Datura (bonded To Belladonna)
Rabbit * Spayed/Neutered * Female * 11 Months Old
Datura and Belladonna were they were found together as strays and little is known about their background. They were both a little nervous when they first arrived but each day they become more and more confident.
Since coming into our care, these two bunnies have slowly been developing their own personalities and coming out of their shells. Datura is the braver of the two and tends to be more curious about her surroundings. Belladonna is a little shyer and depends on Belladonna to show her the way and make her feel more confident. These two bunnies have truly bonded and are searching for a home together.
If you are looking for a clean friendly family pet that is relatively easy to care for, does not require a daily walking schedule, and won't tear up your furniture, consider adopting rabbits into your home.
As with any pet, make sure you do your research to make sure a rabbit is the right pet for you, and that you choose a suitable rabbit for your lifestyle and personality. Some rabbits, such as angoras, require a lot of grooming and take more time to care for than short-haired rabbits. Most have a lifespan of 10 years, and live longer if they are kept indoors. It is important to evaluate the long-term commitment of caring for a pet rabbit.
It is important to be very gentle when handling rabbits because they have a delicate bone structure and can easily injure themselves. When a rabbit is scared or struggling to be free, it will try to escape using its powerful hind legs. However, because of the weak bone structure the rabbit could break, fracture or dislocate its backbone by overextending the spine as it kicks. If your rabbit is struggling when you are holding it, put it down to avoid injury.
Never pick up a rabbit by the ears or stomach. Instead, put one hand under the front of the rabbit and support its rear and hind legs with your other hand.
When you first adopt your rabbit, hold it for short periods of time so it grows accustomed to being handled.
Please note: All pets are ultimately the responsibility of the adults in the home, not the children. Until you, as an adult, are ready for the commitment of caring for a new pet, don't let your kids' pleas challenge your resolve.
