Talking Bunnies

Meet Penelope.
She enjoys hopping around the house at lightning speed.
She loves grapes and lettuce.
She loves being petted. She doesn't like to be picked up.
She begs for food, like a dog, but her begging is more like demanding.
Look what she did to my cereal:




She loves eating. Always... She seriously never stops:




:)

So cute! I love the close up :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

AW I love Penelope! <3<3 My bunny hates being picked up too. Better be careful with sugary treats like that cereal and milk!! Bunnies are lactose intolerant and although they'll eat it (my old mini-rex got into a bag of chips once) they should be carefully monitered to watch for any pooping/GI issues.
Just so you know.

She's so pretty <3

I don't use cow's milk.
I use almond milk, soy milk, and rarely coconut milk.

Any milk is still unsafe for bunnies. It's not required in their diet as adults. They should only get their pellets, water, hay and fruits/veggies. I don't know the science on why they shouldn't and she'll probably eat it and look okay but I would never risk introducing things like that to my rabbits.

Did I willingly give milk to my rabbit?
No.
Did I offer the cereal to Penny?
No.
I did not offer it to her because it was MINE and she had her own food in her cage which was open at the time. She gets excercise for hours at a time, and is in her pen at night or when we can't keep an eye on her.

She simply smelled something sweet, then jumped into my food bowl while I was on the couch.

I shoo'ed her away angrilly, thought for a minute, then decided to get the camera phone and took a picture of Penelope cleaning herself under the table.
:(


Penelope also has a tendency to chew on human hair while the humans aren't looking. Trust me, it has happened to me.
She has learned to leap into the refridgerator to steal food when we open it. We are currently finding ways to discourage this.
Today, she tried to dig the door to open the fridge.
She can open room doors.
She enjoys jumping on our chests while we slumber...

The cereal incident isn't the strangest antic she has done.

She sounds like quite the character!! (also, no need to push rudeness in my face. I was merely making a recomendation to keep milk products from her. I know what some rabbits are like bc I had one just like it! Thought she was starving! )

I tried having sleepovers in my rabbit proofed bedroom before but my old bunny pee'd on my pillow (woke up to it, pleasant...) and my current bunny does all her chewing at night so I couldn't sleep!!

Adorable bunny! Hehe, doesnt even look guilty :P Laki, you did sound a teensy bit offensive in your post, so I can see why the OP responded the way they did. You guys got each other all wrong xD
