Chapter 8: Sweet Sandra Applebelly

Hi it’s me Sandra.

All day today Bibi called me Sweet Sandra Applebelly. It’s because I ate something that I found on her side of our porch.

Yesterday she forgot to put the divider there so I explored a little. I found whole bag of just perfect apples. I got myself one out of the bag.  A whole bag of apples and all night in front of me!

I will tell you the fruits I like: apples, pears, bananas, mango and raspberries. I am only supposed to have one tablespoon of any of these a day though. It’s because there’s too too much sugar in them and one tablespoon is all I can get.  It’s not good for our bunny bellies but we will eat it anyway if you leave it there for us. Only supposed to have one tablespoon.

But I didn’t remember that when I found a whole bag of apples.  This is what Bibi saw when she woke up.

She said  Sandra Applebelly That’s what you are you ate more than a half of an apple

I felt fine and I didn’t care.  Look how many little bites I took from that apple.

I never ever took any food that wasn’t mine ever.

I know cats and dogs always take food that is not theirs. They bug people when people eat something they like. I only do that if Bibi is eating banana. Then I will jump up on her until she gives me some. I don’t go through the garbage.  This was the first time I ever found any food I like just sitting there.

Mice also take food that is not theirs. We had mice once and they even took my food. They took one pellet at a time and they took it and hid it somewhere.  Bibi found the nest where they put all my pellets. I don’t know why they didn’t just eat them up.  Maybe they were saving them for their mouse babies who don’t know how to steal their own food yet.  I didn’t care, they can have my pellets if they’re so hungry.

One thing I do not understand. If rabbits are only supposed to have one tablespoon anytime we eat apples, what about all the outdoor bunnies when they play in the apple orchard? Don’t they eat as much as they want?

If you can figure this out please write to me. Are their bunny bellies different than mine?

This is what I think: I think maybe these people just made it up about the tablespoon and really it’s OK for us to have as many apples as we want. Here are the apple twigs and branches Bibi brought to my porch so I always have some yummy wood to chew on. I even eat the leaves when they’re all dried up and crunchy.

Does anybody care how many apples mice eat?

No, ONLY indoor bunnies have to think about too many apples.

Anyway, today my name is Sweet Sandra Applebelly and I hope you like my story and I hope you can eat as many apples as you want.

Love,

Sweet Sandra Applebelly / aka Sandra Free Range Super Bunny
