makes Star so special to our family is that she keeps us on our
toes. Star was brought into the family about two and a half years ago.
My daughter Chantal tricked me into keeping her when all the rest of the
girls backed out on taking care of the pet. She basically took Star and
put her in my face and with tears running down her face said..."Say
Goodbye to Mom!" Well, of course that's all it took and we kept her.
Star is a beautiful little black rabbit with some white through her. To
our surprise last year she had five baby rabbits. We thought she was
actually a male. Chantal took her to a neighbors one day and put Star in
the same cage with theirs. A month later to our amazement out of her
house popped a little baby rabbit. Boy, what a surprise. I guess we
didn't check the rabbit out enough. Ha Ha. We are glad she is a part of
our family and we found good homes for all her babies!
Star is certainly a great house pet. She has a house in our basement
that is fit for a King. Her house is eight feet long, she has a little
house built inside for sleeping quarters and at the other end she has
her bathroom. She is litter box train. She has a toy wheel in her house
that she enjoys flipping around. Her house was custom made so she would
have a lots of room to run around in and get exercise. She loves Chantal
rubbing her belly. When Chantal turns her on her back she actually goes
to sleep in her arms like that. Chantal always takes her outside so
other children can pet her and she lets Star run around the garden, eat
some grass and stretch her legs. Boy, oh boy...she really can do some
fantastic flips in the air. We get great enjoyment out of her. She is
just like a little baby and Chantal treats her like that. Star also gets
along well with our cat Fluffy... sometimes they crash out together. One
of Star's favorite food is carrots... I think she likes them so much
because we hand feed it to her. She is spoiled. She is a lovely rabbit
and a great addition to the family.
