Many of you know that I love pets. I really do, I actually grew up with lots of them. Dogs, cats, rabbits…and even horses. There’s nothing better than feeling a little blue, then being able to cuddle up next to a furry animal.
The very first Valentine’s Day Derik and I had together, he bought me a soft, fuzzy little bunny. We named him Ted. He was a great little rabbit, learned the litter box quickly, and ended up being quite the character. Unfortunately I had to find a temporary home for him while I was in South Korea, and the stress of traveling didn’t do so well with him.
Rabbits, much like most small animals, are very fragile. If they don’t eat or drink for a day it can be life threatening. I’ve waited a few weeks to introduce our ‘new’ little furry creature…just to make sure she would adapt ok. She has, and has also turned out to have quite the personality herself!
This is Jasmine, we call her Jazz for short. I’ve been wanting a pet since we’ve been her in Korea, and a rabbit just seemed like the logical sense. She’s low maintenance, cheap, and is great indoors.
One weekend (around Sept 17th I believe) my good friend Harriet and I went on a quest to Tongyeong to find an adorable little rabbit. We had heard that Lotte World may have some furry creatures…so we decided to check it out. Or rather, I did, and Harriet was gracious enough to offer to come along.
As pictured above, we met Jazz and her other quite fuzzy companion at Lotte World. They were both just chillin in their cage with not a care in the world. Jazz stood out to me in the few minutes we were hanging out in the pet department, and before we knew it, we were on our way home.
We noticed after a few days Jazz was getting quite comfortable. It became apparent we didn’t have a ‘normal’ bunny on our hands (if that’s even possible). Not only does she have a strange obsession with having her feet ‘up’, but she’s a climber/jumper. I’ve often found her on top of my yoga mat, rolled up in the corner of the room resting against the couch. That’s a good three feet up! She’s also been quite the houdini, somehow jumping/climbing vertically out of the top of her cage, and jumping over a three and a half foot barrier to sit behind the air conditioning unit. By no means is this one boring.
Well, we love her and hope she stays happy and healthy for many months/years ahead! Im sure you’ll hear more about her one of these days.
