The Irresistible Cottontail

Cottontail personalities are small, gentle individuals with a tendency towards shyness and have an instinct to scuttle at the first sign of danger. Their extraordinarily acute senses are always on the lookout for impending peril.   But the hallmark of cottontails is that they are astoundingly cute and rely heavily on their adorable personalities and vulnerable appearance to garner friends, mates and resources.

Cottontail Personalities can be Quirky

These beautiful and skittish creatures have the most elegant imaginations of all... spending endless hours creating magnificent castles in air and populating them with a variety of whimsically pastoral characters. These romantic dreams dramatically influence the cottontail's behavior, and --- although they could be described as quirky -- they're friendly, warm, and understanding.

Although they are bright, cottontails often hide their intelligence if it threatens to interfere with their primary method of survival: cuteness! Almost all mammal personalities find them to be irresistibly attractive and cottontails rarely need to employ personal resources to succeed in their careers or relationships.

Cottontail Personalities are Socially Adept

Their quiet, solitary behavior is often mistaken for timidity, but cottontails are actually quite aggressive in their search for resources. They may lack the physical strength of larger animal personalities, but count on their social skills to compete in the workplace.

Cottontails function best in situations that don't involve confrontations, which means they are not natural salespeople. Instead, their ability to play well with others means they are well-suited for careers in customer support, diplomacy, administrative work and nursing.

Cottontails in the Wild

Cottontails have fur that varies in color from a reddish-brown to dark gray. They are abundant throughout the world and particularly favor brush-covered woodland.   As an herbivore, the cottontail faces challenges in digesting the coarse twigs and grass that makes up its diet, and unlike other grazing animals -- such as goats and sheep which can chew their cud -- the cottontail must pass the food through its digestive system twice to ensure complete digestion.

Love & Friendship

Cottontails can be impossibly cute, and while their gentle natures makes them thoughtful partners, their propensity to follow-the-leader makes for something of a lackluster lover. Unbridled passion might be the cottontail's promise but its tendency to go with the flow makes this bunny's love life predictable and submissive.

So why do people love cottontails so much? Perhaps it’s because they put the feelings of others before their own. The cottontail's partner always comes first, even before its children and siblings. But this doesn't mean that cottontails are desperate for mates... they choose their partners deliberately and carefully.

Cottontails have an annoying habit of leaping into bad relationships... it's the cottontail curse that irresistibly draws them towards stronger animal personalities who offer the strength they crave.  But these relationships are ultimately disastrous, as Monica Lewinsky encountering the teeth of a wolf.

Bats and foxes are too spiritual for these practical animals, so long-term relationships are best with fellow herbivores who share the cottontail's pastoral spirit. Deer, prairie dogs, and beavers make for strong unions, but marriage to passive sheep are their best bet for the long run.
