I work in rabbit rescue and wish people would STOP "buying" rabbits. Go to your local shelter. In most places, shelters are bursting at the seams with bunnies that people buy and then discard when the "newness" wears off.

Buying bunnies only encourages pet stores and breeders to create more rabbits - even though there are thousands and thousands of rabbits dying in shelters.

RESCUE is the answer. Not a pet store. Even PETCO no longer sells bunnies because they recognize that it only adds to the overpopulation problem.

My sister-in-law bought 2 mini blue rex bunnies for my stepdaugther. She absolutley loves them. They are let out into a "play pen" that my husband made. It is a small garden area, and they love to jump and do kicks in the air. They are so soft, like velvet. All of our neigborhood kids love to watch them as they walk bye. They are the sweetest bunnies ever. One is named mittens and the other fluff. They bring a lot of joy to our family.

I bought two rabbits this summer and we were told they were girls. They sure looked like girls too. But due to some dfficulties we found they were boys. I am pretty sure they are mini rexs though, and they are wonderful and playful, no matter what they are.

I bought a mini rex from the local pet store a week ago. She is the sweetest thing ever! When I let her out of the cage she runs across the room doing crazy jumps!Anyone who wants to buy a rabbit and doesn't know what kind to get should get a mini rex. You will not regret it!

I have been raising Mini Rex rabbits for about 6 years now and I absolutely LOVE them! Their fur is the softest (other than the Rex's) that I've ever felt! People always come to us asking for lop eared rabbits and we used to have to say "we don't have lops... but come see these!" and they fall in love with them! We have been raising Rex rabbits for about 5 years now, and I'm just starting to raise Holland Lops. If you'd like to see our rabbitry the website is route66rabbits.tripod.com but we are known and registered as Me & Em's Rabbitry.

If her fur is not velvety, then it sure sounds like it might be a Californian.

I purchased a bunny from the pet store, being informed I was getting a mini rex. But after reading up on bunnies from this site, I'm not so sure. I think she looks just like a Himalayan, but doesn't have pink eyes. She's all white, except her feet and ears are like a faded grey and her nose is charcoal grey. She does not like to be handled. Where as the other mini rex I held at the store didn't mind. We choose her because she was the only female there. Anybody have any input on determining the breed of the rabbit.

I have a three year old mini rex named Jack, who I love to death! He so soft and sweet! If I bring him down to our living room, he will jump up on our small couch and it is then officially his! He loves to interact with people and when he's happy he'll run around and jump in the air doing crazy things! Mini rexes are an awesome pet to have!
