Marv & Lucky at breakfast

These two really look forward to meal times and this is one of those occasions. They are tucking in to their kale and have carrot for afters.
They are spending quite a lot of time out in the run and are very friendly at cleaning out time, when Lucky especially likes to make sure we are doing a proper job.

Present opening time!!

Here are Fern and Donny opening their Xmas present. They are very pleased with the wicker balls and treats they received from their owners Leanne and Neil. They had an even greater time playing with the paper, but isn't that just the way??

Poppy & Woody's Xmas Lunch

This is Poppy and Woody enjoying kale, sprouts and carrot for Xmas lunch. As you can see they have decided to dine separately and Poppy seems to have the lions share, but rest assured they did share it out equally amongst themselves.
They have been spending most of the days out on the patio and don't seem to mind the cold at all, even though the door to their hutch is always open and they could go in at any time.

Merry Xmas

Sharon and Chris would like to wish all our clients a Very Merry Xmas and an Extremely Happy New Year.

Suzy & Smudge + Lola & Henry

These four came to us on Tuesday evening and are housed in one of our bedrooms. It took a while for them all to settle in but they are now all doing well.
We are very pleased to see Lola doing so well after she was so ill earlier in the year, but after watching her racing around, she seems back to her old self.
Both couples love to have fun and are very playful.

Lily & Primrose Degu

Just an update on our friends degus Lily and Primrose. They are doing fine and are enjoying their stay with us. They spent yesterday re-arranging their bed area and it now seems how they want it.
They also had 'nutty', which was fine but very noisy as they insisted running on their wheel while carrying the nut in their mouth.


We have quite a few guests staying over the Christmas Holiday and one particular little bun, is very sweet and quite funny. Yes his name is Mouse and although he is 7, he is very active and loves to play with his hanging ball in his cage. Yesterday he had some time playing in our kitchen area and really enjoyed his adventures.

Ice and Frost

Just to let worried owners know that during the frosty and sub-zero conditions that we are experiencing at the moment, we have moved all outside rabbits to the inside of our main shed or into the garage area.
Both of these areas are served by heaters, and although the temperature is not high, it is kept above freezing.
Although rabbits can cope with cold conditions quite well we feel that they should not have to endure minus degrees of cold.

Barley & Seymour

This is Barley and Seymour, who we are fostering until they can go to their 'Forever Home' in January. Their new owners will be ready for them then and we are sure they will be a great addition to the family.
We let them out for a free run in the garden every morning and they are really great to watch. They run, jump and skip all over the place and are very nosy, all in the name of fun.
Barley (on the left) will come to us and likes to be scratched on the head, but Seymour is a bit more nervous and usually keeps to himself. They are living outside, but as with the other outside rabbits, don't seem to mind the cold spell we are having with the weather, as long as we provide them with plenty of hay.

Woody and Poppy

Here are Woody and Poppy out playing on the patio. They are both giant rabbits and Woody is bigger than most. He is a cross between a Continental Giant and a French Lop, and this makes him big in stature but shorter in length. Poppy is a pure Giant and so is longer in the body than Woody.
They are both very gentle rabbits and very easy to get on with. They are very friendly and are always looking for attention. They don't seem to have been fazed by the cold snap in the weather and still spend nearly all day out on the patio.

Marv & Lucky

This is Marv and Lucky. Marv is the Harlequin and had hurt his foot before his owners left him with us. We have been continuing giving him his medication and he seems to be fine. He was quite timid at first, but has gained in confidence every day, and both he and Lucky are now very inquisitive when we are cleaning them out.
They are outside rabbits and have been using the run attached to their hutch every day, despite the cold weather conditions. They don't seem to mind as long as they have plenty of hay in their bed and box to keep them well fed and warm.

More Fudge

Here is Fudge out playing with her tunnel. She really enjoys her time out of her indoor pen and covers every inch of the bedroom floor. She comes out every evening for at least 3 hours, and she lets us know she is ready by rattling her cage to remind us.

This is Fudge who is a female rabbit who has come to stay with us for 3 weeks whilst her owners are away on holiday. She is very lively and we have let her have a free run in the upstairs bedroom, which she seems to enjoy. She is very friendly and loves having her head and nose rubbed.
