In the tradition of Auckland weather, it’s been switching between heavy rain and blue skies like nobody’s business. Here is a picture of Tofu the bunny enjoying the sun. I thought that a green fascinator would be quite dapper and festive. As sunny as it was, the grass was still damp so you can see the tips of his floppy ears are wet through. No doubt his paws were wet too. Tofu doesn’t mind the wet. Is that normal?

When I saw the photo my first thought was ‘garnish’ – but fascinator’s much nicer! As always, love seeing a new Tofu pic 🙂
Oh no! That’s not a garnish! I better not tell Tofu what you said…
Our Tofu is intrepid. I think Kiwi bunnies need to be!!
He is. Perhaps he needs some gumboots.
Tofu was like a little ray of sunshine on my newsfeed this morning. Flatpac hates the wet.. even a bit of spillage out of the water bowl causes mass panic.
…have you ever had to bath Flatpac?
So darn adorable. I would just love to scoop him up, wet ear tips and paws and all! My bunny was really more of a downtown condo bunny; she did get out into the back yard but not very often (we have predators). She liked digging, but would often shake off her paws. I would suspect that wet paws would not be a favourite thing.
Dustie never had her ears weighted down, so even though she was a lop, she had the uncanny ability to lift her ears up and often had them in “airplane ears” mode, which was so adorable. Does Tofu run around making a nose that sounds like “mum, mum, mum”? Dustie used to do that, so cute! I’ll email you a pic of the Dust-Buster shortly.
Awww, airplane ears! We call them helicopter ears and I can’t take any bunny seriously with helicopter ears. I look forward to seeing the Dust-Buster.
Tofu makes a buzzing noise when he’s feeling particularly amorous and wants attention. It sounds a bit like a phone set on vibrate. Is that the sound you’re meaning? It’s usually followed by a cuddle and patting session.
Helicopter ears are a good description too; we opted for airplane ears as JT’s Dad had a small float plane, so we were an airplane family.
I suppose that is the sound that Dustie made, it’s like a low humming sound from the back of the throat. We used to joke that she was saying “mum, mum, mum” because she loved me so much. 😉
Awww that’s so sweet. Yes, it sounds like the same noise. It’s the happiest noise a bunny can make.
