Basil & Benny
7 months old
Litter Trained (mostly)
Basil and Benny are two brothers from the same litter and they are 7 months old. Benny is slightly larger than Basil and is the alpha. They are an inseparable pair, and are often side by side.
Basil and Benny are Lionhead rabbits, they are smaller and more timid compared to other kinds of rabbits (they currently weigh 2-3 pounds each).
They are being fostered with a small dog and a cat and the bunnies are fine with the other animals if they are not bothered (the dog does not care about them at all, the cat was curious and the bunnies were not afraid). Benny showed some aggression towards the cat if the cat got too touchy, which set up good boundaries.
Because these rabbits are smaller and timid, they would not do well with children. They don’t especially enjoy being handled or pet.
Despite their shyness, they enjoy being part of the household. They are house rabbits in the truest sense. They prefer to be free-roaming and are mostly litter-box trained. They need space to run and “binky,” and have loved their foster home’s fenced-in backyard for running around supervised. These two would not do well stuck in a hutch or cage all day.
They are incredibly sweet and cute, and are in need of someone who’s ok with their need for space both emotionally and physically.
