An animal hypnotist claims to be the country’s first “rabbit whisperer”, treating pets behavioral problems., Cliff Penrose 60, uses a special technique to put rabbits into a trance – leaving them flat on their backs with their legs in the air.

He is able to hypnotise then animals by applying pressure and massaging certain parts of the body, including the belly which relaxes them. Mr Penrose then ”bows” to the rabbit by lowering his head so it does not feel threatened before shutting its eyelids leaving it in a trance.

He regularly hypnotises rabbits before they go to the vet so they can be treated and examined more easily.But he also treats “problem” rabbits with behavioural issues and can make them less aggressive after putting them in a trance.The grandfather-of-two from St Austell, Cornwall, said the hypnotised rabbits often live longer as a result of being de-stressed.

UK Pet Owners Making Plans to Spend Eternity With Their Furry-Tailed Companions A loyal dog can be as cherished a companion as there is. A horse can live up to 30 years and bring its owner joy every day. Cats? Well, cat lovers will defend their beloved, fuzzy friends to their dying day. And even then, many are determined not to let go of the leash.

In the U.K., an increasing number of pet owners are making plans to be buried alongside their furry-tailed companions.
Penny Lally runs the West Penwith Woodland Burial Place in Cornwall, England. She started her business as a natural cemetery for people in 2001 on her own farm’s property. She maintains some plots for people alone, but others are open to people and their pets. The only thing that differentiates the grave sites from those of people are the headstones. “A lot of people who wanted to be buried here also wanted to be buried with their pets,” she says.

“British people love their pets. They live as part of the family,” she said. “They give a massive amount of love back so why not?”Once each plot is full a tree is planted atop each grave. Eventually, the plots grow into naturally wooded forests which are designated as Memorial Gardens. Lally says she is receiving more and more requests to purchase these kinds of plots for people and their pets.
