Just over a week ago my Mum dropped into conversation that she had seen a rabbit in there garden, not a wild one but a 'Pet like' rabbit.
I dropped the children at Mum & Dads whilst I worked last Monday not realising what I would have to face when I picked them up.
They had been 'tracking' the rabbit on and off all day, half attempting to catch it!!!
There house is on a busy main road and we had to all hold our breath as the rabbit wandered up to the edge of the road knowing that at any moment it could be squashed.
I took the children home, but couldn't settle. so with a few extra helpers we visited again with a rescue plan.
Then believe it or not I was the lucky winner, I managed to catch it!!!
We had a pet carrier ready and a temporary home (in a large dog crate ((empty, no dog in)) )
We've visited the vets to have him checked over and also to check if he had been reported missing.
But, no he hadn't!!
We also checked the local pet shop, but no reports of a missing rabbit.
He's had a serious de-flea.
The vets opinion, having been told where we found him was that he had been dumped!!
Its pretty sad really, what sort of person would do that??
So now hes just waiting for us to build him a new hutch!!
So lets meet our new family member, its BB8 (The children are big StarWars fans)
He's pretty cute, isn't he or maybe that should be handsome!!
