As I reported in the Q&A section, Jessica, one of therapy girls gave birth last weekend. All 5 babies died by Weds. night. I brought Jessica back to work today. I let her loose in the classroom today w/ her "sister" bun, Oreo Cookie.
Ms. Cookie completely attacked Jessica. I'm such an idiot!!!! She did so well w/ the cats at home that I wasn't thinking about "bunny sense". Jessica got 2 huge punctures on her inner thigh, 2 giant nail marks on her torso, and several smaller puncture marks around her neck. She had to be anesthetized to receive stiches on the thigh punctures! They shaved her at the hospital and I was just in tears. She got pummelled by Oreo and it was basically my fault.
So after dealing w/ more beauracratic crap w/ getting her care financially approved, my husband and I decided to pay the bill and keep her as our house bunny w/ our 4 cats. The vet felt that it could take months for her to get back together w/ Oreo and even then they should continue to be housed separately. After having just bought a giant cage for the 2 girls, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.
B/t the babies and the attack, Jessica and I have been through a real whirlwind! Please send all bunny love to Jessica right now. We still have to stave off infections. I'm planning on eventually using her in outpatient individual therapy sessions once she's healed, emotionally and physically.
