But our cat (hadn't realized we weren't supposed to have one and landlord let it go, but we won't replace him) died a couple of months ago and they are dying for a pet.

We have a rabbit someone ditched in or near our yard. Took him to vet and had ticks and fleas taken care of and adopted him. He's on his own, but housed in a dog pen in family room so kids can go in and play. Super happy guy on his own, but gets a ton of attention. We've had rabbits before, but this one is friendliest. As long as you're petting him, he'll lie there and grind his teeth in bliss. Likes to play fetch with paper towel rolls and little balls, too. [ Reply | More ]
