||Three years old|
||Broken Red Mini-Rex Rabbit|
||Nova Scotia, Canada|
is such a loving little bunny. He is my sister's bunny now, but he
used to be mine until my sister's bunny died. Hershey was trained by me and
cuddled with me but I had to give him to my sister, he still lives with me
but it's not the same (I still have Spice, his mother, who is my very
favorite). Hershey was born one July 8th at my house and has been handled by
me since he was just a pink baby. He is by far the most handsome beautiful
rabbit I've ever seen with his Easter Bunny markings which are a deep rich
orange color. Hershey was going to be going home with someone else first but
the person could no longer take him. Hershey was first named Cotton Candi, I
really didn't like that name but that's what my sister named him, I changed
his name to Ginger but as he grew older the name no longer suited him so then
I changed it to Hershey.
Hershey loves to munch on all veggies and some fruits, his favorite are oranges,
apples and carrots, he also likes to munch on Cheerios. Hershey is a very tiny
rabbit weighing four pounds. Hershey's nicknames are HershiMersh, CookieFace. Hershey
has his bad moments too, he enjoys running around the kitchen chewing on
wicker, wood, paper and wires, which we always have to raise every time he
comes upstairs. Hershey was neutered when he was three months old, before he
was neutered he was a cranky little bunny who enjoyed biting as hard as he
could, now he is friendly, cuddly and loving, sometimes he will nibble on my
finger, but he doesn't bite hard.
Hershey loves to run around the yard on his harness, his least favorite part
about the harness is getting it put on, when he was a baby he had an incident,
a friend of my sister tried to take his harness off and nearly choked him!
Once I had him out on his harness and it got caught around his leg, he began
to dart all around the yard (I still had a hold of the leash) as I followed
him, he dodged me, his harness was slipping off! Luckily I caught him, he was
scared to death and let out a very long loud scream. The poor bunny was scared
of me for a few days and took off whenever I touched him, poor bunny. I got
his trust back by bribing him with tons of treats.
He loves to lay on the couch and snuggle up to my leg. He is really cuddly.
The other day he had to go back in his cage but he didn't want to so I chased
him around the kitchen for about five minutes before I finally caught him, when
he got back in his cage he plunked down because he was so tired from the
chase. Hershey is great with the litterbox. He is fully house-trained and when
he's out of his cage, he holds his pee until he goes back in his cage.
Hershey is a very special rabbit! He is a great friend for Spice and they get
along very well! I love you HershiMersh you are a special boy!
