Skittles is our new bunny. We just got him earlier this month. He comes from an auction. We went to get a bunny, and they were either not what we were looking for, or they were being sold in groups of two or three and we only wanted one. When three lops came up, my brother knew he wanted one, so when they sold, I asked the man who bought them if he needed all of them. He said he planned to use them for breeding, so he sold us one. Now sweet Skittles will get lots of love! He is still a shy one, but usually calm. Maybe he just needs to get over his auction experience. It must have been traumatizing for him! If he feels he isn't being treated with the royal respects he deserves, he will kick to let us know. He does need to learn not to do that, because it's pretty painful. He loves lettuce!
Skittles looks calm, but when introduced to my dog I had to remind her to be nice because Skittles was trying to run away from her. I don't blame him, after all, my dog is a bit larger :) Skittles doesn't really like to be held, but if we hold him firmly he feels safe and doesn't struggle.
Although we thought he would be companion to our female rabbit, we have discovered to our dismay that Skittles is a boy. So now they have to live separately. But he is still a very loved bunny. He got to play outside today and enjoyed that.
