About Us
Ihop, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ihop
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Netherland Dwarf
Home: Byron, Georgia, USA
   Ihop is a very special rabbit. We rescued him a year and a half ago from an owner who couldn't care for him any more. His favorite treats are a small piece of apple just before bed, along with an extra helping of Timothy Hay. His favorite things to do are taking walks outside, around our home, and when inside, he loves to sneak into the master bedroom, and get under the bed. He knows he's not supposed to be there, however, and if we go in the bedroom, he thumps (because he knows he's in trouble), and he runs out, and goes back into his cage.

    Ihop is also quite the man, so to speak. We had him neutered in September of 2000, and the vet told us he could be around our female rabbit in a few days. We had our first litter of rabbits 34 days later, which was a surprise to us all! We have since learned that a male rabbit shouldn't be with a female rabbit until two weeks after his neuter!

    Ihop is a very affectionate rabbit, and enjoys his daily cuddle sessions with my husband and I. He gets quite bent out of shape if his routine is altered in any way.
