I got my bunnies from a farm in Wisconsin. Sad to say, the condition of the rabbits there were so bad. They were living in a small shed and it was so filthy. There were piles of poop on the ground. When I asked for a female rabbit, the owner showed us Yuna. He commented that he forgot that he even has her. Footfoot was housed with another buck. He had a lot of scars and scabs from the bites of the other rabbit. We felt so bad for him. I was only going to get one rabbit but ended up rescuing Footfoot too.
When we got home, Yuna was not eating for 2 days. I took both of them to the vet. Yuna's nose was crusty. The vet said that she couldn't smell her food. She also had some ulceration on her nose. She was given antibiotics for her snuffles. Footfoot was also put on antibiotics for his wounds. The vet said that she had never seen a rabbit with that many bites before. Poor Footfoot.

This was Footfoot temporary cage before he got neutered.




This was Yuna's cage.



I made their new home yesterday

Wow, two very LUCKY Bunnies. And very very CUTE Bunnies

What a lovely cage very roomy. I'd be a little afraid that they would jump out of it though. Especially they could jump on the carrier then out of the cage. I had a small Bunny "Angel Buttercup" that was quite the little jumper.

Looking forward to more pictures and stories of your two Beauties.

Susan

Great set up!and what beautiful bunny's. That's great you rescued Footfoot too, it would be hard for me to have left a bun in those conditions.

Poor bunners, but it looks like they are living the hi-life now!

One night my 3 year old went to my room and told me that Yuna was upstairs at 3 am! It turned out my 5 year old opened the cage while we were all upstairs and ready to sleep. He said he closed it though. I took Yuna to her cage again and found the cage wide open. Footfoot was out too and there was poo everywhere in the living room. I put them back and secured the cage. 2 days after, I woke up and found Footfoot out again, but the cage was locked. He jumped out! I made the cage 3 panels high after that, no more escapists! Hehe!

I made their cage smaller to help with litter training. So far, their cage is clean and they poo and pee in the big litter box with high edges. I hope this set up will work better.



My beautiful Footfoot




My beautiful Yuna



They've been out of their cage for an hour now. So far, no poop/pee on the carpet
