I've had this rabbit for almost two and a half months and just called him 'bunny' until a name struck me. (His old name was Waffle, which was fine, but I like to give animals new names when they become part of my family). He's a lionhead and has this wild hair and amazing muttonchops/beard and finally it coalesced. Gimli. Yes. Ground-dwelling, digging, bearded critter.
Gimli used to belong to my ex-roommate. When he moved out I offered to take the rabbit because I knew that he'd be super busy with a new wife and infant on the way. He already worked a day job and the bun didn't get out much. The rabbit was given to him by a crazy girlfriend. (Word to the wise, animals NEVER make good surprise gifts unless you absolutely know the person is looking for a pet and has the resources and temperament to care for them. I'm always horrified when I see animals being given away as prizes for whatever.)
The bunny was never abused and rarely startled so he hasn't been at all aggressive or fearful and was handled enough that being touched didn't bother him. Frankly, he's the most well-mannered rabbit that I've ever met, though shy of noises (which is just the way lionheads tend to be). At first he didn't understand fresh green food or socializing but now he demands greens and wants only to sit in your lap and groom you. As soon as he sits down, Ki, the cat, sees that laps are accepting occupants and must also partake.
Ki was a street cat living in Oklahoma City. A friend discovered her outside her parents house, after talking to the neighbors, found out that she had no home and had been on the streets for at least a few months. So she brought her to me.
Ki is a weird cat who loves to sleep on shoulders like stole and enjoys making prolonged eye contact. I've never had a cat who liked gazing into someone's face. She's uncommonly good at reading expressions and has a very wide vocabulary. She also comes to you when she's called.
That poor towel is an art towel and has textile dye all over it
Also my crazy blue pajama pants. Also my crazy hair!!
I will now gush about how both of my animals are my darling babies and I love them forever! They are my darling babies! I love them forever! My little blobs.
