Hi! I’m Lionel! My person, Laura, wanted me to tell you a little about myself. I am 2ish years old. I am a VERY handsome Lionhead mix, so I am fluffy and have very dashing muttonchops. Quite dignified. I also have wispy bangs that fall over my eyes, because I‘m a rebel. I spend lots of time fixing my ’do, of course, but what dashing rabbit wouldn’t?
I had a different home before this one, but I don’t really want to talk about it. I ended up in a shelter, then Laura came and took me home with her. That’s when all the fun began!
Laura loves to spoil me. I have lots of toys and treats, hay and pellets. She used to feed me grass and clover from her yard, but not anymore. I got snuffles soon after I moved in with her, and when she took me to the doctor he said I probably got it from an outside bunny who was eating the same yummy grass! That same doctor also did something to me: I fell asleep, and when I woke up… well… THINGS were missing! Laura was right there when I woke up, and that made me feel better, since she was keeping an eye on me the whole time.
I enjoy running and playing, leaping and jumping, and especially terrorizing my two kitty-sisters! The orange one sometimes lets me play tag with her (she runs, I tag) all around the living room, but the other one is SUPER scared of me! I like to leap up onto the couch and scare the bajeezus out of her! Once, I accidentally landed on top of her! Man, can she run! Laura says that’s not very nice, but it’s really fun!
I don’t mind not having bunny friends. I like having all Laura’s attention for myself. I don’t like to be picked up, but I do like to snuggle with her in a blanket all curled up on the couch. That also makes it easy to sneak up on unsuspecting kitties!
All in all, I have a pretty awesome time with Laura. She stacks things (blocks, cups, yarn, etc) and I knock them over. She finds new textures for me to lick – my favorites are socks and t-shirts. We snuggle and sometimes I even let her brush me, but only for a couple of seconds (I don’t want her to ruin my perfectly styled fur). She gives me lots of yummy treats and keeps me safe and warm.
I will close with a thank-you to everyone who has a pet bunny. We love you, our people, and knowing how much you love us makes us the happiest pets in the world!
