It's not common to have them suddenly die at thatage :( I could only speculate as to somepossible causes such as viral, intestinal blockage or a congenitaldisorder such as a heart defect. In the occasionally caseswhere we loose them around the age of a year, it has beenviral/bacterial enterotoxemia which is not as common as mucoidenteropathy in much younger rabbits.

In Bella's case, she did not exhibit the common symptoms of enterotoxemia.

Oh Mambo....I'm sosorry to see this...I can't even imagine how you are feeling. You andStephie both must just be heartbroken. I'm certain you are looking backfor clues and wishing you had answers. These things can be sofrustrating and hurtful. My thoughts are with you.

It's possible. If it was a blockage due to GI stasis, she passed unusually quickly :(

Once again I thank you for all of your bestwishes. I will be burying Bella in our backyard this afternoon. I thinkStephie will be OK. Last night when I let her out of her cage, shequickly went over to where Bella's cage was. Then she promptly decidedto see what kind of trouble she could get herself into. Then she didabout six Bunny 500's around the couch, so I Knew for sure by that shewas OK.

I definitely plan on getting another bunny, but certainly not rightaway. Probably not till spring. I probably won't get another DH becauseit would remind me to much of Bella. Not that I would ever want toforget her, it would just weird me out to much. I'm leaning towardsHolland Lops or Himalayans, but you just never know. It will also seemvery weird seeing another animal in Bella's cage. I had just gotten hera new wabbitat cage too last weekend and she seemed to like it.

I hope all of you will give your buns an extra hug and a treat inBella's memory. Once again, thank you all. I'm so touched that you allloved her as much as I did.

I was kind of worried about my Al lastnight. I gave him a treat whic he ussually begsfor. He just layed there and ignored it.I picked him uo and he ussualy does not like that. I checkedhim and didn't see anything wrong. He was kind of cuddly fora change. He seems back to his old self today.

Dearest Mambo101,

I went down to New York City yesterday with a couple of friends and they spent the night last night.

This morning, as we were all waking up, I was saying "Good Morning" toTucker, Fauna, and Cali as I always do. My friends started picking onme because they said, "My God, Carolyn! You sound as if it's the firsttime you've ever seen them." Finding your post made me feel a bit less'crazy'.

It's true. Every single day, they get the same reception from me when Iwake up. Knowing how quickly a rabbit can pass, and having seen howfast a problem can present itself - literally overnight with rabbits -I truly feel as if every day that I'm able to have them with me is agift. I don't take it for granted that they're healthy.

Bella was the sweetest little baby, and I so love Stephie as much. Ireally was moved by the picture you posted just a few days ago that wasthe avatar you now have. The look on Bella's face is priceless asStephie approached her cage. That picture really struck a cord in myheart.

I'm sorry, so very sorry, Mambo. It's so devastating when they pass onovernight without any warning of problems. It really throws you, andeveryone else on the forum, off when this happens to one of our own. Itreinforces how delicate they and life are.

I'll certainly be thinking and praying for you during this difficult day and days ahead.

Thank God Bella got to experience your tender loving care while she was here on earth.

With Deepest Sympathies,
-Carolyn

This is so very upsetting. I lost Jetlast year on valentines day, and she was just under a year old. I criedfor the whole weekend.

I hope you feel better soon.
