Shadow bunny has the finest tuned rabbit radar when it comes to head pets. It’s a given that if you start to pet Tigger, no matter where he might be in the house, Shadow will show up in less than a minute.
He is so down with the idea of being petted, he is literally down and in position and waiting with that me too look in his eyes. Who can resist? Unlike Tigger once Shadow is down for the head petting, he is down and you had better be prepared for a session.
That is okay, petting a rabbit is just so wonderful. The fur has such a wonderful feel, the tooth purring is such a nice thankful feedback. It is a good time to just mellow out and enjoy each others company. We usually lay down on the floor beside him and just chill with the bunny.
Mr. Shadow loves to be stroked up his nose, around his cheeks. There is a spot in front of his ears that you can tell is an ahhh spot. If you stray off his head back towards his shoulders, you will get a little head bumping up into your hand as a reminder to focus. This is a head petting session!
Shadow is up for having his little head petted multiple times a day. So we can repeat the process whenever we want the stress of the day to flow away. Who says the head pets benefit only the bunny!
