    Am I the only one who is concerned with this statement? Or is it the healthcare provider in me over reacting?

    Accidents happen. He'll probably be fine. I dropped a baby hamster once. He was still pink and hairless but he lived through it unscathed. That being said, if something does happen, don't be too hard on yourself. It's very sad when something like that happens but I'm sure you won't let it happen again. We learn from these things, Hun. What you've just learned is that those cute little things are squirmy!! Put something soft on the floor when you hold them if you are too worried about it. Sometimes they will fall, and there is just not much you can do about it except soften their landing. [​IMG]

    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    If the people on your rabbit website are making you feel bad about an accident, you should remove yourself from their poor company.

    Sheesh! Sometimes I hate people!

    Don't let them drag you down. Accidents happen.

    As bad as we feel about them accidents happen. I was putting eggs into lockdown one time and did the drop...juggle..catch with an egg. Glad I caught it but I could have just as easily dropped it certainly with no intent of hurting the chick.
    It is easy for others to judge when they are not in the situation themselves.
    If anything does happen to the bunny please do not be too hard on yourself. [​IMG]
