Floppy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Rabbit

Adopted from Missouri House Rabbit Society, Greenwood, MO.

I told myself it was a terrible idea. He wasn't the kind you'd bring home to Mother. He was homeless, and had been for an unknown period of time - long enough that he was scary thin. His front teeth were in terrible shape, crooked and totally out of alignment.

But those eyes! Brad Pitt and Robert Pattinson had nothing on this guy. One look at his profile photo and I knew we had to meet.

The web site where I first saw him was Petfinder, and he was a lop-eared bunny his foster family called "Floppy."

No one who knows me would say I'm romantic. I'm the friend you call when you need straight talk and the stars washed out of your eyes. But this was the real deal - Love At First Sight. We both felt it. I sat on the floor of his pen and he lay down beside me as though we'd been together for years.
