Not everyone can have a pet of their own, so it sure is nice when friends are willing to share their animals from time to time. Read this story about a couple of fluffy bunnies and a boy who loves to spend time with them.

Sometimes I spend the afternoon down the street with Ms. Wood. She has two pet bunnies, named Flopsy and Mopsy, just like Peter Rabbit’s sisters! 

They usually live in their hutch outside, but when I come over, Ms. Wood takes them inside. 

They are called lop-eared rabbits because of their floppy ears. 

First, they hop around the house, exploring and sniffing. Mopsy likes to jump into things. Flopsy hides for a while, but she always comes back out. 

Next, I give them some kale, which is their favorite food. 

Flopsy eats fast, and the big leaf disappears like a magic trick! Mopsy eats slower, but she finishes every bit. 

Then Ms. Wood gives me the special bunny blanket. 

“Here, Flopsy. Here, Mopsy!” I call quietly. I have to be patient. 

It’s worth it when first Mopsy, then Flopsy hop up and settle down on my lap. I like watching their noses twitch. Their fur is the softest thing in the whole wide world. I smile as I pet them gently.
