Rosemary

Rosemary is the sweetest little black bunny in the world. She resides at my parent's place up North, and she rules the house (she's a free-range house bunny).

She expects her breakfast the moment my dad wakes up... and if he wanders around a bit first, she's right at his heels, scratching at his legs, demanding to be fed. This behaviour is repeated when my mom gets up, maybe an hour later. She adores being stroked on the forehead, and will go into a little trance when she's being petted. If my dad lies down on the ground, she'll coyly circle him (maybe scratch at his legs) and then get into position (crouched, with her forehead under his hand) so he can pet her. So adorable!

I took this photo of her after Christmas. She's a little ticked off that her tree / hiding place was taken down. She sulked under this coffee table for a week or so. But every evening, she'd still hop into the kitchen and hover by the fridge so that I could give her an evening snack of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots.

Awwww... I want a bunny!

awww...she's so pretty. My rabbit, Twix, was given away to a little boy.

What a sweetie. I always thought rabbits were probably kinda simple and personality-less. BUT then my buddy rescued a bunny from the roadside and she's now his pet.

He named her Virgil (before the vet informed him that it was a girl), and Virgil is VERY protective of these three wooden duck decoys that sit in front of my friend's fireplace. If you move (let alone TOUCH) one of these ducks, Virgil very insistently re-jigs them — she does this with her teeth, picks them up by the napes of their necks, and re-adjusts till their back to facing their original directions... It's a riot!

I want a bunny too...

Rosemary sounds like quite the character. Very cute indeed!

And Mchen's story is hilarious!
