The Adopted Rabbit


An infant rabbit was orphaned. Fortunately though, a family of squirrels took it in and raised it as if it were one of their own. This adoption led to some peculiar behaviors on the part of the rabbit, including a tendency for it to eschew jumping but rather to embrace running around like its stepsiblings.

As the rabbit passed through puberty, however, it soon faced an identity crisis (don't we all!). It went to its stepparents to discuss the problem.

It allowed as to how it felt different from its stepsiblings, was unsure of its place in the universe, and was generally forlorn. Their response was, ...

"Don't scurry, be hoppy."
