We've come to the conclusion that our bird merlow and rabbit billy aren't getting enough attention, since our son was born and also with 3 cats... We aren't providing the atmosphere we'd like for them, it's a shame.. Something of which really upsets my wife, but she knows it's for the best. As do i.

Located in Burton Upon Trent - ya welcome to come see them.. I will also bring the rabbit hutch to you due to the size - providing ya within 15 miles.

So...

Bird:

Called merlow and no idea of the age, she is a cockatiel. Lovely thing, good temperament.

Comes with a cage which also has a stand (med size cage). With any food we have left for her.

Rabbit:

She is called Billy, now she is a real darling.. You can handle without a problem, also likes to wonder around the house.. But mind your wires hehe.

Comes with a rabbit hutch, plus any food we have left.

The important stuff:

We don't want any money, we just want a good home for each.. It's important whoever takes one or both gives us assurances that they'll be taken care of and given the attention they deserve.

Cheers :)

Hehe yerp, they're both great.. Merlow is a nice little fella and Billy is a wonderful bunny.. Will quite happily sit with your on the sofa and climb over your head.

It's just a shame we can't give them that sort of attention anymore, suppose when you have animals you gotta accept that and put them first.. Because if we can find them a place that can give them more love and attention, it's better. With wife getting pregnant (surprize), then little man now being 8 months odd old.. It hit us that perhaps we arent providing that enviroment anymore.

Please don't thread spoil - please only post if you can help spritey find new homes for their animals, thanks. Relevant comments deleted.

Where 28 miles away? I could perhaps stretch that driving wise.

Any sort of comforting words i could tell my wife on the sorta house / enviroment she'd be in if you took her.

Have you tried freecycle in your area? Put freecycle in your puter and find you'r local group, join up have to wait for approval. you can post an add, all stuff is free, In our area we get a lot of pets put on the freecycle. Threre are always people that want to give a pet a home, Hope this is some help.
[Moderator]#8
awww Id would love to give them a nice home but im the other end of the country... good luck OP :)

Edit I dont think Freecycle allow pet... could b e wrong tho
how about Pets at Home, ... might be worth asking

Freecycle is bad enough for giving normal stuff away nevermind a pet, the people on there are like vultures/leaches.


They might be where you are! but they are ok here.

On my local freecycle you are not allowed to put pets on so check with your local first.

I am in Beeston, and would have to talk to my OH to make sure i do not get in trouble if 28 miles is not to far. What sort of stuff you want to know?? Is she a indoor or outdoor rabbit? I know you cant mix and let it out sometimes and in sometimes as it makes them ill so its one or the other lol
I grow my own Veg each year, so should be lots of that about, as i dont like Veg lol
Ask away?

lol i have always had rabbits growing up until i was 25, not had one for 6 years. I have had 1 house rabbit (my last one) My ex got her when we broke up. All the rest (5) have been outside rabbits and most, only not got on with 1 of them lol All of them have been rabbits that come when you call and are quite happy to sit on your lap or next to you for you to stroke, but 1 of them never liked that, and his mate used to be all over me too lol

Pets on freecycle are aloud depending on what one you join some do and some do not, also Pets at home do take rabbits to give a free home, but be careful as i have seen some animals in the same cage for 3 months all alone :(

Our rabbit is indoor and outdoor, was born in a hole outside in august, lived in hutch outside and went on garden each day till Nov/Dec, and now lives in back porch and gets excercise in house, will go back outside again in March.


I was told by a vet thats not good for them, he said its one or the other, he siad it ok for an out door one to come in for a bit in the day but should always sleep outside and a indoor one can go outside in the day but sleep in the house all the time, cos of they can get ill easily and there bodies dont cope that well with the change

Well the porch gets down to 3c at night anyway and after him living in the ground for 4 days with no mum at 2 weeks old I think he'll survive most stuff. But this winter has been too cold to leave him outside. We brought our guinea pigs in for winter aswell and they were ok.


