  • I have to rehome a rabbit of mine, due to me being poor and crap, and though I'd try here. She is a lovely and very tame black and white dutch, and would come with her cage and stuff to go in it. She cant go with other rabbits, cuz she tries to beat them up, and isn't keen on cats either.
    She loves people, and comes when called. I am asking for a tenner for her, just cuz then she wont end up as snake food, but thats with the cage.

  • I'm tempted, where would she need to be picked up from and how big's her cage?

  • just to say anyone that never had a rabbit before they can be incredibly sociable animals and house trained

    my brother got bored of his within a week but it would lay for hours on the bed with me coming and snugling up then put him back in his hutch and he would rush to the wee corner :D

    all the best on finding a home for her

  • Just as long as you don't take it anywhere near the Ruhr Valley in Germany where those Bunny Killings are happening. Or is it fleeing from Germany?

    She's in a 42 inch dog crate (about 3 and a half foot) which is fine for here as shes out of it most of the time anyway. And as for picking her up, we can arrange a rabbit run, so you wouldnt have to go far.

  • Wish I could.
    I have something of a soft spot for cute bunnies, lol.

    (damn, did I just post that on a public forum?! :o There goes my reputation! lol)

  • Forgot to add that she is litter trained, has never chewed a wire, and is fine on carpets and lino, drinks from a bottle and in her cage she has 2 blankets and her litter tray so cheap and easy to clean out. Oh and she is already spayed and vaccenated, and would come with a sack of dry food (shes on science selective atm) which will last ages as she only has 20 ish pellets a day.

    Is she used to living inside your house, or in the garden?

    She is an indoor rabbit, and its best she stays that way as she doesn't have a bunny friend to snuggle up to when its cold or shes lonely.

  • That makes sense. I feel quite tempted.... but realistically we haven't got the space :(

  • We are in Portsmouth and she is ok with dogs. She gets a little worried if they bark but not too much, she loves my dog, and he loves her (but mainly coz he like to eat her poo's). As of yet she has never gone to attack or chase a dog.

    How does she get on with other rabbits?

    I tried bonding her with my two (male and female) and she wasn't that keen, but that was just a few months after her spay, its now been 6-9 months (I'll check the date later) and she's a lot calmer. It didn't work with mine, but she should be ok with others.

    What do you have already?

    I'm also getting her back teeth burred soon, and the front ones removed, as they are a bit of a problem, but shouldn't grow back so wont be a problem for long. It will only be the second time her back ones will be burred in nearly a year, and they aren't that bad, so she might need an opp every year to 18 months the vet says, which is good.
