Our pet rabbit cuddles photo shoot


Tummy rub

Tummy rub

Our pet rabbit inspired me to a photo shoot.
A while back we introduced her to a new flavor. She sniffed & favored her blanket instead. The contrast in colours were too obvious to ignore a photographic opportunity.
Cuddles, tummy & head rubs are her favorite. She’s a handful (a lot of cleaning up & protecting wires around the house) but well worth it ­čÖé

The sequel of our rabbits

This is Flappy!
┬ęcopyright2014owpp

About two years ago our children begged us for a rabbit which I adamantly refused because life experience taught me it would inevitably all fall on me, the cleaning, feeding, joy & pain… Then recently, I caved in on the condition that it wouldn’t, I guess we never learn ­čśë
(we had two hamsters more than twenty years ago see…https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/2012/10/09/our-hamsters-burial/ an essay I wrote for a writing course)
So, we looked on the internet (big mistake there!) & went on a drive to buy a two month old Albino buck which was taken away from its mother, without us understanding the consequence (second mistake!) we loved him on sight & called him Flappy because of what we thought were his floppy ears, that’s how oblivious we were… total newbies!
Five days later after taking a big place in our home, Flappy broke our heart & died for what seemed, no apparent reason, until I worked hours on the internet to collect as much information as possible in order to understand the why’s that kept turning in our head & found out that private breeders have a high mortality rate & that two months old is still too young to separate from the mother if we were told the truth about its age!
After respectfully parting from him we went to look, this time in a shop, for one that would fill the huge gap Flappy had created in such a short tract & found a four month old doe (we made sure of that too) that was not with its mother, meaning old enough to be adopted by us without dying on us.
I fell for Kwaki (the name our kids insisted upon) for her big eyes & beautiful fur & came home with the hope that everyone would love her as much as I already did… which happened to some quicker than others but she quickly won over ­čśë
Kwaki is nearly four months with us now & soon eight months of age, we’ve learnt everything we could over rabbits, to the last detail, she’s a cheeky, healthy one with a load of character, keeps us on our toes, there is a pile of cleaning up after, that mostly falls on me, I’ve built her “castles” from free supermarket boxes(yes, she munches her way through them!) but we adore her ­čÖé
Nevertheless every time we see photos of our Flappy we still have this slight squeeze & miss that white bundle of fur…

Here are some photos of the two I hope you’ll enjoy!
