    RIP - Rex Harrison (9.5 years old)

    Thanks, everyone :group:This forum is truly such a wonderful place. It's been over four years since I joined and I know that I became a better rabbit owner because of my time here. I probably won't be around much anymore, if at all. I just wanted you all to now how much I have deeply appreciated...

    RIP - Rex Harrison (9.5 years old)

    March 13, 1999 - September 15, 2008 :rip: I took this photo just a few weeks ago. It's not quite the last one I ever took of you, but I think it works. It's just...you, Rex. Always on the go. Always doing your own thing. You knew who you were and what you wanted, and you could be both...

    (RIP) Rex is very, very sick (CLOSED)

    He's gone.

    (RIP) Rex is very, very sick (CLOSED)

    Rex is dying. He really is this time. I'm going to go love on him. :tears2:

    (RIP) Rex is very, very sick (CLOSED)

    Thanks, Pipp. I did have the thought re: his heart. I mean, Peanut had the exact same symptoms (tired, labored breathing, too weak to eat), and that was largely due to a heart condition that cropped right toward the end of her life. Of course, the vet said that heart conditions aren't really...

    (RIP) Rex is very, very sick (CLOSED)

    He is eating some. I mixed up some Critical Care with water and a little baby food, and he ate a good tablespoon or two of that. Like I said, his appetite is somewhat there, but he's just so weak :sigh: It's tough to find the balance of Rex's needs, my knowledge of rabbits, and my intuition as...

    (RIP) Rex is very, very sick (CLOSED)

    Thanks, Angie :hug: I'm just taking things hour by hour. I haven't completely ruled out the vet, but unless he's in distress, I'm going to leave things alone. He peed where he was lying in the corner, so I moved him to his bed (for a third time), and this time he hobbled over to his Cottontail...

    angieluv wrote: His history is that he started losing weight, and losing fur, this past January. A very high fat/high calorie diet has kept the weight on, mostly, and his fur grew back. He was tested extensively and he doesn't have anything wrong with his skin, and we did do a blood panel...

    (RIP) Rex is very, very sick (CLOSED)

    I did give him another dose of Simethicone, about a half-hour ago (just after SOOSKA posted - thank you!). Still no change. His tummy isn't bloated, or uncomfortable. I haven't called the vet. I'm not trying to be intentionally obtuse, it's just that in my extensive experience with this...

    (RIP) Rex is very, very sick (CLOSED)

    Almost two-hours later, and the Simethicone doesn't seem to be having an effect. He does have an appetite, but he's too tired, weak and unsteady to eat. He seems to be fighting the urge to sleep :? I've also given him some Nutri-Cal, and put a space heater in my room to bring the temperature up...

    (RIP) Rex is very, very sick (CLOSED)

    I think he's dying :( I found him this morning when I came home from work (I work third shift). He's laying next to his food dish, still mostly full of last night's pellets. His breathing is somewhat labored, though he doesn't appear to be stressed. His whole body is chilled. In less than...

    Rex and Peanut's Photo Thread

    As you can see in the photo, Rex's fur has (mostly) returned. He is still looking a little raggedy around his ears and neck, but that doesn't seem to bother him. He such a content little bunny. I also wanted to share pictures of our pet cemetary in the woods. It's a very peaceful place to sit...

    Rex and Peanut's Photo Thread

    Rex, my old man, my tattered velveteen rabbit: And so time went on, and the little Rabbit was very happy–so happy that he never noticed how his beautiful velveteen fur was getting shabbier and shabbier, and his tail becoming unsewn, and all the pink rubbed off his nose where the Boy had...

    Dill: the most awesome bunny on the planet

    I can't tell you how heartbroken I am to return to RO to find another one of my favorite bunnies gone :tears2: R.I.P. Dill :rainbow:You were a wonderful, wonderful boy.

    The Formerly Bald Bunny known as Rex

    (previous posts: Bald Shoulders? / Balding Again / Rex Update / Vet Visit) This was Rex before he started balding in January, this was his fur loss at its worst, and this was generally what he looked like for several months afterward. You'll need to see those photos to fully appreciate that...

    Pebbles Head Tilt

    New kitten(s)???

    I'm sorry if you feel that you're being hounded or harped on. For my part, I truly was just trying to brainstorm and see if there might be a better way to work things out :hug:

    New kitten(s)???

    I don't know you and I don't know your situation, so if you feel like the bathroom is definitely spacious and stimulating enough to meet your cats' needs, then that's great :) I 100% agree with you that boundaries are safe and good, and for that reason, our cats are also indoors only...
