Poe, the Pet of the Day
Name: Poe
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Rabbit
Home: USA
   I'd like to introduce my pet, her name is Poe, she's about two years old, I'm not sure what breed of bunny she is. I found her on Craigslist and jumped at the chance of welcoming her to my home. But after we brought her home, we found that she was very frightened of being petted. So, sadly, I think she was neglected at her first home. We have doted on her and are trying to spoil her in every way we can. We went out and bought her own 12' x 7' carpet so she can run to her heart's delight. I bought her a wicker ball for $5.00, but she would rather play with an empty paper towel roll. I talk to her every chance I can and she has stopped grunting now when we pet her. She grunts once in a while, but more often than not she doesn't.

    What makes Poe special to me is that I was just diagnosed with Autism (I'm 43) and she is a great support to me. I talk to her through out the day and she sits still and I seem to think she's actually listening to me. If she seems nervous or tense, I'll take extra time to talk to her and give her a treat to let her know that she is loved and wanted in our home and holds a special place to us. I hope one day that she'll stop grunting and tensing up when we pet her and that she'll actually come over to us for attention, but we won't rush that. We love her just as she is.
