Happy Easter!

This is Hefner, our beautiful mini-lop rabbit. Before he became the "playboy" of the Pupek house, he served as a preschool class pet. The teacher planned to relocate and did not want to take a rabbit with her. She couldn't find a home for him and intended to leave him at the local animal shelter. Always willing to take in one more furry (or feathered or scaled) mouth to feed, we gave the bunny a new home and dubbed him "Hefner." What a doll he is, and spoiled. He loves dried cranberries and carrots--peeled, washed baby carrots of course!

If you think you'd might like a rabbit as a pet, please consider adopting a homeless one. So many children receive baby bunnies as pets, only to tire of an adult rabbit, resulting in neglected and unwanted animals. To learn more about having a rabbit as a house pet, read "The House Rabbit Handbook" or "Rabbits for Dummies."
If you have pets, remember that lilies and chocolates are toxic to them, and plastic grass found in Easter baskets can be a choke hazard and block intestines. Keep your critters safe and have a wonderful holiday!
