It's been a while a I know - do you remember me? Layla's mom Well, today I went into a pet store and I bent down to talk to the bunnies, and he did a bunny flop and it really made me so happy inside! And so I thought i would write again.
We did an autopsy on Layla. Turns out she had pasturella. It's a baaad bacteria. And hers was in her lungs. It created a pocket around th ebacteria so no amount of anti-biotics would've helped. Supposedly she got it waaaay before she came to us. It's also highly contagious. She was a carrier her whole life, with no symptoms, but the stress of the spay operation lowered her imune system and wham! The bacteria won.
Our vet says that it is quite unusual to find it like that, cos it's usually in lab bunnies...
And so, I guess it helps to know that it wasn't because of us, and that her time her was limited. But i miss her!
I wanted another bunny, but somehow, a cat was delivered to us. And so we have a new addition, Puck, a crazy cat. it's hard to bond with him, he's so different from a rabbit. And he has major aggression issues...i'm trying though...any good cat forums around?
I miss layla, and I miss having a bun...they really are special creaures.
