I have just found this forum and thought I would join.
I did have two houserabbits Peter and Ebony, but sadly Ebony passed away at the vets on Friday. I miss her terribly so does Peter.
I have had Peter for two and a half years (I had Ebony for two years).

Both were unwanted childrens pets. I got Peter first and when I was offered Ebony I wasn't sure as Peter was so loving towards me and I didn't want that to change.

I can't believe how wrong I was and how much more content Peter was.

I am also 8 months pregnant due on 25th sept. so would like to see if I can find another companion for Peter as I am so aware that my time is about to become a bit limited.

well I better go and put Peter in his outside run as it's a lovely day.

Hiya and welcome Tracey :wave:

So sorry to hear about Ebony, it really hits you like a brick when a bunny dies, my heart goes out to both you and wee Peter. Was there an illness involved which caused her death?

But, as for a new friend for him, I have no DOUBT that there will be lots of offers soon!

Good luck with the baby!

Big hugs and enjoy Rabbits United :D

Hi Tracey and Peter - welcome to the forum :wave:

Thank you all for your welcomes and messages.

Ebony had what I call one of her off days where she wouldn't eat for a day on thursday last week normally the next day she would be fine and back to normal. But on Friday morning she was the same and when I had a look at her she had a very bloated tummy so I got her to the vets straight away. They x-rayed her and couldn't find any blockage but did manage to get some of the gas out. She was kept in at the vets then I had a phonecall Friday evening to say she had passed away.
They said she was just too poorly and gave up.

We have an animal rescue centre not far from here so I am planning a visit when I feel up to it.

I`m thinking when one of my darling passes away, I`m going to plant a tree or shrub where they are resting. Then I will have a place to go to and remember and cry me eyes out. Others haven`t had a place to plant a tree so I have suggested, ask if you can plant one in a park.

Congrats on your pregnancy. Looking forward to seeing your toes again!! :lol:

Somehow 'Peter' is always such a good and appropriate name for a boy rabbit! 'Peter Rabbit' just sounds so right!
