Morning All :wave:

I've got a shameless request for vibes first.

With Biscuit's seperation anxiety clearly showing each time he's left in the house on his own for long periods, today is a bit horrible for me :(

He's at home, in his extended pen, with food, water, toys and space. But i have this horrible gut feeling my OH will get home at 5pm to find he hasn't used his litter tray all day again :( So she'll be blubbering on the phone to me, worried about him and we'll have to get the herbs out etc and the pineapple pieces i always have in the fridge for when i go away.

I actually feel sick im so worried about him, i hate doing this to him, he doesn't deserve to be worried that he's on his own :cry::cry::cry:

He'll be alright, won't he? :?: :cry:

Secondly i feel excited about tonight, picking Ginger up from Starlights after work, really nervous about taking her home and the very long car journey. Taking Ringo from her also to another forum member en-route, so i'm worried about him also, it's ~2hrs journey for him, but ~3.5 for Ginger and me.

I hope they both travel well, vibes for that from any one would be appreciated also.

I also miss my OH immensely, i'm hopeless/useless without her :(:love:

Sorry, long post, but i'm sat at work on my own, feeling very emotional right now!

DO NOT PANIC!

He will be getting used to time alone now, and will probably sleep all day.

And it's the last time, because he'll have Ginger to keep him company in future :love:

Agreed. He will now have a beautiful little playmate to cause mayhem with. :love:

Totally agree. Try not to panic today and enjoy the excitement of collecting Ginger.

Aww Gray.

Biccy will be fine. He was fine last time, wasn't he? And if he hasn't used the litter tray, it isn't the end of the world - your OH will be able to deal with it. And in no time he will back to his little ol' self :D

As for Ginger and Ringo..the trip is longish, but I am sure you will have made sure their carrier is stocked with hay. If you are worried about them dehydrating, bring a long a bag of wet veggies and pop them in with them. If the car is at a comfortable temperature, and any music not up too loud - I am sure they will just settle down and have no troubles. When you get to Ringo's new home, you will get the chance to check if Ginger is ok, and then it is only another 1.5 hours until you get home. :D We had to travel an hour each way with Charlee to pick up Noah, and I know it isn't 3.5 hours but they were fine. Suitably grumpy, but fine. :D

In no time you will be back home, with a gorgeous fluffy bunny, and back with your OH and Biscuit. Not long now!!

Graham the others are right. This will be the last time Biscuit will be on his own. Once he and Ginger are bonded they will keep each other happy. I used to have the same problem when Alfie was on his own, but now he has Faunus quite honestly I don't know if they would care if I was there or not... well as long as they have food of course!! :roll::lol::lol::lol:

Aww Biccy will be fine, he'll probably spend the day dreaming of his wifey bun :love:
Try not to worry too much (easy for me to say, I know) but just think, by tonight the whole family will be together & cooing over Ginger :love:

Vibes for everything going smoothly :wave:

Awwww sending lots of vibes for Biccy, although I'm sure he'll be fine.

And OMG how exciting about Ginger!! I bet you can't wait! Sending vibes for her and Ringo for their car journey!

Bet you can't wait for the day to pass and be back home with OH, Biccy and Ginger tonight!

Hope everything goes smoothly!

Yeah, he was okay, but that was the first time he was, he then wasn't next time we went out for ~8hrs, so i dont know if it was a one off. I just love him too much i think so worry myself stupid :?

Ginger/Ringo haven't had veggies from my understanding, i certainly know Ginger hasn't, so i can't do the vet veggies idea :( I've got a water bottle from where she's coming from to attach to the carrier, but dont know if the hay will be enough argh! I'm just a total stress head today.

I'm stopping at half way also at some other services, just to check on them both and give them a few pellets each (i had a little tub with about 20 in :) )

Talk about mixed emotions!

Thanks guys :)

I'm sure Biscuit will be fine, most rabbits tend to sleep in the afternoons anyway and it isn't their big eating time either,a nd like the others have said, once they're bonded this situation won't ever happen again as they will always have each other :love: My Joejoe is a different rabbit since he got his wifeybun Jess, in fact sometimes I feel quite the gooseberry around them :roll::lol:

Good luck with the journey home, stop worrying and get excited!!!!

How long will your OH be out for? Can she pop home for lunch? If she could, that might give you peace of mind.

I probably wouldn't attach the water bottle to the carrier as it might leak and make a sodding mess all over your car! Perhaps just offer them some water when you stop. Hay will be enough - remember a rabbits diet is betwen 80%-90% hay, they will be fine!!

No chance she will go home at lunch time, reasons i cant explain :roll: :(

Maybe i'll do that with the water bottles then, i'll see how things go.

I think i'll be alright, if i just stop thinking about them...

Don't worry too much about the trip back....If I remember rightly Ringo is coming to Portsmouth for Georgie? I'm in Gosport and have done the journey back/forth from Kris's with Blue, Blue & Ollie, Blue & Marnie as well as Bea.
They will be fine! It won't be hot so they won't over heat....and clacket lane is a good place to stop for refershments :wave:

They travel a lot better than we give them credit for. I drove two giants from durhan to the lakes then from there they went roughly another two hours in another car. They started sleeping by the second hour in my car. They'll fret at first but they do eventually calm down. Maybe its the same as driving babies and the motion soothes after a while.

Aw...I wish my OH worried about our bunnies as much as you worry about yours!

I'm sure the journey will go ok as there's no way you will be underprepared!
Good luck anyway though!!

Don't worry! Oscar travelled from Midlands-yorkshire-then yorkshire to Blackburn...heck of a long journey and was still bouncing when he was put in his temp enclosure!
If there was concerns about distance you wouldn't be adopting him. :D
Your OH will soon come around when your new addition arrives and all with be forgotton IF Biscuit has made a mess.....:D

My Oh would never travel all that way to rescue a bunneh, he doesn`t like my rabbits :cry:. I think I`m going to divorce my husband and marry you :D:thumb:

Don`t worry about your rabbits, everything will be fine.:wave:
Good luck for today.:D

I always travel with my bunnies. I've made a thread in the photos section if you want to have a look. They travel really well, and as there's two of them it'll give you a little taste of snuggles to come with your two. ;)

Bless you! Im guessing its almost pick up time for you to get Ginger (Honey) & Ringo!:love:
Im sure Biccie will be fine....they tough little things - more than we know....and its the last time for him too once sweet little Ginger is home with you & OH.
Thats so lovley you miss your OH so much....I wish I was missed!:(:roll:

The car journey is quite long...but chat to them & make sure they have lotsa hay & some wet veges or herbs & they will be fine. They will also be able to smell each other which may be of comfort to them. Bless they will have to say goodbye to each other forever!:(
Im sure that both buns will be fine in your wonderful care - its a happy and exciting day for you & OH...I do hope that the journey goes smoothly & quickly for you & the buns....:wave:
