I have never, EVER felt anything as soft as a Rex rabbits fur. If only they would let you cuddle them more! I was going through some of my grandmothers old things, and we found a winter coat, trimmed in Rex fur. I nearly started crying. My mini-Rex is the reason I will NEVER wear fur.

Even though this is a small breed, they need just as much space as the larger bunnies. They are just bursting with energy, and love to tear around the room doing the Bunny-500. My friend just adopted a pair, and they are just the cutest things. They are not really good for small children as they are not as sturdy (they can be easily hurt) or mellow as some of the larger breeds may be.

It makes me sad to here that these rabbits are often given as Easter presents. I was given a Polish Dwarf when I was eight years old, and little Oliver was not even weaned yet! He was very weak and very sick, but no one told me how to take care of a rabbit. Polish Dwarves are very small, very good little escape artists, and one night Oliver managed to get out of the bin he was in and under the bedroom door. The cat bit him (luckily, my mom heard the commotion), but the stress and subsequent infection killed Oliver in less than 12 hours. I was devestated. Please, DO NOT EVER give anyone a rabbit (even if it is your own child) unless you know they will be going to a good forever home. (www.rabbit.org)

I have an adorable holland lop named baby. She is so gentle and sweet and loves being held like a baby. She is very affectionate as well. She licks you when shes happy (which is almost all the time), and when she wants to mate with our other rabbit or wants to go outside, she barks. She has long fluffy fur that is white and carmel. She has little brown tips on her ears and a little bit on her nose. She actually looks very much like a smores. She is very docile and is just like a dog. Rabbits are not boring at all, especially holland lops. She also gets along great with our dog. They cuddle up together on the couch with me while I am reading and never fight. I love her so much! I would definitely suggest a holland lop as a pet to those who have the time and patience.

I got a holland lop last year for christmas from my sister! She is adorable!! She is all black and her name is Zoe. I keep her in a medium sized cage in my room but i let her out on the floor in my house to run around. She is now trained to not use the floor as a bathroom so i let her out more often. She is the most frendliest, nicest rabbit ever!!

Hey Guys, I thought I would share my experience as a caregiver of two raccoons. My first was a little female. One afternoon, after getting home from work. My wife and I found our Cocker Spaniel sitting at the front door waiting for us. As we approached the house we could hear the cries of a small animal. Nestled between his legs was a baby coon, her eyes were still closed. We took her in and checked her for injuries and found her to be healthy and strong. My wife and I have raised several animals from infancy and knew that raising her would require a lot of dedication. We already had feeding bottles and syringes and most everything needed to feed her. Time has taught us that mammals do very well on a mixture of warmed evaporated milk, natural honey and water. This needs to be given every two hours until its eyes have opened, or at about the age of five or six weeks. At that time strained baby fruits can be added for extra nutrients. Once the pup is strong enough you can add mixed baby cereal. I hear from other people that they wean their pup at about eight to ten weeks of age. But I have found that you can provide a bottle as long as it will suckle it. Believe me they will let you know when its not wanted. You will find that your pet will be truly bonded to you for the rest of its life. We bath our coons on a regular basis and found that they look forward to the cleanup. Our raccoons enjoy their time with the dog and cats but really look forward to spending time with us. They are very loving and love to cuddle. But given the opportunity to wrestle, they will play just as hard as we play back. Raccoons are very intelligent and can learn basic commands and words. Do not be afraid to say NO. Even though they use their hands with great dexterity they tend to lick and nibble. This is one of those times for the NO word. Also as soon as they start eating solid foods you need to help it get over aggressive eating habits. I have found that if you hand feed them and make a game out of carefully taking the morsels back, that you will be able to retrieve anything you do not want chewed up without any problems. Our female is about eight years old and the male is about four years of age. I am not sure that either one of them have an aggressive bone in them, but when in public we have to be careful. Both have worn a harness since they were about eight weeks old and have learned to walk on a leash. When in public or the vets they wear a mussel just to be safe. They are both registered and get their shots each year. Coons are not for everybody. They require a lot of care, patience, and attention. But the time invested is rewarding in itself.
