Bugs, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bugs
Age: Fourteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: French Lop
Home: Bedford, United Kingdom
   My husband and I recently got married. Our first pet together was Bugs! When we first got him, Paul had broken his shoulder and had to spend many weeks lying on the settee. It was during this time that Bugs first learnt to jump onto the settee to offer his creature comforts to a sorry invalid and soon established himself as a proper 'house rabbit'. Hopping up the stairs, jumping on the bed, eating house plants, 'climbing' onto tables (and into Christmas tree!) and drinking the toilet water are some of his antics! He most definitely rules the roost now and can be seen in the pictures on his two favorite mats, where he spends most of his time rolling over onto his back. He has a very strong personality, a quite bullish attitude, if food is around he will endeavour to steel it at all costs - this mostly occurs with unsuspecting guests who find themselves with a six kg rabbit on their lap swiping food off their plate or even attempting to snatch from their very own mouths! Even stealing the cat's food wasn't a problem - he has now made a sport out of chasing the cat a high speed all over the house! Basically he's not normal! but we love him to pieces - even when he jumps on the bed at 3am and bites our feet!!
