Frivolous Fridays are the Orbit bloggers’ excuse to post about fun things we care about that may not have serious implications for atheism or social justice. Any day is a good day to write about whatever the heck we’re interested in (hey, we put “culture” in our tagline for a reason), but we sometimes have a hard time giving ourselves permission to do that. This is our way of encouraging each other to take a break from serious topics and have some fun. Enjoy!
Last week I introduced my floofy cat, Tegan. This week, at Niki’s request, I want to introduce you to Spouse’s giant bunny, Patrick!
Patrick is a New Zealand White rabbit, a breed actually created in the USA despite the name. They are extremely commonly used in laboratory testing, which is actually where Patrick came from. He was bread for lab testing, but was too small at 12 weeks to be sold to a lab, so we adopted him. His size caught up fast, and now he’s our sweet big smart bunny.
Patrick gets along well with cats (cat in this video was one Spouse was catsitting) and enjoys chewing on really bad psychology textbooks.
