Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by m.
this article and these comments have helped me. i am having to rehome my 2 chinchillas due to severe allergies. i’ve had both of them for a couple of years now, but in the last month or so, my allergies have been unbearable and it is putting my health at risk. i also have a new job that is taking up a majority of my time so i just feel inadequate as an owner. i’ve never had to rehome an animal before, so this has been so difficult for me to even think about. i feel like i will think about them forever. the thought of never seeing them again breaks my heart but i feel that it is the best decision for all parties involved. i am crying as i’m writing this. i feel so much guilt and sadness.
