I am a Holland Lop rabbit, and I was born in the early part of 2009. I don't remember exactly when my birthday was, so I just go by what my parents tell me. I was born so that I could be sold as an Easter bunny at a pet store. I don't remember much about my brothers and sisters, or my rabbit family. It's hard to think back that far.
I do remember that I was in a pet store for a while, and I didn't like it. There were lots of other young rabbits there with me, and it was fun to be with them. But I got picked up a lot by people who didn't know that I don't like that.
I ended up in a little kid's Easter basket, at least that's what I think it was called. Again, it's hard to remember back that far, and it wasn't a very nice time. I was picked up a lot, even dropped a couple of times. It made me scared. So, I won't talk about that part.
After a long while, I was dropped off at the animal shelter. I didn't like it there, either. One day, close to Christmas, I met my Mom and Dad. They put me in Mom's arms, and it felt really nice. She was very gentle and kind, I could tell. So was Dad. They talked softly to me, and I wasn't as scared with them.
They brought me home and showed me my new room! It was a big place compared to what I was used to. It took a little while to be comfortable there, but it was so nice to have a real family!
