I have a bonded pair of mini-rexes. They are so cute they put me into an adorableness coma. Seriously, they are great pets and loads of fun! They are small and very active little buns! While they do not care much to be held, they are very affectionate.; my male, Cashew gives me kisses and sometimes won't stop and my female, Hazel is very sunggly. One thing to make sure of is proper diet... I have had to take Cashew to the vet on a few occassions as min-rex shed a lot and develop fur balls. Make sure they get unlimited timothy hay, fresh greens (check out the house rabbit society online for a list), and pellets that are high in fiber (I buy Oxbow). Also, Oxbow carries papaya tablets that are good for hairballs... you can also buy cat laxatives such as Laxatone, but do not use both! Good rabbit vets are hard to find!! :)

I have loved and enjoyed my Mini Rex. Unfortunately I had to put him down in January after being part of our family for 9 1/2 years. He did not like to be held at all, it was a challenge getting him in his carry cage to go to the vet. He loved carrots and begged for them everytime the refrigerator door would open. He loved to have run of the house and would run figure 8's if you stood with your legs apart. He loved to be pet on the fur between his eyes. He was the best, lovable rabbit.

I have a black mini rex rabbit named Maya. She is very affectionate, but will not stand to be picked up or held. She is still a sweet bunny and has become a great part of the family. Each rabbit has a specific temperament. She is just like a dog, i take her for walks, tie her up, she comes when called, and has her own carrier.

About 3 weeks ago, this cute little rabbit, hopped onto my porch during a storm and followed my 8 year old daughter around all day. We did not know if it was wild or not, but she was sure friendly. I took her to my friend who has about 7 rabbits, several are rex's. She confirmed that "Princess" was a rex bunny. She was so cute and loveable, and calm! She would sit on my daughter's belly for hours. Sadly, on Sunday morning (07/16/06), when she went to get Princess, she had found that she died. I had a rabbit many years ago as a kid, but this rabbit was very different. Content, loving, and easy to care for. We're definitely going to get another "Princess". Even thought we had her for only 3 weeks, she 'touched our hearts and lives' and seemed to be an excellent pet for a young child to love and care for.
