Good morning to Sir Jennedy and my fellow friends. Today I would like to talk about my pet. Since I was 17,I adopted a baby rabbit that I named Unni. She was a female rabbit. I named her Unni because I am a Korean drama fans, and in Korean sister were called ‘unni’, so I named her Unni. She was brown in colour and I bought her at Beaufort Farmer’s Market. When I bought her, she was still a baby. Actually, I bought her after I finished my SPM examination, and I felt bored at home, so I was thinking to adopt a pet to overcome my boredom. Since I was having no experience how to adopt a pet before, so I just do the basic care for her.
For instance, i gave her animal foods that I bought in the supermarket, I took care of her stools and I even gave bathe to her. But suddenly, when my cousin, whom also adopts a rabbit, came to my house one day, she told me that actually rabbit cannot be bathing. I was puzzled at first, how come the rabbit cannot take a bathe. So, out of curiosity, I goggled about it, and then I found out that rabbit will died if they had constant contact with water. Since then, I never bathe Unni again. In conjunction with the incident, I started to learn the right way how to take care of a rabbit.
Since then, I cleaned Unni by using ‘dry shampoo’ which is a non-rinsed shampoo for rabbit. I also bought her a toy for her to play in her cage, because I learned that a rabbit can be stressed. I did not want her to stress so I gave her a ball with a bell inside for her to play when she felt bored. I also gave her supplement to ensure she is healthy all the times. After I raised her for about 6months, I was thinking to buy her a companion. As the results, I bought another rabbit, but this time I bought a male rabbit. I named him as ‘Oppa’. For your information, ‘Oppa’ is a Korean way to call a brother.
Since Unni and Oppa met, they were never like each other. Unni always scratch Oppa’s body. I felt worried and think for a solution that is I put them in a separate cage. I was planning on to get them together so that they can make another baby rabbit, but I guessed that they never meant to be together. My rabbits most favourite time were when I released them to play at my backyard. They were so excited to go out from the cage and running happily around my backyard. I also learned that rabbits will be active when it is almost evening until night time. That’s why I always feed them at night and I played with them every evening.
