      My baby bunny Raven died a few weeks ago.  Every time I look at a picture of her I cry.  When will the feeling of “It was my fault” and “What if there was more I could have done” do away?  Raven was a little black lion head bunny.  I didn’t have her long.  The morning of her passing she because extremely skinny (over night).  We rushed her to the vet.  When we got there we were told that she was in critical condition and that she would take her to an overnight vet clinic where she could get help and be monitored 24/7.  We brought her over and were told that they expected her to be there for 3 night and after we could probably take her home.  About an hour after dropping her off (we were almost home) we get a devastating call from the vet.  That said that they did everything they could but sadly she had passed away.  I don’t know how this would have happened!  She was eating seconds before she passed.  The night before she was fine.  She was running around and snuggling with me like she always did.  I miss her so much and can not stop thinking that there was something that I could have done before she died.  Or maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention to her so I didn’t notice that she was sick.  Raven was literally my baby!!  She was my world!!  I carried her around everywhere.  She kissed my face.  Cuddled with me.  I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect bunny!!

        Sorry this response is so late and sorry my original post is full of errors. I have not been on in a while.  Thank you so much for your kind words.  I had lost my first bunny, PJ just a few months before Raven’s death.  I was extremely close with both bunnies.  I cried and cried about the death of my first baby.  I had gotten Raven knowing that PJ was sick and not going to be with me very much longer.  Because my bond with PJ was so strong, I thought having another friend and a bond would help his passing hurt a bit less.  I am not sure if it did or not, as I blamed myself and hated myself for handing him off to the vet to put him down.  I am still convinced that I could of done more (more tests or taken him to a specialist), but there is nothing I can do now.  Raven was young, so I expected to have her company for many years to come.  I was extremely shocked to find out that my baby had past.  I infact recently adopted a baby bunny from a local SPCA, but she is still very much distant from me.  Most time she will run if I reach to pet her.  I am really hoping that our bond will grow as she gets older and spayed.  I do hope I can soon move on from the grief stage, and be able to enjoy pictures and videos of both PJ and Raven.  Again thank you so much for your kind words.  The truly made me smile.

      I am so sorry. I cannot describe the amount of love that I cherished for my baby. He was so precious to me. It’s been nearly two years since I lost him, and I’m still grieving over his loss. I still can’t look at any pictures of him without my heart shattering, so I can relate to you. Raven had an amazing life, and you gave her a wonderful home. You did everything you could to save her, and that’s what matters. She loved you so much – her affection to you throughout her life proves everything. Raven is warm and safe, and she is no longer suffering. Take your time to grieve, but don’t be sad forever. Be positive, be strong!

      **Sending positive vibes, and lots of love.**

      I can feel how deep your love is through your words, Raven was a lucky bunny to be so cherished! My condolences for the loss of your bunny buddy 🙁 Binky free sweet Raven!

      The sad thing about rabbits is that they are very frail prey animals: they get ill quickly and hide their illness for as long as they can. As soon as you notice it, you already have a critical case on your hands. Then it’s all dependent on luck: sometimes they bounce back, sometimes they’re beyond saving. It’s every bunny owner’s nightmare to have a sick bunny: even with all the best care there’s a chance they won’t make it.

      If you want to make a memorial for her, feel free to make one here. Some people make a photo collection, draw, paint or embroider to make a personal tribute for their bunny. It helps many people to express their love for their deceased pet.

      Wishing you all the best in these difficult times!

        Thank you so much for your kind words.  Yes.  Our bond was very strong.  I took that little girl EVERYWHERE!!!  She was by far my best friend!

      @BinkyBunnies05 – Yes, I can see your message. ♥

      Aaw, did you name your SPCA bun? I can remember you saying that you were deciding between Luna and Willow. Tough choices – they are both adorable! Although… you could call her Luna Willow!

      Kyra, it happened to me, too. After I lost my first bun, I was left with Binkie, who decided she didn’t want anything to do with me. She was a baby, and she very distant from me too, and would lunge and bite at me often. It wasn’t after she became sick and nearly died and then went through the trauma of losing another bun, that she became closer to me. I thought it’d never happen! It took a while, but now I love her so much, and I can’t imagine it any other way. So just be patient and don’t worry, it’ll all work out eventually.

      And it’s okay, I haven’t moved on from the grief stage even after two years, and I still can’t look at any pictures or even saying my bun’s name without me bursting into tears. We all deal with grief differently, and that’s okay too!

        Yes.  I named the bun.  Her name is Lollipop because she licks everything!  Poppy for short.

        She is warming up to me.  She still isn’t spayed so I think that explains some of her mood swings.  She is getting spayed this month I think so I think she might get better.  We’ll see.  I am scared though.  I friend of mine had her bunny neutered.  During the surgery his heart stopped twice.  They had to do half the surgery while he was awake.  I can’t even think about losing a third bun in such little time.  She seems to be healthy now so hopefully she will be fine, but I can not go through the trauma of losing my third baby.

      Aaw, Lollipop is such a cute name! Don’t panic about getting her spayed – sure it really is scary, but hopefully everything will turn out okay! ♥
