My parents built a house out in a new sub-division in my small town.

Lots of baby bunnies were abandoned by the mom in our window wells.

My sis and I bought baby doll bottles, plenty in those days because of the "Wetsy Betsy" doll.

We fed them milk, and green stuff.  Dad built a pen.

Sadly, a dog and cat (cats could roam free then) got into the pen, and killed all but two bunnies.

My sis and I fed those two till they were big and healthy enough...then released them.

I know at least one made it in adult life, as it was scarred around the eye from the dog and cat attack (we took it to a vet), and its eye scar was obvious. Came back and built a next in our yard every year ... made me very happy to see her.

Yes, I had a pet bunny when I was a kid.

The kids had rabbits when they where little.  Not had any since then.

No I do not have a rabbit for a pet, but I have about 4 or 5 of them running around my yard all year long.

Between my youngest daughter and myself, we have had about 5 bunnies.  They can be great pets with sweet, cuddly, playful personalities.  However, one thing some people may not know is that not all of them have pleasant personalities.  Occasionally, there can be one that is nasty and even rather vicious.  We bought one as a very small baby...all white, darling, looked like a little fuzzy Q-tip.  A snowball!  However, after she got to about 4 months old, a different personality emerged.  Let's just say she growled at you at times when you tried to get her out of her cage and was the only bunny who bit me and drew blood.  Her personality began to settle down once she got fixed but I was always a bit distrustful of her and ended up giving her to someone.

No I've never had one but I think they are absolutely adorable! :) Maybe one day but I'm kind of on the fence about it. They're a lot of work and some aren't friendly and chew everything.

We had one for years. We had him outside in a really large cage that was on the ground. He dug a big whole underneath   an old dog house and I think he was pretty happy living there. He also had a big tree in his pen with lots of shade.

No, but my cousin did when we were younger.  I've only had fish, I hope to get a puppy next year.

No, I don't have any pets but these are interesting stories about them.  I have rabbits running around in my back yard along with a few other animals but that's it.

I have never had a rabbit as a pet but my youngest grand daughter has one and she is 28 years old.  Hope everyone has a good day and keep you safe. :)
