White Bunny

My 29th birthday 
it was set up to be a miserable experience
without many friends or family
I was left to smile through the half-created festivities
my best friend showed up with a box
and sat it on my lap
and a bunny appeared.
A real life bunny rabbit
She was tiny and white and scared
and I picked her up gently
and whispered, "youre home".
Albino, my friend found her on a country road
2 months old, with no camoflague
And of course she thought of her best friend who cant deny an animal
and whose birthday just happened to be hours away.
That first day, my birthday, I held that bunny close.
She didnt fight, but now I know how much of a shocked baby she was.
I researched and read, watched countless videos.
I bought her a huge cage and started litter training her right away.
Its now 6 months later...
Ive worried over her more than any animal Ive ever loved
I took her to get her fixed and got really scared when I realized the vet knew less than I did.
She lived, and healed, and then she ate 6 buttons off the remote, 2 pieces of saltwater taffy, and 4 inches of hard plastic.
But she comes running for her treats and hops into my bed like a super-bunny
She kisses my hands and arms and knees and I know she loves me back.
The way she drinks up a bunch of water, then licks her lips for minutes and still drips water everywhere
The way when I call for her she looks so suspicious, wondering if its time for medicine or bathing or nail trimming.
Thats my bunny.
She makes giant messes, she eats like a horse, shes always looking nervous, shes always doing binkies or flopping her heavy body down
My pretty pure white bunny was 2 small pounds when I got her, and now she weighs 12, more than all my cats
And all of my cats are afraid of her, she tramples them when they are sleeping. She amuses me.

    I also wanted to say that I believe rabbits are all very intelligent! They just choose to show it in their own way. My Lucy can be extremely stubborn, will ignore me calling to her at times and other times comes running. She can sense when im about to handle her which she hates and I have to trick her. She has brought so much love into my life that I forgive her for destroying everything I own. And I literally mean everything!!

    I used to raise rabbits years ago, but stopped after I discovered they displayed unmutable incorrigibility. Your pets sounds more intelligent than most other ones.

    Wow Gina! You've showcased the story of your bunny very well - I love the way you obviously take joy in the daily occurrences and mention the various things your bunny does. It is amazing where companionship and friendship can come from. Very well written!

    I have to wonder who's the more fortunate one: you or your bunny? You both seem to have been enriched by being together. A lovely write, my friend. Licia :-)
