A Sick Bunny

For various reasons I don't normally blog about personal stuff but I just want to mention our beautiful pet rabbit Loppy who is very sick. In fact we are pretty sure she has Myxomatosis and is dying. She has only been with us a short while but we have all fallen in love with her. I have been amazed at how friendly, curious and interactive a little rabbit can be. She is a real bundle of joy. She has been to see the vet twice in the last week and we are bringing her again today. This may be a one way journey. In the big scheme of things a sick rabbit may not seem all that big a deal but she is a member of our family and we are all devastated.

Sad news...I haven't had a pet for a long time now but have considered a kitten/cat. I'll save that idea for later though.

Hope you bring better news later...

Thanks for your thoughts DM. Sadly Loppy didn't make it. The Vet confirmed Myxo and the poor creature was already far gone - could no longer see in fact. We opted to let him put her out of her misery. We miss her very much.
