Two of our rabbits, who are now our longest residents within the rescue service, are so keen to find their loving family that theyâ€™ve asked their foster carer to share their story with us.
Mork & Mindy are an excellent bonded Rex pair. The Rex breed, originally bred for fur, is a unique breed due to their velvet-like fur, which is only found in this breed.
Mork tells his story.
My name is Mork. I am a sweet rabbit. I enjoy a wee pat first thing in the morning to say hello. I enjoy hops and skips and putting on a show. When Iâ€™m relaxing I roll on my side. Iâ€™ll let you know when I want something. I donâ€™t like the hoover much, and Iâ€™m terrified of money getting counted (the sound of coins in a pocket, hand or purse). I may be a little shy for a while, but give me a chance as Iâ€™m a little more nervous than Mindy.
My favourite pastime? Eating. My favourite foods include: rabbit pellets, kale, banana (a tiny amount as a treat), parsley, broccoli, pear (a tiny amount as a treat), water melon (tiny treat), loads of chunky/rough hay. Iâ€™m not that keen on spring greens & spinach, although I will eat it.
Please make sure foxes canâ€™t get us as they are clever, and will find a way!
I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you in my new home
Mindy tells her tale.
My name is Mindy. I am more independent than my brother Mork, and Iâ€™m not as nervous as him. I can be quite ruthless when it comes to food â€“ apologies for my rudeness if I accidentally nip you thinking your finger is part of my food. Iâ€™ll soon get used to you and learn to tell the difference between my dinner and your attention.
I love to climb stuff and go wandering for a wee while, but once Iâ€™ve had my stretch Iâ€™ll soon return to base. I take a bit longer to get used to a wee pat from you, but once we know each other this will soon get easier.
I love sorting out all the shredded newspaper in my litter box. I very rarely jump and skip, but who knows maybe I will if I get a nice lawn to play on.
Just like Mork, my favourite pastime is eating, but Iâ€™m not as fussy as he is â€“ I will eat anything and everything!
When I want something Iâ€™m not slow at letting you know, so donâ€™t be surprised if I get grumpy when my bowl gets empty or want a bit of attention. Keep me accustomed to the good life Iâ€™m used to and Iâ€™ll play nice 😉
Both Mork & I are fully litter trained, and I am very house proud! I canâ€™t stand a messy area and I make sure he keeps himself tidy too. Give us a litter tray and weâ€™ll make things easy for you.
