Meet our lovable Pets of the Week looking for forever homes at the RSPCA ACT Shelter!

Fidget the lorikeet and Idris the bunny rabbit are this week’s friendly Pets of the Week! These gorgeous animals are waiting to find their perfect match. Think that could be you? Read more about them below.

Bird of the Week – Fidget

Meet Fidget the lorikeet! Fidget was surrendered to the shelter due to a change in her previous family’s circumstances and now is looking for her forever home. This little lady has made it very clear that she would like to be the only creature in her new home; other animals agitate her and she’d rather fly solo. Fidget cannot wait to be spoilt like the precious lorikeet she is.

Fidget is not very well versed in the art of flying, so would prefer a large, fun-filled enclosure to call her own instead of an aviary. Swings, toys, foliage and yummy food will help ensure that Fidget has a happy and enriching life. Fidget enjoys whispering, talking and squawking to anyone who will listen. So be prepared for a new friend ready to chat the day away.

Fidget can be a friendly lorikeet, but only once she gets to know you. She is looking for a parrot-experienced home to forge a forever bond with. Unfortunately, Fidget will not be suitable for a home with children or other animals.

Please note that photographs of your current enclosure must be provided to staff for adoption to proceed.


Idris the bunny is ready to hop on out of the shelter.

Rabbit of the Week – Idris

Idris is a big beautiful bunny ready to hop out of the shelter and find a forever home. This bunny is a curious boy who loves to spend his time giving you a good sniffing. Idris can be a little nervous on first meeting, so needs to be approached slowly. Idris will love a forever home that has plenty of love and patience to give.

Idris likes to explore his surroundings, and his new home will need to offer him lots of space to stretch out his legs. Photos of his new enclosure will need to be provided to staff prior to adoption.

In the past, Idris has had some form of handling and is very calm when held. However, Idris will jump out of your lap to let you know when he has had enough. Idris could potentially live with another bunny, preferably a desexed female rabbit of a similar size, as long as slow introductions are given to ensure they form a forever bond.

Idris could live with sensible older children who will understand and respect his boundaries, allowing Idris to feel comfortable in his new home.

Visit the RSPCA at 12 Kirkpatrick St, Weston, and add a new companion to your life – you won’t regret it!
