The Rabbits

Yes, this is a knitting magazine, but sometimes you need to take a moment, put down your needles and rub the bunny.

This is the editor's bunny. She was the most adorable, loving, softest rabbit on earth. She was litter trained, came when called and gave kisses.

And a few months after her 11th birthday, her body wore out and she left us. But her joyous spirit lives on. I really miss her.

Meet the spayed sisters: Boeing [6+lbs] and Squeeze [4lbs]. Boeing doesn't give kisses; Squeeze does. Boeing occasionally enjoys being held and cuddled; Squeeze will rip your lips off if you try.

Watching them take care of each other is a pleasure I'd only imagined. They are immaculately clean, because they're always grooming each other. Like sisters, sometimes they cuddle, sometimes they can't be far enough away from each other. Who needs tv?

If you want to adopt a bunny, visit the House Rabbit Society and find a local chapter in your area. They always have beautiful rabbits in foster care that need permanent, loving homes.

Oh, and if you adopt an angora, you can knit a sweater from your bunny's cast-off fur! There's an article in that, isn't there?
