Netherland's Dwarf Bunny~Elliot

Postby keepsmiling » Sun Apr 28, 2013 5:46 am

I found Elliot just before Easter last year...probably a cast off from the year before. :cry: He was in a tiny cage, had overgrown nails...
He is the cutest bun, a Netherland's dwarf. His color is called 'Otter'. The Netherland's dwarf stays small, has short ears, and big eyes, which gives them the look of a baby bunny forever. Elliot is just two pounds. He has a critter nation cage now, with a couple Xpens for exercise. He gets sherwood forest food, good hay, a little fruit and veggies. I went ahead and had him neutered, which helped him litter train, and overall is better for his longevity. I love him to pieces, and don't know how anyone could have just dumped him. Their loss... :icon-wink:

his first cage was a big corner parrot cage I had empty

then we tried a wooden hutch...but it was chewy so he ate it... :lol:

finally, I found a used critter nation on CL, it works well and he still gets to come out to play..I have two xpens now

this Easter we celebrated by going up to a nursing home and handing out sugar free candy to the residents...he was a hit.. icon-smile

Elliot is very good to have found you! I like the little step stool with his name on it, haha. He's very cute.

What a spoiled little bunny! He's so lucky to have you. I really like his "otter" coloring.

He's so cute! And those colors are awesome! I'm a bit afraid of rabbits, but I love
them dearly! I think it was watching 'Watership Down' at too young an age! :lol:

P.S - my rats used that same cage, and it was easy to clean, spacious, and just perfect.
A great investment.

Thanks so much. It is a great cage. Especially since I only paid $100. icon-smile I am sorry you are afraid of them.

I'm obsessed with the novel, Watership Down, and have all the little characters decorating
my desk. It's great to watch the bunnies come out around sunset and nibble the grass, but
General Woundwort is always in the back of my mind!! :lol: :lol:

This is extra amusing because I love to handle snakes, toads, newts, rats,
everything but the bunnies!

Its awesome that you helped Elliot out. I LOVE the cage, its perfect for bunnies! Our first pet ever was a rabbit, named Snuggles but usually she just went by Bunny. She probably had the most personality of any animal I've ever seen or owned EVER. She was awesome, even enjoyed eating meat if she got the chance. Nothing scared her, certainly not our dogs that tried to kill her or loud sounds.

We pet-sat a rabbit that looked just like your bunny. : )
