Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by Julia.
My parents gave away my rabbits because they bite everything and eat their plants in the garden. Their hair gets everywhere so we moved them to the shed but they complained that they took up too much space. I had them for 4/5 years and got really attached but a month ago they gave them away to an animal shelter. I have to admit that I haven’t been taking good care of them recently because I had exams and all but I just feel so guilty and keep on and off crying. I hate to see my family move on like nothing even happened. Now they want to get a dog as a replacement. I don’t know how to deal with it. I’ll still love the dog but I miss my rabbits. It doesn’t help that one had a huge lump or tumour or something on their chin and my parents didn’t want to get it checked out and they just sent them off to the animal shelter hoping they’d pay for the vet when they have tons of sick animals already. I just want some sort of update and want to get in touch with the owners. I can’t stop checking the animal shelters website or instagram to see if my rabbits are on it.
