No I am not that happy, but I decided it was the right thing to do. I will always remember her and we are thinking about getting another one from a petstore since we already have everything we need. Another animal...saved...happy...another cycle yet to go around in.
Thanks for all of the replies in my previous post. I just wanted to say sorry, i guess. To whom was ever offended by my previous post. I hope we can all be friends here and that there is no "Trash Talk". This is supposed to be a happy, pet community. Not an "I'm better than you! No you are not!" Community. Am I right? And I DO NOT wish to single anyone out. So sincerly, I am sorry. Can't we all just get along? Ok, ok, I know we can't, but can we at least act like it?
GOOD LUCK OUT THERE, LITTLE GIDGET!! WE'RE ALL SURE YOU WILL BE FINE!
I am also glad to hear that you released little Gidgit today. I'm know its very hard to do and seems like the wrong thing to do, because its easy to get attached to little ones very quickly and want to shelter them from all harm. It was a very unselfish thing for you to do, because the window for the little guy learning the basics of survival is short, and really he wouldn't have made a great pet, or domesticate as well as a pet rabbit would, but if you hadn't released him so soon, he wouldn't have made a great wild rabbit either, and then he'd really be in a pickle. Instead of looking at pet stores for a new rabbit right away, try petfinder.com or local rescues and shelters to see if you can find a new rabbit this way. Then you would still be rescueing a rabbit, and not using consumer dollars supporting small animal breeding. You hear more about puppy mills, but there is awful stories out there about places that breed rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, etc.
