||Deceased, Seven years old|
saw Sophie at an open day at a local animal sanctuary and were told she
had been previously owned by a family with children who had teased her and
made her vicious. The following year we went to the sanctuary again and
saw she was still there. During this time the staff had worked wonders
with her and she was a lot more friendly and trusting. Although we already
had two rabbits, we have a large garden and thought she deserved to have her
forever home so we decided to adopt her.
During her two years with us, Sophie really made progress and turned into
a happy and confident rabbit. She had the run of a large enclosure during
the day and a seven foot hutch at night. She also had a sand pit to dig in,
which she loved. As she was already quite old when we adopted her, we
tried to give her a good life to make up for what she went through in her
past. She eventually passed away through old age.
I would just like to say, adopt from a shelter if possible and don't
overlook the older ones, they deserve a happy life too, and have lots of
love left to give!
