Artie originally came into our care after eleven rabbits were removed by the Inspectorate from a property where they had been kept in awful conditions, back in the summer of 2014. Artie was neutered, microchipped and vaccinated (he is up to date with vaccinations) then adopted with his bunny girlfriend who has since died. Unfortunately due to the owner having a baby and unable to bond Artie with their other pair of rabbits he has been returned to us so we can find him a new friend, he deserves to find happiness again especially as he’s so depressed living life on his own. If he’s not adopted soon we will bond him with one of our new arrivals as he is very depressed without a bunny for company-as are most rabbits are due to them being highly sociable creatures. Some information from his previous owner:

Artie is very lonely since his partner died in January and has been quiet, less independent ever since. Doesn’t like being picked up but will enjoy a lovely cuddle once you have him in your arms. Previously lived with an old female bunny and was excellent company, sometimes dominant, loved snuggling into his bunny friend and very protective of her and loving.

He likes his little log arch and likes to chill under it. We sometimes hide broccoli on top of it so he can sniff it out! He prefers a quiet house, very much an “old man” bunny!
He is of course looking for a home with a neutered female; we can assist with the bonding too. A child free home is perfect for him! He is seeing a vet for a sticky eye and is on treatment but hopefully this will clear up soon, anyone enquiring will be updated on this. Housing requirement is a ‘minimum’ sized 6x2x2ft hutch with an ‘attached’ 6x4ft run and freedom to a secure garden/area for stimulation. Please do not buy until you have checked that housing you are interested in meets the RSPCA’s requirements.
