The Furry Friend Tag

I thought I'd do a blog post for you to get to know me a bit more and that's by meeting my pet! Also, I'd just like to say thank you to everyone that's been reading - I've hit 40 followers on bloglovin' and I appreciate everyone following!

1) What is your pet’s name?
My pet's name is Benjamin. His name is based on the character from the Beatrix Potter books. If you're not familiar with Beatrix Potter, she wrote a series of books about animals, one of them being named 'The Tale of Benjamin Bunny' (read more here).

2) What kind of pet is it and what breed?
Benjamin is a Netherland Dwarf rabbit!

3) How long have you had your pet friend?
I've had Benjamin since October 2012 - coming up to two years!

4) How did you get your pet?
In my second year at university, me and my two housemates went to pets at home on a whim and came home with a bunny! It wasn't the most sensible idea, but I couldn't imagine not having him now. Now that I've left university, he lives with me!

This is day we brought him home - he's only 10 weeks here and looks so tiny!

5) How old is your pet?
He turned two in July!

6) What are some quirky things about your pet’s personality?
I'd say the main one is that he licks A LOT. If you're holding him, he'll sit and lick your face!

Excuse the old photo!

Another is that he's really interactive with humans, he gets excited when you come into a room, he runs around my feet to play and he jumps up onto the sofa to sit with me!

Finally - this doesn't relate to his personality but the colour of his ears and nose change all the time! You can see in the first photo how dark his ears/nose look but currently their really faint!

7) What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?
I absolutely love Benjamin, my friends always say that I love him too much! I can't imagine not having him hopping around... in fact, I went away for 6 days recently and missed him massively!

8) What are some of your favorite past times with your pet?
If he's a bit sleepy, he'll climb up onto the sofa and sit with me while I rub his ears. It's so lovely because I feel like he sees me a comfort! Also, in terms of playing... he likes chasing me in circles around the front room!

9) What are the nicknames that you call your pet?
Wee man (this was started by my Dad as he is Scottish) and baba - purely because he's my baby!

Thank you for reading! Let me know about your pets!
