Well I came home early tonight an on my way to the kitchen I stopped at the bunny condo to see what buggs was up to. she was just setting there on the top floor looking at me and I noticed her taco chip was still setting there where it was when the girlfriend gave it to her like she does every morning. I'm wondering why its still there as much as she loves those things .
ok so somethings fishy, I know the girlfriend mentioned last night that she seemed a little funny and that maybe we better take her back in and have her teeth looked at being they really gave her a problem a year ago and she got real sick.
We tried everything to get her to chew wood or anything that would wear her teeth down ....... nothing worked. and that causes her teeth to give her trouble.
Ok so I grab a stool and get up where I can pet her and she barely moves , just watches me. I hop down and go get her favorite bluberry yogurt covered rasins and give her one. she took it in her mouth and tried to chew it but it just fell out and she just looked down at it and then ignored it.
Oh man , now I know we have a problem. I run out and grab the carrier and put her in it and hop in the truck to get her to the vet.
Get there and check in. vet comes in the room after a while ........ same one that looked at her teeth before. He asks whats the problem and I tell him how she is acting. Just the way she was before when her teeth were over growing. Like I told him it always worries me when she acts differant at all being I have always heard how the least bit sick they get and they go pretty fast.
Takes her temperature ..... normal. Has me hold her down so he can look at her teeth.
It was strang that she didn't even try anything as far as putting up any kind of fight, just layed there.
Ok so he says the teeth look ok. He decides I better leave her overnight and they will give her something to see if it will help ..... check back with us tomorrow.
Ok hop in the truck to head home and call the girlfriend to tell her that they are keeping her over night and we will check with them in the morning.
So I get home , look at some mail and my cell phone goes off. Looking at the read out ......... hmmmmm its the vet.
Answer the phone and he says I have some bad news, a few minutes after you left she started having seizures and died.
Ok so Im looking at our two cats ......... their setting on the couches across from each other staring at each other acting like they know something is wrong. They have been that way for hours not moving. Girlfriend went to bed an hour ago ...... think she is tired of crying off and on.
I feel guilty I told her I didn't want to get too attached to a rabbit when we got it, being they do not live all that long and I took it real hard when I had to have my springer put down years ago.
Now we got her 3 years ago when I was out in the yard watering, when she just came be bopping thru the yard. As many mean dogs as there are around here I just picked her up..... she seemed tame and we never found the owners. Ok so girlfreind decided she needed a condo and wire fencing so she can be safe in the yard ..... my job.
Well I realize now no matter what , I became attached to her , not near what the girlfriend was but enough to realize I already miss her. Think it will be interesting seeing what the cats do once they realize shes not coming back ...... one of the cats played tag with the bunny all the time when she was out in the evening at least every other day.
There still on the couches, looking at each other .... haven't moved an inch ....... yep they know somethings wrong
Boy ....... did that happen fast
