我属鼠. (wǒ shǔ shǔ.) So how do you say "I am a rabbit" in Chinese?

Becky, I am wondering why you don't mention 2 third tones together the first becomes a 2nd tone.

Morning, Jeremy!
You are right! If we want to say 我属鼠(wǒ shǔ shǔ), we are actually saying "wǒ shú shǔ." This sentence is even more special since it consists three third tones. 
We talk about the change of tones in our Tone It Up lessons: )
