Massive domestic rabbit has its own two-story house

Willow, the continental giant rabbit, is no ordinary bunny but has gotten used to the finer things in life.

The year-old continental giant lives in a spacious two-story bunny house, complete with heaters, chairs, curtains, a radio and even a bunny bed by the window with pretty garden views.

Far from your average rabbit hutch, Willow’s mini palace is beautifully painted and decorated, and her young owner Gemma Seymour, 10, even brings her pet some fresh flowers.

Gemma from Aldeburgh, Suffolk, dubbed ‘Mini Doctor Doolittle’ by her parents, makes sure Willow is well taken care of, bringing her all the treats and toys the floppy-eared lady of the manor could wish for.

Parents Layden-Grant Seymor, 51, and Frances Seymour, 49, say Gemma had a love of animals from a young age and has always cared for injured birds and insects.

Company boss Layden-Grant said: “Willow is a very spoiled rabbit, she eats all the treats there is and she has so many toys for a rabbit.

‘She has her own two storey house in the garden, Gemma wanted the house rabbit to be friendly and cosy. It is colorfully painted and decorated with garlands.

“There’s a rug and a lot of hay in there. It also has electric heating and heat lamps. Gemma always cuddles her and gives her every treat.

“She is brought into the house regularly, she actually causes less damage than the children. Willow definitely eats more than a normal rabbit, we use over 10kg of rabbit food a month, I would say she weighs about a stone now and she’s only one”.

Her owner Gemma has loved animals from an early age



They added: “She eats her way through the garden but her favorite snack is dandelion salads. She chewed the wires on the Christmas tree last Christmas, she’s quite mischievous sometimes.

“We used to have two giant rabbits but unfortunately one was attacked by an owl and died of shock so Willow has the house to herself now. However, Gemma quickly realized that rabbits like to chew everything.

“The curtains and chairs and both were chewed. Gemma also put an Alexa in the house to play music, but Willow chewed through that wire too, so there’s now a battery radio instead.

“Her bedroom is upstairs with a window view so she can always see what’s going on outside. Willow is also free to roam the garden, she does a great job trimming the shrubs for me. Gemma always puts fresh flowers in the house too”.

Willow enjoys gathering with the family for a Sunday roast



With nine children, Taylor, 23, Oliver, 20, Morgan, 19, Aston, 17, Jensen, 15, Tristan, 13, Gemma, 10, Xavier, 7, the family home can get quite hectic at times.

However, Gemma makes sure Willow isn’t left out even during busy mealtimes.

Layden-Grant continued: “We have home cooked meals and of course Willow has a bowl too, she loves a Sunday roast with all the veggies and leaves.

“She’s like a cross between a rabbit and a dog, she’s so intelligent. We used to have dogs but decided we just wanted a low maintenance pet, Willow is so easy to make and great with kids.

“For just over a year old, although she is a very large rabbit. She’s at least a meter long, when she’s stretched out she’s the same length as my four-year-old son Radley.”
