Bimberly, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bimberly
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female
Kind: Lop Rabbit
Home: England
   Bimberly is my rabbit, and her age is probably three to five(ish) not to sure as she was a rescue rabbit. Bimberly started off as the most nervous and aggressive rabbit possible, simply walking past her hutch would set her off growling at you. She had had little contact with any humans and had been alowed to run free range around a garden for most of her life. After several weeks I began to notice a change in her, no more growling :) and although I had picked her up before this to move her from hutch to run and so on, this was the first time she had been completely fine about it, in fact she seemed to love it. Now I seem to be the only person she trusts and she will only let other people near her with me there telling her "It's okay, they're nice."

    Recently I started playing in the garden a lot with her and found out that if you roll a ball toward her she'll roll it back, like playing a game of football. I'm trying to get her to roll it into a net (a cardboard box turned on its side) so we can have 'proper' game with her. Maybe I could even teach my guinea pigs and they could compete!

    Bimberly was ehe first rabbit I ever owned and I love her so much for what she's taught me about myself. She taught me how to be more dominant (so that I'm not obeying the rules of small fluffy creatures all the time) but to be kind about it. She helped me to find the right balance of hugs and cuddles and understanding when she needs her own space. I love her very much.
