Cookie Monster, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cookie Monster
Age: Three and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rabbit
Home: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
   This is my baby Cookie Monster. When I first brought him home he was too young for me to tell what gender he was. The people at the pet store told us he was a girl so we named him Cookie. We originally wanted to name him Cheerio because he was so small he could squeeze into a cheerio box to get at the cereal. We found out later that she was really a he. We couldn't rename him so we just added Monster to the end of Cookie.

    He is the sweetest rabbit ever. He never bites and loves to be petted. He even trained himself to only "go" in his cage. So we let him roam all over the basement and never lock him in his cage. Cookie learned how to open the laundry room door, then hops a few steps into the laundry room and comes right back out! He hates uncarpeted floors! We love the fact that his sense of smell isn't good, you can throw a treat on the floor and he won't find it until you shove it right under his nose.

    He's got a great appetite and will try new foods such as broccoli, carrots, grapes, apples, Cheerios, and other good snacks. But his favorite treats are yogurt drops. He is such a good-natured pet and just wants love, affection, and a couple hundred treats a day!
