new to the forum and just wanted to say hi.
recently the proud new mommy of a 4 week continental Pipkin. this is my first rabbit in a long time and im hoping to do it the right way with your help. my last rabbit Scruff died of mixy when my neighbour's **** thought it would be funny to come into my garden and let him out of the hutch and into the field to play with the wild rabbits. i found him in the field later that day, and a few days later his eyes crusted over.
i'm older and hopefully wiser, i have pipkin booked in for his vaccine, and have a yale lock on my shed door.
Pipkin is a rabbit that knows what he wants and will have a tantrum if he doesn't get it. food bowl tipping seems to be his favourite outlet for his vexations, especially when he realises hes not getting any broccoli. definitely a diva in the making. hobbies include cuddling into my wool when im knitting and seeing how high he can binky from standing. he likes rolling in the sun, and chewing my dogs ears. pipkin loves to see people and will try to climb up you if cuddles are not administered quickly enough.
i will admit when we got him i though he was too young so i spend the night in a sleeping bag in the shed to make sure he was okay and it didnt get too cold. it was the worst nights sleep of my life as he decided climbing my head was the best possible game ever!
we've had a lot of fun building him his run. and hope to get him a summer house to go with it
