Mr. Bigglesworth is an unusual rabbit from Australia who has won the hearts of many people.
VICTORY April 29 – Cassandra Hall from the state of Victoria in Australia saw a local breeder selling small rabbits on a social network. One of the cubs immediately caught her attention. In one photo there was a sentence: “hairless is not for sale. “
Cassandra already had one of her own rabbits, but still contacted the breeder. She asked him if he could send her more photos.
He would spend it
The breeder sent them several photos. He also added that he can donate it for free, as hairless rabbits are not sold. He had to have the previous fur-free rabbit killed.
Cassandra went to the breeder the next day, and when she returned, she had a small creature with her. He reminded the new family of a hairless cat in the Austin Powers movies, so they named him Mr. Bigglesworth.
From the beginning, the family was worried about a new memberbecause they did not know if his health was good. They tried to find something about similar cases on the Internet, but without success.
Cassandra later shared photos of Bigglesworth on Instagram hoping that one of the rabbit owners or experts will contact and advise her.
Mr Bigglesworth is in good health
It has been shown that if there are two rabbits and both have the ff gene (hairless gene), they will produce hairless pups in each litter. That was the case with Mr Bigglesworth. Most of these bunnies live only 4 weeks.
“Mr Bigglesworth is in very good condition due to his condition,” Cassandra told the portal Bored Panda. However, Bigglesworth has a high metabolism. Because of this, it eats much more than an ordinary rabbit. He is regularly checked by a veterinarian every 6 months.
He's listening to the name
“If he cools down, he shakes like a human being,” revealed its owner. “His skin is like a child's, it is super soft and if it is scratched, we lubricate it with healing ointment. He is trained to go to the toilet and use the toilets for kittens” she added.
Mr. Bigglesworth obeys his name and runs quickly after the call. “Rabbits are very intelligent animals and need to be taken care of properly, they have to be able to play a lot because they can be destructive.” Cassandra explained.
The rabbit also has its own brand and its owners donate part of the money they receive to various charitable purposes. “Our last gift was to wildlife affected by fires in Australia,” Cassandra said.
He also takes the rabbit to schools in their vicinity and tells children about bullying.
