br'er rabbit

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

It's been many years since I kept a rabbit as a pet. In my memory it was a totally agreeable experience. Unlike the dog, the black rabbit known as Frodo did not bark, jump or otherwise cause any disturbance.

They are gentle creatures and I've been told that some can be litter trained. My rabbit lived outdoors though, in a nice custom-built rabbit hutch. One rabbit is nice but two is dicey unless you know the sex.

If you look at the photo you will notice a definite tension in the woman's hand which tells me that she's not relaxed but alert to the fact that the rabbit may make a break for it at any moment.

You're right. She's definitely on alert for an escape!

Oh, I agree! Rabbits are very good pets. I kept one in the house and he was litter box trained. As long as you cleaned it out EVERY day ... it was okay.

They are very sweet animals.

What a beautiful rabbit!

If you keep one in the house, you should "baby proof" the area. Rabbits like to chew on things ;-)
