Nara’s apartment has a bunny on the top floor garden!! One day he had gone up to make a phone call and sat down on the ledge of the small grass/bush area his apartment has on one of the higher floors, it is always pretty empty up there and nobody really uses it except to smoke or dry clothing. From the corner of his eye he saw the bushes start to rustle like crazy and jumped back when a cute little bunny popped out and hopped right over to him!!
He was a bit surprised at first since it is an apartment garden so no animals can obviously get up that high, someone must have bought the bunny as a pet and had to let it loose when it got too big…so naturally they picked this spot so he could be safe and they could visit him.
He called me to come to the 10th floor quickly to see, I did not believe him at first and thought he was going to play a trick on me! haha! He told me the bunny is actually very friendly, so to call out and he would come~ We stood by the bushes for a few minutes and finally he zipped out and came right next to us! We brought a bit of celery for him and he hopped right over to eat it and let us pet him. What an interesting surprise~

Nara has always wanted a pet bunny, but I will not allow it due to the mess and the fact we have cats… it is just a bit too much for me. Here in Korea they sometimes sell baby bunnies on the street (or other baby animals the owner/farmer is trying to get rid of quickly) and a month or two ago an old woman had been selling a bunch of babies that we had stopped to pet every time we saw her. While flipping through photos one day Nara realized that this bunny was from the old same lady!! We actually have this bunny in one of our phone snapshots……
Check this out! Cellphone snap from a month earlier~ It is the same bunny!! Same marking on the back, same eyes, and same ears! Since the Grandmother was selling these walking distance away it just has to be the same little guy ♥ how funny!
Now when we are upstairs we go and visit the bunny, we call him “Marshmallow” or just “Toki” which means “Bunny” in Korean~ he has been thriving upstairs for over a year through all the seasons! He likes to play tag a lot, you can run around and chase him, then he chases you~ it is is super cute.
The cleaning ladies and security guards really like the bunny as well, so they often leave food out and take him out of the garden when they have to spray for insects~ I think this bunny really lucked out to be honest! Lately he has been making so many burrows around the garden though, I wonder if he is getting lonely being the only thing in that whole garden. Part of me wants him to have a friend… but the other part of me does not want them to start making 100 babies because they would quickly run out of room in the garden. *_*
