Kathy Smith and Lucile Moore, authors of When Your Rabbit Needs Special Care, have recently released a new rabbit book. A collection of 39 stories, Touched by a Rabbit puts a spotlight on house rabbits’ unique personalities and the special bond between rabbit and rabbit owner.
Here is an excerpt from the story “A Rabbit for All Seasons” by Lisa Ivers:
Within a year she was unrecognizable as her former self. Jasper blossomed to a healthy 10 pounds, and was sporting twelve pounds six months later. At the same time she developed a very strong opinion of who she liked and disliked. When my husband went away on business, I decided to order a pizza for dinner. Imagine the delivery man’s surprise (and mine, for that matter) when a black blur of a rabbit bolted for the door, lunged at his feet and chased him to the driveway. The poor guy jumped through the open window of his car, begging me to call off my “dog.” “What kind of dog is that?! I’ve never seen ears like that on a dog!” I think I heard his testosterone levels crashing to the asphalt when I told him she was a rabbit. Granted, he didn’t get a very good look at her while he was running away…but he got a hefty tip that night.
