Petals came into RSPCA Walsall care in November 2009. Petals is an 18 month old female bunny. She is mainly white with a flash of grey marbling. Petals came into care as she was being neglected in he prevous home. When Petals first came into care she was very territorial because she had not been neutered and had been kept alone. Since coming into care and being neutered her personality is developing and she is not as territorial over her hutch. Like any rabbit that hasn’t been neutered, the hutch becomes a battle ground, but take them away from that and they are putty in your hands. It will just take a little bit of adjustment time to get her more used to being fussed and handled in a positive way.
You can see in this photo below that when Petals came in she had an untreated eye condition, this has thankfully now cleared up. When Petals went in to the vets to be neutered, they had a look at her teeth. They could see that in her life up to now she had been fed a very poor diet which had led to her having poor dental condition. She had a couple of spurs removed from the molars. We feel that with a good diet we can maintain the teeth a lot better but she will still need to have those teeth checked every 3 months.
We are looking to rehome Petals with a neutered male for company. If you feel you can offer Petals her forever home, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0845 272 3570.
