Pawsome Pet of the Week: Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny

Ready for another Pawsome Pet of the Week? This week, our special featured pet is a bunny rabbit! Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny is a 3 year old Himalayn Rex Rabbit. In case you didn't know Rex Rabbits are known for having super soft fur, and Speedy's fur is not exception. (Yes, he has personally mailed us a bit of his own fur in the past, and it was very soft!)


Speedy lives in the UK in a small country village on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon with his Mummy and Daddy. One of Speedy's many special abilities is that he's a harness trained rabbit. That means he likes to go for walks outside, and even goes on picnics with his family. What else makes Speedy a Pawsome Pet? Here's how he answered:

"Hehehe - I love cuddles and attention, but most of all I love to play, go on walks, and make my Mum, Dad and my pals laugh and smile."
Another thing that makes Speedy special is that he's not only cheeky, but he's a "Pirate Captain" as well. Due to health problems, Speedy had one of his eyes surgically removed. That doesn't stop him from being adventurous, however.

"I was born with Glaucoma in my left eye and lost all the sight in that eye after a few months. It was later removed due to complications with an ulcer on the eye. That’s how I became a Pirate Captain. 
I was rescued from an animal auction where I was to be sold to reptile breeders by a nice man who re-homed me with Mummy and Daddy. I also had a battle with a cat and even though I had stitches I’d like to think I came out on top and I still like cats."
Speedy claims to "have no fear of anything, which makes for a very cheeky bunny".  It's his favorite thing about himself. It's a great trait to have, especially when you are able to enjoy so many adventures like Speedy does. Here are his favorite activities -

"I haven’t got a single favourite activity…. hehehe - I have a few that I just love to do. I love to play with my toys with  Mummy and Daddy. I love to zoom up the stairs and run around under the beds. I also love to zoom about my garden, but most of all I love to go out with Mummy and Daddy for walks out on the moors down by the river and in our friends' fields. All that exploring and meeting new animal pals like horses, sheep, piggies and doggies and kitties too! It is just so much fun!"


And what does such an adventurous and lively little bunny like to eat? Well... he says he has just a few favorite foods...
"My Favourites, and I have a few, are my Wagg Carrot Bakes, my Burgess Supa Rabbit Pellets, Banana, Basil, and Parsley... hehehe I said I had a few."
Yum! Sounds like a nice variety of tasty noms. Speedy does have his own award-winning blog called Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny. He also shares his blog posts on WordPress to make it easier for his friends to follow him there.


Speedy is a very social bunny and you can find him on his social media pages:


Stop by and say hello to Speedy - he's a very nice rabbit! And be sure to stop by again next Friday for another Pawsome Pet of the Week!
