3 year old Bonnie is certainly the boss here at Furlock Holmes. She is fully of attitude and confidence - she certainly thinks she's more human than bunny! At around 5.5kg, Bonnie is not small and has been known to chase dogs, climb onto tables and even sleeps in bed with her human! Bonnie is a firm favourite of everyone.

Benson is a 2.5 year old Chocolate Angora rabbit. At around 4.5kg, Benson isn't small, but he doesn't seem to realise how big he really is! Benson loves to squeeze into small spaces and cardboard boxes with his friends, but his main passion is sleeping... Benson LOVES to sleep!
Mittens is a very special rabbit who came to us due to health problems. We soon found that Mittens had severe dental issues and had to have her incisors removed. Mittens is a tiny girl who, despite all she has been through, absolutely loves her visits out! She is a very easy-going, happy bunny.

6 year old Jemima was one of the first bunnies to join the Furlock Holmes Animal Visit team. Jemima particularly loves visiting nursing/care homes and will happily settle down for a long snooze on someone's lap. Jemima lives with the big boys - Dobby and Benson - but she is very much the boss!
Like the majority of animals on our Animal Visit team, Hercules was a rescue who came to Furlock Holmes from pretty horrible circumstances. Poor Hercules had his ears torn up and was tiny (hence the very ironic name). Hercules also suffers from diabetes which we control through his diet, but this means he is with us as a permanent resident and will never be rehomed.
Audrey, Barbara, Clementine, Doris, Edith, Florence, Gloria, Henrietta, Irene, Jane, Kevin, Lucinda, Maureen, Nancy, Octavia, Petunia, Ruth and Stuart are Pekin Bantam and Silkie chickens. They love a cuddle and are very popular out on visits - they have even been known to settle down and lay eggs on children's laps!

Aragorn, Legolas and their friends are Giant African Land Snails. Aragorn and Legolas are the biggest with a shell diameter of around 12cm, Gimli and Gandalf are around 8cm and Turbo and Flash are only 1cm - but all six of them are still growing! These snails are fascinating and always get people chatting. Kids seem to love the slimy feeling of a snail sliding up their arm!

Ginger Ninja has been at Furlock Holmes since December 2018 and she is now a year old. She is a very confident little hamster with a gorgeous, velvety coat. Ginger Ninja is famous for doing acrobatics across her cage and her ability to escape (she always seems to turn up in the food bin)!
Groot was rescued from very horrible circumstances and was very nervous around people. Now, however, he has discovered that people are not as bad as he first thought! Groot enjoys sitting on your shoulder and building nests in his cage. Groot can only be handled by adults, but he is fun to watch for children and enjoys a stroke and treat!
