    Default Rups

    I have done the hardest thing in ages, I am beyond devasted and yet it is a really the best thing.
    Since having rabbits, my home situation has changed beyond belief, we are no longer a twosome at home with unlimited time. We are now three and a half at home with the half being 4 days a week and 3 years old. We all work too but I am carer for Mum with stage 6 dementia and Dad at 86 failing health wise (9 pulmonary embolisms etc). A 3 year old and a house rabbit is not really compatible in our small home.
    We promised Rups a forever home, but that home was now not a good place for him. We contacted rescues after Susan’s death but a special 3 year old and Rups size (7.2kgs) rescues were reluctant to rehome to us.
    Rups was really unhappy on his own and his skin flared and he wasn’t eating properly. We did go back and forth to the vets but my boy was grieving and sad to be alone.
    So we looked at Rups going back to rescue, I contacted a few local but with him not being able to keep his tail area clean (he is too long) and his stresses (affecting his skin) and his eyes (which Susan kept clean) they did not want to take him.
    I have been a follower of Camp Nibble for a while – since buying from a certain Soap Kitchen and think they do wonderful work. I contacted them with the view to them taking Rups. He went on Monday and I have become one of those people who in the past I have judged so harshly for giving up pets.
    Rups has a new name on Camp Nibble if anyone wants to “see” him. He has become Rupaul and will be bonded with Marky Mark, Thumberlina, Godzilla and another tiny nethie. (I hope) and will have a home for life. We will sponsor him for the rest of his life.
    So thank you for the help, support, advice, laughs, friendship and time spent in your community. I am so very grateful to have found you particularly support with Dillon and his EC. I will pop on here from time to time but at the moment I am just plain sad.

    I know you did the kindest thing for Rups, despite it breaking your heart. Nobun can predict the future. You did the best by him & now he'll be forever with friends under the wonderful care of Hannah. I hope you don't become a stranger to the forum. Massive hugs xx

    I am sending you huge hugs. You are so incredibly courageous and you put Rups needs before your own. I could never be as brave as you have been and you have given Rups such a special and amazing life with you. I adored following his journey with you and you have allowed Rups to carry on that special journey with a new home. I have found you incredibly supportive and your posts and replies were always made with thought and care and sensitivity. I think you are an amazing kind and considerate person, who puts the needs of everyon else before their own. Our world is a far better place with people like you in it and I hope very much that you will stay active on the forum and follow our journeys and feel able to contribute when you can.
    Take care of yourself and huge hugs to you xxx

    Massive hugs to you. I can't even imagine how you are feeling but you have shown such kindness towards Rups. He is lucky to have been under your wonderful care.
    I enjoyed 'meeting' you virtually and hope when you feel ready that you'll still be around xx

    Love his new name - very sassy
