Parsley, the Pet of the Day
Name: Parsley
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Netherland Dwarf
Home: Durham, United Kingdom
   Parsley is a lovely caring and intelligent rabbit who has been living with us for almost three years now. Like many rabbits, he is very inquisitive, especially when it comes to cleaning out the hutches he shares with his two girlfriends, Matilda and Pepper (I suppose he just wants to make sure I'm doing it right!).

    He is very acrobatic, and loves to do "binkies", and is a great fan of the Bunny-anapolis 500 round our garden at a million miles an hour!!! He loves to groom himself, his friends and pretty much anything else - if I lie down on the floor, he will even groom my hair, and pulls and nibbles at my clothes he likes (or maybe doesn't, on account of all the holes!) So I suppose you could say he is my own personal stylist!

    As he's been getting older, his palate has changed... (happens to all of us) When younger, he used to love carrots and parsley (his namesake!) and we loved his "carrot breath". But now he has progressed on to more "grown-up" foods, like prickly hedges and rose bushes - which, we think, are the rabbit equivalent of hot and spicy curries!
