||Two years old|
||Harford, New York, USA|
is Natasha Rabbitova. Natasha is the most loving, cuddly lap bunny I
have ever known. Most rabbits don't like to be held, and my last rabbit would
never sit on my lap - he'd sit next to me, but never on my lap. Natasha is
completely different - nothing makes her happier than jumping onto my chest
and kissing my face as I pet her. She'll lie on my lap for half an hour or
more as I stroke her fur, which is a pleasure because her fur is the softest,
most velvety texture possible.
In addition to her loving personality, Natasha is very smart. She recognizes
lots of words, including her name, "lie down", "up" and "go in" (to go into
her cage). Of course, she also knows "treat" and "snack" and "dinner" -
pretty much anything which means she's going to get something to eat sends
her running onto the second floor of her cage, impatient for a meal (she's
basically an appetite wrapped in fur).
She's also got a mischievous side to her personality - she loves to jump onto
the keyboard of my computer to make fun beeping noises. At one point I was
trying to edit pictures and not paying sufficient attention, so she jumped
into my lap, turned to the keyboard and scrabbled at the keys with her paws.
I don't know how she did it, but every open window on the screen closed, and
she logged me out of windows. Then she turned around, stretched up to kiss my
chin, and waited for me to pet her. I've got one smart bunny!
