i thought a bunny was a really low-maintenance pet. then i took him to the vet to clip his teeth which he was not successfully gnawing down. the vet (so nice, from no. ireland near where i used to live) gave me a wake up call on that. i'll tell you, you read that www.rabbit.org website once and you'll be having bunny heart attacks daily thinking your bunny is dying. now i know why they have so many babies. their bunny morbidity rate is pretty high.
s'anyway, bunny stopped pooping. this is bad, bad, bad. if bunnies don't poop, they don't eat and if they don't eat for 12 hours THEY DIE INSTANTLY! i'm sayin'.
but, i got bunny to the vet just in the nick of time and i'm shoving medecine down his gullet twice a day and he's much better. hippity hopping around the apartment and backyard again. phew.
i guess, come the fall, i'll bring bun to my classroom, as long as none of the kids are allergic. i'll have to do it on a low-teaching day, like the first week or the day before thanksgiving vacation. because, i could be on fire and those kids wouldn't notice or care when there's a bunny in the class.
i'm going on vaca. to california next week. i've never been to cali. i'm looking forward to it. i'm doing four days in s.f. and then taking a hippie, vegetarian, pot-smoking bus tour down the coast to l.a. i'll see cannery row, the monterey bay aquarium, the hearst castle. there's communal cooking at night and we camp. i've never been camping. i'm a real city slicker so this should be an adventure. i might even smoke some pot. i heard that it's all genetically modified now. i won't eat gmo food, so i doubt i'll smoke gmo weed. i never really smoked anyway, in my sordid youth.
