And they called it bunny love! This little girl is best friends with a huge rabbit.
Stay-at-home mum Lindsay Smith bought fluffy brown Continental Giant rabbit – named Cocoa Puff – in 2017 as a gift for daughter Macy’s second birthday.
But the big bunny has since grown so huge his monthly food bill is £200 and he needs a litter tray 10 times the size a normal rabbit would.
Mum-of-two Lindsay said her gargantuan pet is almost the same size as Macy, now three, and the adorable duo have become inseparable since they first met, playing with toys, watching TV and playing in the garden together.
Lindsay said: “Cocoa Puff, like other rabbits, takes a lot of work to care for.
“However, due to his size certain things are more work — such as changing his litter boxes.
“Cocoa Puff has always been wonderful with children, he loves being where the action is and is super patient and calm, making him a great family pet.
“Macy and Cocoa Puff have always had a special bond, they are always together.”
Despite the most eye-catching aspect of Cocoa being his size, he is actually small for his breed.
The online sensation has since racked up thousands of online fans for his hilarious pictures and videos, which show him appearing to dwarf his young companions.
Lindsay added: “Cocoa Puff is actually small for his breed, we were hoping he would be about 5lbs heavier.
“People are always surprised by his size, not knowing rabbits this big existed.”
