Con­cern as ‘small furry’ cor­ner fills up over the fes­tive pe­riod

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -


TAPPEARS Christ­mas was any­thing but the sea­son of good­will to ‘small fur­ries’. Rab­bits and guinea pigs are caus­ing us som con­cern at the mo­ment, and we have had a lot handed in over the Christ­mas and New Year pe­riod. We also have a lit­ter of ham­sters that was handed in to us to take care of.

Not only do we need to re-home them but we need to house the lit­tle things tem­po­rar­ily, too, so if you have an old ham­ster cage or are con­sid­er­ing an up­grade, we would love to have your un­wanted one: we could cer­tainly use it!

Mean­while, over in ‘small furry’ cor­ner, we have Morn, a one-yearold tri-colour male guinea pig, who ended up in our care be­cause his owner didn’t have time to look after him prop­erly.

This cheeky and hand­some lit­tle chap now needs a home where he will get the love and at­ten­tion he so rightly de­serves.

Guinea pigs make bril­liant pets, with their low chirrup­ing and ex­cited squeaks, and just like rab­bits they are very han­dleable.

Speak­ing of rab­bits, we have some of those too. The lat­est from the Mid­dle­sex North-West

branch Lilly is a beau­ti­ful white and brown ‘li­on­head’ va­ri­ety of about three years old who is look­ing for a new home with her long-term com­pan­ion, Rosie, an equally lovely, black rab­bit.

Like all rab­bits, th­ese two friendly girls will re­quire a large, spa­cious hutch and a gen­er­ous sized run with plenty of room to play, stretch and ex­er­cise.

With some­where lovely to live, a nu­tri­tious diet and lots of loving care, Lilly and Rosie would in­deed be happy lit­tle bunnies.

If you think you can of­fer one of our an­i­mals a loving home then please ring RSPCA Hilling­don Branch on 01895 833417 or visit our web­site www. rspc­ahilling­don­ uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.
