Grandkids Don’t Do Bunnyhugging

The grandkids don’t do bunny-hugging
Exclusively; what they do do —
In case you have found yourselves shrugging —
Is hug everything in the zoo.

Though bunnies caressing with pleasure,
One cannot claim, therefore, that that’s
To say, when in moments of leisure,
They don’t also fondle giant rats.

They always do guinea pigs, gerbils,
And even might go for hedge-hogs,
And, too, one reluctantly burbles,
They even do toads and some frogs.

They make friends with all sorts of creatures:
Though this does one most nervous make:
As one of their lovable features,
They might also cuddle a snake.

  1. I would cuddle and hug, anything from a bear to a bug. but one requestI would always make, please don’t include a snake


  2. Lovely, children and animals nothing nicer, my youngest granddaughter Poppy May is animal crazy, and not yet 3 years old. Her sister Ruby has a thing for flamingoes, and since they’ve left the big smoke for the country now have a couple of goats.
    Their mummy and daddy have just bought a 6½ hectares property in northern NSW and I have little doubt that there will soon be a lot more than 2 goats and one dog

    The girls are very sweet with the animals. You can see how caring they are! And maybe just a tad brave, too. 🙂

    Hedge-hog hugging might be pricky, I mean tricky…
