Digression: The bunny imposter


Baby Moka is really the pride of the family, although there probably isn't much to be proud of. You could wave a stalk of spinach right in front of him and he might just miss it. You could holler his name for five whole minutes but remain ignored. My family thinks he is a little deaf and a little blind. But we still talk about him fondly very often.

Just last night, Yixian and I were exchanging bunny stories. I thought my stock of leopard crawling antics (because his favourite hideout pictured above is a little short for him to hop into, he has to leopard crawl in) would take the cake, until I heard her bunny imposter story.

She had bought a snow-white, lop-eared bunny a while ago. Just a few weeks later, one ear started standing up more often than it should. And now, her lop-eared bunny has morphed into your average white, red-eyed bunny with two upright ears. I have NEVER ever heard of such a case before and couldn't help laughing as she ranted on about being cheated by the petshop.








This makes me wish I was a bunny too. Ah, the life.

Looks like Alix and Moka could be best friends.

If Alix doesn't eat up Moka first. =) I think Moka would die of a heart attack just trying to run away from her.

Alix loves soft and cuddly things. I can't vouch for Sascha. Anyway, I wasn't suggesting that we introduce them for real :P

faith> haha, I guess it is all relative. I don't think I'll be happy if all I could do all day is run around, lie around, eat and sleep.

s> Alix loves (to bite?) soft cuddly things. I know you weren't suggesting it for real, but it would really be great if somehow the three could co-exist happily. I'm really worried Moka feels lonely and sad.

esther>yes he has grown! He has gotten pretty fat, just on HAY and VEGETABLES. How is that possible?! I'm pretty sure if I survived on tons of Hay and Veg I'd be skinny as a stick.

How sweet and peaceful, I wish all animals could have lives like this.
