Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by h.
Thank you so much for this kind article – it helped me feel not so alone. I’ve had a beloved bunny for five years. He’s the sweetest, gentlest soul, he’ll sit on your lap and be pet for hours and hours, will close his eyes and lean into your touch. He jumped around the yard and went for walks on a harness. But my workload became so demanding that I realized he was going for days and days on end not coming out of his cage. I’ve made the decision to rehome him, hopefully to an old couple that are kind to him or something. I’m driving him to the animal shelter on Saturday. I’ve been crying and crying, selfishly wishing I could keep him. Rehoming a pet is so, so hard. But this article definitely helped me see the bright side and validated my pain.
