Bugsy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bugsy
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dwarf Lop Rabbit
Home: Hillingdon, Middlesex, UK
   We homed Bugsy from the RSPCA. He is a house rabbit who started with a hutch in the kitchen - now he sleeps under our bed, has the run of the house and has a special toilet and dining room of his own, specially designed in the bottom of a wall unit. He is absolutely adorable - very lovely nature, follows us around, loves a fuss (but not being picked up), will jump up onto settee if he thinks we haven't petted him enough. He chases me upstairs in the morning for a stroke and tickle. He loves it when you stroke under his paws, on his pads and gradually stretched his paws out so you can tickle them. During family get-togethers, when everyone is gathered on the patio - so is Bugsy - center of attention. He has made our family complete - cannot imagine life without him and would never have another "outdoor" rabbit - rabbits are such social creatures - they love interaction with their family. Our Bugsy - how cute is he!
