    Angel, Dawn and Lightning will be 10 on 3rd June. Dopey 1 will be 11 on 25th June. Autumn will be 8 at the end of June. Wish and Flame just turned seven.

    The only one I've had older than Angel, Dawn, Lightning and Dopey 1 was Tubby, who was two months short of 12. And he was before my time of knowing about bunnies, so his diet and lifestyle is not what I look back and wish it had been. It's not how it would be if he was alive now.

    Benny is my only previous rabbit, he was just 6 years 10 months when he died. I got him in 1997 - the advice available for rabbit care back then was a lot less than it is now! He was vaccinated and neutered but his hutch wasn't to today's standards and he didn't have 24/7 access to a run. Wish I had him now to give him a better life, he was a lovely bun.

    Oldest of my current rabbits is 2 years! 2 brothers from a litter surrendered to the rescue so both the same age although exact date of birth unknown. Millie was found as a stray last year so again age unknown but approx 1 year old now.

    My first mini lop buck lived to 11 years and 1 month. I had to have him pts at the end, but I still say 'hello' to him every morning as he is buried just by my front door.

    Her eyes were cloudy, so we never knew quite what she could see, she had regular bouts of not eating, but would be tempted with her fave kale, would pass a big ceacal lump, and would be fine again. I used to sit in the vets holding a bag of fluids going into her and she may have had a course of Baytril which was pretty much all that was on offer for anything presented at the vets whatever the symptom! We were regulars at the vets with that! She wasn't spayed, was never vaccinated we just didnt really know the importance back then

    I saw a huge hutch in the pet shop and made it my mission to buy it for her - 5ft! It was like the rolls Royce of hutches compared to anything I had ever seen and was thrilled when I could buy it for her, 120 which back then was a lot of money!

    How things have changed since back then! I never knew how she made it so long against all the odds stacked against her. She was a real sweet little bunny
    Patch sounds like a truly inspirational bun

    I think this about my childhood bun . In fact I'd like all my bridge buns back to change what I could. You can return to this thread in 18 years & show off elderly Millie & the ancient brothers. Lots of happy years ahead for you & them I hope

    More luck than me. 9-13 is great for a giant bun.
