Patch is by far the funniest rabbit I have ever had. He has an incredible curiosity and fearlessness that makes him just irresistible. We call him our intrepid explorer because every time he goes into a new room or place, he has to "explore" every nook and cranny of it. Get on top of everything, get under everything... It's really entertaining to watch. The best thing about his is that he is a half-lop. One ear up, one ear down. It's very endearing.
Yesterday I was downstairs studying and I heard a huge crash come from upstairs. I ran up to see what happened, thinking Chloe had got into something, but no, Patch had gotten up on top of the vanity table in the guest bedroom and knocked a bunch of stuff off. Don't ask me why he went up there, I have no idea!
Now, Patch is not an official member of the Zoo. We are currently his foster parents as he is on loan to us from the New York House Rabbit Society. Patch is with us while he is "dating" Pumpkin. They have been dating for a couple weeks now and things are going pretty well. They are getting along better now, but Pumpkin is still the more aggressive one. After running around in the dining room for a while yesterday afternoon, Pumpkin and Patch spend the rest of their day in their respective cages side by side...staring at each other... We're really hoping Patch will stay, but we'll have to wait and see.
Here are some pictures of the little guy...

Looking out the window... it's a big world out there!
Flopped over. It's hard being a rabbit.
