an Animal Communicator.
Everyone has their own beliefs, whether something like this is a necessary or not or if there are people out there that can really communicate with animals. I too before tonight was very skeptical, but after this Vanellope is more calmer and more peaceful.
Please read the following below:
Vanellope had a litter on Nov 5, 2013. She has 4 beautiful healthy
babies. When the kits hit 6 weeks old that is the time we wean them from their
mother and we did. When we weaned her kits we let Vanellope back out of the cage to go back to being the house bun.
Later that night Vanellope seem to be out of sorts and sad.
That night I caught Vanellope trying to jump up 2 cages to get to her kits. She wanted to be with them. I didn’t want Vanellope getting hurt, so I place her back in a cage and took her daughter “Fluttershy” back with her. We planned on keeping her daughter and in hopes they both could be house buns together.
Vanellope and Fluttershy were together up till Dec 25th 2013. On the
25th Vanellope started humping her and yes it probably just was her showing dominance, but I didn’t want to take any chances of her daughter getting hurt, safety 1st.
On Dec 27th Vanellope started showing odd behaviors. She was digging, pulling fur (nesting behaviors), she would even come in our bed and place her fur she pulled around us. It was almost like she was treating us like her kits. We thought it was a phase and she would come out of it. Unfortunately she didn’t.
I did reach out to other breeders and places to figure out why she was
acting like this. Some said she likes being a mom and wants to be one (which was
true, will explain more later) or rebreed her, but as I have said before I always
have all my girls have a 6-7 month Vacation before thinking of another
breeding. Also we wanted her back to being our house bun; I guess you could call
us selfish; we also talked about getting her spayed after this litter. We didn’t
want her to have a lot of litters only one.
She continued to have behavior for 3 weeks and stopped 3 days before
her spay appt. that was on Jan 17, 2014. After her spay she did have trouble
waking up from the surgery and not eating which we were told that was normal
with some buns after a spay. She did have to spend the night. The next morning
when we called the Vet, they thought she might have to stay another night
because she wasn’t eating. Vanellope is a very interesting bunny and I know her
very well. I told them that I rather bring her home and try to get her to eat
here, I think she isn’t eating because she is in a place she is not okay being.
She is scared. After they refused to release her, we jump in the car and drove 1hr and 30mins to see if we could get her to eat. As soon as we got there she ate and was able to come home.
Days after her spay at home she was okay, we did have to gate her in
the kitchen so she would stay calm and not have a lot of activity. After the 10
days we were able to let her start jumping on and off the bed, couch, let her go
back to what she wanted to do. A few days later she went back to digging, chewing, everything but pulling fur. Then after that she started to get destructive, wrecking stuff animals, chewing the couch, sheets
and then last she started nipping and biting.
When we looked at Vanellope we could sense she was on edge, irritated, sad or something was bothering her, I just knew something wasn’t right and my
This was and is not our Vanellope. When I asked people in groups I was told it is normal behavior she is a rabbit they dig. I told people no, this isn’t normal. I was even cussed at and spoken horribly in a group by a breeder no less. Our Vet couldn’t help us really; she thought it could be her hormones still acting up. I search endlessly online and everywhere. Online everything I found said bun gets better after a spay, they don’t get aggressive or the behavior doesn’t get worse.
Well today we have 3 choices left to try:
1- Second opinion at a different vet just to make sure she wasn’t in pain or something underlying.
2- Flower Essences – to help her be at ease
3- Animal Communicator - which I again I was very skeptical.
Well we took her to the Vet this morning. Vanellope was looked over not in any pain and like normal I got she is a rabbit she will dig. She is coming into her own, It is normal and she could of picked this up. Yes I do know digging can be normal for a rabbit. I have one that does. However yeah digging is normal to me when they do it once in a while or daily and will do it for a few mins and then stop and that is that. However Vanellope doing it nonstop all the time, No it isn’t. I know my rabbit, I have hand raised her from 2 days old. Also okay if it was normal then
why is she acting like she is on edge, etc.
I was so upset and sick of hearing what they were saying I walked out of the vet. My husband stayed and finished talking to her. The Vet than said it isn’t psychical it is psychological. She gave him a card with the name of a Vet Behaviorist, but was told she is expensive.
Well after we got home and myself a wreck, I finally decided to say the heck with it and contact the Animal Communicator. I didn’t care what anyone thought or even thinks at this point.
Well at 6:30pm tonight the woman contacted us and it was done over the phone (I have actually heard of this woman before and she works with a local shelter).
I will say it was an amazing experience! She was right on about Vanellope. She told us Vanellope didn’t understand why her babies were taken away from her and had to leave. That she loved being a mother.
She also said that Vanellope didn’t understand / very confused why she
was at the vet. Why weren’t there for her.
The woman told us while we were talking to her that we need to tell Vanellope why we took her babies away and why they left. Also why we took her to the vet and had her spayed. The woman said after we explained these things to her that Vanellope understood after that. She also said Vanellope would love a friend (even though we tried bonding her back with her daughter) she didn’t want that she wanted a buddy not a baby now.
Also Vanellope was not doing this behavior because she was mad at us; she was just upset, confused and hurt. The woman also said that when Vanellope if she does get nippy to tell her: “Keep mouth closed” and explain to her why which, would be because “we want our bodies smooth”. Something she would understand.
She also said Vanellope was a very intelligent rabbit. No matter how many toys we give her, play with her she just wants a buddy and she said when she reached out to her that a nice Play house type to run around in and play in would be ideal.
After the phone call was over we both thanked the woman. I feel that she truly understood what I have been trying to tell others that were not getting it. She truly knew what Vanellope was feeling and she was right on about everything.
After reading this you can sit there and thing I’m stupid to contacting this woman or laugh. Do what you need to do, but I knew something was wrong with Vanellope and everything she said made PERFECT sense, when I sit here andthink back about everything Vanellope has gone through. She also said that it is good to talk to our other rabbits when we are going to do something or any animal for that matter. They do understand us believe it or not.
Vanellope after the communication took place is now acting calmer and totally different as if she is at peace. Things are now looking hopeful and the woman will be touching base with is in 3 weeks.
I’m only sharing this because it was such an amazing experience; we love our rabbit unconditionally and would do anything in our power to help them. Please if you don’t like what I have shared, please keep your negative comments to yourself. This is something my husband and I both decided to do and I would do it all over again
in a heartbeat!
