Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Flori

Posted on July 28th, 2017 by Laura Fonda


Flori is a happy, hoppin’ bunny! She is a smart and opinionated female, which makes her so special. She loves things tidy and loves to explore. She enjoys playtime, hopping all over people and chewing. Wood objects and cardboard box forts are her favorite toys. She communicates what she likes and dislikes.

Flori’s foster parents think she is very entertaining and loves to snuggle up next to them. She loves to be doted on. Do you want some personality in your life? Come meet Flori!

House rabbits need a large, rabbit-proofed indoor area of your home to live in, with covered areas to hide and relax. Rabbits are intelligent and social animals; they do best with a rabbit companion, and need daily interaction with their human friends.

Rabbits should be fed high-quality hay pellets, unlimited hay, and fresh leafy greens. (Leaf lettuce, carrot tops, parsley, cilantro, and pesticide-free dandelion are good choices.) Treats include small portions of carrot or fruit, such as apple, berries, pear, grape, or banana.

Your rabbit will need regular nail trims and vet checks. With proper care and lots of love, rabbits can live to be 10-12 years old. You are expected to make a lifetime commitment to your bunnies, and they should be treated as an integral part of the family.

The primary caregiver must be a responsible adult, and young children should always be supervised when interacting with your bunny and instructed on proper approach and handling. Household cats or dogs should, of course, also be carefully supervised at all times and introduced in a calm and quiet manner.

If you are interested in adopting Flori (SAS ID # 33916646) please fill out a Small Animal Application available at the Shelter or online and then meet with an animal care officer for review. The Seattle Animal Shelter is located at 2061 15th Ave W. in Seattle.
