ADOPTED!!

Ashley from Saint Johns

UPDATE: Asher has been adopted by a loving family and *she (turns out he was a girl!) will join 3 cats. She is making herself well at home and is getting desexed, vaccinated etc today! Thank you for everyone’s support!!

Hi neighbours

Meet Asher, a white male bunny we are currently fostering that’s about 6mths old. He has settled in over the past few days and is really friendly, curious and loves exploring - which is amazing considering he came from a pretty rough home beforehand. So we feel that he is now ready to find the most loving forever home that he deserves ❤️

A little bit about him:
- He loves being pet and will come onto your lap for food ☺️. But you need to patient and wait for him to trust you.
- He would do best in a home where he has the opportunity to run around outside his hutch for a good period of the day, since he is a curious and adventurous little guy. He is currently in our bathroom and loves the space.
- In his previous home, he grew up with another male bunny who sadly died last week because they were being kept outside in the freezing cold with inadequate housing. His ideal home will have another bunny or other small animal that he could be with all day and cuddle with. It was heartbreaking because apparently he was cuddling up with his dead friend when they were found the next morning. This is why he came into our temporary care.
- He should be kept inside at night for probably the coldest 5-6mths of the year. While rabbits have their fur for insulation, BUT they stand no chance if they get wet since they can’t insulate once they get wet. Even if he’s kept under a “covered” verandah or the like, the powerful wind-driven rain we get in Auckland will still make it’s way too cold for him if kept outside.
- While he would love to befriend a child, he would still like to be the ultimate responsibility of a loving and responsible adult. In his previous home he was a “gift” for a child, who then tired of him and his late friend. This was something that contributed to their atrociously poor care.
- He is very brave and the vacuum doesn’t phase him, although dogs barking will send him into hiding
- He is very interested in our cat and likes to try touching his nose to the cat's nose. He is very confident with our cat.
- He will do most of his business in a litter box, but has tiny accidents sometimes. But easily mitigated and rabbit doo doo is literally just digested grass/veges so not gross at all
- I haven’t trialed him outside yet, but I’ve been told that he doesn’t run away

IMPORTANT:
He must be desexed and vaccinated by his new family. I will need proof of this. I've been told that Great South Vets is the most cost effective.

Thanks for reading to the end of this long post! He is truly such a sweetheart and we would love to keep him but we already have a cat and dog so we are just not the most ideal home for him.

If you’re interested in giving him a forever home, please get in touch and tell me a little bit about yourself. Then you can come meet him :). I would also like to see his new home before he moves in permanently.

If you’re NOT in the position to adopt him, he would love any donations of hay or any other rabbit products you no longer need - so they can accompany him to his forever home when the time comes!

Cheers
Ashley

Who will Goff pick as his "cabinet" ?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, Phil Goff arrived back to work to an emptied office on Monday, to start work on his second term as mayor. He has to choose who will be his key lieutenants - the chairs of the main committees. Do you think he should also put councillors back on the board of Auckland Transport? See the story below:
