It is a LOOOOOONG story.
Both of my sissies have E names. E.Rabbit and E.Beth.
E.Rabbit's second name is from my dad's family - it is "Abbott."
When she was tiny, there was a ban on talking baby talks to her.
So Muzzer called E.Rabbit by lots of funny names instead.
"Nummy" and "Pumilly" and "Nummy Pummy" were just a few.
Then came reading time, and a lot of E.Rabbit's favorite books had Rabbits in them.
She even had a tiny bean bag stuffie
that looked like Benjamin Bunny from the Beatrix Potter books.
Then muzzer came home with this funny looking character (actually, just one that looked like this)
Her name became "Pot Belly" and she joined Benjamin Bunny and a few others who shared the bed with E.Abbott. Somewhere along the line, E.Abbott became E.Rabbit, and the name has been haunting her ever since.
Which makes me a little worried, because sometimes muzzer calls me Gussie Wussie, and I don't know if I can deal with that forever.
Now, how did this picture get in here!
