THESE adorable pets are look­ing for a lov­ing home and are cur­rently being fos­tered in Con­gle­ton. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion or if you’re in­ter­ested in adopt­ing, please call 01625 669620 or email smal­l­an­i­mals@ rspca-mac­cles­ uk. Name: Basil and Bayleaf. Sex: Male. Breed: Lion­head rab­bits. Age: Young adults. Colour: Basil (black/ brown) and Bayleaf (white/grey). What type of home would be suit­able?: Meet Basil and Bay leaf, two very hand­some fel­las. They were res­cued by the RSPCA when eight rab­bits were found dumped in a cage, sadly four had to be eu­thanised un­der wel­fare grounds. They were un­der­weight and Bayleaf in par­tic­u­lar had quite bad hair loss, we sus­pect from being at­tacked by other rab­bits. He had a bite that has just about healed. Both have been mi­crochipped, neutered and vac­ci­nated. It seems Basil is the more con­fi­dent one and Bayleaf is quite shy. They en­joy their food and will come for a nosey when you open their hutch. They are still very timid so will need gen­tle en­cour­age­ment with food to be­come more con­fi­dent with peo­ple. They have been fine around dogs and cats and don’t seem fright­ened of them. Al­though Bayleaf doesn’t have much of a mane yet this seems to be grow­ing back. As they are both rather timid we are look­ing for a home for them with­out any young chil­dren. Hous­ing re­quire­ment is a ‘min­i­mum’ sized 6x2x2ft hutch with a min­i­mum ‘at­tached’ 8x4ft run plus free­dom to a se­cure gar­den/al­ter­na­tive area for stim­u­la­tion.
