Baron, the Pet of the Day
Name: Baron
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: English Angora Rabbit
Home: Grayson, Kentucky, USA
   This is my bunny Baron. He is a blue tort english angora buck. He has beautiful dark blue eyes and wonderfully soft fur. His favorite foods are spring mix salads, dried tropical pineapple and any kind of cereal he can get. Baron has a very loving personality and his favorite game is playing tag with his sister Duchess. That's her resting after a game with him in the bottom picture. His favorite toys are his baby rattles, big empty boxes and brown paper bags. He comes when you call him and is very well behaved.

    Angoras require a lot more grooming than most bunnies but Baron only has to be combed out about one time a week. He has an exceptionally high quality coat that does not matt easily. After grooming he likes papaya tabs and pineapple juice which also help to prevent him from getting woolblock. Unlike cats, rabbits cannot cough up hair that they ingest while grooming themselves. So owners of this particular breed help keep them healthy by giving them preventatives such as papaya tablets, kitty hairball remover, petromalt, wild bird seed and pineapple juice.
