    2 yrs ago december i lost my baby. I too had not planned on being a bun mum. I came from work to find a blood soaked box one december evening. Inside a bunny. A rare breed i was to find out. I rushed to our vet. Police got involved. She had a tag identifying ownership. Rabbit rescue here had no room. So after six hrs of surgery a day at the vet i brought her home. Drip and all. My husband and i decided we could home and love her. We went to court when her owners were prosecuted. Luna belle we named her. Got her a companion. We had her for nine and a half yrs. Lost her to ecu niculi. She passed in our arms her hubby right with and us.

    Thats awful some people just don't deserve to have pets they should do time like they would if they treated a human like that , i hope the pain gets better as i struggle particularly on the mornings when she would wake me up , the vets rang yesterday tea time , to say her ashes were back , they were not long closing but i asked them if they could hold on for 10 mins , so i could pick them up , bless them they did , because , i know it mind sound daft to some , just the thought of her in the vet office all night by herself was too much , so quickly got a taxi down as i dont have transport , and got her , brought her home , and she is in the sitting room , she will be with us in the house for a while as we are burying her in the garden next to my dog , but i am not ready for that yet , i hope you are okay , xxx

    i just wanted to share this , i have a very active mind so i don't know if its just my brain , but 2 days after we got Tilikums ashes back , i had a dream about her , she was standing on my bed , and when i sat up she had the most beautiful diamond looking wings attached to her back , i looked behind her but could not see how they were attached , it was like they were floating on her , she never spoke , but i could understand what she was thinking , just looking into her eyes , and i swear she said this is not the end , i have just gone on ahead of you , but i will be here waiting , so don't worry nothing has changed . i wanted to pick her up and cuddle her but i woke up , after sobbing for a couple of hours , i tried to go back to sleep to recapture the dream but it never came , active imagination or not , i am clinging to that dream , i hope you can find a wee bit of comfort xxxx

    i have had the most horrendous night , its exactly 3 weeks today , 8.36 am to be precise , my baby had to be put to sleep , i had a massive panic attack during the night , cannot stop feeling guilty at not been there , she was taken in the vet hospital on the Monday tea time , and i was on the phone every hour , but each time they said she is heavily sedated and there is no change , i could not sleep that night and rang at 5.30 am and the nurse said the vet would be doing her rounds between 8 and 10 am so just to hold on she will get in touch , when she rang at 8.30 am i knew in her voice before she said , that tilikum had rapidly deteriorated , and could i get to the hospital soon , i said yes but it will be over a hour , the hospital is in the next city to ours , so its a long journey , and she said we will try to get her to hang on , i said what do you mean , she said well she has started to suffer , i was hysterical , , sobbing as i type this , , ,, i asked her advice and she said personally i would not wait so i made the decision on the spot for them to euthanise her straight away , i put the phone down , and she rang back within minutes and said its done , it was barely 4 seconds she just sighed and that was it , she said she was a very sick bunny , and she was ready to go , but the guilt i feel is enormous , i blame myself for not going , although i would not want her in any sort of pain not even for a minute , but the thought of not being there is eating away at me , my head is spinning , if she was in pain would it have been worth the risk just to be with her one last time , i am going to have to deal with this for the rest of my life , just really struggling today , xxxx
