Here’s a late greeting but, Happy New Year! I hope 2011 will be a great year for all of you out there!
This year, we welcome the year of the Rabbit. Coincidentally, both of us are staying together with a pet rabbit, Togo-kun who belongs to our housemate, Akiko-san.
We always look after Togo-kun whenever Akiko-san goes on business trips, feeding him his favorite cabbage, dry fruits and changing his water. Recently, we managed to get closer to Togo-kun and he even allows us to carry him! Apparently, Togo can understand 3 languages!
Here’s some pictures:
It’s our first time living with a pet rabbit and we have since learnt about some special traits of the cute and fluffy animal from Akiko-san.
1.Rabbits don’t like to take a shower.
2.Rabbits have poor eyesight and they usually recognize people based on smell.
3.When Togo is happy, he makes a “fuu..fuu..” sound and the tip of his ears curl a little! (that happens when we carry him sometimes.)
4.Rabbits reproduce really fast, hence Togo doesn’t have a partner.
5.Rabbits are “crepuscular”, meaning they are most active in the twilight hours of both sunrise and sunset.
It’s definitely nice and comforting to have a pet in the house, especially when we get to hug and play with him after a day’s work. He feels like the baby of the family and apparently we are the 3 “okaasans” :).
Have you greeted your pet today?
