      I’m a bit worried about my girl. Not wanting to eat and looking like she’s possibly got some stomach troubles.
      It’s been a long time since I’ve seen this in her. She used to have bouts when younger but we’ve been on a good run for years. She just had her molars done a couple weeks ago.
      Looks like we will be going to the vet. Being Friday afternoon here, I don’t want to wait then get caught out over the weekend when consult hours are limited.

      Worried.

      Bella is having the exact same troubles tonight too. She got her teeth trimmed recently but now she doesn’t want to eat and looks to have some stomach issues too. I gave her some Simethecone but looks like we are headed to the vets as well.

      Well I walked in from work anxious to check her and she seemed interested in food but it was short-lived. Shes still not right.
      She ate a little critical care and I can see she’s pooped at least. She’s passed some really big fecal poos. She’s done this the last few days and I noticed her eating some actual hay during the week. Not the first time she’s had problems after hay. So odd!
      It seems she just can’t cope with proper hay.

      We didnt get to the vet today as earliest appt I could get was lunchtime Saturday.

      Thanks for thinking of her! I just had awful feeling even though we’ve been through this before.

      I am so sorry to hear this. I know the feeling of seeing something wrong and working out a vet visit but having my bunny pass suddenly before it could happen. This can leave a real deep loss, and even more tortureous, thoughts of what ifs. I hope the “what ifs” are not haunting you. Jersey couldn’t have had a better human in her life. There is no doubt she felt that all the way through to the end. I know your heart hurts deeply. Going through the grieving process is not easy. . Be sure to be extra kind to yourself right now. You are in our thoughts. Sending hugs and healing vibes to you

I know Jersey was so very special to you. What a lucky bunny she was to have such love in her life.

      May your happy days with her remain forever in your heart, until you are with her again.

I just saw this, I just can’t believe it! *hugs* Jersey was one of the first rabbits I really got to know on this forum and I’ve always enjoyed reading about her adventures and seeing her pictures. I can’t believe she’s gone. I think she would be surprised to know how many people are grieving for her all over the world, she was such a dear thing and we all loved her. I’m sending you lots of virtual hugs, and virtual tissues for your tears Kate.

      Again, thank you for the condolences.

      I’ve been a member here almost as long as I’ve had Jersey so I know many of you knew her from her very 1st year.
      She turned six in October.

      It’s strange here at home, adjusting to life without her. It’s been hard…
      I desperately want to hold her again.
      You’ll be glad to know Rumball is doing really well. Better then I thought he would. He had an opportunity to see her after she passed but I didn’t think he understood. However, he is coping quite well so that’s a relief.

      I don’t know what happened.
      I can only think something else major was going on & that’s what caused her to not want to eat in the first place. Not just gas or a blockage. Maybe her body couldn’t cope like it could in the past? I just cannot say.

      I was doing the usual things to try give comfort & see if I could turn her appetite around. I did so before then after work. As I said, I thought she was starting to turn the corner after I’d come home. I had her on my lap for over an hour. She seemed content to stay put resting and absorbing the warmth from my body heat.

      The decline was sudden. Her head would bob up then wobble, then she’d lie it on the side. She did this a few times over. Her ears felt like they were getting cooler also.

      Having just nursed Maple through head-tilt, I started to wonder if I was seeing neurological signs of that. I started to warm a heat pack then went to set Jersey on the floor to see if she could stand. To watch her head motions. But she lay down and started take some breaths by the mouth & her gums looked pale. I scooped her up & knew I was losing her.
      She went quickly and I hope without pain.

      I know in hindsight that it was a gift to be holding her as she passed. At the time though, it was distressing. Feeling so helpless to stop it, desperate for her to stay.
      I wonder now if she was having a stroke.

      Jersey was my first rabbit and the one that is responsible for my love of all rabbits. She’ll always hold a very special place in my heart. I still remember the exact moment I saw her. This bright-eyed little thing in a pet store. She was the only one in with big, sleepy cashmere rabbits and big guinea pigs. They were all down one end and there she was, at the other end, periscoping and peering over the barricade. Beautiful bright brown eyes and a brain going on overdrive.
      I couldn’t look away.
      She was a spontaneous buy but the best decision. I don’t even want to imagine my life if I hadn’t known Jersey.

      Binky Free my darling, darling girl. You are so loved. Always will be.

      I believe you are right, this sounds like a stroke and if so, yes it was quick and painless. You were there to give her comfort as she passed and she knew you loved her so.

      I too have tears running down my cheeks – how beautiful! I lost my 15 yo poodle whom I moved into my bedroom knowing it was his last days and he passed right under the window with the sun shining. I’m forever grateful for that (& I knew I was losing him) – and as sad as it is losing your Jersey, it must bring you comfort that you both had that time together and she passed knowing she was secure and loved in your arms. How wonderful (I hope that’s ok to say?). Ok, gotta go – I need a tissue…. Thinking of you still.

      I’m crying reading this too JerseyGirl, I know how much it hurts to lose your first bunny, the one responsible for your love of bunnykind. I’m so sorry for your loss, I think it sounds like a stroke too, and I know it is little consolation, but she would have been able to feel you holding her and the love pouring out of your heart onto her little body in her last moments.

      I agree with the others about it probably being a stroke of some kind. If that is what it was, then there was probably not much you could have done anyway. Although heartbreaking, at least you can take comfort in the fact that it wasn’t anything you did wrong. I’m glad you were able to be with her and love her in her final moments. I’m sure she knew she was loved very much.

      Sorry Jersey (Kate), in my previous post (as I was reading everyone else’s kind/beautiful words I noticed I typed ‘he’ not ‘she’). I have corrected this with the edit, but I know this isn’t good enough under the circumstances – I ‘know’ Jersey is a ‘she’, and my only excuse, I was very teary (crying) at the time and I hope you accept my apologies – I’m sure you have been reading the posts for comfort and support and don’t want you to think I was just ‘adding’ for the sake of it. I truly am devastated for your loss of Jersey, and hope that what I said in my previous post gives you some comfort. Maybe not now, but later… when you still want to cry, but you have no tears left – so the pain just sits inside till your ready (your tears refill) to cry again, then you can stop and smile and say – how beautiful! Jersey had a great life! How lucky was I? Jersey left me – from ‘my’ arms. Not now, but later, you will think back and you won’t be sad, you’ll smile.

      We really do… sometimes I think about this with Simba since we don’t know his true age and he’s been having so many respiratory problems that no one can seem to get him past… It’s so hard since we love them so much. You gave her a wonderful life, Jersey. And in the end it’s worth the heartbreak knowing if they weren’t with us they could have had much worse. <3 <3

      Oy. I swear every time I come on this post I cry! I’m glad your spirits are up and you’re taking comfort from everybunny else though. You are just amazing with your rabbits and she is definitely binkying her heart out watching over you and the others up there in her Bunny Heaven! (if you believe in that of course!) If not, she’s still binkying around somewhere with all of the passed buns on BB. They’re probably all up there talking crap about us all… and what doofs of humans we were sometimes. LOLOLOLOL <3

      I feel so horrible, binky free Jersey. I feel your pain, losing any bunny is hard, but your first, the one that inspired your love, the one that taught you so much, losing that one is especially hard. I, having gone through the exact same thing with Bella, feel for you. I feel like they somehow had a connection, they wanted to hop over together. It was just so similar. Our first bunny, the special one, six years old, they had some tummy troubles, but the suddenly passed in our arms. On the same day and everything. I feel like you are telling my story, its exactly the same. All I am saying is take comfort that you are not alone. Feel free to PM me like I did for you, that helped me a lot. (((hugs)))
