we,ve just finished settling everyone in,:D the bunnies dont seem to bothered by the journey at all,and are all tucking into their food as we speak:D all 14 bunnies are underweight, not emaciated but you can feel their spines and hind quarters :cry: several are in desperate need of a bath to,several of the bunnies have lost fur around their back legs and are looking a little red in area,s:(
out of the 14 bunnies 3 are of big concern
the buck with a huge lump under his chin, his brother who has an abscess under his chin,which decided to pop on the way home so he,s had to be cleaned up:mrgreen: on examination he has teeth problems aswell:cry: and the male lop who is very snuffly,
and 1 of the piggies has mites, all 3 plus piggy will see my vet tomorrow and i just hope this has a happy ending, will post piccies tomorrow:D:D:D:D:D

Can i just say a huge thankyou to jazzyb bunny, timboh, and devoted to buns for rescuing and helping these bunnies:D:D:D:D

Im so glad it came together!!! Thank you so much for helping everyone :wave::wave::love:

If you could post some pics at some point I said I would give them to the lady :(

I actually at first glance thought that buck with the lump was a doe because I thought it was a dewlap :shock: Poor babies :cry:

I'm so glad they're settling in though!

luckily all the sexes are correct:D:D the buck with the lump could possibly be an abscess, do you know if the 2 single boys have ever been together

They didn't specifically say but I think they said they were both seperated because of fighting, not sure if they were in together but they certainly look like they came from the same litter.

I feel a little guilty about not taking those two boys straight to the vet. If at the begining they looked like they did when I got them out of my car I think I would have taken them straight to my vet instead of making them go on the long journey :(

So glad they got their okay :)

All the healthy ones seemed friendly and they are all good looking so I should think they will all find homes.

My favourites were the two boy lops living together, they are adorable :p

As the Buns are now out then the 'evidence' has been removed so the RSPCA cant do anything.

I do hope all of the Buns can get back to full health.

Poor little thing, he is just so emaciated, and that lump... :shock:! I had a black & tan cross when I was younger and they are such stunning bunnies in full health....I really hope something can be done for him.

Well done for rescuing the bunnies and piggies, sounds lke it may have been in the nick of time. Like someone else mentioned if the woman can't look after animals how is she going to manage with a baby?

Jazzy B Bunny
17-02-2009, 10:04 PM
She'll get free money for the baby so no excuses :? :( But I am concerned about the other animals she has.

I expect so (regarding the money) what other animals has she got then? If she is not looking after them properly either maybe someone can call the RSPCA and try and get her to sign them over for rehoming?

Yes, the mum and daughter. One is rex coated and brown/ white, the other is more of a cross and is black and white. She has called them Kangaroo and Moo-Cow (don't ask - her other pets have strange names too!!)

I think those are great names :lol:

I have a Roo, Joey and Wally (not that I named them) :lol: (and I have Lilly but that's not very Kangaroo like :p )

14-03-2009, 09:06 PM
Kangaroo is so called as she is very boingy, and Moo Cow as she is coloured like a cow. Also, they have 'matching' names for short - Moo and Roo.

an update !!!!!!

the group of 4 girls have all been speyed and rehomed:D:D
max had his operation and has also been rehomed:D:D
the group of 3 girls are3 still here:cry:
the 2 lops one has been rehomed and the other is permanent with me becvause he has medical problems

the piggies have a sad ending, sadly 2 of them have passed away but thye other 2 are doing well:cry::cry:

regards to the previous owners tell them to back off:evil::evil: i know id said send the photo,s but after trying so hard to help these 14 bunnies, after the heartache of losing billy and the 2 piggies they dont deserve to have pictures
get them to ring me and ill be honest:evil:

I dont want to cause upset and offence but these bunnies were suffering because of them and if it hadnt of been for you and a couple of other members the bunnies would of suffered even more
sorry just feeling really bitter towards the human race at the moment:cry::cry::cry::cry:

14-03-2009, 10:39 PM
I know it's no excuse, but having met the previous owners when we took them away I'm pretty sure it was a case of ignorance / incompetence rather than not caring about the rabbits. She did recognise that she wasn't able to care for them properly in the end and gave them up. I know it's not much, but at least it's better than the people who keep them in tiny hutches and neglect them and think it's okay.
I know you've done all of the hard work here bunnyrun and gone through all the pain of losing poor billy, but it would be nice if you could provide a few photos for Jazzy. I know the previous owners don't really deserve it, but could you do it just for Jazzy? They know the shop where she works and can pester her quite a bit. I don't like to think of things getting nasty :?

They came in when I was on my lunch break today, I've printed out a pic of billy and left it in the shop for next time. I've had a few phone calls off them but didn't answer not sure if that was the right thing to do or not. I don't want to cause trouble. :(
