    Need to rant

    theres a girl down the road form me who is getting new pet rabbits, now this may not sound much of a big deal but this girl should not have pets.
    shes had rabbits before but they died not long after she got them due to lack of proper care, she has had a hamster which was neglected and we now have, she also asked for a puppy for christmas her mother gave it to her and she abandoned it. the dog now lives happily with my bf's mother.
    i havent seen the rabbits yet but i already know that this girl and her family do not know the amout of care and hard work that is required for a rabbit, they are going to keep it outside in a hutch which during the winter here is not a good idea and they arent going to bring it inside and lastly there are lots of foxes around here at night which will easily get to the rabbits and kill them.
    unfortunatley nothing that i say or anyone else says will change this girls mind, she is getting the rabbits today.

    aaagh! is there a bunny rescue near you? maybe do some advance homework, preparing for the inevitable....

    one place to ask is the local humane society or SPCA...

    Good Idea, I'd look into it.

    Have you spoken to the parents? I'd also give them a warning (as sweetly as possible.... IF that is possible)

    I think at this point, the parents should already have the idea not to give their child a pet until she at least does put forth an effort to make sure she knows how to properly care for her animals.....

    I'd call the SPCA on them report that you and your family have had to rescue animals from them- too often than not and that they killed the parrot. Its a shame theres people like this out there but there is. Good luck those rabbits only hope is you.

    You know what kinda worries me though they just dont stop getting more animals even after letting you guys take them maybe you should stop taking animals from them (kinda like bad petsores) so they cant get more to hurt or negelect. I dunno I'd want to save them though- so I'm not blaming you.

    Re: Need to rant

    I was going to suggest telling them All About Bots...get some pics...tell them it is common (it isn'taht common, but still)...that would dissuade almost anyone from getting an outside rabbit.

    Yucky situation...I hope things manage to work out for the rabbit in the end...
