Rabbit, but my vet says I must be a “Belgian Hare” because my ears are so big.
My Human Partner:
I’ve been an HOV Volunteer since:
My interests, hobbies and talents:
I am really a very quiet bunny. I'm conditioned, as is any bunny, to eat my hay at dawn and again at dusk since predator animals are less likely to see me then. In between I mostly sleep, hang out with my two dog siblings and groom them, or just sit together with them quietly. I like their company. At bedtime I let my human companion know I am ready for a snack of apple, parsley and banana chips. It's a wonderful life!
My work at HOV:
My life is never dull. I go to work twice a week. I go to Gardiner Home once a week and sit quietly on laps or beds and get petted by the Hospice of the Valley patients who stay there. The people are mostly quiet, but I feel their joy. Another day I go to Ryan House where I snuggle with the children in their chairs or beds. Sometimes I even tickle their noses with my whiskers. This makes the children giggle! I also visit the second floor at Ryan House where adults stay. I think I bring comfort to the patients and families I meet there.
I love being petted! People say “she's so soft,” but their hands are very warm and smooth when they pet me. It feels good to me, too!
