have finally found out how to put photos up so here are photos of my two babies. millie and bonny. im looking for a home for these two as im off to iraq in april and my husband is going there is the next couple of weeks. due to being away a lot weve decided it would be fairer the the buns if they had a forever home with people that didnt lead such manic lives. black one is called millie he is 3, ginger one is called bonny she is 5, they are litter trained and live in the house with access to the garden, i would like to try and find them a home with people that would let them live in the house. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y30/baza6363/Picture001.jpg

im away for 6 months, if i cant find a forever home would anyone be willing to foster them as indoor buns? ive had an offer of an outside hutch which would be great if all else fails, but i would really like them to be able to spend time indoors cos they really like snuggling up under the radiator, and tend to shy away from the cold nights.

Whereabouts do you live? :) I'm not promising anything, but we might be able to foster if you can't find a permanent home for them.
They're gorgeous by the way! :D

aww they are lovely. I'm sorry I can't offer anything more ( i'm still living with my parents and my dad doesn't like the idea of having any more rabbits living in the house)

I hope that you can find someone who will give them the home that they need

awwwwwww they are so lovely :D

We're in north Notts, so if you don't come up with a solution before you're ready to go, let me know. :D
*thinks of a way to break this to the OH* :wink: He loves babbits too, so he'll be a good daddy to them whilst you're away. You must be heartbroken to leave them! :cry:

Oh I'll give you some info on us... Can't have you just giving your rabbits to anyone... :lol:
We have 7 indoor rabbits just now. Buck and doe which are going to be bonded once the buck is neutered, though Max, my doe, is quite aggressive so she may have to be done too, before I put them together permanently. They have 5 kits out of a litter of 6, one little doe, Esme, crawled out of the nest and didn't make it back in. It was too late for me to save her, despite my efforts to warm her. :cry: The frolicking 5 are 2 months old now and 3, hopefully, have homes to go to.
:D

If i cant find them a forever home that would be fantastic. :lol: i go on april 25th and im due back on december 16th. we dont know when my husband is going to be back and im unlikely to be able to find out until i get back in december, cos hes going to a different part of iraq than me, so im not going to be able to have any contact with him while we are away :cry:

Delphinum
03-03-2005, 09:38 PM
Oh you poor thing! That'd be so hard to be apart from him, but to have no contact is even worse!! :cry:
Well, good luck finding a permanent home, and pm me if you need a foster mummy for your gorgeous lil lops! :D I wish we could keep them permanently but I don't know for definate what's happening with my kits, so it'd be difficult, an unfair, to say we could keep them forever. :(

If I fosterd them for you untill you got back, would you take them back? When you came home? And I respect what you guys do over there. I would want to be a apache pilot, if I could. But Im gonna be a vet :D so anyway, any more details? Were moving to a farm soon and I would ask my parents if i could take in more bunnies. I have 2 netherland dwarfs. There a little mean right now, with the hormones and all, but we'll get em spayed this summer. And also, I see their both of different gender. Are they fixed? I wouldn't want any enexpected litters.But i would be more than happy to help out. :wink:

Thanks anyway :D

thanx for the offer anyway bubble bee. At first i thought a foster home was unfair on my bunnys but now im really warming to the idea, it would be lovely to come back from iraq to my bunnys, the house just wouldnt feel the same without them, i just cant decide if its in their best interest to find them a forever home. 6 months is a long time to be away from them, but would it do them that much harm to be in a different enviroment for 6 months, and then to come back home????????? :?

Tamsin
07-03-2005, 08:30 PM
What are they like? If they are very nervous rabbits that are warry of new situations then it might be better for them to have a home to settle into long term. If they are quite out going and not easily stressed then a foster home may not bother them at all.

I think spending 6 months somewhere is no more stressful than sending buns off for a two week holiday at a boarder.

You'd need to find a very good foster though as unlike shorter term holidays they would need the amount of space and attention they would get in a ormal home situation. You'd also need to have a written agreement on vet care and what should happen if they were ill or in the worst case needing putting to sleep. Especially as (persumably) it would be difficult to get intouch with you?

I know Adele does quite a bit of long term fostering for various people that are away for long periods so perhaps she can shed abit of light on how the bunnies feel about it.

Hiya, I would be happy to foster the bunnies for six months if you need me :wink:
I offer short term boarding but prefer the longer term boarding as I can really get to know and spend lots of time with the bunnies.
I set the bunnies up here as they are housed at home, this is the key to bunnies settling in well and not being upset with a move.
It is not the length of boarding duration that unsettles a bunny, but how they are transported, settled in here, and the ongoing care they receive.
To tell you the truth, I think the rabbits actually enjoy a change of home and scene for a while, but they remember their owners when they return, and slip easily back into their routine at home.
I have several rabbits boarding here for 9 months plus whilst their owners are abroad, and another for 6 months. It is great as they become part of our family for this time, and then come back to their proper Bunny Mummy later on. :)
If I can help at all, please do not hesitate to PM me,
Best wishes
Adele

hi denny, they have an indoor cage but they just use it as a litter tray, they dont spend any time in it other than to go to the loo. i have a large dog pen/cage that i have filled with cushions and news paper for them to destroy,play or go burrowing in, they do spend quite a bit of time in there, but theyv never been locked in it. they sulk when ive tried to in the past, in fact millie actually turns his nose up at me and stamps his feet. (typical male :lol: )

hi adele, would they be indoors?? would they be able to run around???

hi guys, yes im gonna give it another week to find a forever home, getting quite desperate now as time is running out. have had an offer from someone local, but its by someone thats never had house bunnys and they live in a 'showroom type' house, and they are terribly proud of the garden, its got lots of lovely coloured flowers in, that i just know my two would have a feast on given half the chance :oops:
I have a feeling they would get sick of millie and bonnie in quite a short space of time, so i dont think this particular forever home is an option.
SO IF THERE IS ANYONE OUT THERE THAT WANTS TO ADOPT TWO ABSOLUTELY SMASHING, CUDDELY, CUTE,NOSEY,CHEEKY LITTLE CHAPPIES, THEN PLEASE GET IN TOUCH!!!! :lol:

14-03-2005, 08:29 PM
i think thats what i will end up doing, im just feeling like im not giving them the best life cos when i get back from iraq in novemeber, im home for christmas then have to go away again for 3 months, theres a good chance my hubby will be around to look after them for that 3 months, but its not 100%. which would mean them getting fostered again. but if its the only option then so be it :( .......... poor bunnys, i feel such a bad mummy. They love human company.........bless em :)

Adele
14-03-2005, 08:43 PM
We are flexible here, we can keep the bunnies here for as long as you need us to help.
They will be kept as house rabbits and can run around indoors, no problem, we do not keep bunnies hutched up, dont worry.
:wink: :) I am here all day, so they will get lots of attention and snuggles :)

Hi Baza

Glad they have found new homes - I just wondered are Millie and Bonnie the same bunnies as "pojperry" had in January.

It is just that they were rehoming a chinchilla-lop baby bunny (baby-boo) as it did not get on with their older two called Millie and Betty-boo.

"pojperry" is in the military and stay in Oxford too.

If so what happened to baby-boo? I Bonnie "Betty -boo"

or is it just a co-incidence :wink:

Well millie and bonnie are here and we have left them to explore their new home. They are absolutley gorgeous and we love them already. Millie knows something is very different and is quite nervy at the moment but bonnie is crashed out sleeping and not too bothered. Can't wait to get to know them more and hope they love us as much as they did Jo and John.
