Mabel & Rose – cross breed Rabbits

Mabel & Rose
Cross breed rabbits
9 months old
Arrived 3rd May
Fostered in Macclesfield

Update June 2019
Rose and Mabel have been with us for several months now. They are half wild and so are naturally quite shy and nervous; but over the last few months they have both become a bit more confident and inquisitive. They both eat well and their favourite treat is kale. They will eat as much kale as they are given! They also enjoy their fresh hay and a recent vet check has confirmed that they are both in tip top condition. I am quite sure that with time and patience with a new adopter, they will continue to become more accepting of human contact and will make good pets. They really are deserving of a new start.

These beautiful sisters came into our care due to an accidental litter after one of the adults escaped and mated with a wild rabbit so they landed up with 10 rabbits in total which simply was not managable. They didn’t come with names but they now have their own identities! They like toys, bridges and hiding in hay, they do like their own space too! They’ve not been handled much so are rather timid and scared but their fosterer is helping them along with this. They would not be suitable for children sadly due to their fear issues, most rabbitls do not like being picked up and handled at the best of times but these girls have never been handled so it will take a responsible and knowledgable adult to take care of them.  They’ve been health checked, micro chipped, neutered and vaccinated. Housing requirement is a ‘minimum’ sized 6x2x2ft hutch/shed with a minimum ‘attached’ 8x4ft run and freedom to a secure garden/alternative area for stimulation . Please watch this video on why we ask for minimum sized hutch/run:
