When the words from qep’a’ 23 were shared back in July, qurgh added a comment:

   Dr. Okrand noted that what prompted Maltz to come up with this word
   in this context was not clear.

Clearly a not-so-subtle hint for us to discover the pun.   I assumed it was a name; but type “rabbit  ches” into your browser’s Search window and see for yourselves …

[For "bunny"... There's a Klingon animal that's sort of like a rabbit called a {cheS}. So a rabbit on Earth would be, I guess, a {tera' cheS}, though, in context, {cheS} is good enough. And a "bunny," I supposed is a {cheSHom} or maybe {cheSoy}.] e-mail MO to naHQun July 4, 2016
