hello! i have 1 mini rex rabbit, as well as 4 other mix breed rabbits. My mini rex is a male and is named Nubs. i love him so much! i even call him my little baby! i let him have the run of the house and he follows me every where. he will also come when he is called (most of the time =D). Nubs also loves to play with the cats, sometimes i belive he thinks he is one. i also have an outdoor pen thats huge (its meant for dogs) that i filled with obstacles for him to play in. his favorite treat happens to be broccoli. i feel bad because he's a tinsy bit heavy, so i give my other bunnies treats-but not him. :( Nubs isnt a show rabbit yet, but i'm getting him tattooed in september. the people i got him from used to show him in 4-h shows. this saturday something terrible happened to him, he stopped eating and drinking-completely. today i looked in his mouth and it looked like that his top teeth over grew the bottom ones though he had many chew toys. i couldnt get him to eat, but thankfully he did drink. Nubs is going to the vet. i did some research and i believe that maybe a simple trimming could cure this but pray that he'll be all right. i've already lost many other rabbits i had! thank you!

I have a mini rex rabbit, Velvet. Her color is called a Lynx. They are great rabbits for pets or for show. Velvet is a show rabbit. She does good at the shows. They are little rabbits, Velvet weights 4 pounds and she's an adult. Once you touch their coat, you fall in love. Their coats feel like plush velvet, that's how she got her name. Easy to take care of. Very little grooming is required. Mini Rex are great rabbits. I love Mini Rex.

I have a mini rex and a dutch. Great pets, fun to play with and to watch. My rex, Nibbles, recently came down with a GI health problem. I took her to the vet as soon as i noticed she wasn't eating or dropping any nuggets and laying around more then usual. The vet took xrays and had us syringe feed her. Xray showed an obstruction and kidney stones. After another xray and no change in Nibbles health, i found another vet. This dr. specializes in exotic animals. He took a different approach on treating her. He thought the kidney stones were causing her pain and not allowing her to pass anything. After a three night stay in the hospital, blood work, more xrays, fluids and different meds, i got my Nibbles back. Please, when you get your rabbit, find a local vet who treats exotic pets. If i kept treating Nibs with the first vets treatments, i would have lost her. She is on her way to a full recovery! She is very loved, and Smokey is happy to have her home.

I have a mini rex named lola bunny. she is the calmest bunny in the world. she comes when i call her, she follows my feet when i walk, and she goes everywhere with me. she thinks she is a cat though, because i have three and they always play with her. she loves to sleep with my rottweiler and my shepard-lab mix. she is very loving and gives me kisses a lot!

I got a mini rex rabbit named Midnight. He lives under the rocking chair in the living room. He likes to watch tv and kicks people off the couch literally. He just loves my dad lol XD. He gets back at my dad when they play sometimes. We take good care of him and take him outside a lot on the porch. He is the best pet I have had so far ^^

I have a Mini Rex, her name is Checkers. We adopted her from our x-stepcousins, who had adopted her from a different place. Both neglected her. She is white with black spots. She runs around the whole house and is extremly happy in her new home. Checkers is now 3yrs old. She loves my mom. Checkers follows us all around the whole house and hates when we are gone. she loves attention and is a wonderful family member.

I have one mini rex rabbit that I have had for about four years and she has brought so much joy to me. I show and breed them so I am constantly doing stuff for her. I have several other breeds but the mini rex is by far my favorite breed because of their all around disposition. They are very intelligent and are very lively.

I have a Mini Rex rabbit and he is very sweet and likes to be petted. I am thinking about putting him in the 4-H fair next year. Right now mine is still a baby. I hope he will grow up to be a very healthy rabbit.
