We originally thought that this beautiful pair were brother and sister but having come from a home of 60 free-roaming rabbits there was always the chance they weren’t. As they have got older they have developed at different rates and the vet has concluded they must be from a different litter. But remarkably Clint and Horace adore each other to this day, and they have been waiting 3 months for a forever home together as house rabbits.
The conditions the boys came from 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!
Here is what their foster mum has to say about them: “Clint and Horace are gorgeous, sassy and affectionate bunnies. As soon as you walk into the room they race up to the edge of their pen to try and get to you and will often put their tiny noses through the bars for a little tickle. When in their own space they both love strokes and head-rubs and will settle down into ‘miniature loaves’; you will definitely get bored of it before they do! When they’re out of their run they’re much more into exploring everything around them. Horace will choose to run around rather than sit on your lap but Clint will gladly stay close to you for some kisses and cuddles. Even when just walking up and down beside their pen they will run alongside you - they could be looking for food but I choose to believe they’re just waiting for some attention! As they are both so keen for affection all of the time they really need to be house rabbits so they can benefit from your company.
Clint especially is so keen on being cuddled and fussed over that if you put him down too soon he’ll thump to let you know he wasn’t done! He has become an expert in jail-breaking, so would definitely need a lot of space, ideally their own room so he doesn’t have anything to escape from. Even when he has escaped his run as soon as I walk into the room he runs up to my feet for some cuddles so he isn’t hard to find! I believe that the more space they have, the happier they will be to come up and sit on laps for some strokes. The only thing that currently holds them back is that they’re so keen to investigate everything. They are clever buns and can get bored quite easily, so need lots of toys and things to entertain them. Horace even seems to have the ability of recall and when out during free-roam time we can call her name and she will come running back. They are both quite fluffy, so will need regular brushing which we are still trying to get them accustomed to, but they don't seem to mind as much if there are greens or pellets involved. If you’re looking for some cute, affectionate bunnies to join your family that will keep you entertained for hours on end then these are definitely the ones for you.”
Clint and Horace are looking for a fun filled indoor home at the heart of your home packed with toys and endless amounts of hay. Horace has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Clint has been microchipped and vaccinated and will be neutered when he is a little bigger.
