I've had pet rabbits since I can remember, I've had about 15 now sometimes 3 at a time, I think they make great pets because they are so calm and loving, plus the fact that they're covered in fur which makes them very attractive to children.
At the moment I only have one rabbit, she is white and pale brown with a grey nose. She's a lop-eared dwarf so her ears hang down either side of her face. I love all rabbits but I do really like lop-eared ones as they are a bit different to others.
When we bought her about two years ago she was pure white and so small that I could hold her within my cupped hands. Now she's really grown, she's almost as big as the cat and I have to hold her in both arms to be able to pick her up, she weighs quite a lot too so I can't hold her for more than minutes without feeling like my arms are going to drop off.
She developed the dark grey colour over her eyes during the first winter we had her, it came with her winter coat of fur. Apart from that she was our little drop of Christmas snow. Then when her summer coat developed the pale brown came through, she may not look like a little angel anymore but she still behaves like one.
Occasionally she'll take a bit out of the wall paper off or escape from her room, yes she has her own room, and go wandering around the house tearing things up with her teeth but this doesn't happen very often, mostly when she wanders into our bedroom she will just nudge into our feet to say she wants some fuss. Then she'll lay down and let us stroke her for hours or until she needs to go to the toilet when she'll hope back to her hutch in her room and go to the toilet there.
We never litter trained her, but since day one she has always known to go the toilet in her hutch. Of course she leaves the odd dropping around the house but apart from that she's perfect, I don't know maybe she was litter trained at pets at home before we got her, or maybe she's just super intelligent.
Her favourite treats are broccoli and lettuce but even more than them she loves apples!! Whenever my husband or I are eating an apple she'll smell it and come running wanting the core and however much of it we want to give her. I make sure she always has plenty of treats and a few times a week I give her chocolate drops, special ones for rabbit, she has a very sweet tooth so she loves these.
When she's outside in her run she isn't as active as she is in the house which is weird because most rabbits are the other way around. She likes to lay down flat stretched out enjoying the sun and nibbling on any clover she can find within the grass.
She's a great bunny, with loads of character and a fantastic personality which really shows when you spend time with her. I wouldn't replace her for any other bunny as much as I love all the other bunnies I've had, they unfortunately are gone so I put all my efforts into looking after her. She's a little angel of a bunny.
