I spent my long holidays after my O Levels researching on how to take care of rabbits. That finally convinced my father that I was ready to commit to keeping a pet. Thus, in December last year (2013), I finally adopted Mocha, a Holland Lop from the SPCA.
During the first two weeks of her stay in her new home, Mocha was rather shy and would sit quietly in the corner of her cage. She would also suspiciously stare at me if I were to attempt to pet her.
Now that nearly three months have passed, Mocha has warmed up to my family and me. She will actively jump about when a family member returns home and nudge us affectionately when our attention isn't on her. She's also very sociable and enjoys getting attention from our relatives who come to visit.
Mocha's such a cute bundle of joy and I feel really blessed to have adopted her! Perhaps in a few months' time, I might adopt a cute companion for my Mocha so she has someone to play with when I'm not home. Thank you SPCA for this bubbly addition to the family!
