More about Kitty:

Kitty and Lydia are two lovely Dutch bunnies looking for a new home after they were removed from a multi-rabbit household where many of the 24 bunnies were kept in cramped hutches stacked high to the ceiling. Despite this sheltered existence the girls are more confident than you would expect and after being neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and health checked by a rabbit specialist vet, are ready for a new loving home.

Kitty and Lydia are approximately 3 years old and came in with their 3 other sisters, where they had lived since birth as a group. Knowing we could not find a home for a group of 5 bunnies we carefully observed the relationships and these two quickly separated themselves from the group and were often found lounging in bed together and were the first ones at our feet at feeding time. They are practically identical except for Lydia having a slightly longer and thinner white stripe down her forehead so it can be difficult deciding which one is the culprit when they run off with more than their fair share of treats! The girls were a little skittish at first but are growing in confidence every day. They are happy flopping out next to us, watching us clean and feed the other bunnies and are forgiving of our health checks and claw clipping. They have very sweet natures and so far havenít complained about anything so weíre finding them excellent guests.

Kitty and Lydia are looking for a home together. They are used to living outdoors but we believe they could also adapt to a spacious and quiet indoor house. They love plenty of tunnels and boxes to pop in and out of and plenty of home comforts so they can stretch out and sunbathe.

Details: ∑ All of our rabbits are micro-chipped, neutered and vaccinated against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD). To ensure rabbits are protected from these common diseases, VHD needs repeating every year and in some areas Myxomatosis needs repeating every 6 months, otherwise annually. We undertake a home visit for each rabbit prior to adoption; we aim to do this within one week of each reservation placed. We ask for an adoption fee of £40 per rabbit, £75 for a bonded pair. Rabbits are highly sociable mammals and should ideally live with another. Both rabbits must be neutered regardless of their sex, this is not only to prevent unwanted litters but also promotes good health long term and keeps hormone levels to a minimum. Adopted rabbits living on their own may only be re-homed indoors as house rabbits, requiring a lot of human attention and additional stimulation. When a rabbit is to be bonded with a potential adopterís rabbit, we ask that their rabbit is both neutered and up to date with vaccinations against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD). The best companion match when bonding two rabbits is a neutered male with a neutered female. In most instances, all initial bonding sessions will be carried out under RSPCA supervision to gauge how the rabbits will potentially get on together. When rabbits are to live outdoors then the RSPCA minimum size requirements for a hutch are 6ft x 2ft x 2ft - sheds are an ideal option. With rabbits requiring a minimum of 4-5 hours exercise every day, a secure run permanently attached to the hutch/shed is ideal. We are a registered charity: 232255.
