new baby rabbit
« on: Aug 22, 2007, 14:35 »
The kids went to the Bird of Prey centre on Sunday and returned home with a rabbit. I had told them no, but two telephone calls later I caved and we now have a new baby rabbit called Smudge. Am I a soft touch or what? It would appear that they have a deal at present - buy a rabbit get a 2nd rabbit and 2 guinea pigs free - so I'll consider myself lucky that the kids declined this offer and thus we only have one new pet.

But we have a minor problem being, that as they no-longer wanted another pet after our last rabbit died last Autumn, I disposed of the hutch and run, hence the baby is currently living in the house. I'm rather pleased that the cat does look at it as if it's lunch but I have put it in the hamster cage over night just in case Jess does get peckish.

I'll post some pics later once I figure out how to use photo bucket.

Alex - how do cope with your rabbit in the flat?

If anyone was thinking of going to see the baby squiggles at the sanctuary please note they are being looked after by one of the carers at home presently until they get a bit bigger. We went up on Saturday and had a great couple of hours but missed the squirrells. They were making a brief appearance the following day so they could be featured on a local TV program though !

Adults ?5 kids ?4. Look at it as a donation though.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather, to skid in, broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclai

THe new baby rabbit has grown somewhat since th kids brought her home.

But she's also has dental problems resulting in either clipping her teeth every 2 weeks at home ( ok - but we can't get them short enough without the risk of spliting the teeth), taking her to the vets every month where they cut the teeth with a grinding wheel ( must be unpleasent for the rabbit as we can't handle her for a couple of days afterward without being growled at, but she does eat much better afterwards ) or having the teeth removed ( and you thought dentists were well paid - it's £105 to have the rabbits teeth removed.


Has anyone else experienced this before and if so which option did you take? and how did your pet cope?
