While many work-at-home moms (collectively referred to as WAHMs for short) very much value that they don’t have to leave the domicile to make some money for the home, and in effect, can take care of the kids and the household chores without any additional trouble, it can be said that I find myself in much the similar situation. As a freelance writer, nearly all of my work is done from the comfort of my living room and/or home office. All of my correspondence with my clients is either via email or IM, so there really is no reason for me to have to go to a physical office (other than my own). At the same time, I get to stay at home with my kid… so to speak.

Meet Roy. He’s our son, so to speak, just not in a biological sense. Roy (his full name is Roy O’Bunny, named after Owen Wilson’s character, Roy O’Bannon, from Shanghai Noon with Jackie Chan) is a Netherland Dwarf Rabbit as far as we can tell, but we have a feeling that he isn’t a purebred. He has characteristics of a couple of other breeds, but he’s certainly got a personality of his own.

Sometimes, he just likes to chill. Even though I leave his cage door open for most of the day, he’ll oftentimes just hang out on the plank I have in there for him, sniffing the air for no apparent reason, occasionally dozing off for a quick nap. He also enjoys being held in my arms as you can see in the picture above. He’s just like a little baby…

At the same time, he can be pretty feisty, running and darting around the living room causing all sorts of ruckus. When he gets frustrated or angry, he’ll start chewing/yanking on the carpet. That’s a big no-no and he knows it (but he also knows that it’ll grab my attention). Do you have a furry companion? Let me know in the comments section below!
