I have a black male Havana bunny his name is Magnum. He is so soft and very friendly and loveable. He shares his triple decker condo with his freind Maggie May. I'm not sure what breed she is but it was love at first sight with those two. Yes I got them both fixed. I wanted to let Maggie May have a litter of bunnies. But my boyfreind said no. They are both very spoiled bunnies. This is the first time I have had two at the same time. Maggie May kinda looks like a chinchilla. Does any one know what breed she might be? They're both soft and very playful and loving. Can't imagine life without them.

    There are so many mixes, that the only way to really find out is to trace her background, if you can.

We bought our lionhead in July 2009. We named her Chewey because she looked like Chewbacca. She died two weeks ago. She had a heart disorder and problems breathing. She was so much fun. She had a GREAT personality. The whole family enjoyed her and we miss her dearly.

    I just lost my little bunny today. I'm only 15 and Chloe was my first bunny. She was white, tiny and loved to be held. I had her for a short time. But I love her :(

    Yay, I'm getting a baby holland on March 26. A white doe.

    Actually I'm a crazy fan of holland lops! But I still have to tell you.:D It's harmful for Holland lops to breed, really really harmful. And the possibility for bunnies to survive is extremely low. Especially for us amateurs. Please separate them in different cages and cherish them.You can choose every kind of lops if you like, but for lops, they have no choice.

    If it's the rabbits first time not many will survive but the second time almost all of them will survive.

I had one holland lop. He was such a sweetie! He loved to hop around and play with me and my family. He died just a week ago. I recommend Holland lops above all other kinds of rabbits as pets. They are the sweetest creatures and are so cute! I loved my rabbit Ginger very much.

    I had a holland lop. Mine was a family member. I cry every day. He died and i am still confused why. We had him 8 yrs 5 mos. from someone else and don't know how old he really was. How old was yours and what did it die from?
  • Hannah - 2014-02-14
    You are extremely lucky to have had a rabbit that lived to 8 years, mine died at four years old. I can tell you cared for your bunny immensely and I am as well very sad that yours died. I know it isn't a different amount of pain you feel about your rabbit since he lived longer, but I am glad that it got an extra four years to be happy on earth then in bunny heaven.

My four year old white holland lop (with blue eyes) passed away about three weeks ago. Her name was Bella! I got her when I was ten and she has been such a joy over the years. I would walk home from school and I would go through my backyard to her hutch and pet her and cuddle her. She was always there for me and I was so sad that she left me so early. She had become thin over a short period of time so we decided to take her to the vet. They told us to give her some medicine and we did because maybe it was an infection (something about the stomach because she wasn't pooping). About a week later she wasn't doing any better so my mom was going to take her to the vet with my dad. I spent a lot of time with her over that week and cuddled her whenever I got the chance. I knew she was in pain and my parents went to the vet without me but told me there was a high chance that she would have to be euthanized because she was suffering (she could barely walk anymore:( ) I was so upset and didn't realize it was the end so I didn't say a full goodbye and that was it. She is gone forever and I miss her so much. I want her back so bad and every time I go outside by her hutch I cry. She wasn't like any other rabbit because she loved to be held and cuddled and loved to eat and play and run around in the grass and she was the cutest rabbit ever! I looked up so many times how old they would live and I was absolutely positive she would live up to at least eight years old because she was so healthy! I guess it never turned out that way and I miss her like crazy. R.I.P Bella

    I'm so sorry to hear about your bunny. That is very sad, but at least she isn't hurting anymore. I'm glad you got a good 4 years with her!

Hiya I have a week old baby skinny pig, her skin is really dry and bumpy. It doesn't seem like normal dry skin, as she is covered in tiny raised bumps! Any help or advice?!

    Skinny pigs still have hair follicles, and usually become rather 'fuzzy' as they mature. I'm guessing this is what they are. As long as she is eating and acting normal, I wouldn't worry to much.

The rabbit named Bob in the photo is not a New Zealand rabbit. New Zealands are always solid-colored, either black, white, red, or very rarely, gray. But they are never mixed colors. That is either a mixed-breed rabbit or some other breed entirely.

    There are such things as mixed colors if you're in the ARBA.

    It was great of the person to share his bunny too, it's very adorable!

I bought my daughter two male rats late July 2013, one hairless which was 1 month and a white one which was 3 months. Took them to the vet 2 weeks later once I found a vet that took exotic pets. They got a clean bill of health. On Thursday around 5pm I went to do my daily cleaning of the cage, change the liter pan daily and feed them and fresh water, I notice the hairless which is Rascal was just laying in his hut. This is not normal for him because we call him our hyper boy. He was cold as ice, tried warming him up with heating pad and took him to the vet on Friday. The vet couldn't tell if he had phenomena she would have to get an x- Ray and she said that was not a guarantee account of rats can't hold there breath and he is to sick to sedate. So she gave me medicine for Rascal that was sick and for Ratouille to take as well for 2 weeks. Rascal died Saturday 2/1/14 and my daughter was so upset. I put him in the cage for his buddy to see he had passed but he didn't seem to care he just wanted out to play. Ratatouille is showing no signs and I am a little bit worried on getting another friend for him because I don't want him to get sick. I am not looking to have Rats forever, thought this would be a great first pet for my daughter . If I get a young rat I would be facing with that one being alone after Ratatouille passes and if I try to get an older rat and they don,t get along then I am face with 2 rats being alone. I have the critter nation 3 story cage which I can pull up one of the ladders and it turns out to be 2 cages. So my question is what would be the best for ratatouille with out investing in another cage and can I quarantine in the bath room tub? Please help.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Rascal, a tradgedy for you all. It sounds like your vet wasn't sure what the problem was, so I would probably give Ratouille a couple of weeks before I introduced another friend, if you decide to do that. It could be that he is fine. They are very social and do like a companion. They also have a short life-span, 2-3 years, so that's the length of time you would have these pets.

    Thank you, he is on the meds for 2 weeks. What age of a new male should I try to introduce to an 8 month old? Ratatouille is very friendly and playful.
