In a bit of a predicament here....
A few days ago during his floortime, Smudge decided my bed would make a wonderful litterbox, and peed all over it. Im not mad at him or anything, cuz I know he didnt mean any harm... I just wish it could have been before 10:00 pm.
My moms regretted getting rabbits for a really long time, and now she seriously wants me too get rid of him... I could NEVER do that, and never will- even the thought makes me cry.
Shes sick of the fuss Ive been constantly making for the last 3 years about how much I want to keep Smudge inside, about how he "destroys everything" (he honsetly doesnt do that much), about how many stains are on my carpeting from him...
I just dont know what to do right now. I guess hes not allowed in my room anymore, but Ill still bring him up there... its the only place hes allowed to run around.
I feel so terrible about everything... I love him to death and want to give him the best life I possibley can, and its so hard when I cant.
The fact that Im constantly threatened that I have to get rid of him sure isnt making me feel any better...
Ive been thinking about getting him fixed so he'll use his litterbox better, but Id be really scared too. Hes over 5 now, and Im not even sure it would make much of a difference anyway. Another thing with that that Im worried about is the money... I have more than enough to get him fixed, but Im worried that if I spend $300 on that, I wont have enough to cover a real emergency... I dont get help financially for any of that kind of stuff, and if I couldnt afford treating him in an emergency Id have to put him down.
Im sorry for my ranting, but I just feel like Im in such a hopeless spot here. I definatly dont want him to be stuck in a cage 24/7, but I dont want ot put any more stress on my mom... She already gets enough crap from my dad, and she doesnt need anything else from me.
I dunno... does anyone have any advice on what I should do? Is there some way I could at least kep him off my bed? Ive had such a nasty week, I really just need some help here.
