It's an exciting day for the kiddos today! Oh who am I kidding, I was just as excited We went to Blackjack's Rabbit Rescue to check out the bunnies! Since my 8 year old has been angling for a bunny I thought this would be a great idea. Get her introduced and help her learn how to care for a bunny. I like bunnies, they're cute. My husband is against it, naturally. But hey, as Sheldon Cooper says - what's life without whimsy?
I'd never been to a rabbit rescue, but I was looking forward to it. When I walked in this handsome rabbit jumped over to the bars of his cage. Have you ever been kissed by a rabbit? I hadn't either, but Peter was amazing. I went into the designated visitor area with him and quickly learned that if you patted your legs and "Peter! Treats!" He would jump up, nibble on the greens, jump down when he was done and look for more and then there he was back on my lap again. Such a happy fellow, and oh so soft! I would have taken him home then... except
Over on the other side of the room my daughter had found a whole pen of baby bunnies, or kits, as they're called. I'm learning all kinds of things on this bunny venture. Oh my word!! They were like little balls of fluff just jumping around! Now honestly, who can say no to that!?
We had so much fun feeding the rabbits greens and learning about rabbits. It was such an enlightening experience. I can't wait to go back next week!
Thanks Blackjack's Rabbit Rescue for having us out!
You know the saying, the grass is always greener on the other side? This is my attempt to find greener grass right where I am in my life.
BTW - I'm the one on the right, just in case you didn't already know that.
