tomorrow.

only a couple people on here know, but i've been working on the adoption process to get Meadow a friend.  he's the boy i saw on Petfinder back in April.  the application process was very long, but we've been approved so we're going tomorrow for a meet and greet, and assuming there's not a vicious fight, he's coming home with us.  i know this is against conventional wisdom.  i know this, but i'm willing to take the risk, and i am committed to keeping them separate if necessary.  the longer it's taken, the more I have fallen in love with him...

edited:    SCROLL DOWN TO MY OTHER POST FOR PICS!!!!!!

this is my set-up.  they are going into another room right off of the living room, just b/c my living room is not that big.

 

please wish us luck tomorrow.  we're going to need some good vibes.

Great set up! Gave me a great idea for my imminent bonding adventure. Are those x-pens?

Lots of friendly bonding vibes to all of you!

Best of luck, Beka. Meadow is such a sweetie that she deserves a beau to make her happy. I hope he's the one.

BTW: no pix showing of him, just your set up. (Great one!)

yes, i used 2 36-inch high xpens. i called my sister, who just happens to work at the PetSmart PetsHotel that just opened in our city, and it turns out she gets a nice lil' 15% discount. i tried to make a NIC enclosure like the one i had around Mead's Marchioro cage, but it wasn't going to work. so four hours later and my fingers about ready to fall off, i had to take the dang thing down, it was not sturdy enough, and the way i was imagining it in my head was not going well. so i had to spend more money, but i think it'll work out better.

we leave at about 3:30 to take Michael to my parent's, then we need to drive 90 minutes to get to this woman's house.

The nice thing about the x-pens is that once you have them bonded you can combine them too - I have 4 of these for my rabbits and one for boarding and they are virtually indestructible.

Can't wait to meet Meadow's new boyfriend!

yes, i was really impressed by the quality of the xpen. it was pretty easy to get together since it's already connected. we just had to stand it up and bend it the way we needed it. if you're not creative, you don't have a lot of building time, or you just want something very very simple, the xpen is the way to go!

Ooooh, that's wonderful!!! All fingers, paws and toes are crossed over here!!! Hopefully they will kind of accept each other so you can take him home and start the bonding! I wish you just as much luck as we have had over here with Velvet and Dancer - bonded within one week and now inseperable!

I can't wait to hear updates! You know, it's actually a good thing that the screening took so long. I mean, you are a bunny person, but I wonder how many people are out there who are impulsive and just get a bunny because... they felt like it at that moment. That lady knows now that you are persistent and are truly committed. It's a good thing! Yes, very challenging, but hey, the waiting time is over now!

Oooooh, update us soon, please!

oh a new furbaby wonderful. they are going to a nice home too. with your set up and all thats real nice. I like that  if I had the room. yes those NIC cubes can be a challenge I redid mine 3 times now. and still having trouble. the waterpipe is in the way and keeps me from opening it on the side so I put the door on the top and have to be careful it doesn't hit Puff on the head when i take her out the door on teh side just wouldn't open cuz that pipe unless I moved the whole cage.     wow congrats on your new bun hurrah.   I want to see pics too. the ones you sent here I cannot see is a box with an x in it.   well next time.

i didn't find out until the end that she runs her rescue all by herself.  she does ferret, bird and rabbit rescue and rehoming.  so the long process was more due to her working by herself and us playing email/phone tag.  i also had to make sure we could make it work.  i don't take getting animals lightly at all.  once he's here, he is here forever.  so i had to make sure my husband was as commited as i am and that we were going to have money for the added expenses and vet care.  i still have not told Michael at all.  we've been spelling over his head... so it will be a bit of a surprise.  even now, we have two xpens set-up and he hasn't asked WHY once.

i tried to do the pics from my email.  they showed up for me, but not you guys i guess... here they are.

this is his Petfinder pic...

and some pics she sent... she said in the summer, the bunnies have an outdoor run.  i hope he will adjust okay to being an indoor only rabbit.

Beka - Are the pens 4' wide each? So no more cage for Meadow attached to the pen? You ARE going to cover that beautiful white carpet aren't you????
