I just found my forever home!
Update 9/30/06 From Iggy
Hi everyone! I wanted to let you know that I am feeling much better. I went to the vet again, but it wasn't so bad - they gave me anesthesia so I slept through the whole thing. But the train ride there was fun. Anyhow, they trimmed my back left molar, which had been pushing my tongue to the right side and causing a huge ulcer. The trimming and antibiotics are helping my little mouth heal, and I am still getting pain killers. Yippee!
Now that I am feeling better, I have more energy to run around and explore. I love "working" on the computer and jumping onto the desk and bookshelves. And I just discovered that there are other bunnies here - all I need to do is just hop over the little gate to visit with them. For some reason, my foster mom doesn't like it when I do all of these fun things. She hurries to pick me up and move me back to the living room floor, but I always get a kiss on the head, so I guess I am not being too naughty. And besides, my real favorite thing to do is sit on the couch next to my foster mom and get petted and petted - I could do that for hours.
I went to the vet last night - not fun! They looked in my mouth and said that my bottom lip is saggy and my bottom front tooth is cracked, but that it doesn't look sharp. They also said that one back molar is unaligned and that I had a lot of saliva on the other side of my mouth, so they couldn't get a good look at the teeth there. They drew some blood, and if the results say that I am strong and healthy enough, they will anesthetize me to get a good look at the back teeth. Thankfully, they gave me a big thick towel to dig in - it helps get out some of my "vet frustration."
When we got home, my foster mom gave me some pain medication. At first it tasted sweet and delicious, but that didn't last long. But when my foster mom gave me my dinner - mushy pellets and chopped up greens - for the first time in a long while, I was really excited to eat. My foster mom said that I "really strapped on the feedbag" - whatever that means.
I will keep you updated on my progress.
Hi! My name is Iggy Pop. My foster mom named me after the rock star because right now I am a little on the skinny side, but I definitely have a lust for life. I am truly a bunny's bunny - I like to hop around and explore, but then head back to the sofa for pets and snuggles. Wouldn't you like to meet a fun and loving bunny like me?
Due to neglect, I am underweight and had to have my rear and tail shaved because of urine scald. My teeth also need some dental work, which is being done. But I still think I am pretty cute. How can you resist my white button nose and white socks? My fur is a little brittle in spots, but it is easy to see that it will be super soft and lush once I get some good food and TLC.
