    Good luck, hope it all works out for you. Sounds like you can give a her a lovely home.

    We have done 3 successful bonds and none were related. I hope it is love at first sight for them for you.

    I'd buy her, quarentine her for 2 weeks and then start bonding her with your lad!

    None of my rabbits have been related, but have bonded perfectly well!

    The rabbit welfare association (and every other animal welfare body that issues advice on rabbits) believe that rabbits are best kept in pair and groups. It would be helpful to have a read of this: http://www.rabbitwelfare.co.uk/resou...uds_jul_04.pdf


    One thing I would say, is to be prepared to deal with any health problems she may have, as whilst most rescues will health check and check the teeth of all rabbits before rehoming, it isnt general p@h policy to necessarily do so, although I believe in some stores they may.
    IF YOU NEED HELP WITH ANYTHING PLEASE SEND ME A PM (OR ASK ANY OF THE OTHER FORUM BUDDIES).

    Cari you have already contacted me re finding Stephen a wife
    PAh are, not surprisingly, talking nonesense.but a few things

    to see a rabbit alone in their store is sad..but if you get her she will be replaced by another next week and you cannot save them all

    if you adopt from a rescue, like us, we will bond for you..and if the bond doesn't work we can try a different rabbit and you knwo the origianl one will be safe

    if you buy this rabbits from PAH and the bonding doesn't work..what will you do with her as i doubt you'd want to take her back

    do think that through before getting her.alot of the adoptin rabbits in there are stock that has grown..so moved dept to allow them to buy in new baby one..makes me mad
    my personal view is do not go in there..the less animals bought from them, the more likely they are to stop selling them

    Hiya,

    I have yes, I'm currently exploring all avenues that may lead to finding Stevie a wifey-bun. I saw this rabbit on a trip to P@H and just thought she was lovely and felt terribly sorry for her. She was someone's pet but they couldn't look after her any longer, took her to be rehomed with a friend and they split them up immediately after they arrrived (not sure why).

    I am very interested in adopting from a rescue which is why I contacted you and fully appreciate the support you would provide with bonding. I know I have to have a homecheck etc so am very keen to get the ball rolling as the longer I leave Stephen on his own the worse I feel and the lonlier he looks.

    Awww, there's no need to feel bad. Getting Stephen a friend is the kindest thing to do and he is clearly a much loved bunny

    Why don't you get the homecheck sorted asap anyway and then at least that's another thing ticked off the 'to do' list
