A New Baby
Over the weekend, Katie brought home the newest member of our family—a baby mini Lion Head bunny. She named her "Lion," but I am opting to give her a more feminine name and calling her "Lyla"—Lyla Lion has a nice ring to it, don't you think? Katie has been working on us to let her have a pet bunny ever since she found out they would be doing a section on rabbit care in her Animal Science class about a month ago. We used to have two Mini Lops (who have since passed on to Bunny Heaven), and I wasn't sure if I wanted to start with the whole "nagging to clean the cage" thing again. But she insisted she would do a better job this time around and I—being the huge animal lover that I am—eventually broke down and agreed to adopt yet another hairy friend (it wasn't that hard! LOL).
Katie picked her out on Friday and will bring her home for the weekends, but she'll have to go back to school during the week as her ongoing class project. The first time I got to see and hold Lyla, I fell totally in love with her. She has such a sweet personality and feels so tiny and delicate in your hands. She's like one of those soft, fluffy puffs you use for patting on powder—only with eyes and ears added on. Honestly, how could anyone resist this adorable face?!?! *Ü*
