niece LOVES rabbits, and since she lives in the City of Washington,
D.C., I keep a few on-hand for her to play with when she comes to
visit. Meet Wilbur.
is generally a quiet animal, but he is not completely silent. He is
quite vocal from time-to-time, making plenty of noises from growling
your rabbit growls or grunts at you, he's not happy about something.
Maybe he's angry that you're poking your hand into his cage, and he
doesn't want you in her territory. Growling can be a sign of anger,
fear, uncertainty and stress. Wilbur tends to growl when birds sit on
his cage. He is not a fowl-friendly bunny.

puppies. They are probably wanting some attention or love.
is a “licker”, too. This means he is happy and glad that you are
coming over to visit. He licks and nuzzles my niece constantly, and
even sleeps with her in bed just like a puppy. Wilbur can even use
the cat's litter box when he goes into the city on Field Trips. He
is a pretty cool cottontail!
