Bunnies hoping to find new home during lunar eclipse this week

Two bunnies are hoping that like the lunar eclipse Friday, their planets will also align to help find them a new paw-fect home.

RSPCA staff at the West Suffolk branch hope that the upcoming astrological event will help bunnies, Luna and Eclipse find a new home.

Luna is a one-year-old lionhead and Eclipse is a one-year-old lop who were taken into RSPCA care when their owners could no longer care for them.

The lunar eclipse – which occurs when the moon passes directly behind the Earth and into its shadow – is due to take place from moonrise on Friday when the country will be washed with a red glow.

RSPCA West Suffolk rehoming coordinator Kerry Horn, said: “We’re hoping that the planets will align for our very own Luna and Eclipse this month and they’ll find a loving new home. Luna and Eclipse are adorable friendly bunnies who have been with us since June.

“They’re both a little nervous at first but Luna likes people once she’s feeling a little more confident. Eclipse can be a little shyer, so we’re hopeful a new owner will be able to build his confidence and get him used to being handled. Both rabbits love being outside and enjoy digging in the garden.”

Both rabbits are neutered and vaccinated, and staff would like them to find a home together.

Staff at the branch suggest that the pair would be suitable for a family home with older children, but would like a home with a large enclosure so that they can play and explore.
