I moved to Bloomington with Flapjack. I think it’s been a really good bonding experience for us. She sleeps by my feet every night. I hung up some pictures of rabbits by her cage because it made me laugh. I really like it here. I need shelves if you live here and have extras. Or if you want to hang out, I have a lot of time and I’m not sure what to do with all of it. I end up just watching Flapjack a lot.
All the rabbits where Flapjack came from were Flemish Giants, but Flapjack is only seven pounds. I think she’s a runt. My dreams of living with a dog-sized rabbit just have to be put on hold for a minute, that’s all.
Flapjack got spayed last week and I was terrified but it went great. BUT she came back from the vet with FLEAS. I know she didn’t have them when we brought her because they’re always so quick to tell you your friend has fleas. So I’m pissed. So I called them today and said hey, you gave my bunny fleas, and they put me on the phone with a technician who I was hoping would say, “Oops, we’ll give you some free medication for that.” Instead, this person told me they don’t sell it but I could go to Petsmart and buy Advantix or something with imidacloprid as the active ingredient. It sounded too easy, so I Googled it and the first result said, “may not be suitable for use on rabbits”. Are you fucking kidding me? That’s the opposite of the outcome I hoped for. Pissed as shit. I called her regular vet and tomorrow I’m going to pay out the nose for medicine that won’t kill her. GREAT. I hate fleas.

HEY EVERYONE, STOP SCROLLING!!
see these? these are Flemish/New Zealand cross rabbits. They have wonderful , sweet temperaments and get to be really big! because of their size, they are bred and sold as meat rabbits at a few weeks old and are commonly used in labs where they are tortured and die horrible deaths.
A good friend of mine has opened her farm to slaughter rescues like these two and is hoping to pool enough resources in the next 2 weeks to bring home a new litter. She’s getting them fixed and loves on them daily until they find loving homes.
$25 is the price to pull them from slaughter.
$100-130 covers spay/neuter
