We got this plea from across the country for a house bunny desperately
in need of some TLC and rehabilitation and proper socialization:
I have a very spoiled house rabbit of my
own that I've had for over 5 years. So I offered to rabbit-sit my
bosses netherland dwarf six months ago thinking she would eventually
want the rabbit back. He stays outside in my garage. My boss says he
has to stay outside because he will get sick if you bring him in. Now
she says she doesn't want him back. I feel so bad for the rabbit,
Magic. When Magic came to me he arrived in a worn out rusted metal
cage. He had nothing in the cage but a bowl of food and a water
bottle. He was extremely skinny. His nails had never been cut so
they were all curled up and some of his toes were misformed because of
it. He had arthritis in his feet from sitting on cold rusty metal all
the time. His front upper teeth overlap a bit so he has trouble
eating. His owner said he would never eat pellets so they gave him
just vegetables and not even any timothy hay. I cut his nails, washed
his feet, put cardboard in the cage for him to sit on, gave him
pellets with warm pineapple juice on them to softed them up for his
teeth, provided timothy hay and a box for him to sleep in inside his
cage. He has stayed in my garage all winter, even when it was 20
below last week (I put a hot-water bottle and blanket in his cage). I
don't want to bring him inside because I don't want him to get sick
and because he doesn't get along with my house rabbit (she lunges at
him). Also he isn't litter trained.
I don't know what to do with him. I have
been trying to litter box train him but he doesn't get it. Also, he
sprays me every time I go in the garage to feed him. Even from 5 feet
away he manages to spray me. He isn't a mean rabbit. He is very good
tempered and doesn't move a bit when I cut his nails. Magic is about
6 years old we figure. He doesn't hop very well because he was seldom
out of his cage and because I think he has arthritis in his feet.
I want to give him to a shelter because I
can't make a house rabbit out of him and because I only have a one car
garage and I need the space for my car. But I'm worried that no one
will want Magic and he will have to be put to sleep. But maybe
putting him to sleep would be the more humane thing to do than to see
him suffer as he gets older.
I'm really torn. What would be best for
this rabbit with his problems?
