About Us
Buck, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buck
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lop-eared Rabbit
Home: Stockport, United Kingdom
   Buck is very special to me and my husband as he is the first rabbit we have ever had. We chose getting a house rabbit against getting a dog and when we saw Buck in a cage all alone on New Years Day we couldn't wait to bring him home. He had been on his own since Christmas Eve and was looking very sorry for himself. He is a very timid rabbit and it took us a while to persuade him that we weren't going to hurt him and lots of patience. He is now more loving than ever and will let you stroke him. He is neutered and we have since got a partner for him, Buttercup, she is a bit of a handful and picks on Buck but hopefully in two months she will be spayed and will calm down. They come with us when we go on holiday in our touring caravan. Buck loves to sleep at the bottom of the bed next to my husband's feet. Then in the middle of the night he thinks it is time to play and sits on your chest and you wake up with his nose and a ball of fur in your face!! His fur is so soft when you put your hand on him you sink in. One morning we woke to find holes in the blanket, he had decided to chew it while waiting for us to wake up. He is normally a good rabbit, uses his litter tray perfectly and has a great personality. My husband and I wouldn't swap him for the world.
