i have named him larry as if he stays here and gets bonded with mum i have larry and lily then :D

anyway i have bought him indoors in a small dog crate with his litter tray, food bowl and water bottle.
he has had a run around the garden which i will do twice a day for at least half an hour a time. i also plan of letting him around the house but not until he is used to normal house hold noise and movement (and theres alot with 4 kids!) i have been feeding him small amounts of veg from my hand and have put my fingers through the cage without being biten..... yet!
he is now laying down sleeping :D

if he does find a new home it will ONLY be to a experienced rabbit handler but if not he will stay put.

heres some piccies.





butter wouldnt melt? lol

lol looks like the kids have been messing with my cam!!!
ive discovered he actually only bites when you try to stroke him not just for putting hand near him, so must just be fear? dunno how as he has always been handled?

Hmm maybe you should try those rubber arm things rescues use to test dogs before rehoming. Will save your fingers and get him used to being touched again.
LOL yeah i have a cupboard full of prostetic arms pmsl not :D

nah he dont hurt at mo its just a little nip, im sure he will get harder yet but im not letting him think im scared of him or il lose the battle :001_tt2:

Go to your local hospital and ask for an arm :p

Try putting one hand gently on his back and giving him a treat with the other hand so he learns being touched gets him something nice, in time he should be a good boy again.

you could be right as he may feel worried about the fox.
he is fine with noise, my daughter rode past on her skates (yes she is a cow for wearing skates indoors) on the wooden floor and he didnt even flintch.
ok whos for a house bunny :D

LOL if you was nearer then id say come see him :D
i know its so unfair being so far away!! hes so pretty!!!

he looks a lot like the one of the ones at my rescue that i want, i just havnt the space until i move and i have no idea when that will be. people should not be allowed to show cute bunnies on here when i am incapable of taking more.

from now on only ugly buns allowed!!!!!

well im home from work and he is busy jumping around the front room, he is soooo funny!!
i think i need to find him an indoor home as he obviously has issuse about being outside cos of the fox.
he does like to nip and scratch at clothing but still no biting when i stroke him, he only lets me stroke him while in cage not while he is out as he is just too busy to sit still and be stroked lol

Frags i think you shouldl just keep him! I think he is being nasty so that nobody will want him and thats his plan to stay with you and then when you decide to keep him he will be all nice and loving cos he can stay there with you! :D
