    Do you have a pet rabbit?

    Hello! Both of my bunnies have passed away now, but I did move to a new house and one morning I opened the blinds to see 2 black domestic bunnies hanging out on my patio. The one with white feet is the friendliest and I call it Star. I can feed it banana from my hand but haven't had any luck in...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    I got Bobby's remains back from cremation. There isn't much ash really, maybe about a cup or so is all that's left of my sweet love. I still miss both of my boys and adjusting to life without them sucks. As hard as it was, I would do it all over again. On the day that I got Bobby's ashes back, I...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    Thank you Vanessa, I am trying to keep busy cleaning, and doing something Big Brown and Bobby would like. Today I am weeding and planting a bed of lettuce and spinach even though I wasn't going to do that this year.

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    Another broken heart, Bobby passed away this morning. He enjoyed listening to the blues for the last 2 days and we tried to make the most of his time by going outside and enjoying a few treats. I sat under the tree in the backyard and held him as he took his last breath. He is at peace after...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    Sweet Bobby is still hanging in there and I now have a work at home job so I can keep an eye on him. I am now expressing his bladder for him to help keep him dry and I think he has learned to "hold it" until I do. It is working very well, as he has no signs of urine scald at all. He still has...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    Chris, you have my condolences on the loss of Blackie. It's hard to accept the loss of a pet, especially one that you have been nursing through a medical issue. I know how heartbreaking it is when a pet passes away and I am sending you and Speedy much love and hugs.

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    Thank you to every one for you kind words of support. It has been a challenge, but one I am ultimately glad to accept. Through all the heartache of seeing my bunnies degeneration, there is love beyond measure that endears them to me. My new job starts tomorrow, and I am setting Bobby up right...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    I think Bobby is growing weaker. I find myself trying to gauge how much time he has left. I am worried because I have to go back to work by the end of March and if he outlives that date, what will his quality of life be like? I don't want to hasten is passing, but I am very conflicted about his...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    We have been blessed with several gorgeous days in a row. It feels like a cool fall day instead of winter. The grass is still green as a matter of fact! Bobby has been outside everyday and it never fails to perk him up. He obsessed with the oregano plant and if he is in the cart, it's the...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    Thank You Vanessa for helping me by donating! I have made 2 sizeable payments on my vet bill and paid for Big Brown's cremation. I just picked up his remains yesterday as a matter of fact. I was so glad to bring him home again. Later on this year, I hope to get an urn for him. I took Bobby...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    I made Bobby a sling to hold him up. This is new for him so I am only putting him in it for 15 minutes at a time while I am supervising. He usually lays on his right side and has some urine scald. I am also concerned about keeping his spine straighter because he seems twisted while on his...

    Is this Mean to Do?

    Yes, the baby's personality will probably change when it grows up. It may become aggressive or territorial when it matures. You will need to be sure to spay or neuter it to help avoid personality swings. Actually spaying Yuki might even help her become a better friend to you as well...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    These are a few photos from before Christmas, when we had a few days of warmth and sunshine. I have always tried to give my bunnies the turnout time they love. I set up a warm bed for Bobby and got him all snuggled in. I picked grass and oregano for him and he enjoyed himself in nature...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    I was moving Christmas photos off my camera today, and I found Big Brown's last 2 photos. It makes me happy that I was petting him in his last live photo. I did take a few post mortem photos. One showing his teeth, one of his body, and one after he was wrapped for cremation. I looked over his...

    How do I care for a disabled bunny?

    Bobby just turned six in November, and I have had him since he was just 4 months old. I think his condition is caused by spondylosis. He was treated for EC but it didn't bring back his balance and strength. I don't know whether a surgery would help his condition. He is definitely still a happy...
