Rex, our baby?


We think he is so cute. Rex cuddled up like a baby in Charity's arms when Aunt Susie came for a visit. Susie was petting him just right. Rabbits like to be gently pet on the head and jaw line.


He was in heaven with Aunt Susie caressing his face that he started....


sucking his paw!! He truly was! I had no idea that rabbits did that.


Warning!! If pet just right, rabbits may turn into suckling babies!

That is seriously the cutest thing I've ever seen. Possibly cuter than either of my kids!

Holly the rabbit is so cute. Scott wanted to know what kind of rabbit it was: dwarf, stew,coat? He is just kidding,but seriously what kind. I was not aware that rabbits responded to a humans touch in that manner either.
Love Kim

Kim,
He is a mini Rex rabbit and he is 3 years old. Rabbits don't like to be held but they are social animals. So, if you continue to hold them and pet them the way they like, than after time, they will put up with being handled a little more. They are often compared to cats but are not as social,cuddly or smart as cats. I know he is social because, we keep him the the open back yard at nights, when I go out, he will run circles around me to say hi. Than he follows me around the yard. SO CUTE! We love him.
