This is to get Mr Jingles to Jay and John at Ebony Eyes as they have very kindly offered to take him and give him a home .

Ebony Eyes is now in Arbroath , Scotland.

We may be able to do the first part of the journey if needed but this would restrict the transport to weekend as i work mon to fri.

If travelling this side of Pennines I could offer over-night stay and/or 30 miles or so in any direction.

oooo well I've been planning to visit alison for sometime now - I can always mix that with the first leg of the journey!!

We could also help, if you need it - maybe from the Scottish/English border up to Arbroath, or somewhere in Scotland, if Jay and John can meet us? Let me know :D

:shock:

so many offers of help ...

mr jingle says thank you very much :wave:

we will see if any other offers come in ..then get out the atlas and see if we can work out which route would be best ..

because of Mr Jingles past problems we would prefer to do the whole journey in one go if at all possible ... at least then if it starts another attack he will be settled in his new home and can be sorted from there .

If Phill or someone else could possibly do from killington lake to johnstonebridge again we could do from johnstonebridge straight to jay and johns as they only live 20 minutes from our house to theirs. That way it would be roughly 3 hours straight drive to get him there. It would save them having to meet somewhere and they could stay looking after the buns they have. :)

I don't mind doing Birch Services straight to Killington lake but would have to be a weekend or if Beth drops him at mine I will go straight to Killington from me:D

I can take to Peebles on second weeend in Jan woul be the Friday afternoon

would anyone be able to meet Minimak here ????

would be the shortest route i think ... we would like the journey to be as direct as possible as we are worried the travelling may upset him and bring on a funny turn again . :?

Im dropping Jamima off with Michelle at some point over this weekend, if she knows which route she will be travelling i can pick mr jingles up one day and drop jam off when she's on her way back? Are you going up the M74 Michelle? the only problem is that im at work until 4.30pm so the earliest i could pick up would be about 6pm??? Im here if you need me though, i can be a stop over or do a leg of the journey?

Its no problem us going to peebles as its only two hours away. I'll have to check what hubby is working. Is it this Friday? Or next Friday? If its this Friday It would have to be in the morning/very early afternoon as i am working a lateshift. I start at half 3 so it would prob have to be 1pm at the latest we could meet. Maybe 1.30pm at a push

either that or i could try and get a swap to an early shift which would mean the earliest i could meet would be 4ish

:wave: hi, thank you. Angie is getting her OH to sort out which parts of the journey we have people to cover and to see if there are any gaps to fill then she will try to arrange some dates. its all a bit confusing :? with us trying to arrange for it doing in as short and quick a journey as possible so as not to make him ill again.

Minimallow
05-01-2009, 09:28 PM
I dont mind doing the journey. We would do anything to help Jay and John and also many people helped us get sasha and the rescue gerbil so if it means less stress for the bunny we are more than happy to do it. :) As long as Jay gets the kettle on when we are near lol

kayj
05-01-2009, 10:15 PM
Beth can then have a ride to Killington Lake with me:D

Don't worry about him on my part of the journey as I will always find the nearest vet or just tell me what we have to do and any meds and I will do it:D

Phill
06-01-2009, 10:09 AM

dont feel bad jay ... we have to do whats best for mr jingles ..

im sure if Tracey could keep him she would but with two house buns already ..and one who picks on the other when other buns are around ..i dont think Tracey can do it :?

mopsmum

:cry: Oh I feel so bad now :( I understand if she wants him to stay - if she is that attached to him - Oh goodness, I feel so bad :(

no don't feel bad. she is like me and loves all animals but also understands that we have to let him go to make room for the next one that needs helping. if we kept all the bunnies we fell in love with then i would need a mansion :D
shes just writing you a letter jay to tell you all the things he likes and i've told her she can send you an email to see if hes settled in a few days time if thats ok.
sorry i didn't mean to make you feel bad :oops::(
