This is what really makes me mad. One of my friends, has this dwarf rabbit named smudge. He's the cutest little thing ever, and he adores me. I remember when she got him too. He was tiny, and she loved him alot. Well, he's older now, and he doesn't get the attention he got when he was a baby. She's also negleting him. The Reasons:

1. His nails are extremely LONG. I'm telling you, i'm afraid to hold him because i'm scared they with break or something. there that long.

2. She is useing Pine, and once i saw CEDAR litter! Grr!

3. He doesn't get fed alot. Everytime I'm there, his bowl is empty.

4. No water 24/7 When I was there I filled up his 2 water bottles, and he dranked that water so fast.

5. His cage is messy. His bedding is all over the floor of her room.

6. No toys. Bunnys love to play, and chew, and he only has 1 toy that hangs from the cage. :(

7. His cage is too small. Exspecially for a dwarf. Or she could at least let him out to run.

and I could just go on and on. It makes me sick to my stomach to see the poor guy like that. When I was there the other night, they had him out in the garage, because "My sister said he stinks" and I said, Clean it out then. Her family also tells her to just give it to me. and I even say, Britt, I'll take smudge for you so he can get proper care. Her replie was "no, I would be jealous"

uhhh, I still offer, and offer. I'm sorry this rant is long, but it makes me so mad. :mad:

If I got him, he would get better care than that crap.

Would she give him to someone she didn't know? Maybe a shelter? Keep pressuring her!

I don't know. They also had another (outside) rabbit. A dutch black and white male named Dexter. Who also wasn't getting proper care either. They ended up giving him to a friend of there dads.

Everytime i'm there I pressure her to give him to me. I don't care what my parents say...that bunny deserves better. She knows how much i love animals, and she knows i would give him better care. uhhhhh
