Animal of the Week: Angora Rabbit

Buried within the depths of 150lbs of fluffy, white hair, therein lies….A bunneh.

find the rabbit

It came from Turkey, and used to be a popular pet for rich French people. So you know these guys are classy. At first glance, you might think you have encountered the yeti, but like most things in life, you just need to look a little deeper.

I eat Angora rabbits for breakfast

Though I’m positive they’re good for other things too, Angoras are bred mainly for their fur, because it is soft, silky, and there’s a shitload of it.

Here’s a video of one getting a haircut. The machine they’re using to hold it looks a little alarming, but don’t worry, I’m pretty sure it’s not dead.

They are also International. There are English ones, French ones, German ones, and my personal favourite, Giant ones.

yo Louise that rabbit is CRASI

The giant kind, are… Giant. Even bigger than Louise’ friend. They have so much goddamn fur, they try to clip it themselves (because they’re efficient like that), and could end up with “wool block”, similar to “throat block” or “choking”. If they have space to run, and get to eat fruit, it helps move the wool through their system and they can eat and shit alll the wool in the wolrd. Or on their bodies, which is probably equivalent to all the wool in the world.

I can't see shit

In conclusion, Angora rabbits would make the perfect pet. They’re playful, social, like attention, like toys such as pinecones, gloves, plastic balls, stuffed socks, they’re starting to seem a bit perverse. But all the better.
Bonus Feature: You can also use them as a pillow, they love their owners so it most likely wouldn’t bite your face off if you tried.
