||Nine months old|
||Bohus, Västra Götaland, Sweden|
is my little bunny, Love. (It's a Swedish boy's name, so even if it
sounds like it's the word, here it's a name, and of course, pronounced
differently.) When you say "love" you don't really put any "energy" into the
letters, but in the name "love" here in Sweden, you put extra energy on the O
and E. It is hard to explain, but kind of like "lOvE". Almost as if saying
"love" in an exaggerated way!
Plenty of little traits makes him quite a special little bunny. When we got
him from a breeder, right before new year, he was the smallest of his
siblings, and due to his siblings pushing him away and the breeders lack of
attention, he was so tiny and skinny. So when we brought him home and he got
to eat his first proper meal in weeks, he literally ate 24 hours straight. He
even ate in his sleep the first 24 hours here. And after a while, started
gaining plenty of energy, bouncing around all over the apartment happily, and
for obvious reasons, doesn't miss his siblings one bit.
But he's grown to be a very thankful, loving and friendly little guy. Loves
to give people kisses on the hands and cheek if they come close enough.
Sometimes he even tries jumping up on the bed and desk to come give me a kiss
just to show how much he loves being here.
When you put your hand in the cage, it doesn't matter what he's doing, he
never bites, only kiss or press his head up into your hand, wanting to be
petted and get his ears rubbed. If he's asleep, he feels safe enough not to
be spooked and get up if you open the cadge and pet him. He just stretches
out a bit extra so that you can rub his back. He eats pretty much anything.
He's not picky about food at all. But who would be after what he went trough
his first four months in life?
His favorite activities is to go outside and run around, either in the woods,
or at an old fortress close by. The fortress is his absolute favorite place.
He usually runs around in there for hours, bouncing about happily, 'til he
eventually grows exhausted and falls asleep on the grass on the walls. And
oddly enough, he absolutely loves riding the bus, since he knows that when we
do, we're headed to the fortress for him to play around. Everyone who works
there knows who he is by now, since we have made it a habit to go there as
often as possible. Especially Sundays, as we made Sundays his special
fortress visit day, as long as the weather allows.
He really is the most friendly and loving bunny anyone could ever ask for.
