    Sorry - not a critisism aimed at you. Firstly, well done for rescuing and probably saving the rabbits life. And you most certainly have done. In my opinion he does look thin but given what the rabbit has been subject to, it's not really a surprise. The fact he follows you is a huge positive - the rabbit is trusting humans and feels safe. You've got some hay - which is perfect. Plenty and plenty of it. And you'll need some pellets. These will help build weight up but the rabbit looks young so you might need to look for young rabbit pellets. Some fresh greens would be good and a vet check if you can do so. They'll identify the sex and do the appropriate checks.
    Part of me would suggest you report your neighbours for animal cruelty. Ignorance is no defence for the dredful conditions this rabbit has been subject to. Luckily you have stepped in at the right time.
    Thanks, I'll try feed him up a bit. If he's still here next week I'll get him vet checked too.

    well done Snowymouse.

    those cages ought to be banned. they're not suitable for hamsters, let alone rabbits.

    I wonder if the cage was to transport him (?) outside, and maybe he free ranged indoors? I'd rather not think about the alternative tbh.

    Well done on taking him in, he's beautiful, but yes in the skinny side! You're not mad, idve done the same thing, and have done in the past.

    When I got one of the buns who currently lives with me he came in a carrier that was actually smaller than one I saw at the vet with a mouse in it
    He was literally forced into it, and he couldn't move at all. Face squished up against the side.

    Of course he was taken out of it as soon as he was in the car and has spent the rest of his life in freedom.
    I just don't get why some people think this is acceptable. How about keeping a human like that?

    Thank you

    I've seen now that he was kept indoors, so I wouldn't be able to put him in the shed outside. If I'm honest, it's a bit too soon for me and wouldn't feel right, I don't think.

    He's lovely though and I hope he finds a perfect home x

    I don't know many bunny people but I hope he/she finds a loving home soon, he looks like a right cutie and sounds like he has a lovely temperament. Thank you for rescuing him! Hopefully it won't take him long to put some weight on, a bit of exercise and the right diet should help him muscle up! That cage makes me shudder.

    Did they not have some food for him? Perhaps it would be a good idea to ask which food he had been eating asa change of food could upset him. Thank goodness they realised their mistake, I suppose they had him when he was tiny.
