Mayfly R17/10

Mayfly is a very fluffy black lionhead doe. She came to us in May 2010 when she was a year old because her owner was having problems and wasn’t looking after her. She was a dreadful matted mess and was thin and frightened. I had to cut the matts off and shave her bottom. She is still nervous of people but is happy living with Poplar and Birch in one of our sheds. She has become rather fat which I can’t do anything about as both Polar and Birch are… Read more Mayfly R17/10

Rose R104/09

Rose is a blue grey lionlop doe who was about two when she came to us in October 2009. She was  part of a group of 14 who were given to us because of her owners mental health trouble. The group included Old Bonnie, who of course wasn’t Old then. They were the last rabbits that we took in with the intention of rehoming. She had had a litter but the owner wouldn’t let her babies come to us as they were so pretty. I dread to think of the… Read more Rose R104/09

The Rabbit Care Section from the old site.

I know this needs work, it is on my to do list. I need to decide how to present the information, but at least this is here in the meantime…   Rabbit Care Rabbits need as much exercise as a small dog, and as they can not be walked the way dog can, they must be able to get that exercise within their accommodation. (Leads for rabbits are not recommended.) This means that their housing must be as large as possible. Most conventional rabbit runs do not deserve the name… Read more The Rabbit Care Section from the old site.

Myra R59/09

Myra was an English marked lionhead doe with a flaming temper. She came to us in June 2009, but it was not our first encounter with her. We rehomed a buck to live with her in 2008, and she bit the homechecker. Her owners moved and did not want to take her with them. Considering her temperament I am not surprised. When she got here she was bullying the little buck we had bonded to her so we separated them and found him a much nicer companion. Her we found… Read more Myra R59/09

Basil R130/08

Basil or Oliver as he was known before we rehomed him (because he looked just like a little doe called Olive) is a little English marked buck who first came to us on New Year’s Eve 2008 after he was found in a park in Birmingham in freezing weather. He was fully grown then so we estimate that he was born in 2007. We found him a good home, but when his partner died his person felt she needed to return him to us as she was finding rabbits and… Read more Basil R130/08

Poplar R125/08

Poplar is a black and white Dutch cross buck who came to us at just under a year old in December 2008 at the request of another rescue that was trying to close. He and his brother Humbug were fighting badly and so had each been confined to half a three foot hutch. His brother had nearly castrated him and the wound was infected. When the vet finished the job he bled badly and had to become intimate with a bag of frozen peas. It took six weeks and another… Read more Poplar R125/08

Oak R118/08

Oak is an agouti buck. He came to us in November 2008 with the rest of his littermates. They were too young to leave their mother but they all had diarrhea and one of them had prolapsed her rectum. Their owners were not prepared to take them to a vet. Despite weeks of trying we were not able to save the one with the first prolapse. Bonnie also prolapsed a few days after arriving, but because it was dealt with immediately permanent damage was not done. The litter was treated… Read more Oak R118/08

The days are getting lighter…

The days are getting lighter and longer, the snowdrops are opening, the birds are singing, the rabbits are digging and the guinea pigs are dreaming about spring grass…   A different smaller viewpoint,         The world below the kneejoint…    

Spark R103/08

Spark was an agouti lop buck born in August 2008 who came to us in October 2008 as part of an accidental litter. He was rehomed in May 2009 but returned in August 2013 when his family moved to a house with a fox infested garden. He lived with Old Bonnie in one of the enclosures. He was a bit of grump and recently bit me. He had the inevitable ear problems that come with being a lop, abscesses and a paralysed face from pressure on the nerve but coped… Read more Spark R103/08

Severn R26/08

Severn is a harlequin dwarf lop buck. He came to us at just four days old with his mother, father and the rest of the accidental litter he was part of in March 2008. The whole litter was named after rivers after one of them weeed all over a visitor. He was rehomed to live with Sapphire when her sister (from another accidental litter that we took in in 2007) died in 2008 and then was returned with her when their people could no longer manage the recurrent bouts of… Read more Severn R26/08
