Every morning Flicka is either waiting on the hallway rug or racing to meet me as I open the bedroom door. We meet on the rug and she immediately starts 'snouting' my feet i.e. nudging, running her nose over them and up my leg... it is quite forceful and, in fear of a nip and assuming she is asking me to feed her, I've always continued on my way down the hallway with her following.
I now realise this is her way of saying 'good morning, did you sleep well, any bad dreams? etc, etc and that it was really quite rude of me to not respond to this. So from now on I shall be minding my manners and enjoying the morning feet-greeting ritual in all its snouty glory. Of course, she still wants food after - but then what self-respecting rabbit would turn down the chance of free grub?
