Hi everyone
i'm new to the forum but i was hoping someone could help.

i had two 5 year old giant loop's, unfortunatly Smokie passed away last weekend and has left her forever mate Nanna behind. Nanna is blind and seems to be taking it really badly.
i did everything to the book i left nanna to say her goodbyes (as hard as it was to see nanna groaming smokie i still sat through it with her. i have been giving her lots of cuddle and attention to help her but she seems to be getting worse.
Nanna and Smokie were both rescue bunnies that i rehomed from a gentlemen that no longer wanted them. i rehabilited both of them to be loving again but now Nanna is reverting to her old ways.
What can i do?

i don't dare bond her with another bunny as she is so old and i fear i may lose her soon too, but i hate to see her like this.


please help

I am so sorry that you have lost Smokie :(

I know larger bunnies don't live as long, but it is possible that Nanna could still have a couple of years in her so bonding again may still be an option :)

Maybe think about bonding her with an older bun? My Blue pined for about 2-3 weeks after we lost Ollie....it was heartbreaking to watch. For the first couple of days I slept on the kitchen floor with him :cry:
