I have tried everything possible to keep the rabbits despite Luke's allergy. I thought they were fine in the sunroom where I can keep Luke away from them. But apparently there was just enough coming back with me into the house to continue a reaction.
I told myself I will just keep it the way it is unless the doctors say he needs surgery again, then I just can not do it. He had a CT scan and his sinuses are pretty full again. The ENT specialist (that we have been sent to by our regular ENT) said that he wants to watch it, but if he continues needing Antibiotics, he will need more surgery.
Well, it hasn't been a week since that call and last night he was put back on Antibiotics because of another Sinus Infection. Both, the ENT and his Ped. have urged me to not keep the rabbits.
A few days ago I bought a large chicken coop with run to keep them outside instead. I thought that might work. My poor husband has been dealing with it all, he is not a pet person, yet he let me spend all this money and built this coop with me.
Melody, the Giant is VERY active and I have been having problems with her digging like crazy and pooping and peeing everywhere if she doesnt like something.. and she always finds something she doesnt like.
Yesterday morning I watched her as she tried all she could to dig apart a shelf to get into the corner of the room.. she was going crazy. That was the moment when I realized I can not put her into the large coop outside. It is just not big enough, she will go ballistic.
I found a place that takes in Giants. She has a farm and keeps them free range. I am positive, that this is exactly what she needs.
BUT ... her and Harry are bonded. You should never take apart bonded rabbits. I will have to keep him with her... its either that or give him to someone else.
I am not 100% sure about the free range for him but I also know that taking them apart will be bad. So I have to do what I think is the smartest decision and I think it is to leave them together at the farm.
I can deal with Melody leaving.. I love her but I haven't had her long enough to form a tight bond yet. Harry on the other side ... It is breaking my heart.
I told the kids earlier and we all just sat there and sobbed. This is killing me. But I can not allow my child to go under the knife again because I am too attached to my pets. This is killing me
