Just had a call from a lovely 86 year old lady who is moving into sheltered accomodation next week and has a Blue English to rehome.

She was so lovely and really knowledgeable about the rabbit too, she was fretting terribly about finding him a home.

I could'nt say no could I? ;)

He should be here tonight.

Oh, that poor lady!!!:cry: :cry: And poor bunny.....I bet he is really going to miss her.:cry: :cry:

Well done for taking him in......of COURSE you couldn't say no!!!:D :D :D

She rescued him from a bad situation herself too so feels even worse giving him up.

She has been allowed to take her cockatiels with her but also has to rehome her guinea pigs :(

A lovely little lady called Hermy has just arrived too, she is amazingly gorgeous but only has one eye. her owner was also in a difficult position to let her go and has brought lots of goodies with her.

She is a 4 year old dwarf lop and her colour can only really be described as champagne....

They all sound lovely - poor lady, how heart wrenching. Can't wait for piccies of the bunnies -Hermy sounds :love: :wave:

15-11-2007, 10:36 PM
awww, I bet the lady is really upset, bless her. She sounds like a lovely lady.

15-11-2007, 11:03 PM
Don't forget photos of your new arrival asap!!

Hermy maybe staying permenantly....me and Phil have been discussing it tonight and want to see how she gets on a bit better before making a decision.

Strangely I've got a 4yr old 'champagne' lop with one eye too :shock:

She is gorgeous.....we have renamed her Lexie :D but I very much veering towards letting her go for adoption today. There is nothing wrong with her and she is so pretty Im sure she would find a great home quite easily.

I shuld really keep a hard to rehomer for Caspian and at the moment there is no guarantee he will ever be able to have a GF anyway as we cant stabilise him long enough for a GA.

16-11-2007, 01:43 PM
Awwww piccies please!:wave:

16-11-2007, 03:11 PM

16-11-2007, 03:25 PM
Oh my goodness she is wonderful xxxxxxxx :love:

16-11-2007, 03:28 PM
as she is so clean she has the run of the livingroom (keeps anatagonising Izzie though) and has just flopped out in her litter tray by the fire.....I want her soooo much :(

16-11-2007, 03:31 PM
she is beautiful, I think you should keep her;)

16-11-2007, 03:36 PM
oh she's so sweet. I'll get a big bunny like her one day to cuddle when I'm old and grey.

16-11-2007, 03:59 PM
Oh she's adorable. I really don't know how you do it Sooz - I'd be a useless rescue as I'd want to keep them all.

I really should be doing some work but it's much nicer spending time on here looking at pictures of bunnies :roll: :lol: :lol:

Any pics of the English? When you say English is it a English Lop?:wave:

16-11-2007, 10:31 PM
She is sooooo gorgeous :love:

17-11-2007, 01:05 PM
The English boy is actually not an English :rolleyes:

He has English spot markings, very poor ones....and he is blue but he is too small with the wrong body shape.

He also has severe eye problems and both Rob and Anita are away :? Im pretty sure its tooth root issues and only Anita is able to do those extractions so it could be a while before we get them sorted.

17-11-2007, 05:27 PM
She's absoloutely gorgeous! Must stop looking at the rabbits looking for homes - I just want to have them all!

17-11-2007, 11:15 PM
Wow she's lovely :love:

:shock: Only word for her "ADORABLE" - she is absolutely beautiful, stunning and her colouring is amazing

OMG Lexie is tugging at my heart strings. I thought I'd got over keeping bunnies when our last little nethie died - and on my birthday too, so sad - last year. Gave everything away to local animal rescue. Our lad is desperately missing his bunny cuddles ( mind you he is 18yrs old! ). I could be soooo tempted.

Would she be happy as the only bun with a loving family?

How big is she compared to netherlands?

24-11-2007, 03:41 PM

I think she would do well as a single bunny if she had plenty of attention, space and human companionship...her old owner warned us she could be abit skittish with other rabbits so we are wuite happy for her to go alone.

She is a dwarf lop and weighs about 2.4kg, so about X2.5 the size of a nethie I would think.

24-11-2007, 04:24 PM

Thanks Sooz. Just trying to imagine her size, we always took our nethies with us to our caravan. Being so small we could use a smaller cage that would fit in the caravan and still give them room to move about when we were not in to give them the run of the 'van. They loved going on holiday, they always bounced up and down the aisle with excitement.

There is a holiday home nearby we could make use of.

Will have to give this thought. She is such a sweety, I wish her well.
