Pictures from the rabbit open day yesterday

These rabbits are not up for rehoming—they are permanent residents of the garden which Twigs Way kindly opens in aid of animal welfare charities each year.

As you can see from the photos it is a fantastic educational opportunity for the children who visit (as well as lots of fun) because it shows them how much space and effort is needed to keep rabbits properly.

Even visitors who were knowledgeable about rabbits were quite surprised to see how much use they made of all the platforms and ramps inside the runs. Some of the rabbits in the pictures are actually hopping up to ledges at human eye level so that they can make contact with their visitors. The children were given suitable green foods, such as dandelions and milk thistle so they could feed the rabbits healthy treats.


  1. The photos don't do the event justice! It was utterly delightful, the cakes were delicious, the roses in bloom and the bunnies in excellent spirit. Please keep organising such events! Thank you, Muriel (Bury St Edmunds)

  2. Twigs fund-raises for a different rabbit welfare charity each year—I'll certainly make sure next year's event is publicised here.

    This lot of photos are a bit dark because it was pouring with rain on the Saturday. I've got better ones from Sunday which I'll put up this evening.
