Bunday News March 18, 2012
Another busy weekend - in the rain. We played "Hot Bunny" with a couple of local shelters - sending one rabbit out to them, bringing one back from them. It is often done to help well known and visited shelters to have rabbits that are very adoptable while we take the cranky and sick and turn them into more likable ones. It's a thankless job (well actually many people DO thank us). So most of my Saturday was in the car driving rabbits around Northern California. Also had to pack and ship out a lot of things that were bought off of Etsy/eBay. 100% of the profits of course go to the rabbits.
We had Dr. Debra Sheester (I never get her last name right) come over on Sunday to bond a rabbit she got from us previously. We wound up with Chi-anna going home with her. Although Lops tend to move quicker, Chi-anna has a chronic ear issue that the Dr. can take care of. During the bonding, we got some free Vet check-ups for a few of our sicker patients.
Right now, Olaf isn't doing so well. He's still congested and we just started him on a new medication - which he didn't like - so much so that I actually thought he was having a bad reaction to the medication. But he's his usual self now although I'm keeping an eye on him just in case.
I've just finished refurbishing the last condo in the outer room. Now if I only knew how to pour concrete, I could fix the floor too. That just leaves the inner room although I have fixed a couple here already (the ones that were in dire need of it). All in all, things are going well for the buns.
As for myself, I realized that I've worked 27 of the last 30 days. I've decided that I need more time off as I'm starting to make more and more mistakes. You just want to help them all the time but when you reach a certain point, you just need a break.
Oh, and there were three different volunteers this weekend who thought I was a vet. I didn't realize it until then that I do know a lot about bunnies and their health and short of any form of operation, I can do just about anything for them. It's weird when the vet asks ME as to what we should get for the rabbit.
