9. Not true. We took in a deformed cottontail (turned out to be a hermaphrodite).

 

He (as we called it) was a great pet, very cuddly, and a purring sort. Yes, they purr. He would have died that night if I hadn't taken him in as a kit. He lived six years and almost two months. We recently buried him. He was just crashed out and dead one morning. I know the rabbits by markings and none of his siblings are still around. He most likely outlived them. We miss him. The dogs miss him. The cats miss him. Yes, he was wild, and yes, it's illegal in PA to take such a critter in, but what choice did I have? He had no fear. At least the two instincts he DID have were grooming and using a potty.
