This statement will not surprise anyone: I completely adore my pets- and the pets of my friends- and the pets that walk past me on my way to work- and the entertaining pets that make up much of my internet fun time (I'm looking at you Cute Overload). It takes an effort to edit myself and not just coo over fluffy creatures all day. But sometimes, it is Friday night and you are coming down with a cold and your bunnies are sleeping nose to nose in a little heart shape and you need to just let it all out.
A few days ago, I had some friends over and Acorn got a bath before they arrived so he could look presentable. He still had no manners but at least he wasn't offending anyone's nose. The picture looks like I'm being all mean and splashing his face with the water but the silly guy just walks right under the stream and gets all huffy and mad. The photo up top is post-bath drying session. Please note the back foot in the air yoga action. So after he was all washed and dried, I let him waddle around the kitchen for a few minutes and made a beeline straight into the dustpan and got his quills all wound up with Hodge and Yoshimi's shed fur! I'm beginning to think he likes being dirty.
Hodge and Yoshimi are the opposite. They love being clean. They lick themselves and each other for the better part of the day. Sometimes they offend me by cleaning themselves after every time I pet them. My hands are perfectly clean guys!
As pretty and tidy as she is, Yoshimi isn't above jumping on top of my belly and stealing a bite of my banana.
And Hodge eats hay that he finds under the bed. So, whatever dudes.
After I finish writing this, and watch Maru fit into a small box and a Corgi tresspass on a golf course, I'm going to go drink some tea sitting down on the floor hoping some bunny friend will join me.
Recently, my friend's pet rat passed away and someone else I know has a dog that they love very much who is currently missing so I'm appreciating my animal family even more than usual... which is a whole lot.
