More about Felicia:

Felicia is simply stunning but her looks do not portray the difficult life she has lived. Prior to coming into our care Felicia had spent her 2 years of life confined to a hutch, never handled and never experiencing love. This created a fearful rabbit that hutch guards, hardly surprising really. Once playing out she is a completely different rabbit, so we avoid at all costs handling her when she is inside her hutch and leave her to come and go as she pleases. She loves to skip around and makes use of every bit of available space. Itís an absolute delight to see her run around like a free spirit.

Felicia would be best suited to living in an environment that avoids her finding herself confined/cornered. Playing free in a shed/garden or in a pen/room as house rabbit would suit her best and help her to continue to develop trust in people. She has not had a positive experience of family life and we donít want this girl ever to feel under threat again so an experienced adult rabbit owner is essential so they can read the signs and avoid upsetting her.

Felicia has shown positive interest in the rabbits around her so we feel she would very likely enjoy a neutered male companion, but it is essential that you can manage the introductions without having to handle. Felicia really is enjoying life again after being rescued by National RSPCA Field staff, if you can give her a forever home then please get in touch.

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.
