Clover, the Pet of the Day
Name: Clover
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Lop mix
Home: Ohio, USA
   I would like to introduce my bunny Clover. My daughter and I found Clover at the ASPCA, she was one of two bunnies needing a home. As soon as we took her out of the cage and held her we knew without a doubt this sweet, gentle bun would go home with us.

    The big question was how would Benny feel, as she was to be his new mate? The bonding process took all of ten minutes. I dare say it was bun love at first sight. They have a bedroom, no cages for these two. They share their room with a bird (Sammy) and (Jude) my hamster. They have boxes to hide and move, tubes to run through, a radio to listen to and a sofa to jump on and relax.

    Clover is the smartest rabbit I have ever had. She is also the most curious and always hungry. She is often busy rearranging the boxes in their room, or redecorating I suppose. She has been known to climb into Sammy the Cockatiel's cage to get his treats and to destroy the hamster's cage to get their treats. You would think I don't feed them, but don't let that fool you. Benny and Clover are the world's most spoiled buns with their food. Blueberries, strawberries, peaches, mangos, grapes, tomatoes, dill, fresh mixed greens, home grown carrots and parsley, dandelions, and of course clover and the best hay.

    She is incredibly protective of Benny. He has an ongoing eye infection that needs to be treated with medicine and when I pick him up and place him on the sofa to administer the medicine she hops up to make sure he is ok. If his eye waters a lot, she licks it.

    When I lay on the sofa and read she jumps up into my arms for cuddles and purrs when I pet her. She is so sweet and loving, smart and curious. A true joy and a wonderful mate for Benny. They show such love and affection toward each other it melts my heart.
