5/31/06 Mid-week bunny fix

Happy Feet


This photo of Cricket shows a pose that is very familiar to bunny owners. When a bunny is feeling particularly content and safe they will stretch all the way out with their feet behind them. A bunny can't get away quickly when they're in this position; in fact my big guys scrabble and slide around on the floor for a bit before they manage to get upright.
Bunny people call this "happy feet" and think of it as the ultimate form of bunny relaxation.

What a sweet pic!
(at least someone has happy feet!)
Your bunnies must bring you so much joy. As the commercial says, "Life is better with animals".

Tidbit does a lot of that. She's so trusting that I sometimes wonder if she's maybe not all that bright.

Thanks for the pic!

I love that picture of the happy feet! Also wanted to tell you I enjoy reading your blog. While I don't have pet bunnies, I do have a wild one that lives under the porch. It was just a baby a few weeks ago - growing fast! Comes to the window every morning for a handout. I love bunnies!

That is the cutest pic, Laura. What a delightful pose of contentment. I've never seen a bunny quite as relaxed as that.

I just love your bunnies. That's why I bookmarked your site. To see what you guys were up to. Had a Bunny once a long time ago.
His name was fluffy Jo

One of these days I'll get a pic of Boomer and Cricket both flopped out like that! I love to take pics of them - but wonder if they don't all look the same to someone who doesn't *love* them like I do.

silverlight: Thanks for stopping by - glad you found me! More bunny pics to come.
