My daughter is going into 2 digits next week. Cant believe she is going to be 10!!
She has always wanted a pet she could cuddle - we have only ever had goldfish! So when a friend asked if she would like to hamster-sit for a week, we decided it would be a good opportunity to see if she was actually interested enough to get involved properly.
Anyway, I am glad that we did! Yes, she was really committed but whenever she went to play with the hamster.............it was asleep! So we decided, yes she could have a pet but that we would have a rabbit instead. When I was young I had 3 rabbits and then around 11 at one point when 2 of them had babies! So I know a bit more about rabbits than hamsters!
Anyway, we bought a hutch from e-bay and just went to LOOK at the rabbits. We werent going to buy as it was just before we went on our short break to Suffolk and it wasn't her birthday yet. But of course she fell in love with one of them, then on our return the shop had sold out of rabbits totally!
So now that we were in the mode of buying, we called in at another petshop and they had some lion head rabbits that were 6 weeks old and that dont grow to much bigger than a dwarf rabbit (which is what we wanted)
So meet Cocoa.............
Chocolate is my daughters favourite food, we got her just before Easter and she is a brown colour - so Cocoa seemed an ideal name!
She is just a lovely ball of fluff! She likes being handled - which is good but is also really inquisitive and loves to zoom around, 100 miles an hour when we let her out! The only thing is - she also likes to nibble our shoes and my jeans for some reason!
