Rabbit Reads: Antidote to the modern world

Rabbit Girl tells, in brief, the tale of her adopted rabbits Snowman and Amelia at Rabbit Reads: Antidote to the modern world. Snowman is no more, but the last part of his life was happy and along with some nice photos of his post-adoption life, there is a most charming picture of Amelia perched in a bookcase.
Rabbits are often inexorably drawn to bookcases, whether for the books, or for the interesting perching possibilities.
One of these days I would like to build Orion and Calypso Spots a fine play structure with several levels and areas to sit on and sit under. I'm afraid this project has been in the works for several years and not gotten anywhere yet, though. Whenever I go to a pet store and see the cat structures, I am quite jealous. But it does seems as though it would be relatively cheap and easy to build something appropriate to rabbits out of a selection of boards and with some fabric or carpet scraps stapled on.

Thinking about Snowman still causes me pain, perhaps more so than any other rabbit that we have lost. It's wonderful that people know his story.

I too look at the cat jungle gyms with envy. They are very well suited for the intrepid rabbit -which Orion looks to be from the pictures that I have seen.

It's hard to let go of certain rabbits. In some cases, it's not quite even so much the rabbit as some aspect of the situation that we wish could have been different.

Orion does seem the intrepid type. So was Ms. Spots in her youth, which, it must be admitted, is past. But she is still very lively and youthful.
