        Guppy was just a month old. She’s only been a week in our care before she died. When we first welcomed her, we didn’t know she had so much wounds– on her face and even on her feet. (Details omitted)

        Yesterday, I let her out around the house for almost half a day. I was onlt able to check up on her by 4pm, as I waited for my hosting to finish. When I saw her, she was covered in so much dust and filth. She’s like a gray snowball. (Details omitted — OP attempted to clean the rabbit)

        Then, she seizured. I got scared. It was so scary. Recalling it now, as I write, makes me take fast breaths. She was just running while on her sides and stationary.

        There was a time when I put her back on the table she stretched like there was no tomorrow while she was having a seizure. I didn’t know what to do, and my tears were already falling. She stopped breathing, but came back. Still, she was in the same position. WHAT WAS MOST PAINFUL HAD BEEN THAT I HEARD HER SQUEAK. AROUND 2 OR 3 TIMES.

        When my brother came back with the towel, he was the one who transferred her. But then, it was also the time when she completely lost her breath. It was as if she just waited us to be there for her before she finally passed away.

        Now, Guppy is gone all because of me and my mistakes.

        I’m sorry Guppy. I’m sorry for making you experience pain, and for not being able to bring you back.

        I’m sorry for being incompetent and ignorant.

        I love you so much Guppy. The past few days had been tough because of school, but because you were there, I was able to smile and get through them. I will forever miss and cherish you in my heart.

        My puffball, I love you.

          I omitted some details in your post as reading about how you attempted to clean Guppy’s fur may be distressing for some users since baths are generally not recommended for rabbits and we’d like the focus of this topic to be supporting you during this difficult time.

          I am so sorry to read about Guppy’s unexpected passing — you certainly cared very much for Guppy.

            8’m very sorry you lost Guppy. She was very young, far too young to be separated from her mother and siblings. It’s very difficult to care for such a very young bun, they’re extremely fragile when they’re so young.

            Binky free, little Guppy.

              What a dreadful experience, this is heartbreaking. It’s clear that you loved her so much. I’m very sorry for your loss 😥

              I’m afraid that other bunnies may be at risk though: bunnies are fully dependent on breastfeeding by their mum until their 6th week and can’t leave the nest until their 8th week. Where did you get Guppy from? Did she come from a breeder or a shop? You and your family may save a lot of other bunnies if there’s an unethical breeder who can be stopped.

                I’m sorry for you loss. It sounds like you cared for Guppy very much. As the others said, she was very young and young bunnies can be so fragile.
