This isn't a day for the pets

The pet household has some challenges today :(

Ninja had to go to the vet because of her overgrown teeth. To my dismay, there is also inflammation of the gums...so she still isn't eating properly now. The vet isn't sure what more she can do for Ninja, and advises me to pound her food. I spent the new few hours pulverizing pine nuts, sunflower seeds, barley flakes, etc

Then, I cleaned out the rabbits' cage, and Whitty bit me! Broke my skin and there was blood. She has never been good about cage cleaning. Unlike Blackie who would just lie there quietly, Whitty gets anxious and would try to stop me from throwing away her hay, and while I was clearing out the hay, she would be eating as quickly as she could. Silly girl! I always give you more after that! Have you ever run short?

Anyway so she kept lunging at me, chasing my hand, until finally, the big BITE. That hurt! We glared at each other for a few seconds, I put on a glove, and the angry rabbit ran off to sulk beside Blackie, hiding her face in his fur, until the whole thing was over. She became happier only when I filled the hay balls and returned her the food bowls and toys.

All in all, it isn't a day for the pet owner and I am exhausted now. Good night folks.

I highly recommend mixing Critical Care with some pumpkin. It is very easy for rabbits with dental problems to eat this mix. Hope this helps! :)

Did the vet trim Ninja's teeth? Our bun Nico has to go in periodically to get his teeth filed down...
