I'm so sorry for your loss

I lost my cat of 15 years this spring and she was my best friend and slept with me every night. I was wreck for quite a while and I was sure that I wouldn't get another cat for quite a while. But only 2 months later I got a call from my local SPCA that there was a mom cat and her 5 babies dumped outside overnight and they needed somewhere to stay until the babies were big enough to be adopted (I'm a regular foster parent for them). I wasn't quite ready, but they needed somewhere to stay so I said yes. In the end it really helped me heal and realise that I could add another animal into my heart, without "replacing" my cat. After 8 weeks, the kittens went back to the shelter to be adopted and I ended up keeping the mom It's been 3 months since I officially adopted her and 5 months since she came to stay with me and I don't regret my decision. I still think about my old cat everyday and miss her, but I don't expect the new one to be her.

I think you will know in your heart when you are ready to open up your home to another bun And try not to let your friends/family get you down with their comments, they mean well they just don't understand. I went through the same thing and I just politely told them that that's not how I feel and I would appreciate if they didn't bring that up again.

I do want a new rabbit, but I don't at the same time, I think I just really want Simba back, and I'm trying to bring him back by getting a new rabbit. We did find a rabbit that everyone in the house agrees on (AKA, my sisters, mom, and dad, and it's good around children, since my 2 year old nephew's living with us, his name is Blueberry, he's a lop eared mix, all white and blue eyes.) But we can't get him, because since I live with my parents, my mom had agreed with one rabbit, and he's bonded with another rabbit, and I couldn't take him away from Puffin. (That's the other's rabbit's name.) While we were planning on getting Simba fixed and then getting him a girlfriend, or buddy, once my dog's puppies were sold, she doesn't want two rabbits in the house now.

That's a great idea!  It also shows you are much more mature then that so-called friend. If you are a minor,  make sure you get your parents blessing about volunteering as they probably have to sign something. I hope you're successful if you do end up applying.

They can always use the help and who knows, you might connect with a bunny there.

Oh, in case anyone cares to see, I found the very last picture I got of him, after this picture he began grooming that puppy (On a deflated exercise ball my nephew decided belonged on the floor, and apparently comfortable enough for a bunny and puppy to lay on.) He was very good with them, even though it was the first time he met them, he licked each one of their foreheads for at least a minute (There's 6 pups in all.) This was on October 9th, so like 2 weeks ago.

Yeah, my only problem would be that I'd have to ride the bus, and I'm terrified of doing so, I have horrible social anxiety along with Aspergers syndrome, so it'd be difficult for me to ride alone, if I had a car, I would drive, but sadly, I do not have my own car, and if I did, I'm as horrible at directions as my mom is.  She barely can drive to work, and she's been working at the same place over 3 years now, forget it if the road's closed, she'd be calling off work! Anyway, I do hope I will be able to overcome my fear of buses, if I do, then I will for sure try and see if I can volunteer, they have "Bunny Buddies" as well as "Cat Cuddlers" and "Dog Walkers." I love all types of animals, so it may be good for me to do some volunteering. My only problem with volunteering, other than the way to get there is that I have HORRIBLE allergies, I was allergic to Simba, and I had to get used to him, before I stopped being really itchy (Although, I think the hay had a big factor in this, he had a little phase where he had to roll in the hay before sitting on me.) So I'd have to take medication, and that sometimes makes me drowsy, and not so alert. Hmm, I'm not sure, if I wasn't such a nervous and shy person, it'd be great, but yeah... I kinda went off on a tangent, oops, sorry. D:

That's a wonderful picture of Simba! =]

And if you we're to get another bun don't feel like you're replacing him. My bf had the same feeling when we got Skipper a week after Gilligan died. I told him it wasn't replacement. It was just filling a hole that was empty. But get a new bun when you feel ready!

Don't worry you're not the only one terrible with directions. After two years living in the same house I got my boyfriend lost for two hours after he tried dropping me of after a date. Your allergies, what did the give you that made you drowsy? Have you tried asking your dr. for a generic brand of something? I only bring it up because the new bath of hay we got caused me to break out in hives and the dr. gave me a generic rx for Claritin to help with the allergy. It's ten times cheaper and it's not nearly as drowsy inducing as other things.

Thanks He was such a sweetheart towards the puppies. And I think it was benadryl, (I probably spelled it wrong.) I always took it since I was little, but then we just started to buy pills that dissolve in your mouth (That was actually for adults) at walmart,(I hate taking pills, so it worked good enough for me.) which only seem to work for pollen allergies, not fur allergies, which I do have fur allergies towards any animal that sheds. It sucks, because I love animals, and I'm allergic to half of them.

What a precious picture! And what a precious bun!

I actually have allergies to lots of animals. Benadryl not only makes me sleepy but really cranky too, so I sympathize. Can you use something like Zyrtec or Clairitin?

I do hope you'll be able to volunteer, it sounds like a wonderful opportunity for you.

OMG. That picture of Simba may be the cutest thing I've ever seen! And he was bigger than the pup which makes the photo even better!

I also really hope you get a chance to volunteer! I think it will give you some comfort to be around other animals again since animals have such a great sense for us being upset and sad. Just think -- if you conquer your fear of riding the bus (I had the same fear until I did it and figured out it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!) then Simba will once again be helping you overcome something. Simba would want you to be happy and experience new things and conquer anything else you have to overcome in life. I know you can do it if you try!! The bus drivers in Pittsburgh are very nice and helpful also! If you tell them where you need to go, they'll let you know when it's about time for you to get off. Which is what I did so I wouldn't miss my stop since I didn't know Pittsburgh very well and didn't really understand how buses worked.

I second Tanlover. Don't let it get you down!

You sound my like my bf! He's allergic to every pet he's had except for Skipper. =p And I would definitely see if you can get your dr. to prescribe you Claritin or something like it. Benadryl is sort of meant to be a quick fix thing. For instance, if you get a bug bite that needs swelling reduced. If you're wanting to control your allergies, getting something like Claritin (which is a time release capsule) will you give all day relief while Benadryl will give you a few hours burst of anti-histamine and leave you drowsy. I hope everything works out for you!

I have to visit the doctor soon for a physical so I can get my drivers permit, so I'll ask about him prescribing me something new for my allergies. And the only pets I wasn't allergic to was my sisters lizard, and my two dogs, they hardly shed their fur, because they're shih tzus. I honestly think I was allergic to Simba, (along with his hay.) but yet I still let him rub against my face. (He was half cat, I swear.)
