Arlington Pet of the Week: Lincoln

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Lincoln, a black rabbit.

Here is what her owner Jaime had to say:

Lincoln the rabbit was adopted from the Southeastern PA-DE Chapter of the House Rabbit Society two years ago, and while she was originally a cruelty case, is now living the life of a princess.

We aren’t sure what condition she was rescued from but we think the former owners weren’t feeding her adequately. So when I first brought her home she went crazy for food, running across the floor and sliding into her food bowl like a puppy. Even though she’s nice and plump now, she still maintains that same appetite.

Lincoln loves car rides, raisins, lettuce, her fluffy beds and chewing the wood trim on the wall (ugh). Anytime you pet her on the head or comb her “mane” she grinds her teeth in happiness.

She loves to cuddle and her favorite times are spent wrapped up in a blanket, or “bunny burrito” and watching Netflix in bed. Lincoln is a great example of “Adopt Don’t Shop” and such a sweet little girl!
