    He is doing fine though he has damaged one of the apple trees and ate two peppar plants down to the soil, he really is a mischief.

    Hi I have not been on for some time but have decided to start chatting again. Our rabbit Mason died last Friday or to be more truthful he had to be put to sleep and he was only four and a half years old. I am finding it hard to get over it and miss him as much as any cat I have lost in the past. I will come on again and give some details about what happened but for the moment I cannot say anymore as I am too upset.

    On the Wednesday night Mason was okay and was eating and running around as normal and at about midnight he went into his pen himself which he sometimes did while other times he would not. The next morning I was up about eight and opened his door for him to come out and then left him while I made a cup of tea, but later on after I had gone to watch the tennis I came through into the back room again and noticed he had not moved. I lifted him out and put him on the floor but realized that his back legs were not moving and his front legs just slid as if he was doing the splits, so I put him in his bed which is a cat bed and got the wife up who came downstairs and after looking at him said we should take him to the vets. When we got there the vet had a look at him and put him on the floor but he still did not move so suggested giving him an xray and putting him on antibiotics to see if he improved. We phoned later and they told us their was no change and to give it 24 hours before deciding what to do. The next day we were told that their was no improvement and also he had not eaten anything and that the xray showed no broken bones so they did not know what was wrong with him and that it could be a viral infection or possibly mites. He had all the inoculations he was supposed to have and was up to date with them and a more senior vet said it would be kinder to let him go. My wife and I went to say our final goodbyes later that afternoon and he was then put to sleep though we did not watch that so he was alive when I last saw him. From being perfectly alright on the Wednesday night we were saying goodbye a day and a half later. Have any of you any idea what could have been wrong, we could have had an MRI for him but it would cost about 2 thousand pounds and even then their was no certainty that he could have been saved.
