I just sold an 8wk old bunny two days ago to a couple girls that answered my craig's list add. They were apparently roomates and probably in their early 20's. I had an uneasy feeling about them to begin with...mainly because they didn't seem to know how to care for it (what they could and couldn't feed it) and one didn't seem too comfortable even holding it (like afraid of getting scratched). I talked to them about diet and care and told them where they could stop to get food on their way home...offered to give them some of mine to get them started, and told them they could call me if they had any questions and off they went. I get a call from one of them the next day and she claims the bunny has diarrhea and just laying around in the cage like it doesn't feel well and what should they do for it? I gave her a few suggesions and asked a few questions and that was that. (it was perfectly healthy when I sold it to her). Then today she calls again and just says she wanted to let me know that the bunny died and that she took it to the vet and spent $400 trying to save it, and that the vet said it had a bacterial infection.....blah, blah, blah. She never asked for a refund or replacement or anything (I wouldn't give her one either anyway) but I just thought it was odd that she's been calling me and a little annoying. Personally I don't believe her and feel a bit guilty for even selling them the poor thing in the first place ( lesson learned for future "gut feeling" sales). I'm almost expecting another call from her in the near future trying to harrass me for money or some some kind of scam. I'm not really worried about anything....just annoyed but wondered if anyone else has run into this kind of crap from people over animal sales. It's new to me and such a pain in the butt.
