Kerensa, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kerensa
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Holland Lop Rabbit
Home: Fairbanks, Alaska, USA
   Kerensa is our beloved little Holland Lop. We've had her since she was ten weeks old. In all we have six wonderful bunnies, but Kerensa is my husband's favorite (and the favorite of most people who know her) because she's so cute and so sweet and so little! Kerensa's name means "love" which is very fitting for such a darling girl. Her favorite things include being petted and loved on and eating. We feel very fortunate to have Kerensa in our lives. Now, why is she special?

    Lots of reasons, but one big one is how she came to be our bunny. First we have to go back in time a bit. Our first Holland Lop died in May of 2007 and I was devastated by the loss because she was a very precious little bunny. Three years later we decided to get another Holland Lop girl because I missed having one so much. In August of 2010, we went to the fair as usual, but this time we were hoping to find a little loppy girl to take home with us. There were lots of rabbits but Kerensa is the one I fell for and had an instant connection with. When her breeder told us she'd already been sold, I was heartbroken because I felt she was supposed to be my bunny. The breeder thought to take down our phone number in case the other buyer backed out. My hopes weren't very high, but the next morning we got a call from the breeder saying she was ours! This may sound silly, but it was one of the happiest moments of my life and I cried in the car on the way to get her. Ever since, Kerensa has been a very special member of our family.
