No, that's not a groundhog. That's the rabbit that stole my heart in 2021. Her name is Butterbean. She doesn't mind at all when I pick her up and snuggle her. She likes sharing strawberries and grapes. She's the answer to all (well most of) my problems. She made 2021 bearable and for that I am grateful. See, that's the thing. The one thing I missed this year, and the year before that. I missed hugs. I missed handshakes. I missed human contact, for Pete's sake!
So my solution was Butterbean, a lop eared, long hair Angora. She's a house pet. She has her own habitat but she also interacts with the family regularly. No free ranging rabbit though. She likes chewing cords too much.
