Well, that was quick. I know, I know, just a few days ago discussing a rescue rabbit and yet here we are with a bunny.
She’s not a “rescue” bunny, as such. But we have rescued her in as such that her future was uncertain, as she was being offered ‘free to good home’ on preloved. Free to good home rabbits are often taken in and resold and that kind of upheaval is not good for them (some are also taken in as snake food apparently..!)
That was how we justified her anyway ;)
She’s been looked after in that she’s had plenty of hay and a decent quality food, but the cage she spent most of her time in is woefully small. Off the top of my head, the minimum guidelines for rabbit hutches are 6ft x 2ft x 2ft (which is much bigger than most commercial rabbit hutches – but that’s a rant for another day) and she’s in a beginner rat cage: don’t think you need the measurements to see the problem there.
There is a slightly bigger problem too: she’s an indoors rabbit. So now we have to figure out how quickly we can adjust her to outdoors, or even if it’s possible this late in the year. She’s got her health check with the vet on Tuesday next week so we can ask then if I can’t find an answer on t’interwebs. Bit odd having a rabbit on the sofa in the mean time…
