Hi to you all...my names shan and I have been around rabbits for many years...I just have pets, although I did do rescue for a while, my "thing " was ex-breeder bunnies which I took-in, neutered and gave a home to. All my bunns are free range, which means they are NEVER shut up in hutches but live as natural life as I can give them (as my vet put it "they are like wild rabbits" which is what I set out to achieve) last year I was at the centre of a scandal created by my now very ex-friend who published a story entitled "the shed..wot I saw" by ----- -------. I would like to take the opportunity to say that it was the biggest pack of lies and rubbish that I have ever read and was completely UNTRUE. I have been RSPCA inspected and vet inspected, neither found any thing wrong so I think that answers any questions on that score and I hope that now I have closure on this. If there are still any doubters then look at the above information and digest it, right so now to the important stuff lets get chatting? love shan & the furry people.

hi you guys and thanks for the great welcome...guess this is going to be a really friendly group ( hope so) will be out with the digi trying to get some pics of my babies...last time I did this I was gone for hours and used up all the film or whatever these new fangled cameras use, got some brilliant pics though even the one of henrys bum which was meant to show his gorgeous little face until he jumped round at the last second and ruined it. has anyone got a problem with foxes ??? I have eight hanging round my garden (they live in a rubbish tip in next doors garden) not what you want when you have precious bunns to guard, they are hungry (I do feed them which is probably not wise) as they were killing the squirrels and I couldn,t bear that, anyone know of a way to get rid of them without hurting them...I also have seven cats and two rats oh! and a large fat spider which is dangling on a web in my kitchen which i am rather attached to love from shan. ( this is short for shanette) and I am just five feet tall so a shorty as well.

Hi rabshan and welcome :wave:

YES we had BIG problems with foxes when I was a breeder. My rabbits where outside living in an aviary (in hutches of course) it was like a rabbit house. I had a fox get 2 or 3 of my rabbits - one of them was Toby’s brothers, Toby was nearly got himself but he was smart and got away. I have also experienced a water rat kill some of my baby bunnies before. Now I only have Toby he lives indoors with me and will never have a rabbit live outdoors again.

I agree I am not that keen either but I am supersticious (not sure on spelling) so they get evicted via a cup and piece of paper and chucked over to next doors :lol:

Hi denny, jay & everyone...the spidey is called angus (all spideys in this house get that name) I get very attached to them and no one is allowed to touch it, my husband keeps complaining about the huge web (and my dusting abilities) he keeps threatning to sweep the web away (no way) there is an even bigger one clinging to the window, I thought they died in winter, guess no one has told them that yet? one of my cats, harry, has a very nice habit of catching mice, bringing them indoors & letting them go, he did this 3 times over the weekend & I havn,t managed to catch one yet, any one elses cat do this, he has a big grin on his face when he lets them go ( I don,t mind mice & used to keep them) but I don, t really want them indoors, have told him this but he just ignores me. He,s a witches cat, he has 6 toes on each foot. I got him from my local pet shop (much against my better judgement never to buy from these places) as people were scared of him, he,s gorgeous & sleeps next to me at night..love from shan & the furry people.

Hi Rabshan

I think your brave keeping the spidies :shock: :lol: Your cat sounds fantastic, 6 toes is just amazing, if he is a witch's cat, he will bring loads of good luck and protect you and yours. (it a full moon and Thursday, the witching hour is midnight, best time to do spells). Your Cat bringing mice etc in the house is him bringing you presents, a sign of love and affection for you, when I was growing up we had a cat that used to bring mice, rats , fogs etc in the house (I think because we had a fair few pets that he thought we might like some more to look after :lol: ). My cat that I had to pts this year used to bring me frogs, but he never harmed them, just used to play with them (it was hard trying to catch them to put them back outside though :lol: )

Hi denny....I didn,t know that witches cats are lucky, most folks are scared of him, I tell them that he is reallly cute & cuddly but cos he,s big,black & has those toes they get well spooked. I was interested in the spell casting you mentioned,I have been reading up on witchcraft (scares the hell out of me) seems white witches are so much different to satanic witches, don,t think I will be experimenting just yet though. love from shan & the furry people,

Black cats are very lucky :D especially to white witches :D He is very special if he has been blessed with 6 toes.

This is true, white witches only cast spells for the good of man kind and to help others, black magic is very very scarey and only practiced by bad people :shock: :shock:

I cannot wait to see your buns any sign of any pictures yet? :D

Hi denny...are you into witchcraft (white) if so can you tell me anything about it, books etc. I can read, as said i,m interested, I like to keep an open mind on most things, I am also keen on spiritulism.I am seeing my favorite medium soon,see what life has in store for me...now the pics well I keep forgetting to take the digi out with me,I will make a huge effort to get my babies to pose for you...my female rat has had babies (it was a bit of a shock as I was told when i bought them that both were female but not so....dad has now been removed to his own tank and I am trying to think of a name for him, can,t call him rosie any more can I...off to do the evening feed now & settle the bunns for the night love from shan & the furry people.

hi there Shan.
I think you should call your male rat Ron, as Ron Weasly from Harry Potter had a rat. (just keeping along the witchcraft and wizardy theme.)
Rats make great pets, i used to have one called fern. she loved to lick your hands and sit in my pocket. Anyway congrats on your baby rats :D .

Hi kelly....oops thats my sons name. I take it your erm!!! a doe, I got the name from a T.V. show and he,s never forgiven me for calling him that, so I guess names should be chosen carefully. have been trying to count the baby rats but they are wriggling around (I think there are seven) got the digi out last night, so some pictures will be appearing soon love from shan & the furry people.
