    Andrea Angel, his owner, has decided to use his newfound fame as a way to educate others on how to care for rabbits. On the website CooperThePooper.com, she compiles tips and tricks for litter box training, diet and nutrition, and even basic bunny behavior.

    Thanks to their unique needs and delicate nature, most rabbits need to be handled very carefully and even Andrea admits that they aren't for everyone. 

    She hopes that prospective rabbit owners do their own research before deciding if a rabbit is the right pet for them.

    Her message is heard loud and clear on Instagram, where Cooper's followers are growing more and more each day.
