Bunnies In My Kitchen

Happy New Year! (albeit a little late...). Many of you know how much I love rabbits. It all started when I was a little girl and asked the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and anyone else who would listen for a "REAL LIVE BUNNY WITH FLOPPY EARS AND SOFT FUR" every single year. As you can imagine, I never got my real live bunny. Fast forward about 15 years to a rinky dink pet shop in Athens, Georgia...home of my fabulous DAWGS. My then-boyfriend and I went to buy his fish some food, and lo and behold, in the back of the pet store there was a kennel with cute, furry lop-eared baby bunnies. I was capitavated. The owner informed me that one of them was a "runt" and was about to become snake food. Well, you guessed it. I whipped out my VISA card and wouldn't you know it, my Daddy bought me a bunny after all. My little ball of fluff came to be known as "Cassie Bunny". His given name was Casmir (prounounced Cashmere). OH, how I loved that rabbit. I had him neutered (lessens aggression supposedly), I walked him with a harness and leash (or would that be "hopped" him???), I created a runway for him in the hall so he could frolic, I took him to grocery in my purse and bought him fresh brussel sprouts and even got him to hop out of a basket one Easter morning. Unfotunately, he died when he was 5, which is a pretty good lifespan for a bunny in captivity. I have adored bunnies ever since. I have lots of bunnies in my house and wanted to share a few of my bunnies with you all...enjoy! PS: The cute red owl was a gift from my friend Stacey. Thank you Stacey!
