Meet Gino.

He comes to us from the RSPCA Animal Rescue. He is (as far as we can tell) a cashmere lop.

He was neglected and badly matted with scissor cuts to his skin where someone had tried to cut the matts out but had gone beyond the hair. He had made the decision to escape and was found by the side of the road in Rokeby.

I made a great escape from Rokeby once myself so I knew where the tiny guy was coming from…

Let me just say here that:

RABBITS ARE NOT GOOD PETS FOR SMALL CHILDREN
OR LEFT ALONE IN A HUTCH DOWN THE BACK GARDEN.
They need companionship and daily attention.

Noodle is a bit freaked out by him so far so we are taking the introductions very slowly. She remains in her laundry bedroom while Gino is camped out in the loungeroom inside Toby Coates’ playpen (thanks for the loan, Tobs). All contact is closely supervised. He wants to hang out with her – she’s not so keen… yet…
There was a moment of curious grooming, sticking her head through the bars when he was asleep last night

We are slowly getting all the matted bits out with patience and gentle combing. He is super-relaxed, especially considering all he’s been through and is also taking the soft-guy record – previously set by Fazzy – to a new whole new level.

Gino could teach pillows, marshmallows and little baby ducks a thing or two about being soft, that’s all I’m saying…

  1. Softness

    It looks like it might be the International Year of Softness again. Can’t wait to give him a little pat.

  2. Re: Softness

    Well, Fazzy already managed to spin that year out into what we thought may be an international DECADE of softness…

    Gino is helping us keep that hope alive…

    all in the memory of Claude….
