Sweet Cotton Candy!
I adopted Cotton (previously known as Cream when he was at the SPCA) on 25 February 2014. Although we have just adopted him for a month or so, it does feel as though we have had him for a long time. Cotton and I did not fall in love at first sight on that day; the rabbit that I had earlier wanted to adopt and expressed great interest in the previous weekend had actually been adopted by someone else.
An SPCA volunteer was helpful to share with me the temperaments of the remaining three white rabbits available for adoption and I was told Cotton was very timid (as merely opening the cage could scare him) and disliked being held. He, however, had caught my attention because he was not entirely white (what with certain grey spots around his nose, ears and tail) and after discovering a little more about his temperament, I opened his cage to touch him and he allowed me to. He was cautious but he did not react negatively. The Cotton we now boast is certainly very different from the Cotton which I first got acquainted with at the SPCA - he no longer shows fear in his interactions with us, and he surely displays much better tolerance now about being carried. The only thing that has not changed about him is that he is still very much the glutton. I do not know if I can ever find another rabbit with a similar personality.
I have also specially created a blog dedicated to Cotton:

Our many thanks to the SPCA, Singapore, for bringing this little bundle of joy into our lives!
