Cocoa stops by the coffee shop “Rabbit House” to rest. When she notices something shaggy sitting atop the Chino, the barista, Chino explains:
- 「これですか？ これはティッピーです
- “Do you mean this? This is Tippy. It’s sort of a rabbit.”
これ is used because the referenced object (Tippy) is near the speaker (Chino).