Thats all cool, the reason i found that out was cos i had 2 rabbits, they had babies without us knowing in a hole and mummy died 2 weeks after having them, about 9 years ago so i had get help. Was worried they would not survive but they did :) seems a similar story to yours


OP- Also I have a decent sized house with a big back garden, with Veg plot and lots of grass with 6foot tall solid fences all around

Sounds perfect, I hope you are able to home the rabbit :thumbsup:

Yeah our neighbours neglect their rabbits and leave them out all night etc, and they regually get on the road but they don''t care, it gave birth to 6 in the ground then dissapeared neighbours had no idea, us and another neighbour looked after them, but 2 died, after 5 weeks the neighbours whose rabbit gave birth came round and asked for them, apparently they knew about them but were too busy, we refused to give them one, the other neighbour kept one and they got two back, I wasn't there as I'd have refused.


I have never neglected my pets, out rabbit died cos a Fox got into the garden in the middle of the day when i was living in London (foxes in London have a lot more balls then up here, where you never see them during the day), the babies and dad were in the hole, luckly :( That was the reason my next rabbit i had was an indoors rabbit

I totally agree with you i would not have given them back, and would have told them to go away in a more adult way.

Sounds perfect, I hope you are able to home the rabbit :thumbsup:


Thankyou, and will see what OP says and if i am not to far i will broach the subject with the OH on said rabbit lol
Dam I wish I could drive, glad i am now finally learning though lol
#17
To be honest it sounds fantastic, and due to that id be willing to drive the extra distance.

before you tackle the other half, id like to talk to my wife about it tomorrow night to. just double check shes fine with it, didnt really expect to find someone so soon. so rather mention it tomorrow than now to her.

billy was an indoor rabbit at first, but moved her outdoor after 6 months as we got her the hutch.

nn and ill update ya tomorrows, cheers

OP - Chuckles imo seems like a trustworthy guy. It may be better for peace of mind to stretch that extra 13 mile (26)..

thats cool with me, is she much of a digger?? my fence is that concrete pillers 6ft with the wooden fences sloted between them, I am only asking as trying to work out if she would be worth getting a run as well for ( I have found some rabbits always dig so could do with a run so they have to dig twice to get out lol
That way i can wait until after i cook her a really nice meal after work, hopefully my creeping will go a long way lol

EDIT * Is she Spayed?

Hope all works out spritey
If you were more local I think Mrs W would have been after your rabbit
We've had them in the past and they are great pets to have - we have a 2 (nearly 3) year old and reckon he's about ready for his first "pet"

I've spoken to my wife, she seems happy with it. Well as much as she ever will be, shes still pretty upset but knows its for the best. Needless to say she won't be with me when i drop her off with you lol. But i've told her everything you've says, which has made her feel allot better about it and the knowledge it will be a better enviroment for her.

Digging wise, when we had her out she'd normally just hop around the garden and not dig... But i can't say that for sure, as she's been in the hutch now.

Nope she isn't spayed.

So you can go ahead and ask ya other half if you like :).

Dropping off wise, i'm currently changing cars at the moment to a Renault Espace, so am i able to drop off the bunny with you sometime first week in febuary?

Hi, sorry I had to go out and just been really busy, My OH reminded me we are going away over easter, and it is prob not fair to get a rabbit and have her get used to a new home for 6-7weeks then go away for a week, without propper human handerling her in a new place. As you said your OH and you did not think you would find anyone so fast, think she would like to have her a bit longer until after i get back? Sorry to be a pain in the bum, i totally forgot and my OH is right (on this occasion) lol, Also if thats ok, it would give me some time to build a run for her so at night i dont have to lock her in her hutch i could just let her go in and out when she wants, and let her out during the day to run riot round the garden lol

Its cool, if thats not ok, and if you want to get rid of her sooner then fair enough, but just letting you know whats going on. Just trying to cause less stress :)
