A 4½-year-old male Mini Rex rabbit,
His human: Linda Do of Tarrytown
Ten-second commercial: From spunky to mushy, his personality will instantly charm you. He found his forever home and friend and he’s my constant joy.
Significance of his name: A Nicaraguan tour guide once told me Mico—pronounced Mee-coh—is the cutest little monkey with a black-and-white face.
Why a bunny: Bunnies are not boring. They have spunky personalities, inquisitive minds, and a love for being loved.
Most afraid of: Long car rides.
Best trick: Begging.
Sweetest habit: He loves his snuggles with me so much that at times he drools, makes snuffle noises while his teeth are chattering, and best of all, he smiles showing his teeth. I call it ‘cheese’ because that’s what his biggest and happiest grin looks like.
At night he sleeps: In his cage.
Most annoying habit: Scratching his cage and ringing his bell every morning to wake me up before 6:30 am.
Fave pastime: Watching movies.
On his iPod: ABBA and most of the songs from all the Wii ‘Just Dance’ games. He loves to dance.
Favorite toys: Cardboard boxes. He loves to crunch into them and tear them to little pieces.
Preferred nosh: Banana. He’ll do anything for a piece of one.
Thinks he is: A prince or the most awesome little guy in the world.
Special talents: He does commands such as standing up, walking on his hind paws, going back to his cage, and giving kisses.
He hates: When I travel. When I come home, he’ll usually try to ignore me; however, I just pick him up and give him hugs and kisses, and he melts into my arms making little noises of happiness.
Most oddball behavior: If you go to the bathroom, he will follow you. If you close the door, he will scratch at the door until you let him inside.
Naughtiest behavior: Although litter-box-trained, he purposely peed and pooped on my ex-boyfriend and all around his place.

His favorites: A skull shirt and Superman cape.
