We have a 9 year old arriving this afternoon. Owners have said that they have had to sell their house and move into a rented flat with no animals allowed.

I have no idea what condition she is in so am praying she is a well loved and cared for bunny, as don't think I could cope with another beetroot or hermione right now.

The owners have had her since a baby and are bringing her to us, so hopefully they are genuine, in which case I feel so sad for them

Gosh, they must be really upset after having her for 9 years, I know that would kill me :( Sending vibes for a healthy bunbun :wave:

Oh dear, poor bun and if they are genuine then I feel so sorry for her owners too. I would be heartbroken if I had to let mine go.

Hope the bun is healthy and able to spend a happy twilight with you xx

You deserve a good break. I can't imagine what the owners are going through. I've just Dougnut back after two nights in hospital, I missed her so much and I knew I was getting her back.

Fingers crossed the bunny is in great shape.

Bunny is here. She is gorgeous and very well cared for.

She was neutered as a baby and has been vaccinated in the past. She has had a dental a few years back and is on pain relief for arthritis.

The owners were very genuine, there where lots of tears. They even gave a donation which very very rarely happens.

Pics to follow when she has settled and trust me you will want to see them!

She is a little lionhead and strangely a fluffy version of hermione!

Awww thanks. I did do a thread for him but think it only got two replies. Stevie has developed arthritis where his knees have locked due to their deformity

She certainly doesn't look 9 years old from her face!

She did come with a bag of cadburys chocolate buttons as apparently she has one a day and has done so since she was a baby!! It obviously hasn't done her any harm but it is so hard to not eat them myself :oops::oops:

Yes me too! It is never something i would recommend, but i guess its like a person who smokes and lives until they are 90 :? She can have one for a few days and then slowly I shall show her the way of the fenugreek crunchie :lol:

Yes, that's terrible.... at the very least, you should have had a nibble of every single one & perhaps even finished the whole bag off just to be completely sure. ;):lol:

Oh dear...definitely sounds like Pip then! :shock:
I also thought choccies were unsafe and have never fed them to any of my current pets. But we used to have a Siamese cat when I was little that my dad would allow her to lick the bowl clean after he had ice cream, no matter the flavor. She loved it. She also nibbled melon rinds.

I love the reference to the person who's had a smoke or a drink all their lives and lived to a ripe old age. I do believe the body gets used to certain things, even if they are toxic, and to withdraw them sometimes causes problems.

I must find something akin to these fenugreek crunchies here in America. It sounds as if it's a good snack for the bunnies and I'd love to put something different on their menu. :)

Big snuggles virtually on their way for Madame Buttons. :love:

I would definitely never chose to give a rabbit chocolate but as she has had it every day for 9 years I need to stop it slowly.

I have just been looking on a USA website for some bunny stuff I want to try but can't get in the UK, so maybe we need to do a swap!

:lol::lol: Apparently menthol and mint oil is pretty harmless to buns in small amounts.

When you question what they pinch to eat you have to think about carpet, wood, door frames, lino, plastic - the chins are terrible with plastic :roll:, clothes, hair and all sorts of weird and wonderful things. I was always catching my now bridge buns eating chinchilla poo off the floor. :shock:

Sure! That'd be neat! Which site is it? You can PM me the details if you don't want to post in thread.

The pinching sweets reminds me of a bun on my other rabbit site here who would make off with chewing gum, antacids and cough drops...not all at once, mind!
He's at the bridge now :( I believe he had E.C.
I wonder if certain medical conditions in rabbits make them more prone to Pica? :? Like what BYB was saying about carpet fibers and such.

Oh dear...After Eights...haven't had any of those in awhile...now I've got a craving! :shock:
I understand what you mean about the weaning them off treats. Before I knew better I used to give Mimzy those yogurt drops for bunnies (in my defense, OH bought them for him and fed quite a few) until I realized it was as good as giving him a slice of bacon every day. :(
He probably doesn't remember them now. I felt so bad about it. :(

What is Pica ?:oops:

I used to know this chinchilla expert and he had to wean a chinchilla, who was keep in a bird cage before it was rescued, off a sweet breakfast cereal, honey puffs and crisps. It was the crisps he had the hardest time trying to wean him/her off.

My mind boggles at what a bunny would do with chewing gum. :shock:

Pica is an eating fixation having to do with consuming mostly non-edible items. Pregnant women go through it with their cravings.
I had a dog who would eat plastic toys. :X
I realize that most bunnies eat things like wires, carpet and baseboard because that is part of their 'warren building' programming, but I often wonder if they find things like carpet akin to the fiber they would need for digestive issues?
Pip once began unraveling a terrycloth towel I had put on top of her pen to help block the summer light at night, I had to pull it away from her and it was a long string of material by that point, had I not seen it she might have choked. :(
It was a scary moment. She gets nothing fabric at all near her habitat anymore. I think she thinks she's a goat. :shock:

Thanks. Yes like a goat eating everything.

I think most buns enjoy ripping carpet up. Certainly with Mr Bennett he would rip it up with his teeth but didn't often see him eat it. If you leave anything on the floor it gets chewed but if its not on the floor he won't seek it out. I wonder if some of it is to do with having been original free and wild animals, not that long ago. Part of it is an outdoor instinct.
