Year of the Golden Rabbit Mail Art Call


Year of the Golden Rabbit Mail Art Call

I was born in the last year of the golden rabbit (5 cycles ago) so this will be my second.  In honor of that, and because I love rabbit-themed art, I am hosting a year-long Year of the Golden Rabbit mail art call.

Rabbit Nero does not easily accept strangers in his environment but lucky me! I am not one of them

Nero sprinkled Buzz in the garden 2day, so he is definitely male and he must think that Buzz is another rabbit instead of a male cat. I had already had a weird dream of one of the 3 giving birth and the new babies were a mixture of rabbit and cat creatures. Maybe I’ll paint that one day... They were many and all were jumping around in the flat and on the bed and on the table and on the laptop and HELP! and then I woke up of course.

Some minor frictions in my household: Tarantino found a new sleeping place: in my wardrobe between my clothes BUT he does not allow Buzz in.

GGG GGGG you know how cats act in a defensive mood!

Rabbit Nero saw the door open and went into the wardrobe.

Reaction of T; oh, it is you, no problemo, come on in.

So Buzz became Xtra frustrated. So I had to explain to Nero that this was really a bad idea, joining T. He seemed to understand and left T on his own, to the relief of Buzz. Then I had to explain to Buzz he has to stop jumping on the back of T all the time with nails and teeth. Buzz was his usual self. I donna understand Flemish at all ...and then sought refuge in my armpit..

Nero stretching in the garden, he likes to imitate the cats and sometimes that is a bad idea, like jumping on my legs or on the sofa and then on my chest! Or trying to force the cellar door like kitten Buzz does. I started dreaming about rabbits, Carla, so the rascal is growing on me. I had a funny conversation last evening with some little children who live in the house next to: Hey Mister, tell me the story of the bunny, how come he lives in your garden and house, how come he gets along with the cats, how come .... Try to sleep in one bed with 3 animals I told them. The smallest girl (3 or 4 perhaps?) started thinking. She has a small dog (like the dog of Tintin) and her parents do not allow that the dog sleeps with her! OH BOY, I have started the germs of a future rebellion....  The dog is changing his attitude 2. In the beginning he was always barking from the window against Buzz and Tarantino in the garden who ignored the dog completely, with a disdain only cats can show. Since the rabbit has arrived, the dog stopped his noise, he is always looking as if he wants to understand what the hell is going on down there. The dog recognizes me on the streets and barks but these are happy ones. Yesterday he nearly jumped into my arms and started licking me. I asked the children if that was his normal behavior towards strangers. Oh NO!

I smiled. I am working on a new book that I baptized THE REPUBLIC OF ANIMALS, it is going to be a good one, this one.

More Nero pictures are on

Oh no!  NAUGHTY RABBIT! I wondered if it might not be a Flemish Giant... I've seen those in photos and was amazed by their size.  

Comment by Guido Vermeulen on April 2, 2013 at 5:12pm

He is! This breed is called «Flemish Giant», 24 pounds is not ekseptional.

My cats use to jump on my bed and on my legs if they want to sleep with me.

This morning around 3 AM I felt «one of them» doing this, so I took him in my arms and it was the story or Red riding hood all over again. Oh kitten how come you have so long ears, because I am a rabbit, silly human Being. I am quite tired because he did this 10 times or so during the nite ... LoL
