National Pet Month – Rabbit (Winnie-the-Pooh)

by jeanineoloughlin


May is National Pet Month so here are some famous pets in literature.

Rabbit – Winnie-the-Pooh

Rabbit is the take charge cautionary one of the group of characters in Winnie-the-Pooh story. He can be bossy at times but has good intentions with his ways. He’s a character that I loved, but doesn’t often get the attention that some of the other characters of the Hundred Acre Wood do. While most of the characters in the story are based on stuffed animals owned by Christopher Robin, rabbit appears to be more like an actual living rabbit. He and Owl often play the sound of reason amongst the other characters in the story bringing almost a “straight man” element to the silly world of Winnie-the-Pooh.
