    I'm so glad she's feeling better! It's always such a worry when they're not their normal selves :(

    Keep improving, Poppy! :) xX

    It's nice to hear news that has a good ending, so thank you for sharing!!

    When she goes back outside, do snuggle up her up in lots of straw and hay. A fleecy balnket will help too - and a snugglesafe if you have one. Oh and keep her covered up, to keep the wind out.

    According to the forecast, it is going to be very cold by the end of the week, and bunnies don't cope all that well with temperature changes.

    Sometimes bunnies come in for a bit, and just end up becoming house buns!!

    Poor Poopy & poor you! So pleased to read that things are improving. I can empathise with having to bring an outdoor bun inside to nurse and know what a huge relief it is when things start getting better!
