||One year old|
||Netherland Dwarf Rabbit|
||Norwich, England, United Kingdom|
wanted a Netherland Dwarf rabbit for a long time and I went to a lot
of trouble getting one, but it was definitely worth it when we found
Pandora. I loved her the moment I saw her, and it seemed the feeling was
mutual, because when I first picked her up she clawed her way
up my jacket to lick my nose and cheeks! She still does this when she's
in an excitable mood - she will race around in circles at top speed,
roll over on her back, then jump up to greet you with a nose lick.
When she was a kitten, she rolled off the bed onto the floor and damaged
one of her toes, which the vet said didn't need treatment, but now one
of her claws sticks up at a 45 degree angle! It doesn't stop her racing
around though. She seems to have as much of a sweet tooth as I do, as
her favorite foods are fruit rather than vegetables. She can hear a
banana being peeled from a mile off! As well as bananas, she loves
apples, carrots, greens and broccoli. She is a fussy eater and will only
munch on the freshest, greenest timothy hay. She's a house bunny as she
loves lots of attention, being stroked and falling asleep on my lap when
I'm watching telly.
Her favorite pastimes are eating, scrabbling and burrowing, gnawing at
my magazines and books, hiding under the bed and exploring the house.
