Waskly Wabbits! Hi! This is Kat, writing a guest post about my trip to Japan in March. One evening during my visit, I was walking down the street to the beach. I was taking pictures as I walked of trees that looked like pineapples, miniature shrines, and a pretty sign. Since I couldn’t really see where I was going with a camera plastered to my face, I almost tripped over a leash. I lowered the camera, thinking I’d see a dog, but to my surprise, it was a tiny rabbit. There were actually 3 adorable tiny rabbits on leashes, being held by an equally adorable girl. Though I spent many years working with wild and exotic animals and as a vet tech, I never once saw a rabbit on a leash. I tried to take a couple pictures, but as luck would have it, my camera chose that moment to freak out and take black pictures. Since I couldn’t communicate a whole lot with the girl, I felt a little silly continuing to take pictures. Before she began forming a scary impression of crazy foreigners with cameras, I decided it would be best if I went on my way, so I smiled and thanked her profusely (my Japanese being what it is, I should say I HOPE I thanked her profusely…and didn’t accidently say something like “I love hossenfeffer!”…). Alas, I have no actual picture, but I retain the cute picture in my mind 🙂 BTW, the rabbit (Herman) pictured here has absolutely nothing to do with this post (aside from being a rabbit), but he sure is unbelievably adorable, eh?
