Munchie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Munchie
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lionhead Dwarf Rabbit
Home: Charlotte, North Carolina, USA
   Munchie is a very sweet and adorable Lionhead dwarf rabbit. As you can see, he does not look like a typical rabbit. Due to his breed, he is very fluffy, especially around his face. He is fully grown and only weighs three pounds. Munchie is a house rabbit, so he is allowed to run freely around the house (with supervision) up to ten hours a day. He grooms himself regularly, and he is also litter-box trained!

    Munchie's favorite thing is for me to pet him of course! However, he enjoys other activities as well, such as running around the house, lounging behind the furniture, investigating new areas and being brushed! Sometimes he even enjoys a good chase! Any of the above activities may result in a binky (a.k.a. - bunny leap of joy!!) His favorite toy is a willow cube, which helps to keep his teeth in shape, as well as to satisfy his natural chewing ability. He eats a healthy salad every day, which consists of parsley, cilantro, shredded carrots, and occasionally dandelion leaves. (He also loves raisins and papaya, but since those are considered treats, they must be given in moderation!)

    When I first got Munchie, it was several months after the death of a loved one. Since that time, he has been a great source of happiness and a wonderful little companion! Even when I am having a bad day, he is able to bring a smile to my face. When I first got him, I held him every day. Now that he trusts me, he will sometimes fall asleep in my arms!

    Munchie is a great pet, and I wouldn't trade him for the world!!
