Miss Stewart, the Pet of the Day
Name: Miss Stewart
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Dwarf Rabbit
Home: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
   This is our pet rabbit, Miss Stewart (we thought she was male at first! Oops). The best vet's guess at her age places her at about one year old. Miss Stewart came to be our pet quite by accident. She was abandoned in a laneway last summer, and left to fend for herself. She would hop through the yards on our street around sundown each night, looking very domestic and terribly out of place. It took weeks (and a few honey treats) to gain her trust, but finally I was able to pick her up and bring her inside, out of the unbearable heat wave we were experiencing. She was skin and bones, and very nervous. Our two cats, Alpo and Roady, weren't quite sure what to think at first, but have come around and grown quite fond of little Miss Stewart, as have we.

    She loves being loose with the cats, playing with them (well, chasing them really) for a few hours each evening. She gets her exercise going up and down the stairs, and Alpo may even shed a few pounds himself! She is a sponge for affection and after her evening romp, she will cuddle up and fall asleep in our arms. She has come a long way in a very short time, and is now a confident and outgoing rabbit, much loved by us all.
