‘Wonky’ Alice in Wonderland bunny is abandoned with a heartbreaking note

A massive rabbit bigger than a dog which was cruelly dumped in a box alongside a childlike note is hopp-ing to find a new home.

The large white rabbit, weighing in at a whopping 5.1kgs, was handed into an animal hospital after being found huddling in a cardboard box in a busy city centre, with a note claiming the floppy-eared invalid had a broken leg and his owners couldn’t afford the vets bills.

Nurses at the Blue Cross animal hospital in Grimsby, North East Lincs., were so taken by the lame lapin they nicknamed him Nivens McTwisp – after the white rabbit in the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland.

Nivens was discovered in Grimsby, Lincs., at around 8.30pm on July 24.

The note was left in the box

The accompanying note appears to have been written by a child, it reads: “This Rabbit has been dropped, we think its leg may be broken.

“We are sorry we can’t look after, we aren’t capable. We hope it is ok.”

The note is unsigned.

Despite clearly having a ‘wonky leg’ vets say Nivens is pretty nippy, so to stop him from getting lost staff at the hospital take him out on a lead, not unlike a dog, which he loves.

Nivens McTwisp has an injured foot but it doesn’t stop him getting about

According to surgery staff, Nivens is a laid back time rabbit who loves cuddles and hopping around on the grass, he enjoys going out on walks.

Unlike Bugs Bunny, Nivens doesn’t like carrots but is content to munch on kale, swede, apples and grass.

His x-rays show that his leg issue is either an abnormality he was born with or a very old injury he has just adapted to.

Staff say it can’t be fixed, but as Nivens McTwisp seems content enough on his lead to walk about and not in any pain they are fine for him to go off to a Blue Cross re-homing centre in a day or two, where a new home, with a loving family, will be found for him.
