Calla and Towahee the jackalopes
Now available on Etsy
Calla the jackalope is quite shy, as most jackalopes are. She likes to run, but she also likes to find sunny spots and sleep. Those are definitely her two favourite things. She sleeps belly up to best soak up the sun, and often just stares at the clouds, dreaming in blue.
Jackalopes are very good at mimicking any sound, especially human voices. They evolved to originally do this to evade pursuers, but it has its uses in other everyday situations. Calla is a house jackalope though, thanks to the compassion of humans she is quite happy to live among us.
Her brother, Towahee, is an enthusiastic and inquisitive young jackalope. He is shy at first, but can become quite bold very quickly when meeting new people. He loves running with Calla, and having his belly rubbed. He is quite a tubby chap, but very happy!
Wild jackalopes can be caught by leaving out a glass of whiskey at night. It leaves them warm and happy which makes them very easy to catch. Towahee isn’t old enough enough to drink but his dad says that the Scottish whiskeys are the best, particularly single malts. I’d like to meet the hunter that leaves out a glass of single malt to catch a mythical creature… I bet he’s fun to be around.
