The chilled bunny – An extremely well behaved, laid back bunny. A very content & wise bunny, who behaves when you have guests round. Always happy to receive lots of head rubs & bunny kisses. Loves home comforts & keeps their home nice & tidy. Loves to nap & tends to fall asleep by the food bowl.
The social bunny – Always wants to know what is going on & likely to disturb you when you are sitting relaxing. Loves spending time with you, but will also gladly let you know when they want time away from you. Does love a fuss, but only when it suits them (usually when nothing else is going on). Can have mood swings & sulk, but doesn’t last long.
The bossy bunny – Never stops still, likes you to know that they are in charge, not you. Very hyper & always getting into trouble. Doesn’t take any notice of the word ‘No’ & usually runs off shaking his/her behind at you. Lets you know what they think of you by grunting or thumping at you. Constantly looking for things to do. Demolishes cardboard boxes in minutes & chasing birds makes them feel very proud of themselves.
