Clint and Hortensia are a brother and sister pair born at the end of February. They are looking for a new home together after they were rescued from a property with over 60 rabbits living free range in their own filth. The conditions were truly shocking and many of the bunnies we admitted from the case had been badly beaten up by each other. Sadly Clint came off quite badly and is missing the tips of both ears, but thankfully they are now fully healed and he doesn’t seem to care! After a couple of months in foster care the pair are thriving, whilst still a little small for their age the vet is happy with their weight gain and now that they are vaccinated and microchipped they are ready for adoption.
Here is what their foster mum has to say about them:
"Clint and Hortensia (Holly for short) had a rough start to life, but you’d never know as they are the most precious bunnies I’ve ever met (don’t tell mine that). Clint is the sweetest of boys. As soon as you walk into the room he’ll press himself up against the bars of his run to push his nose through for you to stroke it and will stand up on his back two legs waiting to be cuddled. I’ve never met a bunny that loves affection quite so much, he’s desperate for your attention all the time and definitely deserves to get it! He’s more than happy to be picked up and cuddled, although quite often will try and clamber onto your shoulder for a better viewpoint. Holly is more reserved in her affection and isn’t quite so keen on being picked up, but with daily cuddles and kisses she’s getting much better and will happily be cuddled once you’ve got her, especially if there’s food involved! Both buns love head and cheek-rubs, and if you do it right you’ll be rewarded with some tooth purring!
Despite his small size Clint seems to have the bigger attitude of the two. He has no problem telling you when he’s unhappy. If you decide cuddle time has come to an end and put him back down and he disagrees with your decision he will give a big thump to let you know! However if he decides cuddle time is over first he will give a little nip to let you know he’s had enough. He’s also the bigger explorer of the two. Holly seems to be much more of a sensible big sister and will often follow Clint around to make sure he doesn’t get himself into any trouble. They both have fantastic appetites and will gobble down any veg or fresh hay that you give them. They also love their toys, they’re particularly fond of a rabbit chew mat and a tunnel to run through! They thrive with every inch of space you give them and frequently have five minutes zooming around their run. The pair will make the most fantastic addition to any family and I can guarantee that you will fall in love with them as soon as you meet them.''
Clint and Hortensia are looking for a fun filled enclosure within the home packed with toys and endless amounts of hay. They would be best suited to a home with children of secondary school age. The pair are not yet neutered but this will be done by the branch once they are old and large enough. Please call 0161 882 0680 option 4 to meet them!
