Valentine, our 5 year old rabbit is too hot outside in her hutch. She is in her temporary quarters in my craft room where we have another cage for her. We bring her in when it is really hot, or when it is freezing outside in winter.
She is allowed to run free inside for some exercise under our watchful eye and with gentle herding by Willie our Shelti. Don't worry, we don't leave her out alone!
Val can jump on the couch and onto our laps. Then down again. If she is nervous or startled she will make a loud thump on the floor and scurry away!
Why have a rabbit? Well she too has her job around our house. The plants are treated to rabbit pellets to enrich the soil. Valentine is not the cuddliest bunny, but she is ours and we love her!
She was a gift from my daughter on Valentine's Day.
