Rabbits

Marigold

Name: Marigold
Breed: Mini lop
Sex: Female (neutered)
Age: Born Oct 2021
Status: Available for bonding from 3rd May

Marigold came into our care as she had been sold to her unsuspecting previous owner alongside a mis-sexed male. Thankfully we were able to spay Marigold shortly after she arrived with us so she didn’t have to produce any babies when only a young bunny herself.

She is a friendly, cheeky and inquisitive rabbit who loves her timothy hay and forage. Like most rabbits, she isn’t a fan of being handled and appreciates being allowed to interact with humans on her own terms.

During Marigold’s neutering procedure, the vet noticed she did have some calcium sludge in her bladder, so we switched her to a low calcium diet (no pellets, plenty of hay and being careful not too feed too many high calcium greens), and she has been fine since. This diet will need to continue in her new home.

Marigold is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped, and will be ready to bond with a neutered & vaccinated male rabbit from 3rd May.

Housing requirements: 24/7 access to a minimum 60 sq ft (3m x 2m) bunny proof and predator proof enclosure. Please read our care advice pages to ensure you can meet our requirements prior to applying to adopt.

Rats

Niccy, Paris, Suzi, Becki, Sophia, Sally & Jo

Name: Niccy, Paris, Suzi Becki, Sophia, Sally & Jo
Species: Fancy Rats
Sex: Female
Age: Unknown, guesstimate 1 year
Status: Available for Adoption

These girlies came to us from a large hoarding case where over 80 rats were being kept in poor conditions in one household.

Paris & Niccy were displaying symptoms of respiratory infection on arrival and were treated with two courses of antibiotics – their chests are now clear but they continue to be mildly sneezy due to suspected scarring of their upper airways caused by previous untreated infection. They have been reviewed by an exotics vet and do not require any further treatment, but may of course be prone to future flare ups of respiratory infections (like many rats!). The other rats in the group did receive an initial course of antibiotics but have not displayed the same excessive sneeziness, although given that they all came from the same poor conditions, they may also be prone to future respiratory issues.

Sally, Sophia and Becki are friendly but prefer not to be handled too much, Suzi is fairly confident but can be a littly nippy while in the cage, Niccy and Paris are friendly but a little nervous, and Jo is the most timid of the group. These girls would be best with an experienced ratty carer.

The girls can be adopted in pairs minimum if joining an adopter’s existing rat(s), or in trios minimum if not joining more rats.
