We’ve been thinking about it for a while, we’ve wanted something around the apartment for quite a bit and we fell in love…
We’ve thought about cats and kittens, hamsters and gerbils, birds and lizards, even bringing our fish tank (more on that one in the next post). We have our girls (Erika and Dale) but we thought the apartment needed something more…so we got this little guy:
Meet our little Netherlands Dwarf Rabbit…Melissa wanted to name it Peanut and I wanted to name it Chewbacca…so we played with the name from Peanut Chewbacca to Peanut Chewie and then I realized that we could call him Peanut Chew…which is a great candy!
Me with Peanut Chew
Melissa with Peanut Chew
The proud parents.
He’s not going to get much bigger than this…he’s like a hobbit to most rabbits.
He’s no playboy bunny…
So, we took him to the apartment and did his little cage and went straight to my parents house to show them their new grandson and to show Uncle Mathew his new nephew…at first he didn’t seem to notice Peanut, he was more interested in the cage:
Curiosity…sniffed the rabbit?
Is this for me?
So we figured that they should meet…Mathew hadn’t noticed Peanut and Peanut didn’t really react to Mathew…and that was an interesting experience…Mathew was a little scaredy cat and moved back when Peanut went to smell him and Peanut hopped away then curiosity set in and he turned around to go play with Mathew and the little grumpy puss took offense to the little bunny’s presence and hissed three times at him and ran away…Peanut didn’t even know what happened he just hopped around:
The first face to face meeting between Cat and Rabbit.
The first sniffs
“… two species separated by 65 million years of evolution, have suddenly been thrown into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea of what to expect?”
(name the movie this quote came from)
I’m going to eat you!

Mathew starting to not be able to take the prescence of the new rabbit anymore…30 seconds later he would hiss at the little animal…
So, Melissa and I are now parents to a little dwarf rabbit…come by and check out the little guy!
