I have had rabbits for several years. And also raised them years ago for meat. Some of my rabbits are pedigreed and some are not. I started this last journey with angoras who I just love and adore. Due to problems with the nerves in my hands, I have had to place my angoras and move to breeds that require less grooming and no clippers. I thought that I could never find another rabbit that I would enjoy more than my angoras, BUT I have found that the love for rabbits is not breed specific. Just because they are hair impaired they can be just as great as my furry friends. I have also tried to go smaller, to make them easier to handle. I now have a more managable rabbitry for me. And I want to thank the people who have helped me get my rabbits into good homes. Especially drgnldy71 and patches. I know they will bring you just as much joy as they have brought me. But you all need to beware. Rabbitosis is not breed specific. In fact, it very breed contagious. I still have some meat rabbits. Just enough to keep us in meat. And I am raising and selling pets. Mostly minis. I will always have rabbits if possible. And you should also know that Rabbitosis is not a terminal disease, you can live a long and hoppy life. But you may find the need to keep buying cages. Never deny your disease, I can't. :rolleyes:

That's right, blame everything on your parents!!!! :p It will all come out in the therapy sessions, anyway. Now, I blame my grandmother for my love of agriculture and nature--hmmmm--- raising domestic rabbits is agriculture, so rabitosis is a GOOD thing to have..... :)
