Bunny Born With No Ears Gets The Most Adorable Crocheted Sets From The Owner

Mimi the rabbit, was born deaf with only three legs, and while she may not be able to hear, thanks to her owner, she has a unique new set of bunny ears – made of crocheted wool.

Rodajia Welch, 22, got the baby bunny through a fellow volunteer at her job where she provides basic pet care needs to low income and homeless pet owners in her hometown of Sacramento. “As soon as I saw the cute bunny I fell in love and couldn’t wait to take her home,” said Welch. Well not only did Welch give the bunny rabbit a new home but her two missing ears back.

The idea came from a name search said the California native, “Deciding to make the ears all started with finding her a name – it obviously had to be ear-related. So while doing some research my boyfriend Josh came across Kemonomimi, which is a form of cosplay where the characters have fluffy animal ears.” Thus the idea was born to dress Mimi up with her own set of cosplay crocheted ears, “It was perfect because she didn’t have any ears and she could be whatever she wanted to be.”

The three-legged white bunny now has an impressive collection of homemade rabbit ears.”She only wears the ears after I’ve just made them for pictures, or when she’s sitting with me,” explained Welch, “She lets me put them on her, but for safety reasons I don’t tie them in a knot so if she wanted to, she could just knock them off pretty easy.”

This is Mimi, she was born earless with only three legs

But thanks to her owner Rodajia Welch she has gotten some of her limbs back…kind of

Welch crochets custom bunny ears for Mimi and they are adorable

The idea came when the 22-year-old was trying to come up with a name for her

“While doing some research my boyfriend Josh came across Kemonomimi, which is a form of cosplay where the characters have animal ears”

“I got super excited and decided to make her own pair of bunny ears”

“She only wears the ears after I’ve just made them for pictures, or when she’s sitting with me”

She normally creates  rabbit-shaped ones but has recently experimented with a mouse-like pair too

“She lets me put them on her but for safety reasons I don’t tie them in a knot so if she wanted to, she could just knock them off pretty easy”

The sweet bunny was adopted by Welch from another volunteer at the non-profit they work for, which provides care to pets of low income and homeless owners

Along with Mimi, Welch is fostering her mom and siblings until she is old enough to be on her own

“She’s about seven-weeks-old so it shouldn’t be long”

Most people agreed Mimi was just as cute with and without ears

The bunny doesn't need ears, but they look cute regardless.

Dogs don't need clothes but we don't let that stop us.

'Is it even a rabbit without ears?' Yes. The same way humans without limbs are still human. :)
