||Three years old|
is my sweet, playful rabbit. He has black, fluffy fur. On the neck there
is a white stripe; it looks like he is wearing a collar. Leon lives in a
large, fenced and covered area. For hiding or sleeping, he has a stable. His
playmate called Chilli. She is an eight-year-old dwarf rabbit. Chilli has a
white fur with black spots.
In fine weather, the two go outside and play in a cage on the lawn. There
they eat grass. They get daily rabbit food and fresh water. They also like to
nibble treats such rabbit safe chips and peas. They very much like to eat
breadsticks and fresh carrots or turnip greens. By nibbling on stale bread or
rolls the rabbits file off their teeth. This is important because unlike us,
their teeth grow all the time. Every eight weeks, we cut his claws, similar
to our own fingernails. Once a year, the two will be examined and vaccinated
by a veterinarian.
Both Leon and Chilli are easy to capture and caress. It looks especially
sweet when they sniff something or eat treats from your hand. Leon and Chilli
also often get a visit from my friends. They will then petted and cuddled a
lot. If I'm not at home, my mother feeds them. When we are on vacation, they
are cared for by a neighbor, so we make sure they are always happy. I really
like them and am glad that I have Leon, and Chilli too.
