Bunny, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bunny
Age: Six months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Dwarf Lop Rabbit
Home: Birmingham, England, United Kingdom
   Her name is Bunny and she is a female rabbit. This photo was taken when she was three months old. At the moment Bunny lives in a spare room as it is winter time and here in the UK it is extremely cold and she would not survive those kind of conditions. During the summer she stays out in the garden during the day, she gets to run around the garden and have fun as we have a six foot fence all around so she is secure but we still supervise her as she like to dig and has escaped a few times into the garden next door and we have to spend all evening chasing her. We also have two cats and I recently bought a guinea pig, her name is Winnie.

    Bunny has been through a lot lately, she unexpectedly gave birth to six lovely baby lop eared rabbits. We did not know that she was even pregnant. She conceived when we where looking after a friend's rabbits and she told us that they were females. Bunny's babies are ten days old now and have just opened their little eyes. The vets did not expect them to survive as I had touched them (I didn't know the first thing about breeding) but Bunny has accepted me touching them from day one. Maybe she appreciates me helping her out, I don't know. I have suffered from bad depression now for over one year and Bunny has brought so much joy into my life, especially with the birth of her new family. I just want everyone to know the story of Bunny and her new family. I guess she isn't alone any more.
