It is Kaelyn here and I will start posting once a month now that school is starting. My past three posts have been about cats so, I decided to go to the other animals part of this blog. Today is about bunnies!!
They are cute, lovable, and well, what is not to like? My sister had a bunny for a couple of years. He had a hutch and play are outside and an indoor cage as well. He was a lion-head loppeared bunny. So, he had little bits of hair around his neck like a main and the cutest ears that hung down. He was an adult bunny when we got him and he was pretty big too!! Oh, I almost forgot to tell you his name!! His name was Aslan, like the Lion from Narnia. My Nonna, my mom’s mom, came up with the idea. He liked to run around outside in his outdoor play area, played with soccer balls, and at times be a little aggressive. We all loved him though. In 2017, last fourth of july he passed away with a severe injury. We have no idea how it happened. We were sad but, we have our two sweet cats now.
Aslan will be missed but, my friend who writes on here, she has a bunny named Boo!! WE ALL LOVE HIM!!! We love to hold him when me and my sister go over to her house!
I am sorry that I don’t have any pictures of him here on this laptop that I am using. I may include some cute pictures of him in the next post. I know the story is a little bit sad but, to end on a happy note, let’s here some cool facts about bunnies!!
