Last Sunday, I decided to start a weekly post where I would write about one thing I'm thankful for. It's quite appropriate this particular weekend too, since it's Canadian Thanksgiving! So today, I'm thankful for Mikey!
Our bunny Mikey has been with me and Mr. Potatohead for around 5 years now. He was actually given to us from a friend who had two brother bunnies, Mikey and Marcus. I remember Marcus was an adorable dust-bunny grey, while Mikey looked like a COW with his white and brown speckled fur. I have to admit, I didn't like Mikey all that much in the beginning. He bullied his brother Marcus and would always try to bite him. But when Marcus died suddenly from choking on a fur-ball, Mikey became our lone bunny for awhile. I learned to appreciate him and his stubborn little personality.
Later on, we went to the SPCA and adopted another little bunny with straight pointy ears and coffee-brown fur. Her name was Mia and she was Mikey's new companion for awhile. But unfortunately, I think Mia had been traumatized by something before and she was always skittish and very afraid. A few years later, she also passed away from sickness and possibly stress, because she was such a weak little bunny. When Mia died, Mikey was standing next to her limp body trying to nudge her awake and he was hopping around wondering why she was on the ground.
In the end, Mr. Potatohead and I both realized that Mikey was just the strongest bunny of the bunch, and he seems content living on his own. Nowadays, he's quite the spoiled obese one, with a cage the size of a dog-pen and plenty of pellets, treats, and fresh vegetables to consume. I wanted to feature good ol' Mikey because he deserves a bit of credit for being such a resilient lardball of a bunny. So... here are some pictures of the little bugger. Enjoy! :)
