Hello. I have a little problem with my rabbit, Floppers. He's actually my boyfriend's rabbit. When he (the boyfriend) moved in with me, we left the rabbit at my mother's to take care of it until my boyfriend and I find a house (this was 3 months ago) because my apartment complex doesn't allow pets. Today my boyfriend and I stopped by my mother's and we found out the rabbit has been completely neglected. The bag of litter is completely full, meaning she didn't change the litter once. She was just now getting to the bottom of the bag of food, which should have lasted a month. Floppers is very skinny. You can feel all the bones in his spine and his hips. And he looks downright miserable. He hasn't been let out (he's used to having the run of Bill's apartment at least once a day). She has a rabbit of her own which looked fat and happy with clean bedding.... doesn't make one bit of sense to me. Needless to say we';re both furious and the rabbit is now in our apartment, we'll just have to deal with the consequences if we get caught before we move. Now for the point of all this: We got him some new food and cleaned his house and let him run around a little bit and he's looking a little more active and eating, but not nearly as much as he used to. Since he's eating, should I assume he's going to recover?? We are dirt broke right now (he just got laid offof not one but two jobs) but if we have to find a vet in this area we will. Any advice????
