Kipper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kipper
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dwarf lop-eared rabbit
Home: Norwich, England
   Meet Kipper - he's nine months old, but thinks he's still a kit. Kipper's favorite pastimes are running around and seeing how high he can jump. He thinks he's too big to be cuddled, but if you don't look at him for a while he jumps up onto the sofa to be with you. If I'm lying on the floor he likes to sit on my back and bounce around. He will eat pretty much anything - and always tries to eat our African grey parrot's food. Quincey (the parrot) encourages this by saying "Come on" whenever Kipper is near, and by throwing food down for him to eat. He once ate a chilli pepper with some not very pleasant consequences, so he seems to have learnt not to do that again.

    He's really cute, and captures everyone's heart - even the vet went gooey when we took him for a check up - and he ended up being paraded around the waiting room so all the other patient's owners could see how cute he is. Kipper has a toy stuffed-dog, which sometimes he fights with, but mostly he goes to sleep cuddling up to it.
