Bella’s Mommy comes to visit all the time. Sometimes she cries and wants to take Bella back to her house. She says Bella doesn’t even know she is her mommy anymore. She cries very loud. She says Why is Bella always at Bibi’s house It’s like she was kidnapped I want her to come home.
Bella’s mommy is only 4 years old. I am 5 years old.
We didn’t kidnap Bella. We only wanted her to stay with us because bunnies are so much happier together and we don’t want her to live in a dirty too too small cage all alone on her freezing porch because we are here and we love her and we need her.
When she cries like that Bella’s mommy’s mommy says Bella will stay with Sandra for the winter It’s too cold on the porch in wintertime and Bella can’t be in your room She will poop everywhere and she will chew everything We can bring her back in the springtime.
Sometimes we feel bad that Bella’s mommy gets her mommy angry when she cries about Bella being at our house. Her mommy says We talked about this Bella is staying with Bibi and Sandra for now. It’s like she’s not allowed to miss Bella and want her back. She doesn’t understand it’s so much better for Bella to live with us. They even have a dog now. That’s why they moved her cage onto the porch. No good for Bella.
I hope they never come and take Bella back ever. She is the only rabbit friend I ever had. Everyone else I know is a person or a cat. I can’t play with them the same way. We do every single thing together. 100 times a day we say smell each other’s noses. We play chasing games and we chew on big willow branches until there is no bark anymore. We eat the same things at the same time. I used to just eat alone, every single thing.
Bella is still teaching me how to eat more things. I never would eat a radish before. And I never would eat celery. Now I even eat endive. Just because Bella does.
There is no single thing Bella does not like except alfalfa sprouts Bibi tried to give us.
Bella’s mommy says Bella eats everything even eggs. Eggs are from birds. I don’t think we are supposed to eat them.
She sometimes leaves a few leaves or pellets for later. She did not used to do that. She always ate every single thing so fast like there was never going to be any more food. She even ate the hay like she had to hurry so much. Now because she has lived with us since before wintertime she knows we always get breakfast salad, dinner salad and pellets two times and fruit and rabbit cookie treats. And we will never run out of timothy hay.
Bella is very scared and shy and she won’t let Bibi pick her up or cut her nails. She does like to be pet on the head though. Most of the time we are right next to each other so Bibi can pet us both with one hand.
Bella knows she is safe here with us. I want our family to be me and Bibi and Bella.
