P absolutely love them. Who would not? White, fluffy and soft with that cute little face! Seeing them, touching them is a pleasure, but caring for them is another. Sorry for such a negative attitude towards my/our own pet who just arrived last Friday but I never knew what mess is until they came jumping and humping all around our living room! To top all of that, one of them suddenly jumped into a plastic full of hay and urinated! I never knew they can pass out that big amount of liquid from their bodies!
We had rabbits before when I was living in the Philippines. They just roamed around happily outside some green area in my home. Perfectly happy they were, and so were we. There were no urine or litter we had to sweep or smell.
We don’t have any green, grassy area right now as we are living in an apartment building but still, I took them in, that’s my fault. I never thought that caring for them would mean a little over some ‘extra time’. First, their cage is too small. I had to let them out to the balcony so that they can be just rabbits — play and eat, eat and play. I could not confine them in one small area of their cage. When I woke up this morning, litters were everywhere! They have a litter box I placed in one corner but it appears that they don’t know what was that for. Sigh.
The previous owner said Frosty and Snowball (some name, huh, considering we are in the desert!!) are litter-trained so maybe they are just adjusting to the new environment that is why they can’t seem to find the meaning of the litter box. I searched the internet for rabbit care articles, it got me busy like when I was searching for baby care while I was pregnant! I will be going home today with a little education about rabbit caring, this should make a difference.
Next, rabbit food is running out (I got some from the previous owner) and I don’t have a single idea where to buy!! Panic. Checked out Carrefour and Spinneys, there was none.
Then there’s this thing about me so scared to carry them. Scared of being scratched with their nails or simply not doing it right. Am I crazy or what? My daughter carries the rabbits more confidently than I do. M was looking at me like — why the hell you take these for if you are not even capable of carrying them? uh-uh
I recently met someone with 7, got that? S-E-V-E-N cats!! I wonder if they drove her crazy the first time.
