I had a phone call yesterday from an elderly woman who asked me if I would take the Angora rabbit she could no longer care for because of her deteriorating health. Of course, I said yes. I expected him to be a mess (based on past experience) ...but he is not. He is a well cared for and very sweet bunny and his name is "Mr. Big".
The lady was very happy I could take him...she was afraid a non-angora person wouldn't know how to take care of him. I was touched by her gratitude (and felt a little sad too).
I think he is a tort, but he has steel grey tips on his fiber! Annette? Lisa?
He loved being groomed and fell asleep upside down on my lap. Welcome, Mr. Big.
