Francis came to Marin Humane Society from another shelter and we have found him to be sweet, mellow, easy to pick-up and a bunny that likes to be petted. He does not like to be held and can be quite squirmy during a nail trim. A calm family with older children that respects that he prefers "four on the floor" would be best for him. He enjoys wicker toys and shredding paper (like old phone books). He does like people attention so his new family should be ready to spend as much time with him as they can.
We don't know anything about Francis' history or his age, but we suspect he's a young bun. Overall he is mellow like most white rabbits with pink eyes. These are usually the best bunnies for most homes.
All rabbits need time outside of their enclosure to burn off energy and to kick up their feet! A long hallway or a room they haven't been in before will do the trick. Getting out of their enclosure for 2-3 hours a day is critical. Not only does it help with boredom, but it helps with moving their food through their delicate system. And make sure to provide a variety of rabbit safe toys. Rotating them will keep them more interested in playing with them.
He should eat unlimited amounts of Timothy, Oat Hay and/or Orchard Grass hay, 2-3 tablespoons of pellets (no dried fruit or nut mixes), a small handful of veggies and an occasional piece of fruit as a treat.
Popsicle and Krispie are friendly, fun, and easy to handle bunnies. They will climb in your lap and hang out. They are cute, active and ready for forever homes. You may recall ACC SF rescued 40+ rabbits from a home in SF that was trying to sell them for meat or pets. See http://www.ktvu.com/news/ktvu-local-news/236576762-story for the story. Many of the underage bunnies – like Popsicle and Krispie – went to foster homes while getting socialized and old enough to be available for adoption.
