Hey everyone.
I haven't been on here in awhile. I adopted a female russian tort. from a friend in March 2017- she was clearly being neglected, and I absolutely fell in love with her. I renamed her Ollie, and I attempted to turn a rabbit hutch into an enclosure for her. To be completely transparent with you guys- I feel like I am not caring for her enough. I am trying the best that I can, but I know someone, somewhere, can truly help her thrive. I am extremely dedicated to her, but my room is two small to house her, I am moving to go to college soon, I have two cats that are too curious, and her health is slowly declining no matter how much I bring her to the vet and follow their instructions. I cannot bear the thought of letting her be adopted by a stranger- she needs a tender loving home, and I feel like I can no longer provide that. The whole situation is awful. I also have a pre-existing medical condition that flares up, and I am just not home enough to watch her, bathe her, handle her, and love her. (And of course feed her, but I always remember to do that).
In other words- what are my options? Giving her up would kill me, but I am not the best home for her, no matter how hard I try.
For reference: I am located in the Portland metro area of Oregon.

If you feel you are not able to care for her correctly, then the humane thing to do is to give her to someone who can.
