PAWS (Protection of Animals in Wakefield Society) is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal welfare organization serving several communities north of Boston.
Sniff, sniff, sniff ... hello nice person. My name is Lilo and I am a one-year-old mini lop eared bunny who really likes people. And people seem to like me, too. I guess it is because I am quite cute with my hanging ears, beautiful harlequin markings, and sweet, twitchy, bunny nose. Rabbits just don’t get much cuter than I am, if I do say so myself. You might think I am a bit biased. But really, I am just a very happy and social boy who enjoys life and dreams of a wonderful home.
So, you are asking yourself: Why do I need a bunny in my life? Well, I am just a bundle of pure joy. My favorite thing to do is to stick my nose out of my cage and ask to be patted. Whenever anyone is around, this is what I do. I also like to play. There are toys in my cage and I throw them around in fun. When they let me out into a room, I love to hop around. I can be quite energetic. So if you were to adopt me, you could build me all kinds of fun mazes and boxes and I could hop around in them. I would like that because the other thing about me is that I love to explore. Put me down and I will check out the entire place, sniffing and hopping and inspecting the room.
When I am not hopping, exploring, and playing, I enjoy relaxing. I love to be stroked and petted, as I already mentioned. And you can pick me up. While sometimes I can be wiggly (as bunnies often are), at other times I just melt into your arms. I think I would do that more and more once we got to know each other.
I feel I am a lucky bunny to be at PAWS. I was found wondering on the street and that is not a safe situation for a pet bunny like me, especially a young one. PAWS took me in and concluded that I was certainly someone’s pet because I am litter trained. No mistakes for me. Anyway, that is a silly thing to discuss. More importantly, I want you to know that if you see me asleep with twitchy ears, it is because I am dreaming of having my own people and my own home forever, and ever.
If you are looking for a bunny, I am your guy. And if you never thought about adopting a bunny into your life, think about it now. You could not do better than me. I am the best rabbit around, so let’s meet and discuss our future. My nose is already twitching in anticipation.
