||Eight months old|
is such a wonderfully, lucky bunny! He started his life full of
challenges. His mommy was killed by a wild animal while she was eating
her dinner in the vegetable garden in the back yard. Stanley and his
brother Weasel were rescued by my mother and fed milk and molasses every
few hours using an empty food coloring bottle. The hard life didn't stop
there! When Stanley was still a baby, my step-dad accidentally
tossed his Stanley work boots on poor little Stan (hence his name).
Stanley now lives in Texas, and his brother Weasel lives with my mom
back in Tennessee. Stan lives with our two cats - he loves to sniff
noses and share a delicious meal of fresh picked grass with them. Stan
loves to do the happy bunny hop and runs circles around my ankles while
making these really cute little grunting sounds If he's ignored even for
a second, he'll thump his feet until we pet him. His favorite spots are
cuddling on the couch or stretched out on the cat stand. He loves to
nibble on my flip flops and sometimes wires (bad boy)!
Some of Stan's favorite foods are sunflower seeds, saltine crackers,
celery leaves, and cilantro. He also likes dog breath treats made from
oat bran, carrots, and parsley - he'll yank them right out of my hand
and run away to hoard his beloved treat! He loves to have his face
petted and will nudge your hand if you stop. He throws his toys around
and could play that game for hours! He also loves to our hands with his
warm little tongue.
We never knew how playful or endearing a little leaping bunny could be!
