I own a mouse named Angelina from Petco. I'm only allowed to have a small rodent in an apartment, since I live in an apartment. I truly adore Hotot rabbits and have seen many of them at nice pet stores like Nick's Tropical Treasures Pet Store in Illinios. I really wish I could have a small bunny and I'm a kid and I know Hotot rabbits are AWESOME with kids! But I know I should be thankful for the cute adorable fancy mouse I have already. :)

My daughter's pet bunny (a Polish Dwarf) named Ben was a fixture in our family for four years. As far as bunnies go, he was a very gentle, laid back rabbit who loved people and would frequently run back and forth into his house whenever we were near to ensure he was noticed. One week ago he was very lethargic and stopped eating. We finally took him to the vet three days later and they gave him an IV drip for fluid loss and a shot for pain. My daughter came home with meds, instructions for feeding him and when he came home he indeed seemed better, more lively. He accepted water from a dropper and was even more active (which complicated things because we were told to keep him warm). He was eating food the morning after the visit but seemed to get progressively worse throughout that day and when we awoke Thursday morning, he had passed away. As a father, I felt my daughter's grief but I experienced my own sense of profound loss as my little friend who would hop around the floor at my feet soliciting attention and a scratch. We buried him in our garden and tears welled up in my eyes as I replaced the dirt in his grave. I will miss my daughter's pet; he quickly became a special and important part of our family.

    I know how you feel. I had a Polish Dwarf named Trevor. He was white, with the prettiest blue eyes. A friend gave him to me when he was about two. He died June 30, 2010 at the age of 13. I am 44 years old and it was hard for me to lose him. He was like Ben, very gentle and loving and loved to run around and play.

polish rabbbits are an awesome first rabbit. They love to run and if the live on the ground, they will dig out of the cage. my rabbit loves to lie in the grass all day long. she isn't afraid of the other animals at all!(I also have 2 big dogs and 2 cats) she loves to be held but she can be a little jumpie. she doesn't like it when more then a couple people are around, she gets all freaked out! they love to chew and they are very very smart. i did a test to see if she would go in a litter box. i put cat litter in her cage and her instincts told her to pee in the liter box. i highly recommed a polish rabbit for a pet!

My angora is a very nasty little pest. I just got her and she does not like to be held, touched, looked at and all she wants is to eat and sleep.

    Spend time bonding with your Angora. It may take several weeks. Look up @ google "How to carry your Angora Rabbit". Give it treats every day(Not too much). When it starts rubbing it's chin against you, then he/she accepted you into it's life!
    They are wonderful. Spend time with yours. Give it time.

    Perhaps you need to try getting some advice on how to handle her. Just a little change can yield big results. Rabbits do not like to be picked up. Maybe she is afraid, and hides from you.

    I found a young Angora rabbit a few months ago and never found her owners, so I found her a new home and I received a call today that the new owner wants to give her back because she is not friendly to her. She also said that she goes to the bathroom in her hutch where she sleeps. Now, I don't know much about this bunny because I found her in front of my house. What advice can be given to me? She put her in a hutch that was used by her previous rabbit. Could that be a problem? Is she not spending enough time with her? Should she be kept inside rather than outside? Any advice would be very appreciated!

How old will any Hotot have to be so you can breed, and how many bunnies will it have?

    Dwarfs Hotots rweach sexual maturity around 6 months of age and should be bred prior to being a year old. The average litter runs from 4 - 8 bunnies but it can take mom bunny a couple of liters to catch on and feed the babies so have puppy formula (Ebsilac) on hand and bottles.

I got my Lionhead from my boyfriend for our 4 yr. anniversary! I have never had an animal in my life (always wanted one but parents didn't allow)! I'm not sure what kind of breed he is but he is like a child to me. I named him Bentley! I love him to pieces! He is the sweetest thing ever and he is SO much fun to watch!

    Hi, I have a lionhead rabbit and I have had it for 4 years now and it is the cutest little rabbit you have ever seen. I love my rabbit to death and she knows me when I come in the room to let her out, she even comes when I call her. Her name is Smokey because she is a smokey color. She is very playful and enjoys doing her crazy hops around the room. I also have a lop ear rabbit and her name is Pepper because she is white with black spots. I've had her for 8 years and she sometimes get jealous if I come in the room and start talking to Smokey, she will start running up and down her cage stomping her feet until I go to her and talk with her and then will she calm down, but I love them both.

How Much Are Angora Rabbits And Where can I buy one from? I cant find one anywhere! (In England)

    Angora rabits seem to have a big price fluctuation going from $50 to $150. If you are in England, it would be best to find a breeder there. Quarantine laws and shipping can make the most affordable pet totally unaffordable. If you can't find a breeder in England - try another type of rabbit. The Rex people seem to love.
