    My mom is making me sell Charlie (The best bunny ever!!!). I made a craigslist ad, but no one had responded. So, I decided to come up with a way to keep him. I was gonna move him up to my room, and attach the run to his cage. Then I check my e-mail, and someone responded! [​IMG] Now they might buy him, and I still gotta sell my female! [​IMG] He was SO sweet!

    I'll miss you, Charlie Waffles!!! [​IMG]

    Quote:She says they are too big a mess, and we have too many pets (She's also making me sell my female, and my turtle). [​IMG] The lady responded again, and said she wanted a Holland Lop instead... I know that should be happy for me, but I really don't wanna give him to a shelter.

    So does your mom clean Charlie and the others or do you? Why is it such a mess? My rabbits aren't messy. All I do is clean out the poop tray. Other than that, they eat and drink with no problems and no mess.

    Is there a way that you can make it "less messy", so your mom would be ok with that and you not have to sell Charlie and the female?

    How is a turtle messy? [​IMG]

    How many other pets do you have?

    Quote:I clean it, but it's always messy because they push the bedding out of their litter boxes onto the ground.

    I could try. I'm not sure if she'll change her mind, though. [​IMG]

    The turtle has to be cleaned every three days, and it takes like 3 hours to clean, so she hates helping me.

    Let's see: 1 turtle, 2 bunnies, 2 dogs, 3 cats, 2 fish, and 2 ducks. [​IMG] We've had more before.

    My neigbors have their bunny cages inside a kiddie pool. It is very easy to clean up the spills. Run it past her, the kiddie pools are cheap. I hope you can save your animals. I feel awful that she is making you sell them.[​IMG]

    Good luck.

    Why not build an outside hutch. Mine were just fine outside.

    why is your turtle taking 3 hrs every 3 days to clean?! are you not running a filtered tank? if indeed it is difficult perhaps you should consider re homing the ones you are less attached to and finding a better way ( NOT providing better care for - not accusing you of that- just saying there may be a better but more expensive way to handle the care) to care for the one you don't want to lose. I know we used to get bird cage wraps ( like big cloth elasticy things) to put around the bottom of my hamster cages so they wouldnt kick out bedding. you could also try pelleted bedding.

    My bunnies are outside on concrete. We hose it off every morning. No biggie.
