What's up Doc?

Jan 2003

After many weeks of nagging I finallly caved in and we bought a pet rabbit. She’s four months old now and a nice caramel color with floppy ears. Pets are extremely expensive here, which is one of the reasons why I didn’t want to buy one (the other is our landlord doesn’t allow them! So shhhh). A lot of Pet stores only stock pure-bred cats and dogs; some of which go for a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. I saw a french bulldog going close to AU$6,000! I even found a cockatoo and rosella at one of the other stores. Ferrets are also quite popular, although their tiny human-like hands give me the chills.

Everything was going great with the rabbit. Even I was getting into the whole pet thing. Until it bit through Uzuki’s mobile phone recharger cord and it urinated on my arm while I was asleep on the couch. Oh well.
