dislikes:
~ the pee stench/cleaning their boxes
~ when they decided they liked my new air mattress so they poop-marked the heck out of it and I came back to find a pile of FIFTY poops on my sheets. that's mine, darn it!
~ when they wait for me to turn off the video camera and then do something insanely cute/when they insist on finding adorable poses while the camera is in the other room
~ they keep chewing up the condo I made for them, the brats!
~ when Nala doesn't want to eat her veggies (which is almost always) :pssd:

likes:
~ getting "groomed" by Nala
~ waking up to find myself nose-to-nose with a bunny
~ binkies/bunny 500s
~ how cute they are eating baby food from a syringe
~ any chance I get to show them off to people
~ how unoffensive their poop is (cecals aside, and even those pale in comparison to dog/cat poop)
~ Gaz's classic dead bunny flops

I didn't feel like counting to three :p

Likes:

1) She's ADORABLE
2) She seems receptive to my mood and responds to it
3) When it's done right, they can be VERY inexpensive to keep

Dislikes:
1) I have hay ALL OVER my room, I have to vacuum all the time
2) As a tech geek, the process of hiding electrical cords and such is a long, excruciating process
3) In my area they are seen as livestock and not pets, so people tend to think negatively of me when they find out I have a rabbit living in my room that I don't plan on breeding or consuming. She's SPAYED? CALL 911.

1) Chewing non-bunny items, like carpet, cords and books.
2) They are tough to bond unless they choose their mate.
3) It's tough to find a super snuggle-loving rabbit.

Likes:

1) They are all individuals with their own traits and antics.
2) They are smart as far as training and bonding.
3) They come in all shapes, sizes and colors to fit any desire!

Your response kind of gave me a chuckle because I thought that MOST rabbits loved to cuddle.

I was very lucky with cuddling rabbits. All three of the rabbits that I've ever had loved to cuddle. So , I assumed that most rabbits like to cuddle.

So I started a thread called "Who has a rabbit that doesn't like to cuddle. "
http://www.rabbitsonline.net/view_topic.php?id=72367&forum_id=1&highlight=cuddle+like+does+not

The responses to that thread really suprised me.

oh, and I forgot about nose bonks from Gazzles! I kinda both like and dislike those, though... I like 'em 'cause they're cute but dislike because if I try to pet her after she bonks me, she runs away :(

1) They're adorable. I mean really, as a whole they are just too cute and even at worst you would say not as cute but never ugly.

2) Its relaxing watching them go about their day (unless they are up to bad behavior).

3) They're not cats or dogs. I'm somewhat allergic but mostly I think a rabbit isnmkre my style then the other too.

Dislikes

1) Soft Poo: Their bunny dropping are fine, but my rabbit likes to sit on his uneaten cecals and smear them. What a pain to clean.

2) Chewing books. All other thing I can handle, but c'mon not the precious books!

3) Not affectionate enough. It could just be my Conan's personality, or maybe he hasn't bonded with me yet or a neutering is in order, but I just want a little more out of him.

Dislikes:
~Noise (I've disliked this with any cage-dweller I've kept, but someday I hope to have Monty mostly open-cage)
~Nose bonks to the kidney. Yeah really, Monty gets me in the most uncomfortable spots sometimes when I sit in her way!
~I'm not used to the skittishness of a prey animal compared to, say, my old kitty. I'm really glad I ended up with a Flemish though, since they seem to be a little more sure of themselves
~The many misconceptions about pet rabbits and how to take care of them! I'm so happy I happened upon this forum right before I got Monty.

Likes:
~Nose bonks everywhere else
~The way she washes her face
~Binkies!
~The way she crosses her front feet when she stands up for veggies

Likes:
1) I love to watch them, particularly when they eat or play
2) Bunny love, to each other and towards me (kissies are teh best but I like nose bonks too)
3) They exude pure emotion, they are so very expressive. When they are happy it is the personification of joy, when angry they can be frightning, when jealous watch out. You never have to question where you stand with a bun though.

Dislikes:
1) Poop wars!
2) vet bills
3) people think I'm nuts- no, I'm bunn-centric!

Dislikes:
1. Cleaning litter boxes and smelly urine.
2. Callie is extremely LOUD and thumps and grunts all day in her cage when she's not throwing her dishes around. The noise she makes alone, could get me complaints from my neighbor.
3. Malocclusions - having to get Crush's teeth trimmed every month and the cost of Vets for rabbits.
I have more than three!
4. Crush's fur when he's shedding. It's like husky fur and my asthma reacts to it every time I clean his cage.
5. Hay ending up all over the place and being a general PITA.
6. That I own a Beagle and can never safely leave them together.
7. That Calypso is still learning she can trust me and doesn't yet. I don't think she will ever be a bun that cares for the companionship of humans. She prefers other buns.

Likes:
1. Crush is a cuddle-bug and LOVES to cuddle. He's bonded with me and tries to groom me, will fall asleep on me, etc. It's great therapy.
2. Binkies!
3. That Crush will come up to the bars of his cage, expectant of affectionate nose rubs when I walk into the room.

LOVES (because I can't just 'like' things about bunnies):
1. Petting them is a huge stress reliever.
2. Binkies!
3. Their crazy excitement over food and treats.

Dislikes:
1. The hay (I think I'm mildly allergic to it).
2. Shedding (bunny hair everywhere).
3. Carpet digging.

Likes:
- They're so adorable - all the time!
- Binkies when I come home, and for mealtimes
- Teaching them tricks

Dislikes:
- I can't even really think of anything, aside from having to find someone to care for them if I want to go out of town. I enjoy cleaning the litterboxes and making them happy. They are super well behaved house buns (no digging/chewing). I wish they were snugglier... but otherwise they are so wonderful!
