Pet compatibility Match up with Hollywood Pyschics Review

A few weeks ago we were contacted to have a free reading with www.hollywoodpsychics.com,I have seen a couple of other blogs try this out so I thought why not just for fun,well to start out the first attempt to have a chat with Nancy was a fail as some thing came up which made me late and then I had problems login in for the chat,then the second attempt went wrong to as the login in problems happened again some kind of technical problem,and Finally on the third attempt we managed to have the chat with Nancy her name on the web site is Jackie.So here is how it went.

Nancy: Hi Rachel,We finally got to connect.Its so nice to Meet you.
Me: Hi Nancy, yes finally,nice to meet you too.
Nancy: I have been looking at Speedy and I have to tell you he is adorable.
Me: Hahahaha yes he is.
Nancy: What part of England do you live in:
Me: Devon.
Nancy: OK,I was in Cobam for 2 years living there.
Me: Oh not sure where that is.
Nancy: I have to ask how old Speedy is.
Me He was 2 in October.
Nancy: Its in Surrey south of London.
            Here are some things which I picked up on about Speedy.......
            He is the king of his Realm,he loves life and is very adventuress,He loves nature and the outdoors
            And he would prefer not to be held.
            Is he around other rabbits?
Me: Oh he loves his cuddles,He's an only rabbit.
Nancy: I see... One other thing I do see is how close he is to you.You are very gentle,you could tame a lion               with your bare hands.
Me: Hahaha that's what my dad says too.
Nancy: Do you have any concerns or questions you would like to ask?
Me: Not really I have never done this before,so its kind of go with the flow.
Nancy: OK,let me ask you does Speedy get to go out side?
Me: Yes he does.
Nancy: I know he loves that....Does he sometimes have a mind of his own?
Me: yes he does.. and Always.
Nancy: I feel he likes being a rabbit but he almost looks at you as his mother,would you agree?
Me: Yes he's my baby.
Nancy: I know the two of you have a special bond,but is there anyone else in Speedy's Life?
Me: My Hubby,his dad.
Nancy: OK, as I did pick up on a male figure and I feel he likes him but not the same as you.
Me: That's what Hubby says too.
Nancy: Ha...in fact Speedy may ask for more attention when he's around.
Me: Oh yes.
Nancy: I keep seeing beautiful flowers around you and Speedy,Do you have a garden?
Me: Yes we do.
I did see Speedy dressed up as a pirate,and I have to tell you that was adorable.
Me: hahahaha it suits him.
Nancy: Yes it does,and I get the feeling that a book about Speedy would be very popular.Have you thought             about that?
Me: I have but it takes time and then getting people interested in it.
Nancy: Yes but do think about it dear as I feel it could be profitable for you down the road.I see you have                your own business?
Me: Hmm maybe I will,yes its just a side line.
Nancy: The cards are very cute.
Me: Thanks its just a hobby really.
Nancy: I also pick up on another rabbit in your past was there one?
Me: There have been two.
Nancy: That makes sense then as I got the Empress which means the mother and it has a 3 on it.
            What were their names?
Me: Caramel was the 1st and Thumper was the 2nd.
Nancy: Oh....and how long did they live for dear?
Me: Caramel 6 1/2 and Thumper 8 1/2.
Nancy: I imagine it was like losing a child?
Me: Yes,feels like I'm dying with them every time.
Nancy: I know how hard that is...but what I want you to know is that you did your best for them,and I feel               you are a very spiritual person and you know they are ok now.Speedy is very healthy and I would                 not doubt if he live's to be in his teens.
Me: I know, they were sick,they are in a better place now and one day I will see them again.He is now.
Nancy: Yes you will see them again and I feel they are just fine,no sickness.
Me: They are having lots of adventures,I have no doubt of that.
Nancy: Oh yes Thumper holds a special place in your heart,I know that.
Me : Yes but they both do as with their dad too.

