Hazard and Raisin

This post brings good news and bad news.

Good news: I adopted another bunny!
Some of you might remember that I'm already a bunny owner from this post.
So, please meet Hazard, the latest addition to my family!

Hazard Lionhead bunny

Hazard's a 4-month old Lionhead that I adopted from a rabbit rescue when I boarded my bunnies with them. The rescue's a no-kill shelter and from what I can see, it's run extremely well by people who know what they are doing and who cares. So, if you think you can make a long-term commitment to a bunny, please check them out!

Bad news: Raisin just passed away today. :`(
She was having a case of runny stools yesterday, but I thought I'll self-medicate and feed her some of Tobey's medication. She seemed slightly better last night and was moving around. However, I was obviously wrong, because she took a turn for the worse this morning and collapsed in her litter pan. She cried just before she passed away and I think it's probably the saddest thing that I had to hear.....

I console myself by saying that at least she didn't have to suffer for long and she had a good 3 years with us. Plus she did get to spend the last few weeks of her life with Hazard, who treated her and Tobey like his Mummy and Daddy.

Happy times - Tobey, Hazard and Raisin

Rest in peace, Ray-ray, I'll miss you <3

Thanks for the comforting words ladies. Good thing is that other 2 bunnies seem okay, if a bit subdued. :)

Thanks Maggie and Inaya.
I am now trying to spend more time with my other bunnies, especially Tobey. He's so special to me because he's my first bunny. I pick them up and hug them a lot but I don't think they enjoy that much :p
