White Rabbit

I am joining in with a game this week over at The Reading Residence called ‘The Theme Game’ whereby the rules are, each week there is a prompt and we have to interpret it and write a post about it. And as it’s a game there is a winner, and a second and third place up for grabs which I have to say sounds fun!

This weeks prompt was ‘White’. I’ve only just thought about joining in this week so I haven’t had any time at all to really think about it and come up with something inspired so I’m not expecting to win but I want to join in regardless!

The first thing that came into my mind when I saw that it was ‘white’ was our lovely little pet white rabbit, probably spurred on by the mention of a quote by Jocelyn from Alice in Wonderland that the White Rabbit makes :)

Our rabbit is such a cutie, this is him in the pet shop where we bought him from. I was looking for a present for my daughter’s birthday and originally we wanted guinea pigs, but as soon as I clapped eyes on this little darling I knew my girl would fall in love with him.

He was the only white rabbit in the shop. In fact we go there regularly and very rarely see white ones so I’m assuming they’re not as common as the brown and black ones. In the wild they’re not believed to survive as long because their white coat makes them highly visible and easy prey. Poor little loves.

This is the moment my girl met her beloved white rabbit.

Just look at him! He was so tiny.

White rabbits usually have red eyes, these are albino and I think they look a bit freaky to be honest, I don’t like them, but his are blue. To have a bright white rabbit with blue eyes is special :)

He’s a lot bigger now. This was him in the garden the other day, he lives in our home with us but we let him out to play sometimes.

I love the way his gorgeous pure white fur contrasts against the dark green grass.

There’s something magical about white rabbits too, literally, as they’re the rabbit of choice for magicians at kids party’s – the ones that get pulled out of a hat! Couldn’t imagine ours sitting still long enough for something like that, he’s much too lively!!

So there you have it. My post about WHITE!
