||Eight months old|
||Holland lop, Angora mix|
adopted Sophie when she was a baby from a couple whose female had a litter.
She was born with two ears but her mother bit one off when she was just a
couple weeks old. She has a brother who has no ears left whom the couple
kept. Her missing ear does not seem to affect her at all, she tries to wash
her missing ear the way she washes the other one, and now she's bonded to my
New Zealand/California mix rabbit Hank, who cleans her ears for her now, they
are buddies for life. Hank is only a baby, really, and Sophie has been his
friend since I adopted him. Sophie used to be so shy and now she bosses Hank
around and loves to be held and petted.
One of the pictures has Hank in it - it is difficult to separate them to get
photos of her by herself. They are now a real team! And her missing ear just
makes her unique, that's all! We love her very much, and are glad her missing
ear doesn't bother her. She hops about, and does everything a normal rabbit
would do but prefers to spend time snuggling with Hank, when she's not being
loved on by her people, of course.
