Archimedes Scares Us All

We had a bit of a scare on Saturday at the Rescue. I arrived to find Archimedes acting very much out of character. For a start, rather than racing to meet me as he usually does, he instead wandered off and showed no interest in the armfuls of food I was carrying.

After treating him for stasis, the photo above was the moment in the afternoon when we he finally started to eat again and the volunteers all let out a collective sigh of relief. And then, of course, a few hours later he was leading a raid on the snackbarrow.

It turns out Archimedes has been losing weight, so we suspect something unpleasant is going on somewhere in that big fluffy lump of bunny, he is booked in to see the vet tomorrow. Fingers and paws crossed it is nothing serious.

  1. Poor Archimedes. Climbing up and down into the wheelbarrow can't be good for him. He should learn to just tip it over. (I know - I have all the bright ideas for bunnies. Aren't you glad I'm on the other side of the planet?)

    Hopefully Mister Fluffalot is okay and will be back to cleaning you out of treats ASAP.
