Jersey was returned to Rabbit Rescue in Dec. of 2016, through no fault of his own. He was adopted out a number of years.
Jersey is a super friendly bunny. He enjoys exploring the home and hopping around. He really enjoy being gently brushed with your hands.
Food LIkes: Kale/Kale Stems, Dandelion, Parsley, Cilantro, Romaine Lettuce, Apples, Bananas, Timothy Hay
When he hears the rustling of food bags, he’ll come running from wherever he is, and start climbing your legs with excitement.
Jersey doesn’t enjoy being picked up, however, if he is picked up a certain way, he appears to be calm, and he tolerates the affection.
Jersey is completely litter trained. The only time he will not poo/pee in his litter bin is if he is anxious or stressed.
Jersey calms easily with relaxing music, such as Celtic flutes.
Jersey is very social with children as well. He may become intimidated by loud sounds, but for the most part, he seems to gravitate towards the affection.

TORONTO – They’re cute and fluffy and they make great Easter gifts for kids.
But animal rights groups are warning parents to stay away from buying pet rabbits as an Easter novelty, because a few weeks later, the small animals typically end up abandoned.
