More about Humphrey:

Humphrey is an 8 months old French Lop who was among 100 animals that were removed from a home due to distressing levels of neglect and suffering. Humphrey has lived free range amongst cats, dogs and other giant rabbits and has seemingly come out of it unscathed. However, he has just been returned following a failed bonding, so whether he wants a companion or not after his previous co-habiting experiences it is not so clear cut. This is what is foster mum has to say about him:

“Humphrey is a self-confessed lazy bones, his favourite things in life are eating and sleeping –he even eats lying down he is that lazy! He gets excited when he is let out free range and will spend a few minutes galumphing around and will then flop out exhausted. He does try and binky, but we have yet to see all four feet leave the floor at the same time! Humphrey loves his food and has a fantastic appetite. He is a fantastic hay eater and will happily flop out in his litter tray whilst eating his hay! He also loves his greens and particularly loves all the stalky bits which my bunnies turn their nose up at, but his favourite veg is broccoli and when you give him a piece he will hop off to find somewhere quiet to eat it in peace! He is a bit of a messy eater, and having a white face and chin he often ends up looking like he has a green beard! Humphrey likes his own space, although when he is in the mood he does love a stroke and will happily tooth purr whilst having a head groom. He is quite headstrong and will push you out of the way if you try to stroke him when he is not in the mood or if you are in his space (like most rabbits!) and he can nip if you don’t get the idea quickly enough but nothing nasty.”

Humphrey is a confident character and in his foster home with two adults he doesn’t seem phased by anything and as long as he has somewhere comfortable to flop out he is happy. However, he would not be suited to living with young children due to his tendency to nip if you displease him. Humphrey has only ever been a house rabbit and is looking to live indoors, ideally free roaming or his own with access to supervised play time around the house. He is nearly 6kg in weight and needs plenty of space to keep him content.

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 adopter’s 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.
