Cotton came calling today.

Cottonthe bunny visited with Andy Rent as he talked about her on the Andy in the Morning show for Wet Nose Wednesday.

Ashley, from the Humane Society of West Michigan, brought Cotton into the studios.

Cotton is a 1-year old English Angora mixed rabbit. Cotton was originally found as a stray and she was luckily found and brought in, as she is clearly not a wild rabbit.

According to Petfinder.com, rabbits have strikingly distinctive personalities. They can be as playful and silly as puppies or kittens, as independent and fascinating as cats, or as loyal and openly affectionate as dogs. And long-time rabbit owners claim that domestic rabbits are, in their own way, every bit as smart as cats and dogs.

Ashley also mentioned Reading Between Friends!
