    Default Here I go again!

    So Adele (named after Adele on here in 2005 by ARC) passed away a couple of years ago now just a month shy of 11. She had outlived two husbuns and survived nodular myxi. We have been slowly reducing the number of pets we had by not replacing those that passed on so we took the decision no more rabbits. Leaving just one cat, one dog, a pony and some fish itís hard enough to get pet sitters when we go away.

    However it seems fate had other plans...

    Taking my cat and dog into the vets for their vaccs last week the vet asked me if I would help her out as theyíd had a rabbit brought in running loose in town.

    She asked if I still had any rabbit bits and bobs to foster him. Well my husband calls me a bit of a hoarder so despite clearing out the outdoor hutch and run I still had most of her original house rabbit stuff which meant Iíd cobbled together a temp rabbit home within an hour and found myself with ďThumperĒ an entire castor Rex who Iím currently mentally calling Humper 🙄.

    Itís been over a week and no one has come forward to claim him despite Facebook alerts on the local pages, vets webpage, posters in vets etc so it looks like he might be staying 😳. The kids are smitten and he has bonded with me - following me everywhere (and trying to mount me when I sit down). So I guess next week Iíll be making an appointment to get him neutered and chipped (had vaccs done before I took him home). Oh dear - the vet said thatís what I get for being a good pet owner - I just think she knew a soft touch when she saw one.

    He is gorgeous and having had a pair of Rex rabbits before they are a bit of a fave breed!

    Fortunately you still had the hutch etc. It was meant to be.

    I think you've joined the clan of happy failed fosterers!
    He's a lucky lad!

    I’m glad you have ended up with Thumper, I hope neutering him solves the humping!
