Cheryl Lock is a writer and animal lover who minored in biology back in college. These days she uses her writing to cover pet health and general pet care topics. Although Cheryl really loves her Norwegian Forest Cat, Penny, rabbits are her first love. Cheryl got her first rabbit when she was in college — which she affectionately named Fiver, after the hero from Watership Down — and her second bunny, Nugget, traveled with her from apartment to apartment, and even across the country. These days, as a homeowner in Colorado, Cheryl counts every single bunny in her backyard as her own.
