralyzed her back legs. But its disability hasn't stopped it from getting around - it uses a makeshift wheelchair complete with two wheels and even a diaper.

But the wheelchair isn't just for fun - it's for the bunny's well being. McClellan said disabled animals can have self-esteem issues, and the mobility the wheelchair provides helps.

"This isn't just for us - 'Oh, look how cute the bunny is moving around in her cart,' said Laura McClellan, who adopted the bunny. "This is all for her and what's making her happy as an animal."

McClellan said she wants to find another, larger wheelchair because the bunny has outgrown its set of wheels. "She's got a lot of attitude with her back legs and so I kind of think the motion she likes to do with her back legs has a tendency to make her wobble a little bit more."

McClellan said the wheelchair allows the bunny to strengthen its legs. She said there is a chance it will walk (or hop) on its own, again.

And if that's not cute enough for you, here's a video of a sleepy Scooty Poof snuggling with her stuffed bunny.
