Sad news, sad times

Post by Tris » Sat, 15 May 1999 04:00:00



Dear Group,

I have a serious, and sad problem for which I need advice.  You might
remember that I inherited my mom's bunny (Fudgie) when she passed away two
months ago.  Although I am highly allergic to him, we've been struggling to
get along and enjoy each other.

Only a few weeks after my mom passed away, though, my dad was diagnosed with
pancreas cancer in addition to the emphysema and lung disease he's already
afflicted with.

Dad is very ill now, and the doctors say we HAVE to get rid of the animals.
Dad is on oxygen and having a difficult time breathing at the best of
times.. the animals are making it all but impossible for him to be
comfortable at home.

Dad and I are heartbroken, and neither of us will consider giving Fudgie to
anyone but a bunny-person (mom originally rescued him after some kid got him
for Easter then abandoned him to the pound)

Please help me find someone willing to take in a very lovable, 5 year old
large bunny?  It must be someone who will keep him indoors (he's never been
outside) and who will love him.  I have a brand new, largest sized hutch,
plus food and 25 lbs. of fresh Oxbow Timothy to help start him off with a
new owner.

People nearby have suggested other "options"  (meaning that Dad is more
important than the rabbit so we should just dump him) and although, yes, Dad
is top priority, I will not hurt Fudgie either.

Suggestions, advice, leads in my search for a loving home for Fudgie would
be greatly appreciated!  (PS- Fudgie and I live on Long Island, in New
York,)

Thank you group.. you have been so helpful already, I knew if there was a
way.. maybe someone here would know...

Trish & Fudgie

Trish, unfortunately I'm in WI and 2 buns are already too much to handle,
otherwise I would offer to take Fudgie for you.    I am sooo sorry to hear
what you're going through, especially so soon after losing your mom.

You, your father and Fudgie are certainly in my thoughts.  I hope you're
able to find a good home for him.

Mary

Hi Trish,
     I am very sorry to hear about your father's health and your allergies.
I know it is harder to give Fudgie up because she was your mom's. There are
a couple of people around this group who live in the NY area and may know
someone who could take him. But, maybe it would be nice, if you could find a
responsible person  around your area, so you could still see Fudgie. Then
you would still have your mom's memories with you. I know that is easy to
say. Do you have any candidates you could ask? We will keep you in our
prayers, I know this is difficult. Tell your father we are thinking of him.
Lots of Love to you all

So sorry to hear about your Father, Trish.  We hope that you can find someone to
help you out with Fudgie.  (We live in Illinois, sorry.)

Trish,

You're going through a very bad time right now.  I'm so sorry that you have to
deal with so much.  I wish that I could respond to your plea for help.
Unfortunately, I live on the other side of the continent.  Hang on, something
will come your way.  Perhaps, you could foster out Fudgie so that you could be
with him later on when things settle down a bit.  Do you know a vet that could
board him for a while?  Just an thought.

Cindy.

I am thinking in adopting Fudgie, but I live in Upstate New York.  Would you be
able to drive him up here or meet us somewhere?  And by the way, is he
neutered?
Thanks and I hope you dad is feeling better,

Hello Ashley,

I hope it works out for you and Fudgie. That would be wonderful!

I remember your first post and I am so sorry to hear about your fathers
health, and having to give up Fudgie. I would consider adopting him, but I
am all the way over on the west coast. Best of luck to you on finding him a
loving home. Remember to be selective as to whom you give him to [as if you
didn't already know that <g>]
