A Moment in a Safari- My Rabbit and I
Today I have learnt something very important from my rabbit which is, "pay attention to me". Lately, I have been very busy submitting my information to get into POST Academy program in May and Vocational Nursing Program somewhere in June. Calculating my tuition cost, student loans, and thinking if I could afford it was what I have been thinking lately. Another thing is, I don't want to waste my time when there are great opportunity for me especially I have a gap of unemployed. And in that gap I want to fulfill it with education; starting young is better than starting old.
Well, since I was to busy thinking too much about myself, I forgot about spending time with my rabbit. Ignoring her; she circle around me...which mean please play with me. She stand on her hinds looking at me but I walked away. She followed me and sat on my foot. I told her, "Baby, I'm busy...go play with your toy" and she didn't listen to me. Ignoring her again, I sat down on my bed organizing my portfolio, my rabbit was very angry...she jumped on my bed and start digging into my shirt and bit me. I yelled, "ow, why you do that for?" I put her back down and ignore her again. She jump back up and continue digging. She pulled the sleeve to my shirt with her mouth swinging her head side to side trying to get my attention. I notice something but I continue ignoring her and she bite me again.
For some reason, she just want to put up a fight with me.
I than started to scratch her head, petting her, pick her up and used a few moment of my time taking her into a safari. Play with her for a while and when I let her go, she sprint across the room, flick in the air and jumping up and down the sofa. About an hour of fun, she was so exhausted, and fell asleep.
With this experienced I realize my rabbit was telling me I'm being 'selfish, not being the best owner as I should have been, and she needs attention'. Therefore, paying attention to your pet body language is most important!
