meet isadora

This is Isadora Quagmire.
She's an angora rabbit who generally has free run of our house.
If you feel that she looks more like an alien water-buffalo than a rabbit, it's just because it's nearing time for her quarterly haircut (I don't mean to imply that she looks any less strange after a visit to Petula's Lagomorph Salon, it's just that she no longer bears a resemblance to any sort of buffalo).
Angora rabbits are a lot of work, and I wouldn't recommend getting one unless you're really willing to devote a fair amount of time to their upkeep. The upside of having an angora rabbit hopping around one's home (beyond their generous donations of knitalicious fiber) is that they're bound to make you laugh every time they enter the room.
Plus, since angoras are bred to have really gentle, mellow dispositions, they really do make good snugglebunnies (FYI - it's important to always say "snugglebunnies" with that annoying baby-talk voice that grates across every nerve of those within earshot).

I had an angora when I was a child. I loved her. We used to vacuume her in the summer. So cute! She was an indoor kitty, too.

But wait, what about Greg? Didn't you have a Greg the bunny, too?

Whoops! After reading your comment I was driven to remedy the missing bunny situation with today's post. And, yes, he was Greg the Bunny for a while, but for some reason he just never seemed like a "Greg". We finally just opened up one of our art history books to a random page and chose a name. We chose William Morris and took it as a good sign that it happened to be his birthday that day.
