Default Need a transhumanist bunnygirl template

I have need for a "bunnygirl" template for the unofficial Gernsback-2 setting. This is a on-the-verge-of-transhumanist setting (not as developed as Transhuman Space) where biomodification is still in its infancy. Spectacular successes are known, but so are spectacular failures, and (so far) every biomodification is a one-off. (On the flip side, the setting's superscience allows biomodification of an adult life form... but there's no going back.)

All biomodification racial templates in this setting must have this meta-trait: Unusual Biochemistry [-5]; Dependency ("random roll" food or drink item; very common, weekly) [-10]; Taboo Trait (Genetic Defects) [0]; Minor Addiction ("random roll" food or drink related to but not Dependency) [-1].

That's the background. My current problem: I have need to insert a "bunnygirl" into the setting. Not a sexy human female wearing an outfit that Playboy made famous - a human-sized highly-anthropomorphic lagomorph. (Although there's nothing stopping one of these bunnygirls from wearing that outfit; she just wouldn't need the ears and tail, since she's got her own built-in.) The trouble is, I don't keep a pet and my copy of GURPS Bunnies and Burrows is deep in storage, so I have no idea what a bunny person would have in the way of racial attributes. Long ears, powder-puff tail, and a light covering of fur are obvious traits, but what are the game effects of those, and what do they have internally that I don't know about?

I'm aiming in the neighbourhood of 100 points for the template, give or take 25 points. (Starting characters are usually around 250 points in this setting.)

So... what does the template look like, aside from the meta-trait?

Well, the easy bits... Augmented hearing and probably smell, Fur perk, and possibly a point of flexible DR if the fur is thick enough.

That's a start, certainly. Thanks!

(I forgot to mention this, but it may be important: since this is a shared-world, everything has to be RAW - no house rules.)

Super Jump sounds like it would work here, Blunt Claws also, and depending on how bunny-ish the hands/paws are, a few levels of Ham Fisted.

Bunnies are Lecherous and freeze up (Combat Paralysis) under stress for physical (hormonal and neurological) reasons, so depending on what you want it would be easy to justify those traits for this.

I usually give most things with Fur [1] a level of Temperature Tolerance, even if it isn't thick enough for DR.

Fun (or Not-So-Fun if your pet bunny has eaten the wrong thing) Fact: Bunnies can't vomit, and are thus very Susceptible to digestive toxins.

Feature: Crepuscular (Sleeps 1/3 of the time, broken up into 4 hour periods centered around Noon and Midnight).

Wow, 100 points is a lot. For a hundred points, you can get a SWAT team officer from GURPS Cops minus a few points for a dark past or inexperience. The various races in Dungeon Fantasy tend toward the 20-point mark.

Pets, maybe, but many wild rabbits are tough mothers capable of taking out larger house cats.

Are you sure that's right? It seems to me the one things rabbits are good at is running away. Perhaps a special Combat Paralysis (Run Away) disadvantage is called for, for characters who are not stunned in the face of violence, but who dearly want to run run run away. Perhaps a -10 disadvantage rather than -15.
