Barrel, the Pet of the Day
Name: Barrel
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lop Rabbit
Home: Poland
   Barrel is raised by two moms and lives in a dorm, being the star of the campus. No one can resist Barrel's charm, although some would ask if something had happened to him, since his ears don't stand up.

    Barrel's philosophy states that what cannot be eaten does not exist. In fact he has tried almost everything, including chicken but his favorites are: used teabags, rubber flip-flops, mobile chargers and American chewing gum (there's no way to stop him). Whenever we order pizza or make sandwich he always sniffs it out and then hops on our laps and tries to steal food right from our mouth and even nips us when he doesn't get any. That's how smart he is, but when it comes to hygiene he pretends he doesn't understand why would any of us mind sleeping on a bed he has marked.

    Barrel loves to laze on the floor with all four of his legs stretched, looking quite extravagant. He is also an enthusiast of a sport called garbage-diving. Barrel used to have a tender relationship with a stuffed frog (in the background of the picture), but for no apparent reason the frog became his enemy and is now furiously attacked and thrown around.

    To be honest Barrel is the messiest, the most stubborn critter we know, but it's impossible not to forgive him when he jumps around you, cuddles and licks your nose or rolls on the floor like a barrel he is. Whatever strange thing he does, we believe he has a plan. We love that boy.
