    Default Two bunnies needing home - Surrey / Hampshire

    Posted on beghalf of new_horizon





    Physical Description
    Sweep - One black neutered male lop (2.5 years old).
    Pumpkin - One sooty fawn spayed female lop (2.5 years old)

    Temperament
    Do not like to be handled, enjoy running around outside and generally being observed rather than playing! Pumpkin is a mischievious little madam, who is incredibly good at jumping and running about. Sweep is a bit of a misery guts, but is funny to watch stooping around.

    Age
    2.5 years

    Sex
    Male and Female

    Neuter Status
    Both neutered

    Vaccination Status
    Not vaccinated

    Health
    Both in good health - the sooty fawn lop has been treated for dry skin on her ears in the past.

    Type of home wanted
    Home where they are able to run around outside and generally mooch about doing their own thing. Preferably on a foster basis for a year and a half.

    Location
    Surrey / Hampshire

    Reason for rehoming
    Sadly we are unable to keep these two buns at the moment as we do not have the room for two hutches where we are currently staying. We have three buns here and these two were living with my partners Mum. Unfortunately, she is having an extension built and cannot house them anymore. We understand the problems with unwanted rabbits and therefore would like to pay a kind person a fee per month to look after them for about 1.5 years and then take them back when we have our own place - a large hutch and run can be provided too if necessary.

    Thats a good idea, I hope someone can find room to foster them.

    Hi there,

    Forgot to include some pics of the bunnies, which I will forward to an admin later - yes they are bonded and very much attached to one another - they are actually my girlfriend's so I will check the vaccination question later :-)

    They are both currently living in Waterlooville, Hampshire - I have spoken to my girlfriend and she would be willing to pay for the vaccination fees :-) I have photos if you would like me to send them to you?

    Would you possibly be able to put a photo of each of them on this thread, this usually attracts more interest? Will PM you as well.

    Hi, I'm actually the owner of these two buns but haven't had time to come online due to a hectic work schedule! Before anyone fosters Pumpkin and Sweep they will be vaccinated and I'm happy to pay for this to be kept up to date.

    I have a double storey 6ft hutch with attached run that the 'foster parents' are welcome to use (I have pics). At the moment Pumpkin and Sweep are used to spending a few hours in the garden everyday as the run isn't huge. The run could be detached if it's not practical - it's built to go round a corner.

    In terms of food and hay I'd be looking to set up a direct debit each month (or something similar). They're currently on Burgess Excell Junior and Dwarf and won't eat the adult. They could slowly be weaned onto something similar (Science selective etc.) if needs be.

    I think my boyfriend, Mark, has been a tad harsh in his description of Pumpkin and Sweep. They're independent but in no ways aggressive. They'll come up to you if you're near their run, particularly if you have greens or some banana!
    They're very inquisitive and like to jump onto the top of their run when they're in the garden (which is quite high!). When they've had enough excitement they'll head back into their hutch to stretch out and groom eachother.

    If you have anymore questions then please ask.
