I get all of my rabbit supplies at the house rabbit society in Richmond, CA. About a month ago, I came across a Californian rabbit by the name of Jessie. She was in an X-Pen and I had some spare time so I picked her up and began petting her. She immediately closed her eyes and began tooth purring so loudly that other people in the room could hear it cleary. I found out that she's a real snuggler and enjoys being held and petted. Unfortunately, I can't adopt her because of my own deva at home.
I went to the HRS again on Sunday to pick up supplies and guess who was in the x-pen again? She was standing up, waiting for me to come pick her up and pet her. Which I did while they were ringing me up. However, this time she was very fidgety and trying to climb out of my arms - even going as far as to grab my sweater and begin tugging and biting it. I couldn't figure out this major change until I remembered that just a few hours prior, I had been holding and petting my friend's cat for some time. I apologized to Jessie and put her back into her x-pen, at which point she promptly gave me the bunny butt.
She's not on the HRS adoptable website but she is definitely adoptable. If someone is looking for a rabbit that you can hold and pet, she's the one.
Just thought I'd share.
