My name is Emma Purnell and I am a Veterinary Nurse and crazy bunny lady! I am the Head Nurse at the Stocks Veterinary Centre in Upton-upon-Severn and Worcester where I have worked since 2013. Along with my dog Jack, I am mum to both rabbits and guinea pigs. This challenge is also in memory of Trouble who passed away 27/12/14, a grumpy old bun who taught me so much. Feel free to join us on Twitter @thehutchbunny and our Facebook event page at

Event details

The Hutch Rabbit 2015

For 48 hours I will be confined to a person-sized 'Rabbit Hutch' equivalent to raise funds for both Fat Fluffs and Windwhistle Warren Rabbit Rescues, but also to demonstrate that rabbits need so much more than the typical hutch of years gone by. I hope to educate people on the correct environment, health, diet and social interactions rabbits need as well as dispelling some of the rabbit care myths. If that means I have to be a bunny eating only muesli and carrots and living in a miserable environment for 2 days then so be it!

Brilliant way to publicise the plight of pets kept in cages that are too small and to raise money for two charties. Good luck x
