Are you prepared for the saddest-looking rabbit, ever?
Hattie was found running around a parking lot. A family who have rabbits themselves saw her, and took the time to catch her and bring her to us.
She arrived filthy and scared out of her mind. She also had ear mites (now treated) and she was a little underweight, although I think that was less neglect and more the fact that no one knows how to feed large rabbits properly. What gets me is her eyes:
It's hard to tell in the photos, but she is a giant breed. She's just a little smaller than my Alice was, so I'd guess her to be around 10-11 pounds. She's got the build of a Flemish Giant (the largest breed), but her white fur and red eyes suggests the New Zealand breed, so I can only guess that she's a mix. I can also only guess that she's an accidental mix, because who would breed those two on purpose? People have enough problems with red-eyed rabbits, they don't want them in giant size.
