What I love about Dopey? He is a good looking bunny with perfect features, super cute. He is very calm and chill. There was once I brought him to my friend's house, the female rabbit in the house went CRAZY and was jumping all over the cage. He just hopped along as if nothing big was happening. Very cool attitude, almost like a hippie bunny. He is also receptive to petting and will sit and let me pet for endless hours. Sometimes if he really likes the petting he will lick me as a way of saying thank you. I love the way he drinks water too, the cute slurping sounds. The sounds coupled with his little tongue licking his mouth. These are the moments I live for.
But of course bunnies are naturally prey animals. Dopey doesn't like to be cuddled. Although I heard that it is something that can be trained since young, I guess I just did not cuddle him enough when he was a baby. Dopey used to be toilet trained, going to his cage to poop and pee. But as he explored more of the house, he started to make other parts of the house his official toilet. Dopey also has his hormones raging at times and humps my leg (LOL). But a stern NO will turn him away, something we trained him to understand.
Overall, he is an active bunny when we let him out to play in the garden and a lazy bunny when he is in his room. He sleeps a lot so it's pretty low maintenance.
