(Bunny) Life Imitates Art











On my trips to Vermont I fell in love with local folk artist Warren Kimble's rabbit paintings, since those fat white bunnies look so much like my own little fatso here at home!

The above print is in Tidbit's feeding corner, so she can be reminded of her overfed condition and reflect on how much better she has things here than when I found her at the shelter a few years ago, a bony little thing weighing only four pounds!

And here's the perp today:


















Looking well-fed and innocent, as usual.

See the resemblance?

Awww, cute bunny. And she does have that, "What, me?" look about her. She never does anything wrong, correct?

Is Warren Kimble any relation to Vermont's Christopher Kimble, of America's Test Kitchen fame?

I've never been to Vermont but hear it's beautiful.

Very cool art, I love stuff like that--and yeah, there is a bit of a resemblance!

Adorable! Perhaps you could remind you little bunny that fat rabbits sometimes end up in the stew-pot! The horror of that suggestion may be an incentive to lose some poundage... It would maybe work for the Bag Lady, too...she could feed a small nation of cannibals! (New year's resolution, again!)

As a (slow) runner and bunny person, I've been enjoying your blog. We used to have that same picture! In college I had the chutspa to install a rabbit in my boyfriend's house, and ever since we've both been "Bun". (Aww...) He's forgiven the introduction of cats, children (ha ha), and lately a guinea pig, but we'll always been bunny people!

SQUEE!!!!!! (yup, overcome by sheer Cuteness again!) Tidbit is adorable! And the bunny art is cute, too. Indeed, I do see a resemblance! :-D

You know, it strikes me that Tid and I have a lot in common! We are both white, we are both spoiled, well-loved, well-fed, and mmmm, Rubenesque! *giggle*

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!
