Cookie – Surprised

Cookie

I don’t think she was expecting the sound of the camera’s shutter.

This, my friends, is Cookie. I’ve had her since June, and I’ve taken plenty of pictures of her since then.

Seriously, I’ve had to resist posting some on social media because I don’t want to become “that person.”

But my social media picture-posting habits don’t matter at the moment. What does matter is that Cookie’s usually fine with the picture-taking. She ignores the sound of the camera shutter, usually only getting upset if the flash goes off.

I mean, check out how relaxed she is in this photo, taken in early December:

I was fairly close to her, and she didn’t even flinch. She just stared at me, probably wondering why I had interrupted her chill-out time.

So seeing how much she had been caught off-guard in that first photo made me wonder what had been so different. Had I been closer to her that time? Had she not noticed the camera before I snapped the picture? Or had she just been upset that I had taken her attention away from her new treat ball?

I’m not sure I’ll ever really know.

  1. She’s so cute!! I vote for a once monthly blog feature of cute Cookie pics. =) I’d like to have a bunny someday, but know next to nothing about caring for them. I sometimes watered and fed a friend’s rabbit when they were away, and it always tried to nip me. But it was kept outside, and not the happiest of bunnies, I do believe.

    1. I’ll definitely have to consider that! Cookie will nip sometimes, too, but usually only when I’m in her way or if I startle her. In terms of care, I consider rabbits to be sort of a cross between a cat and a dog. Cleaning litter, supplying hay, and a daily feeding of each pellets and veggies are the biggest things to remember; other than that, it’s making sure they get enough exercise and love. Many rabbits don’t like to cuddle, but they all want to feel like part of the family–they want a companion of some sort, whether it’s a person or another animal.
