Rocky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rocky
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rabbit
Home: Columbia, South Carolina, USA
   Rocky is an albino rabbit. He was adopted when he was about three weeks old. He and his litter mate were brought to Columbia, SC, where they now live with two other bunny pals. He manages to keep his human slaves entertained by getting into plenty of mischief!

    Rocky was a rescue from a medical research facility. When we got him his mother and several other siblings had died in an accident and he had recently been attacked by some type of another animal - no one knows what animal. He was three to four weeks old at that time and had some pretty substantial injuries. His devotion to his litter mate and his will to live really stole my heart. This is really a special little guy - I suspect if a bunny that was hurt as badly as he was when he was a kit lives, there is going to be something to look out for in that one.

    A friend of mine summed it up when she said he is just like a toddler; and he is - he absolutely gets into everything. He has gotten on the kitchen table and ate the seedlings for the parsley this spring then was seen playing in the fireplace and getting that white fur sooty which took days of brushing to get it out. He can get into so much mischief and then give you "the look" and wait to be picked up and cuddled.
