Today, we celebrate Tokyo Tuxedo’s birthday.
When we got our rabbit at the Rohnert Park Animal Shelter we didn’t know when his actual birthday was. We choose to celebrate his one year being our one and only “Big Bunny Boss” today. We pretend it is his birthday.
He picked us in the visiting room. We lay relaxed on the floor, watching what he would do, would he come out from under the bench.
He picked us. How? He sniffed our arms, legs and faces then he hoped on my belly. Love at first bounce.
This is adopt a shelter pet month in the United States of America. Please know if you have never adopted, you are in for a wonderful surprise. Shelters know the health and personality and needs of the animals they care for.
My first adopted rabbit, Paris lived a truly healthy and extraordinary long 12-years. Never needed a Vet. Neither has Tuxedo.
Please adopt, don’t shop.
This meet my shelter pet came to me as part of the Humane Society of the United States newsletter. I love getting Wayne Pacelle: A Humane Nation blog updates.
