Benjamin, the Pet of the Day
Name: Benjamin
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rabbit
Home: Massachusetts, USA
   Benjamin was brought to an animal shelter as a "wild" rabbit. His demeanor is obviously not that of a wild rabbit, so I suspect that he was probably born into a household that couldn't keep him for one reason or another and set him loose. I'm saddened that someone would ever turn away such a loving creature, but thrilled that he gets to live with me now. :) Benjamin's not always the sharpest rabbit -- he has a habit of occasionally tipping over while he's grooming himself, but he tries to act as if nothing's happened. What he may lack in his overall intelligence, he definitely makes up with his charm. He will sit and allow himself to be petted for as long as one may need, which proves useful when you've had a stressful day. He likes to hop up onto the bed, and try to "dig" at the sheets... oddly enough, it seems like he tries to fill in the imaginary "hole" that he's dug by pushing the sheets back into place. He can be a troublemaker, too. As for games and such, they're mostly limited to "attack the stick" or "sneak around Steve and hide under the bed". (He seems to really like being way under the bed -- I think it's because it's "off-limits". I hope that helps you to understand a little bit of why Benjamin is so very special to me.
