||Seattle, Washington, USA|
is my American Fuzzy Lop, Machine Bun Kelly *named after Machine
Gun Kelly, the notorious mobster, because she is a notorious monster*.
We call her Appa. I know, nothing to do with the name, but my daughter
said she looks just like the flying bison,
her favorite cartoon, The Last Avatar.
She is allowed outside as long as the garage door is open, so that she
can run away from evil cats. She knows her boundaries, and doesn't go
outside of our yard. Don't worry, we didn't use any harmful dyes on her.
Her strange coloring is due to berry juice leftover from making
huckleberry, cherry and blackberry pies. After she got her nose into the
bowl, and came up pink, I had a crazy idea. I rubbed different kinds
onto different parts, and she thoroughly enjoyed licking it off until
I rinsed her in the tub. We live next door to a school, so the kids
always visit the "cotton candy bunny."
She does know a few tricks. She does 'binkies' for fruit slices, she can
walk upright on her back legs (very strange looking,) and she knows how
to hop from the couch to the bookcase and then the top of the cabinet
and open the door from the top with her paw to get to the 'hidden' mango
treats on the top shelf inside. If she can't push them out, she sits up
there and thumps until we rescue her and give her one! Manipulative
monster. She also chases any cats that get near our yard, and has never
met a worthy opponent.
Her personality is very 'female,' she is affectionate, licking and
cleaning our heads and any stuffed animals she finds. She has 'adopted'
three bunnies whose mother died. She has shown them the boundaries of
our yard, growling and giving them a good nip if they wander off, even
though they are grown now. She is also very jealous when my friend
brings her bunny over. She sulks under the couch, thumps, and ignores us
for hours after she is gone. She looks like a hefty bun, but she is
always flipping in the air and racing up and down the hallways. She has
become quite attached to my 8-year-old daughter, and follows her most
everywhere, which has caused for some awkward bathroom trips and having
to check under the car each time I'm taking my daughter somewhere. We
often take her to the beach with us, to parks, etc., where she gets
plenty of attention and has to be kept on a 40-ft tether to keep her OUT
of the water! Out of several bunnies I've owned over my lifetime, she is
definitely the most interesting!
There are a few videos on
my YouTube account.
