Bluey was found wandering around in the road – another rabbit who was dumped we think as no one in the neighbourhood had lost him. He’s a handsome boy, quite small with little ears, he has quite a personality and is interested in everything you do and likes you to talk to him. He’s friendly and well behaved and will make someone a lovely pet. Please bear in mind that rabbits need plenty of room, large spaces to hop about in and lots of companionship. Feeding them fresh hay every is essential, the more natural food the better. It’s very easy to give them a bowl of rabbit food but this isn’t best for them. A small amount is fine though. Our rabbits like dandelions and clover, fresh grass and most of all, they love brambles. Blackberry leaves are delicious rabbit food and the thick stems are good for them to gnaw on and keep their teeth short.
Rabbits should be kept in pairs for company, either the same sex or neutered as otherwise there would be a rabbit population explosion! Make sure your rabbits are used to each other before putting them together. Adjacent pens with wire mesh in between gives an idea of compatability. Letting them run about together in a large space is a good trial. If rabbits don’t like each other they will fight and be unhappy.
If you’d like to come and meet Bluey please get in touch.
