    Hi everyone. I have to take Chiclet, my bunny, to the vet in an hour. Please think about her! I'm quite worried. She's lost more weight than I realized even though she eats and eats. Up until yesterday she was still quite active but she's not now. :( I really hope she's going to be ok. I love her lots. She was my b-day present from Steve last year. She's not even a year yet!

    Cross your fingers. She's really, horribly skinny and I didn't notice until I picked her up yesterday.

    Thanks. I really worry about the bunnies. They are very senstive creatures and I've lost two in the last years. I really, really don't want that to happen again. :(

    I'll let you know as soon as I get back! Maybe she has worms. I wonder if she could get them. :confused: do rabbits get worms? She's not exposed to anything

    Awww, poor Chiclet! {{Hugs}}! I'm sure she'll be ok. But I have no idea if they get worms!! Do rabbits get cushings??!! Could be some sort of protien processing disorder?!! But i'm sure she'll be fine!!

    Bad news. She has an extremely large cancerous tumour. I've taken her home to die and she's laying next to me. The trip seems to have made her a lot worse. She can't hold herself up anymore and she won't even swallow the apple sauce I'm trying to feed her. My poor baby. I'm hoping that she's just exhausted and will sleep a bit and then I can get her to eat. The vet said she's not suffering though and I don't think so either. I'm weepy. :( She keeps trying to stand up but can't so I have her propped up against my leg so she's more upright.

    :(

    Thanks guys. She's gone now. :( I'm so sad. I was holding her though. I hope that helped. We buried her in the woods behing the house. It's really nice there. I may go back and put some stones on it so dogs can't dig her up. That's a fear of mine.

    I showed her body to the other two bunnies. My mom used to do that with our cats so that they understood what had happened. But they seemed to get REALLY upset about it. I think bunnies my be different because they are so 'pack' oriented. They both kept sniffing her and poking her like they wanted her to get up. And Mika tried to climb up on her. I had to take her away. She kept sticking her nose on Chiclet's eye. :( It distrubed me. And then Steve said that maybe I had told them that I had killed Chiclet! I hope that's not true!

    I am so sorry! :( :( Surely the others don't think you killed her (sounds just like something my James would say) They know how much you love them. I'm sure it did help to have you holding her, that's how I felt when we had Smokey put down. I had to be with him, it probably made you feel a lil' better too.

    Yeah. Although she had seizures before/as she was dying. :( I was trying to hold her still (gently) because it was quite violent.

    I don't know what the others think.

    AAAWW, I'm sorry (again) I know it's so hard losing them, any kind of animal. Well I am sure they don't think that, they prob. sensed something was wrong with her.
