Ann and Friends - Bon-Bon
Mom has had Bon-Bon for several weeks. A friend begged Mom to take her. The friend's children did not play with or care for Bon-Bon very much. So Mom's friend gave her to us. The children were against Bon-Bon's move to a new home. Mom didn't want more animals. She thought we had too many pets already. But she couldn't say no to her good friend. So Bon-Bon is our first pet rabbit.
Bon-Bon is a French Lop. A Lop is a rabbit. A Lop's ears flop down instead of standing straight up like the rabbits we know best. A Lop's ears drag on the ground. Bon-Bon is very cute and cuddly. She has a satiny black coat with white spots. She has a tiny pink nose. She loves bananas. You better not get in her way when she sees a banana. She could knock you down to get to that banana first.
Bon-Bon is such a smart bunny. She can go potty in a litter box like a cat. Her litter box is kept in the bathroom.
One morning Dad stepped in Bon-Bon's poop and urine after getting out of bed to use the bathroom himself. He was barefooted. Dad never wore slippers. I guess Bon-Bon didn't make it to the litter box. Dad was quite mad. Mom laughed until her sides ached and she couldn't catch her breath.
Bon-Bon is a free spirit. Bon-Bon doesn't live in a cage like most rabbits. Some people thought Bon-Bon must have a cage. We thought Bon-Bon should be free. She roams free all the time at home. Bon-Bon roams every place in our house and outside, too. Sometimes she hops up our alley. Sometimes Bon-Bon hops, hops, hops up or down Skyline Blvd. Everyone knows Bon-Bon. They think she is a remarkable rabbit.
Neighbors call Mom. They say, "Bon-Bon is at my back door."
Mom says, "Don't worry. Bon-Bon knows the way home. Bon-Bon will hop back home soon." Everyone in our neighborhood loves Bon-Bon. People smile when they see Bon-Bon in our neighborhood. I bet she wants a tasty snack from all her friends. She also loves bathing in the sun in Mom's petunias. Bon-Bon never gets enough sun and fresh air. I wonder what Bon-Bon will do next.
