The family was really great, it sounds like they have a plan for when they need to be separated, and they have kids who just adored Lucien and Mittens right from the start. I think they will do well with their new family. Congratulations Lucien and Mittens!
In a surprise twist, after Lucien and Mittens went off to their home, I decided to stay in the front and see if anyone might stop by if I put up a few ads online. Namu-Manu's new family messaged me and said they'd be back for another bunny. They came back with more kids and picked out two more bunnies. Medusa for themselves, and Nyxx for a friend of their children who's birthday it was (and mom gave permission). Congratulations Namu-Manu, Medusa, and Nyxx!
Tomorrow is breeding day, so I moved the remaining M and N litter babies to a cage together. Nefertiti, Nardol, Nuri, Maleficent, and Moira are getting along well. Neelix is still with his momma for the time being.
I'm really fighting with myself about Neelix. He's a sweet bunny, so tiny, and #5 just adores him. We don't need another buck, much less a small one. I don't have a spare cage available to keep him, and I'm sure at some point #5 will lose interest in him. I have someone who is/was interested in adopting Neelix, but I have been delaying calling her back. Why am I hesitating? I mean, we can't keep every bunny we breed that is cute or small or that we fall in love with. We just don't have the cages for that many, and they do eat quite a bit of food, which adds up in costs. But for some reason I'm really balking on selling Neelix. Someone talk some sense into me...
I digress. Breeding day is tomorrow. Gretchen will be paired to George for a meat litter, and Fern will be paired with Fabio for a colorful pet litter. Penelope and Charlotte are due in 11 days or so. They should have the first litters born on the new homestead.
Today marks Tony's last day of work for a while. He's taken all of this next week off to get us all packed and moved (since I've had no luck motivating kids to help with packing). The sooner we get packed, the sooner we get moved. It's crunch time now. The plan is to be completely packed up and moved to the new house by Thursday... We shall see how that goes. I think Tony forgets how much work it is to defuse arguments with a house full of autism. Keeping this one busy without distracting that one, keeping this one on task while that one takes a break, and explaining for the ten millionth time why this one has to to this chore while that one has to do that chore and how despite the fact that one chore is easier than the other, it's fair because the easier chore goes to the younger child. This should be an interesting week.
