I’ve had this idea for a long time…a sleeping bunny in a crouching position…with those bulgy baby eyes that they have before they ever open.

I once hand raised a baby bunny my cat brought to the doorstep, whose eyes had not yet opened. The vet said to wipe his belly every hour to make him pee, the way his mother would do…around the clock. And I did…all night, every hour. His eyes eventually opened, he grew bigger and stronger…then one day, after his first time out in the grass, he died. My Dad buried him in the woods, crying as he dug the hole. Wow…this is getting really depressing!

Thankfully, none of that will never be a worry with Clementine:
