Here's Acacia. She's my 5 year old mixed dwarf- character she is <3<3 I'm partial to bunnies because I have owned neither birds nor chinnies. Birds seem like an amusing but unpleasant pet to have - that's my opinion be it uneducated or what. All to those who love them though!
I would get a large breed bunny next, or another mini rex. I love rexes but I think larger breeds are both calmer and overlooked in the rescues!
One thing I suggest, look into the rescues in your area. Most rescues spay and neuter all bunnies going through their care -which is a huge bonus for the price. Chinnie I don't know about spaying but have a whole different care sheet than bunnies ^.^
I cannot wait to see your choice!!
D'aww, I love the pic of her in the box x] so cute!
I'll definitely do that if I do decide to get a bunny!
Bosley, Murphy must be really calm to let you have him upside down like that o-o
All these photos make me miss my bunny. :( I'll get one when I move out sometime.
I +1 the rescue thing, pretty much every good rabbit rescue will spay/neuter your bunny for you. Also I think a bunny would be a more social pet than a chinchilla, from what I've heard they tend to be more pets that you have to let approach you on their own terms when they're ready. Of course, birds would be the most social of the 3 xD
Yeah, I'm leaning more towards a 'tiel than anything...only problem is when I go to collage in a few years, I don't know if I'd be able to take him with me... :/
My friend lost her bunny from holding him upside down. It's actually a defense bunnies have to predators. People call it a "trance" but it's actually bunny going into a bit of a trance to prepare for the shock of death. I could never hold my bunnies upside down, they always freaked out. When I found out m friend lost her bunny I am now devoted to spreading the word.
Some people have to in order to clip nails and teeth but I think it's unsafe.
Oy. o_O NOT holding upside down! haha
Reminds me of those youtube videos of rabbits "floating" peacefully in swimming pools when it's actually just a shock response to being in water..
A lot of rabbits just don't want to be held at all, my old one was a cuddle on the ground only rabbit. xD
I held my bunny I had when I was 3, while sitting down. He didn't even like that xD He bit me once...but I was holding him for like, 3 hours so I think he was irritated. :P
