Something bunny going on in Kimpton
THIS fluffy quartet who have just been born at a Comet country animal shelter are all in need of names.
The bunnies are being looked after at Kimpton’s Blue Cross, which is running a competition to find suitable names for its latest addition.
The centre has seen a 65 per cent increase in unwanted rabbits being given up this year alone - 109 between January and April this year, compared to 66 in the same period in 2010.
Staff at the shelter are now hoping that they can re-home some of the 11 homeless bunnies they are currently looking after.
It coincides with National Rabbit Awareness Week, which offers visitors to the centre advice on rabbit keeping and how to keep them in good health and meet their behavioural needs.

“Rabbits make fantastic pets, but many people don’t fully understand what they need to keep them happy and healthy,” said centre manager Lynda Campbell.
“Rabbit Week is a great opportunity to meet our homeless bunnies and find out more about them, whether you’re thinking of getting one or already have some at home.”
