would like to present my best friend Poppy the house rabbit. She
is my pride and joy.
Poppy is very affectionate if she is in the mood - she loves licking my
face and cuddling into me in my bed. She loves toast and jumps up on
the couch beside my husband in the morning and tries to steal the toast
off his plate. She once grabbed a whole slice and ran away with it.
She makes a cooing sound when she is happy and loves to follow me
around. She sits at the kitchen door at tea time waiting for her food
and will happily do laps of the living room chasing us until we give her
She often "plays dead" something I was horrified about at first, however
I am assured that this simply means that she is completely relaxed and
content. She has her own room filled with lots of toys and she loves
her cardboard castle. This is where she goes when she wants to be alone.
She recently got her photo taken by a professional pet photographer and
we are delighted with the results although the photographer says she was
one of his most difficult clients. One of the photos summed her up
perfectly - lady of the manor!
I hate leaving her when we go on holiday but we have a super bunny
sitter. She is a veterinary nurse and she comes into the house to look
after her. I always shed a few tears when saying good-bye to her even
though I know she will be well looked after. I adore Poppy and love her
company. I would be devastated to lose her.
