Bun Bun, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bun Bun
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rabbit
Home: California, USA
   My pet's name is Honey Bunny (better known as Bun Bun) and he is a male Holland Lop rabbit. He is two years old. Since he was already one years old, it was hard to train him because his previous owner did not. He was used to being locked up in a small cage and never coming out. We let him have free reign of the downstairs, and I think that confused him. I thought he would be happy to finally get out of his cage, but he wouldn't come out until a few days after. At first he was shy, and then he was hard to manage. He wouldn't let me pet him.

    Over time, he got much better. I litter-trained him, and he is very sweet now. You would never know he was ever hard to manage! He loves to flop on his back and jump high in the air and twist when he is happy.

    He is very curious. Once he got caught in the radiator! We got him out eventually and he was okay, thank goodness! Another time he was in the bathroom, and I had just put in a new roll of toilet paper. Some of it was hanging down, and Bun Bun pawed at it and clawed it until the whole roll of toilet paper was unrolled. He should have been punished by being put back in his cage, but all I could do was laugh. I admit that I am a bit obsessed with him. I can't help it, though, he is such a good bunny!
