As some of you may already have read in previous posts, my Bradley has been quite unwell lately with bouts of bloat and gas and I was extremely worried about him. His gas is now under control but unfortunately he will be on a hay and pellet only diet for the rest of his life, I tried to reintroduce veg slowly as the vet recommended but whenever he eats even the tiniest amount of veg he will blow up like a balloon hours later and be very uncomfortable and unable to poop properly. When just eating hay and pellets he is absolutely fine, infact he's a pooping machine!

After researching and longing for a rabbit for some time I adopted a rabbit on Sunday, he name was Margaret and she was a very nervous bun. The poor thing would hiss and scratch people and although she was an absolute moody mare (she would go mad if you so much as moved her food bowl a cm) I did become very attached to her and was going to work through her problems. Unfortunately I turned out to be allergic to her, she did shed a lot and I made the decision to give her back to her old owner. I'm unsure as to whether I am allergic to all rabbits or just her as her fur was very thick and she happened to be moulting a lot.

So now I am back to just having my 3 pigs but I have plans to completely renovate their piggy living quarters! Bradley and Barney who are currently living in a 2 tier corner cage from zooplus will soon be moving in to a 7ft x 4ft metal run (indoors so don't worry), this will be giving them a whopping 28 square footage of space and as the run is 2 feet high as well I may be adding another tier. Rodney who is currently in a 1m cage will then have the boys old cage to himself (big cage for my little man) as well as time in a run.

That will take over nearly my entire room but they will really have the space to popcorn and run to their hearts content. I'm going to focus on my piggies for now and maybe one day I will get my rabbit. :)

That is great news on the piggies shame the bun didn't work out for you. My friend did say that her GP told her that Guinea pigs are the most 'allergic' animal for people due to something about their fur make up? ?/ Could be a load of old pony but i suppose if it is true then your should be allergic to the piggies too and, if your not, then there is more chance you could not be allergic to a different bun? :(|) Just trying to be positive for you!
