Theo's Thoughts


Hello everyone! Theo here, a rabbit resident at the Home. I feel really privileged that I’ve been given a blog of my own to talk about everything going on here.

While I sit in my pen with a good piece of cabbage, I hear all the latest news and gossip from all my friends, staff and visitors who pass by.

I really hope you enjoy what I will be rabbiting on about.

Spooky Season!

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Hello everyone!

A great design for a pumpkin!

A great design for a pumpkin!

It’s coming to the end of October and you know what that means…Halloween!! I love seeing the humans dress up for sweets, but please don’t wear anything too spooky as your pet may not be able to recognise you and might become very scared. Also make sure you don’t leave any sweets or chocolate lying around for us to nibble on, as it may not be good for our health.

Talking about being scared; Bonfire night will be here soon and my furry friends and I always get frightened when those lights explode in the sky – fireworks I think they’re called. They make such a loud noise and the flashing lights are really scary! The staff here are great at making us feel safe and happy, but if you have any pets of your own please make sure to shut all the windows and curtains, and keep your pets in a safe and secure place whilst the fireworks are going off. You can find more information by clicking here.

On a more pleasant note, our latest edition of Bristol Animal News will be out shortly. I had a sneaky peak through it and saw some great ideas for Christmas. For a start there are not just Christmas cards for sale this year -there is also a 2015 Desk Calendar featuring some of my friends at the home; watch out for October, he’s a scary fella!

As always, I love chatting to my four-pawed pals at the home, and finding out how they’re getting on with finding new homes. My buddy Dom is desperately looking for a new family since he came in as a stray. His favourite thing in the world is playing fetch with tennis balls, but I have to get the humans to throw the ball as I can’t throw very far. If you want to see Dom, check out our YouTube video. I hope you fall in love with him, just like I have.

Until next time my not-so-furry friends.

RAW - Because Rabbits Get a RAW Deal!

Monday, May 12th, 2014

Apologies that you haven’t heard from me for a while folks, things have been very busy down here and I’ve hardly had a stick of celery to myself.

I have however been keeping my ear to the ground for all of the latest gossip and have recently had quite a few chats with the humans. (more…)

Not the best start to 2014!

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Not long after the festive period we welcomed in the New Year to the sound of the rain pitter-pattering outside. Now normally this isn’t much of a problem as the centre provides us with comfy warm beds - but this felt a little different…

Christmas is coming to Bristol Dogs and Cats Home!

Friday, November 15th, 2013

Now those pesky fireworks have stopped we’ve been able to pull our paws out of our ears and start our festive countdown. This week at the centre we have all been busy hopping around and making last minute preparations for this Weekend’s Christmas Fair. After the success of last year’s event we are all working hard to make the 2013 Fair even better!

Hoppy Christmas Everybody!

Happy Halloween Ho’mans!

Whistling winds, a drop in temperatures, changing leaf colours- autumn has definitely arrived! Whilst many are preparing for their spooktacular Halloween events, we’re one step ahead busily organising our Christmas Fair! (more…)

All this exercise could leave you RAW!

Hello everyone! Theo the rabbit here,

Well, it’s August already and I’ve really enjoyed hearing all about the Olympics. I’ve even been hopping and running around just in case rabbits are ever allowed to enter! One thing I know is that for you lucky humans out there who have been inspired to have a bit of a run, there is a great opportunity for you to participate in the Bristol Half Marathon taking place on 30th September. (more…)

It’s July already…really?!

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Hi all,

Wowee what crazy weather we’ve been having! It can’t seem to make up its mind. Maybe we should remind Mother Nature that it is now July! If the weather does finally break and we see a bit of summer, don’t forget to think about how the heat might affect those of us with inbuilt thermal clothing! (more…)
