Predator and prey can be friends and live in peace!

We adopted a 4 year old New Zeland rabbit named Penny who needed a home because two of her family members allergies were too bad to keep her. They found her four years ago abandoned under their grandfather’s deck barely alive. They took her in and got her well and loved her. The allergies are just too bad now to keep her so my friend Tracey, who knows an animal sucker when she sees one asked me to take her. At first I say no way, you know we have two cats and rabbits are prey to a cat!! I read about domestic cats and rabbits are able to cohabitate so I said I would try but no promises and she will have to go back if they attack her. Well, it’s been two months now and we had absolutely no problems. Felix and Fiona won’t play much with her but have never attacked her. Just been inquisitive, walk up to her and then walk away. I even caught Felix licking Penny a few times and my heart dropped. Hopefully within a few more months they will all be best friends. Maybe there is hope for human kind when predator and prey can live together in peace.

Hope all is well with you both!!

Take care,

Gina
