Hello. For the last month I have been taking care of a dwarf lion rabbit. She (I think) is one of the craftiests creatures I have ever met and I lover her very much. The problem is, well, that I wasn't even planning to have a rabbit. My uncle and cousin came to visit us from germany and, on one of their trips to the open markets, my cousin took a fancy to a tiny bunny and had uncle buy it. Now, they were supposed to go back to germany the very next day. And they did. I now had a new pet which my cousin simply roughly handled all the way to home and quickly lost interest in it. I had to quickly calm it down. I went oustide and found a big bird cage. I knew that it was far too small and that the bunny will outgrow it quickly but this was an emergency. I placed some paper to cover the metal rods and added hay to make it as soft as possible. From above I added some treebranches for her to chew on, some hay and dropped a small piece of corn for her just so she can keep her teeth in check. Water was added on the side via a bird thingy which keeps water. She calmed down and I fed her some greens so she could satart to trust me. In two days I cleaned the aviary, covered it in cardboard, covered in hay, placed a makeshift hide, put a proper water dish, added a full corn, added apple, added a red pepper (whcih she just loves) and brought the whole cage into the enclosure since I didn't want to stress her out by handling her. She jumped out and was really happy (she jumped around a lot). Now, my parents won't let me keep her in the house and my dogs happen to be the kind that would go out and come back with a dead rabbit in tow. I chained my poor sweet boy as he was the most likely to snap her throat. My girl was left to ream as her approach was to gain trust before going in for the kill. Well, now that the backstory is over, hear me out. I don't think that I can keep my rabbit. Winter is close and she is outside. My dog might slip out of his chain (it happened multiple times) or my rabbit might come out (it happend once and both my dogs were out... I was able to pry her out of their cluthces). The aviary is only wide enough for her to stretch twice so I would sometimes chain my girl to let the bunny out so she can run around our yard. But that won't be an option once winter kicks in and the hawks start patroling. I always feed her frehs food and provide her with toys which I make myself. But I don't think she will be happy for long. And she will be in constant danger. I imply wasn't prepared. I love her so very much but I simply don't know what to do... Her name is Грашче. Little green bean in english. My parents said that we should either let her loose into the wild or eat her. I don't want either of those things but there isn't anyone who will take care of her as a pet. Only as food. For those who are wondering, here is a video of her.
