|hi, I have a pet rabbit-- her name is jubilee. she's less than a year old, probably about eight months now and is not fixed (yet). I have been struggling to find a vet for her in my area that would be less than $200+, but recently moved out-of-state where it is cheaper. I found a great exotics vet in town but they could not give me a quote without viewing her, so the price remains on that once I bring her in.|
here's the dilemma. jubilee is the sweetest rabbit in the world. my boyfriend and I got her together when we were just starting out, out of a shoebox hours away from home. she was the only white one in the litter. raising her, we would take her everywhere, usually on our shoulders or in the hood of our jackets... she loved to nestle in my neck and hair. she used to fit in the glove box of my boyfriend's car and would roll around and nap in there, it was precious. as she got older she has become more difficult to handle... she has claws! and getting scratched up (even unintentionally) is a common occurance now. she's too big to sit on my shoulders (she now prefers my chest) and I am planning on purchasing a bigger cage for her comfort. in our old home my boyfriend built her a cage outside that we used to let her run around in during the day... but things got complicated when she started digging holes... now that we've moved, we take her outside to run around in the front yard, but I can tell she is frustrated by not being out all the time.
her behavior as she's matured has changed dramatically. she is still a sweet bunny; she loves affection and will cuddle with you for a long time. we raised her that way, with our dog too, so she acts in many ways like a little dog. but her hormones are so dramatic, she marks everything now. as I've slowly been recognizing these behaviors I find myself almost frightened by them. she loves us, but it seems more and more she wants nothing to do with me because she is too preoccupied by her instincts. she rubs her chin on everything. I mean EVERYTHING. her food. her cage. her water. our feet. my hands. she sprays, constantly. I used to let her roam around the house because she was good for awhile and would not mark or chew, but now I cannot put her our for a minute without her marking. I can tell she is not as happy as she could be, because I can't let her out as much, and it honestly kills me. I dream of giving her the ultimate bunny life, where she can run around and be comfortable.
any rabbit owners? please help
