In-home Nature Show |
Sarah, the resident guinea pig person at the humane society, made an astute observation about who she thought was the right type of person for that small companion animal. After describing their various needs and antics, she noted that if you like watching nature programs, you may enjoy living with a guinea pig.
I can't speak for guinea pig folks, but it certainly seems to be true for rabbit people. (Note: there are people with rabbits, and there are rabbit people.) Much of the pleasure of living with a rabbit is absorbed through watching them go about their day. There is something wonderfully sweet about the way a rabbit sleeps. I mean, cats can be amusing when they nap, but there's something special about bunnies-in the way they wash their faces or eat parsley sprigs, and especially in the way they yawn.
Of course, not everyone you meet feels this way. Or, as bunny fosterparent Donna Jensen puts it, if you see a rabbit dozing and you think, is that all their is?, then a rabbit is not for you.
WHAT'S IT LIKE?
Living with a rabbit means watching Bugsy bob and weave his head, and take one tentative step at a time, as he tries to figure out if the piles of dirty laundry in the hall aren't really monsters. (He goes through this on a weekly basis.)
