Rocky the rabbit

By

Posted Jan 10, 2015

My sister bought Rocky from a pet shop. There were 3 brothers and sisters, and after we bought him, my neighbor bought the other 2! So, they had the opportunity to grow together, as we brought him to the neighbor's house almost every weekend.

But, unlike his siblings, Rocky was very scared from people. He hardly got used to me and my sister, and we had problems whenever a guest visited my house. He'd run downstairs and hide under the stairs. While keeping him, I realized that he is not a fan of carrots, and my imaginations about rabbit were destroyed :)

On the positive side, Rocky had an amazing grey and white fiber and he was prettier than his other two siblings. My father built a house with his name on it, but he never got used to sit there, except for the lunch time. He was running all over our house, and had no intention of going outside. We were completely sure that there is no chance that he will escape, even if we left the door wide open.

Unfortunately, he had health problems, mostly with the digestive system. Back then I was young and inexperienced in pet care, so I didn't know what to do when he showed the first signals of slowing down.

To summarize, a rabbit is excellent selection for a pet only if you have a lot of time and conditions about placing him in your house, and of course, you should have the nerves to clean everything he lefts behind :)
