One of my two house-rabbits died this morning. I can't even begin to explain how I feel. I don't want to be alone now and I am.
I THINK IF I WAS A BUNNY RABBIT AND HAD A CHANCE TO HAVE A FAMILY TO LIVE WITH, I WOULD WANT YOU TO BE MY FAMILY.You're all so kind.
I'm not going to get another bunny now because we just want to concentrate on getting Elvi (surviving bunny) through this. He was next to Harvey and sitting with him when he died, so he knows what's happened. As the vet's receptionist said when we were discussing it afterwards, at least Elvi knows what happened - it's not as if we just took a live Harvey away to the vet and Elvi never saw him again. Both myself and Elvi were with him at the end.
Elvi's now behind the settee in the dining room. He's still eating, thank goodness, so I'm giving him lots of sprout peelings (his favourite) and banana chips which he's accepting. He's always been a calm and laid-back little bunny so I'm sure he'll pull through. Hubby and I spent a lot of time last night sitting under the dining room table talking to him. (Hope word doesn't get out - even more cause to cart me off!)
I'm really gonna miss that bunny. He was so lovely. RIP Harveybun...may you be in a land of carrot peelings and sultanas now.
