In 2005 I decided to
get a pet. I read about different animals and decided to
geht a rabbit or rather two rabbits because rabbits are family
animals and they need a partner. I looked through the websites
of the different animal shelters and then a saw a picture
of Paul and read his discription... he was an old rabbit,
already in the shelter for half a year and he liked being
cuddled. So I went there and it was love at first sight ^_-.
So he and his friend Paula moved in.
I go to the same vet like the owners of Paul
used to go so I know his story. He was in one family for
nearly 7 years. For some reasons at some time he got inconvinient
and he was brought to the vet too euthanize because he was
so old and would die anyway. As far as I know he was not
seriously ill, he had a long history of fungal skin infection.
When he came to me he only had an eczema at the chin. After
a lot of tests and hearing opinions of different vets we
decided that it must be a chronical inflammation because
he has a large jowl and always lies on it, so it is warm
and sweaty and can't heals properly. We also found an ointment
I'm very happy with Paulchen and he is my
"Knuddelkaninchen".. he loves being cuddled and
sometimes sits on my lap for hours. When I go into the kitchen
he is close behind me in hope of getting something to eat...
