My mom said ok to the bunny and my dad said ok so I e-mailed the rescue person and then 4 days of e-mailing the rescue person and asking questions about my bunny and setting up a date for picking up the rabbit. My dad doesn't want to call the guy because he needs thinking time. What the heck? My dad said yeah and all the sudden he changes his mind!
Babu, Parents often change their minds. I am a parent to five. Your dad is probably not being mean he is just worried i suppose that he is making the right decision, by letting you have one.(the responsibility and all that)Try not to sulk or strop and reason with him and he will think you are all grown up and responsible and let you have one . I BET!!
Yikes...as a parent, I can say Dad is having second thoughts about the bunny..probably thinks he'll end up taking care of it himself or listening to your mom gripe because you aren't taking care of it and now she has to...Just what he might be thinking.. Maybe the smell, cause yes they do smell even if they're kept clean...no they STINK if you don't!!! I hope you're a responsible kid and then I would just not say anything about it and let him think it over. The more you bug him, the more he'll say no to shut you up....IF he does say no, accept it without arguing or pouting and then later down the line, he may change his mind, or when something important does come up, he'll remember that you accepted his answer and see that you have grwon up enough to handle responsibility. It's hard being a kid...
i hate it when he says " When I was little I kept my rabbit outside and we raised her for food and blah blah blah blah.
I think he is just mad because here is the U.S. we perfer to raise rabbits and inside and litterbox train them he doesnt even want to talk to me . I have to repeat the question 4 times for him to answer and he cant even look me in the eye. He said I can handle the communication . I did all of my research and now I just feel like I did everything for nothing.
Now he is watching a movie and he calls it thinking time..
Schoolgal he has a night job so he not home most of the day so he doesnt even need to worry about the litterbox and whatnot. Mom is fine with everything. Man parents are complicated.
