“The man who chases two rabbits, catches neither.”

Riddle: How do you spell the word rabbit without the letter R?
No matter how you spell it or say it, you can’t deny that domesticated rabbits are extremely cute and can make wonderful pets, if you know what you’re getting into. And it’s no coincidence that KCAC just happens to have a sweet Silver Marten Rabbit available for adoption for those bunny aficionados.
Her name is Button, and she is 4-years old. With a black and tan shiny coat on top of a silver layer, Button is definitely a princess. She feeds on mostly hay and is very happy to get a chance to get out of her cage and roam around her environment.
She’s not a rabbit that enjoys getting picked up and petted, but is independent enough to go back in her crate when it’s time. Although a little timid by nature, Button will make a wonderful new addition to a family that is willing to work with her on socialization.
Congratulations to Scout, our gentle giant Great Pyrenees that finally found his forever home.
