Santa joined us on Christmas Eve 2013. He had sadly spent the first years of his life alone in a 4ft hutch. This would be unsuitable housing for any rabbit. However, would not allow a huge 7kg rabbit any freedom of movement at all, which would potentially be extremely damaging to his physical health and happiness.
Santa was sold by his original owner to someone else as a Christmas present for a small child. Sadly, he was surrendered to us only one day later when the mother realised that she had made a big mistake and was unable to care for such a destructive rabbit of this size free range in her home.
Santa is a true gentleman and is often seen with one or more of his very small special needs bunny friends snuggled up to him keeping them warm.
