Platypusstar had a great idea of a thread talking all about Holland Lops. I thought I would borrow the idea and ask all the mini rex owners out there....what am I in for?

I had a mini rex female last time, and I was a college kid. I basically crate trained her... She was out in the apartment all the time, except for occasional times when I was worried about too many people in the apartment and her getting stepped on, when she went in her cage. She was highly opinionated, noisy, and a thief. Too cute for words.

But I want to hear from mini rex owners if what I experienced is the norm, and what else I can expect from my new male mini rex. I've never owned a male before, for one thing, and I'm sure I've forgotten many wonderful mini rex traits!

Share! Please!

i've just realized that the title is 'mini' not 'standard'. oh well having just being given the runaround by my darlings i'll post anyway 100% bunitude. mine have being chilling with meall day. i decide to clip their nails. the little mindreaders hide. undeterred daughter and i stick to our guns. bunnies think it hilarious to hare around the garden stopping every now and then to groom with that smug look on their whiskers. to add insult to injury hartleybun dug in the damp mud and covered me in mud and bunny fluff. which he know makes my eyes itch...

still, for all they put me thru i wouldnt be without them and they know it

LOL sounds like they are all attitude! I love the idea of the "smug" look.

HAHAHA! ATTITUDE! Digging/aka fluffin' is their favorite chore. When they flop it's ok if it amuses you, but don't disturb them......



PLAY WITH ME! SO smart are these little guys! Bo loves to play and to be challenged..... get some baby stacking cups and see if you can get Poe to stack them with you.

Don't forget tho, they are pretty agreeable at times... as long as it includes cheek rubs, ear rubs, and lovin'...

I think a lot of bunnies like to dig but it's very very important to Bo..... it's serious business when he's fluffing a blankie and if you help and do it wrong...... you can just see his frustration but then he's like an old man and enjoys being the only one who knows JUST how to fluff..... lol.

My cousin had a mini rex who, when you petted his back would lick you non-stop! He was so sweet and loveable and I actually had a chance to take him home but he wasn't neutered and Domino wasn't spayed. Last thing I needed was babies! I wish I would have though.

They are so sweet most of the time..... Bo lets us pet him and hold him for hours. I usually have him in my lap while I watch tv at least one evening each week. He likes the recliner.....
