Hello, It’s me, Faline.
I just had to post today because of the awful things that happened to me. You may think that I am sounded a bit subdued, and that is because me and my lovely husbun have been poisoned. Yes, that’s right. The Hooman, who is supposed to love and protect us has done this to us.
It happens every year and SO FAR we have managed not to succumb to the poisoning, or die from the stress it causes but she does keep on trying. In two weeks we have to go back to the dreadful place of pain and fear and go through it all again. The Hooman says that all rabbits have to go through it, or should and that it is vaccinating against myxomatosis and VHD, which are very nasty diseases, but where is our proof?? Dogs, and cats and critters of the world should unite against the unspeakable evil known as…. the v-e-t.
First we saw the carrier came out. The Hooman put some tasty parsley inside but we are more intelligent than that and saw through the trick. My poor husbun got picked up first, he didn’t even put up a fight and try to get away like I did. For shame. He is a year older than me so this is his 4th time getting poisoned, I’m suprised he’s managed to survive this long to be honest.
Anyway, we went in the carrier in the car, With The Hoomans, the not-so-bad-but-smellier dog and the Ludo. Actually, the not so bad dog was pretty awfully bad in the car and cried and shuffled about. Yes, don’t worry about stressing us out or anything The Hooman, it’s not like us rabbits are prone to stress and nerves you know!
The smelly dog came because she was smelling worse than usual and had poorly ears. So she went in with the human-that-doesn’t-feed-us-ever to get them fixed and the upstart pup came with us. He went to get weighed now he is fully grown and what have you. He weighed an enourmous 12 kg, he is soo fat, I only weigh 1.7kg.
Then the torture began.
My Darling husbunny Molly went first, as much as I love him, I have to admit he is not so bright as I am and rather than cramming himself as far to the back as he could he actually came out of the carrier himself. The evil Vet hooman poked and prodded, listened to his heart and looked at his teeth. He was so brave! Then she injected the poison. 10% of the poison has to go in the skin layer and the easiest place for the vet is in the base of the ear, but it hurts so bad!! She even made my poor husbun bleed. She said he was in great condition, and I agree with her on that.
Then is was my turn. I put up a good fight and kicked a lot. I would have bitten the evil vet person but The Hooman put her hand over my head so I could not, I have never bitten The Hooman, although I have bitten other people that I’ve taken a disliking to. But she does feed me and give good nose rubs after all.
Oh the pain! The terror! Us rabbits are pre-disposed not to give away our pain, so I did not complain, but Molly tells me my breathing got heavy and my eyes bulged near out of my head. She looked at my hocks, which were getting a bit sore since my move to the outside. She said The Hooman is doing all the right things and they look fine and are not infected, which means I have to carry on suffering having this strange goop called vaseline put on them before I go out. The vet was very impressed with my fur and gave me some nice nose rubs, but that is just a trick to win our trust, I think, and she’s not getting it! I gave a good thump when I got back to the carrier.
After wards the hoomans had to stop and get some hooman food. The Hooman had put some greens in her bag so we got to snack, but Molly was too tense to eat. I’m never too anything to not eat. Well, food is just so delicious I can’t help myself.
Anyway, we’re still alive so the continuing apparent plan to poison us has failed again, though I do feel a bit out of sorts. If I disappear please phone the RSPCA.
It me, yous know, Ludo!
