Thumper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Thumper
Age: Deceased, Five and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Dwarf rabbit
Home: Ontario, Canada
   This is my rabbit, Thumper, whom I had for four years. I first got Thumper at an Ontario SPCA shelter. I was immediately attracted to her as she put her feet up on the glass and stared right at me saying "take me home!" From that minute on, I knew I would be taking her home. She never used to like getting picked up, but after a couple years work, she loved to be held. The best part of having her as a pet was that I would have something to come home to every day, knowing that she would brighten my day.

    Thumper passed away a couple months ago due to a brain condition (head tilt) which is not uncommon in rabbits and can come out of nowhere. Despite her condition she was the most energetic rabbit I had ever seen and loved to eat. She would eat anything I gave her and would flip her food dish over and over, making as much noise as possible, if she was hungry. She loved the camera and had a great personality and will never be forgotten. Rabbits are the best pets, and Thumper, I will always love you!
