|Cute, cute, cute.....

I didn't mention this before, what with everything else that was going on, but we acquired a rabbit and a guinea pig last week. Joe had been talking about getting a snake or a rottweiler and I figured we should head him off at the pass.
I was thinking small animals would be low maintenance. I was wrong.
The rabbit is Toshiro Mifunny the Bunny (aka Fluffbucket) and the guineapig is Mulan
Welcome to the world of pets!
The children had a dog who ate everything in Kate's bedroom; a bird, who flew to the Christmas tree and then to the piano bench, where it was immediately eaten by the surprised cat; a gerbil that cost almost nothing, who lived in an elaborate house that cost over $100; white mice; turtles from the woods (hidden in the closet); wild mouse babies (hidden in an old aquarium in the closet by Kate because her callous mom had killed the babies' mother)...
Your rabbit is very cute. We had one of those, too. And a guinea pig, which we rarely saw because it would bury itself in cedar shavings.
We've had gerbils- they shred anything you put in their cage- and budgerigars and, of course, cats.
I had a rabbit when I was a kid, but it lived in a hutch in the garden and had little scope to be entertaining- poor thing- so eventually we gave it away. This one is huge fun. The guinea pig, like yours, stays in bed most of the time.
Your rabbit really is cute.
Ours was in a hutch until we decided it was unhappy and trapped, so we gave it a big yard with wire fencing. The first night it hopped and hopped and hopped.
I like it that yours is free in the house. Lucky rabbit.
You might want to wear shoes...
And watch very carefully, not just for the reason you hint at, but because he's so unafraid and likes to snuffle round our shoes. This morning I very nearly trod on him.
I am charmed by the idea of your rabbit snuffling around your shoes.
You are a good person, Tony. Through and through.

Those are rabbit droppings, above.
But, alas, I know myself too well......
