Thank you every one foryour helpful feedbacks. :) My bunny is littertrained and he's quite consistent. Recently, whenever Ichange his litter, he would come examine the new litter, and thenintentionally pee pee outside the box, and drinks it. But thenext time he has to pee, he would go back to the litter box.It's very strange, I wonder if he's trying to send me a message? I wishI speak Bunny-ish, or Bunny-ese. :?

My bunny did that for a few days after she wasspayed. She was in pain, so I can understand that she didn't feel likegetting up to go to her box and instead peed wherever she was sitting.But then she turned around and started licking it >.< Shedid it a lot on one day in particular. I asked the vet assisstant andshe said that bunnies were very clean animals and she was probablytrying to clean up after herself. :dunno: Not sure if that's true ornot. Maybe it's a mystery.

He looks like a rex to me. What does his fur feel like? Is it very short and plush?

How much does your boy weigh? If he's about 3-4 pounds he's a mini, 6-7 pounds he's a standard.

His colour is REW (red eyed white).

Yes, his fur feels short and plush,velvet-like. He's about 6 lb. Thank you so much foryour information! Another question, a question I'm afraid toask: what's the age span of a standard rex?

:bunnydance:Yes yes, we wanted to say hi to Berri and Pebble =)
Thank you all for solvingFeichai's mysteries. At least I know he is a Rex now., and some bunniesdo lick their own urine. I'm yet to find out hisage! I had him for 3 1/2 years, and when I firstadopted him he was already the same size as he is right now, exceptthat he was skinnier back then.
That's my next mission !! :run:

Bun-Bun licks Cocoa's pee and eats his poop.Kinda nasty. But both my buns eat their own poop and pee as well. It'sa natual "item" they eat for their digestion.
