I haven’t posted as planned this week thanks to a cluster of migraines. It’s been miserable. Somehow I got through the work days, but by 5:00 I felt like total and utter crap. I kept up with my eating, and I promise a post tomorrow on how it’s going. Spoiler alert: salad city.
Instead of food, I have some exciting news to share: there’s a new vegetarian in our house!
Meet the newest member of our Hollywood home. Poppy is a 6-year-old mini lop. Her previous owners have to move out of the state next week, so they reluctantly sought a new home from her. Lynn put out a plea on her blog, and I instantly fell in love. We’ve been sadly without a pet since Sully’s death (in 2011), and though we’re not technically supposed to have one (shh! Don’t tell our building manager), we knew we couldn’t say no to her fluffy tail and wiggly nose. She’s been ours for less than 24 hours, but we already adore her. This morning, we had breakfast together:
We both had our greens. Mine was a smoothie, and hers were beet greens. In anticipation of her adoption, I’ve been saving the ends of carrots, stems of cauliflower, and greens from veggies in a baggy in the fridge for her. Rabbits need lots of vegetables (about four cups a day, according to my research), as well as unlimited hay, some pellets, and a smidge of fruit as a treat. She loves bananas.
Expect more Poppy pictures in the near future. She’s a member of the family now!
