Basil, the Pet of the Day
Name: Basil
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Holland Lop Rabbit
Home: St. Petersburg, Florida, USA
   All animals are very special to me, but the personality makes a huge difference. Basil is a very friendly animal, never ceasing to give nuzzles and the occasional bunny kiss. She follows me around like a puppy dog and comes when I call her. I've had her for almost a year, her birthday was August 23, 1999, and in that year she's taught me so much. She's taught me patience, love, and commitment. When I first bought her she would have nothing to do with anyone, and if the person still persisted to pet her or to pick her up, she would bite and scratch. I believe she wasn't treated too well at the pet store where I bought her, due to the fact that she was picked up by the ears. She has also taught me love, there is not much I love more than Basil. I wake up to see her and pet her every day. The commitment to clean the cage everyday, find the best fresh food, help keep her healthy is a big job, and not all kids are up to it. I think that love is what makes the world go round, and we could always use more of it. So, in conclusion, Basil is special because she helps make the world a better place.
