1When did you last see a rabbit?
Have you ever owned a rabbit?
When was the last time you ate a rabbit?
I've never owned rabbit
I ate rabbit for the first time in about 30 years, on a date last April.
2. yes, they were called nibbles and munch. both escaped to their deaths. my only childhood pets.
3. can't remember but i have
watership down is the best british film ever btw
saw a dead one on thursday
never owned a rabbit, wasn't allowed a pet cause they were too expensive but my cousin had a house rabbit which was excellent
have never eaten rabbit although people round here go on about how they used to eat it during the war
actually might have seen a dead one again yesterday? not sure
2 weeks ago
my brother has rabbits. if I stay at his house he likes to wake me up in the morning by putting a rabbit on my face.
Heard us coming and ran away but straight into a wall and sat there confused. Fox food not long after.
yeh, right now... he's pretty old and will probably not last too much longer
dunno, not since we've had him, so a good 7 years i reckon
actually remember that two rabbits I owned died within a week of each other during winter :-(.
unknowingly ate rabbit (well before I owned any).
was in france (school French exchange) and the family I was staying with asked me Tu aimes le lapin? I thought they has asked tu aimes le pain, and what a terrible mix up and it turned out the rabbit in the stew was one of the cute wee things I'd been playing with the day before (they lived on a kind of farm) and I cried.
when we went for a drive in the country to see my sister's wedding venue.
Had two rabbits growing up. they lived outside in a hutch. We were led to believe they died of old age but it later transpired that a fox got them.
I had some nice saddle of rabbit at a client lunch about a month ago.
2. Yep,2, named Clover and Haystack (after two of the female rabbits in Watership Down). Two Dutch rabbits, one black and white, the other brown and white. They both died of old age and we buried them in shoeboxes under the lilac tree.
3. Back when I was a teenager. Caught and skinned it myself, too. Both sets of my grandparents used to breed rabbits for food as well.
2. Yes three - Jack (fox), Chocolate Drop (runaway), Galaxy (old age)
3. Can't remember but probably in a pie or something in the last 6 months or so
Picking our guinea pig up from the small pet hotel. There were at least four of 'em. One was looking for a new home. Felt a bit sad for not being able to take it on.
1b (not real): this morning at 10:46, a photo of a rabbit in a saucepan, emailed from Germany.
2. No. Have had pet goats, though, seeing as you didn't ask.
4. Your mum's, in a beaker of Dettol.
tell me please about the small pet hotel!!!
to hang out with other small creatures when the humans go away on holiday.
This is Pip:
that is kind of the cutest thing
She really looks after her animals so well.
1. A second before writing this.
2. Yes, several. Since I was about six I think. I got a pet rabbit last week. Her name is Fran. She's a bit weird. She follows me everywhere and I'm worried I'm going to crush her. She's super cute and fluffy though. She likes having her chin and cheeks stroked like cats do. Apparently she's a lion head cross or something. She's also a little on the destructive side, I've already lost two blankets, a shoe lace and a laundry bag >.<
3. Never, obviously. I would absolutely never eat rabbit or deer.
fran is technically a gerbil??
rabbits and chickens aren't covered by landlords' 'no pets' clauses if you're in a shorthand tenancy agreement.
would finish work at 4am and cycle home over t' fields, loads of rabbits running around, lovely little creatures. I don't believe in keeping an animal in a cooped up in a room when it ought to be living in the wild (extension of the fact that on some level, I wish I lived in the wild). However, a couple of years ago, I found a sick hedgehog and nursed her to health over the wintertime, letting her go off again in the spring was heartbreaking. I always keep my eye out for a wee rabbit that looks like it would be fucked if it lives in the wild any longer, that way I could bring it home in good conscience.
coming up close to my nose and saying hello
used to like eating Bourbon biscuits
but there are so many around here i'm not sure i'd remember
had 2 pet rabbits when i was a kid. one was a bit wild and used to roam free in the garden unless it was cold. i used to feed it bits of cadbury's caramel and malted milk biscuits, which in retrospect were probably really bad for it. what a waste of chocolate, i could have eaten that myself and fed it a carrot or something
last ate rabbit around may probably. would have it more often but my boyfriend doesn't like it and it's a bit fiddly to eat
I would quite like to get a pet rabbit when I move, but worry I would just make it depressed like when joey has that dog in friends
