Type of pet
May we present you guys our little precious Parsley, a wild cottontail rabbit.
We found him my boyfriend and i in our backyard very badly injured and he was just a baby of few weeks old.
We brought him to the vet and from then we took super care of him..we just fell in love with!
Parsley is currently 8 months old and believe it or not now is everything but wild.
Since he had appeared in our life we’ve been treating him as a pet, letting him stay always at home with his toys, his litter tray where he always goes when he needs to (I love it) and his bunny bed.
He loves playing with us when we lay on the floor, he loves climbing on our backs.
Sometimes he wants to be picked up, sometimes not. When he wants to he’s very relaxed on our arms, he wants cuddles on his tiny head, on his back and as soon we stop it he starts leaking (kissing) our hands, fingers. Such a sweet little boy!
I can stay hours talking about him with tears at my eyes. Tears because i don’t want to leave him, but something not very pleasant happened in our birth country and we got to leave on the 21th April of this year for more or less 5 months away.
I rather prefer leaving him to somebody who can take care of him here in nz in the mean while we are away, than taking him with us and making him do 20.000 km to Italy plus the return( other 20.000 km), on a cargo plane and just risk to loose him because of my life plans have suddenly changed.
Just so unfair for Parsley.
Guys please feel free to come at our house and meet Parsley so you can see him how is doing and decide then if help him, to help us because if put back in the wildness he won’t survive to the predators, cold etc etc. He doesn’t know basically nothing of it and these are the vet words.
He has been too much spoiled in a warm and cuddling house with any type of comfort, food and attention for him. We got the confirmation more than once when our house doors were opened with our big green garden just there …and he was there, at the door, staring at it few seconds and hop back to what he was doing in the house. Just like a pet!
Please help us guys. We can also pay for his food, it is not a problem at all.
Thanks, Vanessa and Davide 🙂
