Rabbits, and if they are already relaxed it makes them sleepy! Watch
their eyes - they slit like Cats. A sure sign that they love it! Devil
If you put your rabbit down the center of your lap, facing away from
you, and do this, they will soon lay down and enjoy the fuss. We do this
with Devil all the time. When you've done that a bit, slowly inch down
to the nose and make the strokes longer. Devil - and all other rabbits -
love the have their noses groomed, but if this is a new technique they
might not let you touch it, as obviously it's one of their essential
Devil likes ginger biscuits to eat as a treat. This is perfectly save
for rabbits, so long as they are given very sparingly such as once a
week, as it will make them fat. Surprisingly they aren't too strong for
rabbits, and they eat them with great relish, and make their breath

Devil loves to be tickled under the chin. When doing this for your
rabbit you must make sure you can feel it's jaw bone. This is because
you know you aren't too near the eye, which they are very sensitive of,
and that you aren't too near their teeth. No matter how much you and
your rabbit have bonded, they have a tendency to nip or bite when you
touch face regions!
Devil and I hope we have helped you learn about rabbits, as he has
taught me a lot himself! He is a very special rabbit!
