This is the only picture I have of Alfalfa. He is currently staying with some friends until I can find a place to keep him. He is medium size and the color of a wild rabbit. Sometimes, I wonder if he is a wild rabbit that somebody picked up as a baby. I have not found another rabbit so far that looks like him except for the rabbits I see loose wild in fields.
I got him from a neighbor in my apartment complex in Hayward. They decided that they could no longer keep him and were going to let him loose in the complex. I decided to take him, but I had never had a rabbit before. It was a quick learning process. I knew that rabbits could be litterboxed trained like cats. I started doing Internet searches and found some great resources. They told me about not using clay cat litter since it is toxic to rabbits. They gave the name of several brands to use. Luckily, my local pet store had a few of the choices, and I was able to pick the least expensive. I learned about the type of foods to feed him and about the type of vegetables he might like. His favorite is broccolli and carrots!
He is a very sweet rabbit with a big personality. I would like to get him a bigger habitat with space to run around and hopefully a rabbit friend if that is what he would like.
He and my cat, Mercury get along really well, and appear to have some interesting conversations. However, I don't let Alfalfa and Mercury loose in the same room because Mercury still tends to have "hunting" feelings take over him when Alfalfa is nearby.
