I can answer questions about rabbit care, especially rabbit grooming, body language,
training, and feeding. I don't breed rabbits, but I rescue and foster them, which may be
helpful to some people who have questions about that. When I got my first rabbit,
Couture, I spent months researching and reading all I could about rabbits and everything
they do, including their relations to the wild rabbits you can still see today.
I don't condone rabbit breeding, especially for food, fur and pet stores, and cannot answer questions about that. I have also experimented with several brands of rabbit toys, foods and can give opinions on most products, good and bad. I know about lops the most, including special grooming and ear maintenance. One not very useful thing I can also answer questions about is rabbit history, and their involvement in human history, in case you've heard anything about it you want to make sure is true.
What I do MOST is examine the BEHAVIOR of rabbits. I relate it to breed, treatment, food, stress, and several other important factors in a rabbit's life. I have had the most experience with lops.
Remember to watch the HEAT! Summer is here and coneys don't like to be in over 80 degree weather!
My friends and I adopt rabbits from shelters in Orange County (can you believe there is only one other rabbit rescue group here?) and find them homes with loving families. We know how a rabbit can completely affect a person's views on life and they are very loving and smart critters.
I also volunteer at local shelters and contact and help with the other rescue group where I live. I keep lops as companion animals and have gone through my share of emergency situations, especially as a new owner. I wish your rabbit a happy and healthy life like mine have had.
RabbitRights, website coming soon. It sounds like an animal rights group, but the rights it talks about is the right to a home and to be treated kindly. Its just a group of teenagers now, but we are saving rabbits as I speak!
I'm 15, so you could say, 10th grade.
