This is Herbert Von Frinkle. (All my pets get last names. My cousin also gives her pets last names, so it it hereditary. I am also aware it is silly.) He is now 10 weeks old and turning into a lovely little guy. Right? I have researched Angoras for 2 years. I went & met spinners who raised bunnies and settled on English for a few reasons. The curly ears got me at first, and to be able to pluck fiber rather than clip. I also have enjoyed spinning & knitting English fiber even before I met the rabbits. Blah, blah, blah. He seems to have great crimp, and his fur gets thicker & more wonderful everyday. I am very taken by his personality. He is just SO friendly. MUCH more so than I expected. He is very close to litter trained, aside from the occasional pellet (which I think is him marking his area, yes?) he is very good about hopping back to his box. He also LOVES to be groomed every day. He is very patient for the process (except his belly) and then hops like a goof all over the place, which I take to mean he is happy. He also LOVES to sit on our laps. He will run head first across the room when I am near the grooming area and hit my leg until I sit down. Then he hops on my lap & nuzzles my face. Is this "normal" rabbit behavior? I have his hutch on the breezeway - it has become a tradition to keep new additions there to quarantine them & get them used to us. I planned to move him to just outside the front door under the cedar bush on a raised platform. But, he really seems to prefer being here with us. Just looking for some input from other rabbit folks. He is an only bunny, but I have ducks and chickens and kids that keep me outside despite most winter weather. I am torn about what to do, move him out where I think cage maintenance would be easier, or keep him in where I think he could evolve into a good house bunny. He is VERY popular with the man of the house who spent about 15 minutes the other night showing me pictures of other English Angoras who are "nowhere near as cute as Herbert". Also, the yellow paws... He came home that way but ... is there a good way to clean them?