It was there we got cut off short so we never got to finish properly which was a shame but these things happen.So what did I think about the reading.....
I think there was a lot Nancy got from Speedy's blog and a couple of things she didn't hit the nail on the head quite right,like with Speedy not liking to be held ,he does like it and his cuddles but when he has had enough he lets you know so maybe she was picking up on that.and then there was the bit about my first two rabbits and she kept saying that there was a special place in my heart for Thumper and while that is true Caramel was my first true love for a rabbit as a pet...he picked me and we fell in love and when he died it was in my arms and I truly felt like I was dying too,he was my baby as I had him before me and the hubby started to live together and while he took to my hubby he was still always mine where as with Thumper it was the other way round he was more for hubby than me but we both picked Thumper,and yes we did develop a wonderful bond but that was over a long time.The bonds that Speedy has with us are different dad and his boy ,and mum and her boy so those relationship will be different.Now the intriguing things...she said I was very gentle and could tame a lion with my bare hands,that is something similar to what my dad always says and I have always been able to get animals to come to me and get close too them including wild animals,now that is something that is not in Speedy's blog,another intriguing thing is how long she feels Speedy will be with us a prediction ?Maybe we will find out one day and the other thing was the writing a book about Speedy another prediction?Maybe who know as I have only ever written short stories about him so that is another one to look out for in the future and the other intriguing thing was the Empress card with the 3 on it but does that mean I will only have those 3 bunnies in my life?That is something I would have liked to ask.Over all it was a good experience and it must have been hard for her to read me as most people find it hard till they get to know me as I can be quite guarded and short with my conversation with Strangers.So would I do this again? I don't know Maybe,maybe not.....I think these things should be done light hearted and shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Speedy's Feet!

This is of Speedy from Last Week,Sporting new socks for his back feet he's been running around so much the last few months that he has wore the fur down on his feet front and back ones,still waiting for supplies to protect his front feet,so we are restricting him to very short periods to go out in a bid to keep his paws safe,as soon as we have him kitted out he can have more fun!

Sorry we haven't been around Much but trying to entertain an bun and restrict him to is very time consuming.

Rabbit Awareness Week - 10th to 18th May Guest post by Justine Quirk

With Rabbit Awareness Week coming up we were asked if we would have a guest post from Support Adoption For Pets a charity that supports rescues and shelters in the UK.
This has Been written by Justine Quirk(Fundraising and communications coordinator at SAFP).

Rabbit Awareness Week - 10th to 18th May.

Rabbit Awareness Week(RAW for short) is taking place 10th to 18th May 2014.The event aims to highlight the ever increasing issue of neglect which is suffered by many pet rabbits across the UK.Support Adoption For Pets have over 350 small adoption centres.Adoption centres can be found in most of the Pets At Home stores across the UK,each of which will feed them,and keep them warm and safe,provide fresh bedding and give veterinary treatment for each small animal that comes in.

It is a common misconception that Rabbits are a cheap alternative to other animals.Rabbits really do have complex needs,which Rabbit Awareness Week aims to make clear.Those who are considering re-homing a rabbit,or indeed those that already have them as a pet,should make sure that they are aware of all the lengths that owners need to go to so as to ensure that their rabbit is living in a great home.

According to RAW ,there are 5 main welfare areas of which rabbit owners need to be aware.These are as follows:
. Environment
. Behaviour
. Diet
. Company
. Health

Their Environment
It is vitally important that rabbits are able to stretch their legs!Rabbit Hutches should really be attached to a larger run or exercise area,in order to give your bunny freedom to move around and exercise.Lots of bedding should be provided in the bedroom area to keep them warm at night,and you should make sure that the hutch provides adequate protection from extreme weather.
Their Behaviour
It's commonly assumed that rabbits are no hassle to look after and care for,however they really require a lot more attention than many people realise.It is recommended that you try to create  a "wild" environment for your rabbit to live in.For example,tunnels,tree stumps,twigs and digging boxes are great to create a realistic "wild" environment,This can help to keep you rabbit happy and healthy.
Their Diet
It is recommended that you feed each rabbit a)its own body size of good quality hay each day b)around one handful of suitable fresh greens each morning and evening and c) a table spoon of commercial rabbit nuggets once every day.Please note that rabbit muesli should not be fed under any circumstances as this has been linked to dental disease in rabbits.
Their Company
Rabbits are naturally social animals!For this reason,just keeping one rabbit is highly discouraged - and ideally,rabbits should live in pairs or groups.Its is also important that you neuter your rabbits,in order to prevent unwanted kittens and to prevent uterine cancer in female rabbits.
Their Health
It is important for rabbit owners to be aware of the common health problems that might affect your rabbit,to ensure that you are able to identify if your rabbit is suffering,as it is a lot easier to treat or even avoid problems if they are identified early.Rabbit owners should make sure to research into flystrike,fleas,lice,E.Cuniculi,myxomatosis and VHD,in order to understand the implications of each and how to prevent it.

If you would be interested in re-homing a rabbit,why not find out more about the rescue centres near you at Support Adoption For Pets.
