Sex: Holly - female, Barberry - male
Age: Born Spring 2022

Size: Holly - small lop, Barberry - medium crossbreed

Neuters: Holly - 12/8/22, Barberry 20/5/22

Vacs: Barberry - 15/4/24, Holly 11/8/23

Reason for arrival: Holly was handed into a vets in Derby as a juvenile, so either had been dumped or was an unclaimed stray. Barberry was born here when his mum (Bryony) was handed in from a vets in Mapperley heavily pregnant, unclaimed stray/dumped. He was adopted last Summer with one of his sisters but she unfortunately passed away last Autumn and his adopter handed him back to bond him to a new partner (Holly) with the intention of adopting them as a pair, but backed out after they were already bonded so they're looking for a new home together

Temperament with people: Both run over to the door for food, happy to sit eating near me but move away if attempting to stroke. If they know they're going to be picked up (for vets or nails etc) they do back away but aren't physically hard to handle.

Diet: A mix of Hay Box timothy and local meadow hay (not bagged pet shop hay), various wild plants such as plantain, wood avens, young brambles, dandelions, yarrow, apple leaves, strawberry leaves, geraniums, hazel leaves, willow etc. Also enjoy dried mixes of flowers/wild plants/herbs and fresh grass. They occasionally had some cold pressed grain-free pellets during the winter months but none now we're into Spring


Type of home needed: They currently live outdoors but could also live indoors. We highly recommend that indoor homes set up a UVB light for rabbits for vitamin D
