Snickers, the Pet of the Day
Name: Snickers
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: American Rabbit
Home: Tampa, Florida, USA
   Snickers found me while I volunteered at the SPCA of Tampa Bay. He ran over to me and put his head down for petting. He closed his eyes and just enjoyed it while I gave him his bunny love. I couldn't go home without him. He loves to smooth out the blankets and sheets that I give him to play with, then build them up and smooth them out again. He's very creative. He gets very excited during meal time and jumps up in the air and nips because he's very passionate about his food. And he's very handsome and cuddly.

    Snickers loves attention and affection. He runs over to me when I enter the room and puts his head down for pets. He likes me to give him kisses all over and will stay as long as I keep the kisses and pets coming. Sometimes he even "grooms" me by giving me little bunny licks on my nose and forehead. It tickles :)!

    Snickers does a couple of cool "tricks." I put him on my bed and he "skis." He slides his two front paws to smooth out the wrinkles in the blanket, then hops his back two paws forward. It's so cute. He also gets very excited at feeding time and jumps up on his back two paws and bites into the air. Sometimes I forget to put the food down quickly enough and get nipped, but he never hurts me.

    Snickers is also very curious and always manages to get to all the places that I try to keep him out of - like my closet and behind the furniture. I'm constantly Snicker-proofing on a daily basis because he is so smart.
