    You see this so often with rescue stories, Liz at Rainbow Rabbits use to experience it a lot. Somehow they must live on their nerves, on adrenaline, having to put effort into surviving... then when they get to relax and live the a much more appropriate life, they just let go. It's so hard when it happens but I'm sure your friend did nothing wrong. .. he just found peace.
    Aww yeah this would make so much sense Thank you xx

    So heartbreaking. I can't help crying for Jack. Life seems so cruel. Sending hugs to your friend and her family and you too. Xxx

    How sad to lose him so soon after finding him a lovely home.

    How beautiful that his last days were happy and relaxed.

    Rip Jack.

    Sorry I wasn't around to read this thread originally, but I'm glad you made sure Jack had real love and care at the end of his life. Thinking of you and your friend at this sad time. x

    I managed to find him the most perfect home with my friend. We found the perfect set up for sale, got it dismantled, paid to have it delivered to her house then my dad spent 2 days building it and adding a floor so it was safe and secure. Jack moved in 13 days ago. I was so so happy for him, he had so much room and he absolutely loved it. Not only that but he had the best new family ever. In such a short space of time they got so attached and it was only last night I was telling my friend how I couldn't have found him a better home. We had plans to get him a buddy too but he couldn't be neutered for health reasons so we were letting him settle in before attempting to bond him with a spayed girl.

    Anyway I've just had the most heartbreaking call from my friend, she is in absolute bits. Went to give Jack his breakfast and found him lying dead in his bedroom area. She keeps saying she doesn't know what she did wrong but I honestly don't think she did anything wrong. She's driving herself crazy 'did I not feed him enough, did I feed him too much, did he run into the door'. Jack was an old boy, over 10 years. He finally had his perfect home. He had the most amount of attention in this last week than he has ever had in his whole life, even more than I could give him when he was with me. He may have only been there for 13 days but I'm sure he was the happiest he's ever been.

    RIP Jack you beautiful rabbit, I'm happy I finally got you the home you deserved even if not for long.

    I just read this whole thread from the start, utterly devastating It's hard not to feel very angry towards the original owners. I'm sure that this scenario is only all too common - a rabbit forgotten at the bottom of the garden for a lifetime. And 99% of the time, the owners get away with the neglect with no consequences. There need to be stricter laws in place, but how we can make that happen I don't know.

    You and your friend are amazing people though, you both have such huge hearts, and even 13 days of bliss must have made Jack feel like he was finally loved and cared for <3 That setup is amazing, perhaps eventually your friend will rehome a couple of rescue buns in honour of Jack? Sending lots of love <3

    I really do hope she will do but I know this has absolutely crushed her and she said it puts her off wanting pets. She has so much love to give though and the most perfect set up.

    I did have Jack living with me since November so at least he's had love since then but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that we finally had him moved into the perfect place. Xx
