    I'm so sorry for the loss of your bunny. I lost my dog very recently who was perfectly healthy acting until that fateful afternoon when she refused her lunch. I took her in immediately to the vet who ran a bunch of tests, gave her an antibiotic injection and sent her home with me, stating they couldnt tell what was wrong with her. They didn't warn me she was going to pass that night. I watched her pass away, it was very hard, she was panicky and in pain, I couldn't pick her up (80 pounds) and put her in my van to rush her to the pet emergency. When she quieted in the early morning hours, I thought she was feeling better and fell asleep, She fell asleep alright, forever. I thought, too, she had a few good years left on her.

    You did everything you could have done. It is hard and you will mourn the loss for a very long time. Grieving process is so hard! You just have to take it day by day.

    I am so sorry for your loss.

    Please don't second guess yourself. We lost our dog Lucky due to kidney failure, and we had been taking her to the vet. They gave her medication & fluids on Friday (they couldn't determine what exactly was happening) and we were going to bring her back Monday. That Friday night, she just laid down and was gone. When we talked to her regular vet that Monday, he was shocked she was gone. He said that with kidney failure it is hard to detect.

    It is such a hard decision that you had to make and I remember when we made that decision for one of our hamsters, Elmer. He was having seizures and in such distress. It was heartbreaking.

    Pets are family members and it is so hard to lose someone so special.

    My heart goes out to you! I am sure you are a wonderful bun-Mom.
    Peace & Love, Gypsy

    Thank you for your kind thoughts. My hearts go out to all of you who have lost furbabies too. It's just such a sucker punch to the stomach, especially when it wasn't expected. People always think it's "just a pet," but I don't have kids; my bunnies are my kids. I feel like I lost my kid.

    Japanfan, bunnies definitely can re-bond. Trixie is actually my other bun Axel's second companion; his first companion died very young in a fluke accident, and he was so depressed and unwilling to eat that we rushed out and adopted Trixie, and the two buns quickly bonded. It's unbearable to think of replacing her so soon, but I might have to. Axel sat in his litter box all alone last night, and he just looked so pitiful.

    So sorry. I know how it is to lose pets - so much a part of the family.

    Cheylana, I am so sorry, please don't beat yourself up. You did everything you could. In the end, our lives are so much better with our little furry family members than without them. The result is that we will all have to be heartbroken from time to time because they just don't live long enough. The best thing you can do is take your time to grieve and then look for your next fur baby.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    From our bunny house, to yours, every sympathy in the world.

    You did everything you should have. Bunnies are just so good at hiding their symptoms; it is not at all your fault.

    Hugs.

    I am so sorry Cheylana. Like others have said, you did everything you could to care for her the best way you possibly could. I know that doesn't make it any easier though. (((((Hugs))))))

    Thank you all so much. At least World Championships is going on now; I guess I'll try to distract myself a little bit with that.

    I am so sorry, ((((((HUGS)))))

    We lost our boy bunny just over 2 years ago. Like your girl, he was one of a bonded pair. He was only 5 and died of cancer. We knew he was sick but figured he had a few more months to live. One day he stopped eating and that was the day he died.

    It's so hard. Don't beat yourself up. You are a great bunny mom. (I know you are a great bunny mom because I am a bunny mom too so I can recognize that!) You did all you could. Bunnies are notorious for hiding their illnesses until the very end. Chances are by the time you noticed anything wrong, it would have been too late.

    We were devastated when we lost our Peanut. Time helps....but what helped us the most was adopting another boy bunny to have in our house. It took us about 6 months to be ready for another bunny, but it was the best decision we made as he is a treasure.

    Hang in there....I know there will be lots more bunnies in your life to love. In the meantime, dote on your other bun and love him lots. He'll need it too.

    More ((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))
    I'm not spoiled...I deserve all my stuff.

    I think all creatures have their bad days. I would have just thought, "poor thing, she's having a bad day". I don't think anyone expects a loved one to go so quickly. (((Cheylana)))

    Maybe one way to look at it is that Trixie had the bestest Mom on the planet for six years. And is now smiling down on you with peace, love and gratitude.

    P.S. I'm glad you're not keeping yourself from having a good cry. I personally think that plays a big role in the healing process. Let the hurt out so that only the fond memories remain.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I have lost two buns, one to e. cuniculi and kidney failure and one to e. cuniculi and cancer. I spent thousands but still feel guilty. I rescued two more in their honor. You did your best and good luck if you rebond. It's so sad, they are very fragile.
