Oooo No! Toasty-the-mini-rabbit something or other (there’s a name for this breed, I just don’t know what it is) has just learned she’s an unproductive pet! Oh.. the horror!
What she lacks in productivity she more than makes up for in adventure and charm. I had no idea miniature rabbits can climb stairs, cat towers, and scale kiddie barricades like Marines at boot camp. In fact, the only way to keep Toasty in one place is to lock her in a cage. And even then I’m not entirely sure she isn’t going to figure out how to unlock the cage. The house bunny is wildly entertaining.. although I’m not sure how the husband is going to feel about a rabbit rampaging through the house.
The white angora lacks the house bunny’s personality and charm, but more than makes up for it in fiber production. And while the lamb is producing perfectly luscious fiber, getting the fiber off the lamb is going to be much more of a rodeo than getting the fiber off the bunny. Which may explain why one farm is transitioning from sheep to rabbits. We’ll see. I’m still very fond of my sheep!
