Silky the rabbit and her once-adopted son, Cecil the squirrel
Tampa Bay Newspaper’s Pet for the month of May is Silky the rabbit and her once-adopted son, Cecil the squirrel.

Silky lives in Largo with his humans, Mark and Robin Hansen, human brother Christian, and doggy brother Coco the chocolate Lab.

Silky is a 5-year-old Rex rabbit. She was adopted from the SPCA four years ago. Cecil the squirrel was found with a hurt leg and tail and was abandoned from his nest.

He was so tiny that Christian had to feed him with droppers for the first few weeks, and the family kept him in a cat kennel so he could heal. Once he started walking and eating better, the Hansens opened the door and put him on the porch, where Silky lives.

At first Silky was annoyed by this furry intruder, but soon she would look for her squirrel baby and would snuggle up with Cecil. Robin thinks this companionship may have helped with Cecil’s healing. Since squirrels are not pets, he only stayed with the family until he could care for himself.

As Pet of the Month winners, the Hansens and Silky won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park.
