Last Friday I received an email from the breeder I bought my English angoras from two years ago. She saw two of her rabbits listed on an internet classified ad that were being given away because the person could no longer take care of them and they lived in the same general area as we do. I picked them up the same day and brought them home...which meant a total re-arrangement of rabbit living quarters!
Iccarus, above, needed some serious help. His hair was so matted to his legs and chest that I couldn't feel his bones beneath the hair. He had to be shaved from his feet across his chest and down his other leg. He took it all pretty well and is a very sweet boy. (I had to buff up on my Greek mythology to figure out his name)
