I know this will be moved to the support area soon, but I wanted to thank everyone for their healing vibes, prayers and thoughts for my girl Hershey over the last 2 months.

After coming back from Horners and then fighting headtilt, she finally quit eating and drinking all together last Wed. night. Wouldn't even swallow forced feedings, just drop it out and she'd lost so much weight. She wasn't sitting hunched or like she was in pain, she just didn't want it. Her eyes were losing their spunk and you could tell she had pretty much made her own decision.

We made our last trip together to the vet Friday where Dr. Erving agreed and we let her pass quietly. This is so very hard because Hershey was 'my' bunny and everything perfect about bunnydom. I will miss her bossy sassing and even the bites as she made her opinion quite clear. Her conquering of my house during the last two years is a highlight of my life.

A strange thought crossed my mind during that time that she was passing, that she was slipping from my hands into the hands of my late husband, almost like I heard him say, it's ok, I have her now. I say strange because Jim died in 2003 and I've lost other pets since then and not felt that, but there have been lots of weird things that have happened to make me think he's watching over us.  So now I figure he's at the Rainbow Bridge  playing with all our buns and watching out for Simba and his lovely Hershey once more.

Bunnyslave vibes are the strongest kind, thanks for all you gave us.

Binky Free my beautiful Hershey, Kathy

So sorry to hear about Hershey.  But you gave Hershey and Simba  a wonderful and loving home where many others would have overlooked them because of their age.  And in the end you pet Hershey's needs before your own needs and did the kindest thing an owner can do- even though it is one of the hardest things to do.

What a sweet tribute to Hershey. Hershey was so lucky to go into such a loving home. I think she was a special little rabbit.

Hugs to you Kathy.

I am so sad to read this news. I have been hoping that sweet Hershey would get well but it was not to be. She is whole now and with your hubby and Simba doing binkies over the bridge, happy again.

OK, now I'm crying too.  I dread the day anything happens to my 2 bunz and cat.  I am very sorry for your loss and hope your other bun is doing OK.  My brother had a bunny, Phineaus that passed away at about 3 1/2 (cancer) and when I told my great niece Karley who was 4 at the time, she just looked up at me and said, "I think Phineaus is up in heaven sitting on Aunt Tami's lap right next to the angels"!  Tami was my best friend that I knew since birth and she passed in 2004 of colon cancer and was Karley's godmother.  She also left behind twin 7 year old boys...very sad.  Every time I walk past Phin's grave in our back yard I picture him hangin' out with Tami & it calms me.  I have to believe in things like that to get through tough times!  Binky free and remember to take care of yourself too.

((((((((((Kathy))))))))))) I am so sorry to hear about your dear Hershey she did put up a brave fight I belive she is in heaven now with your late husband and Simba .At least she is no longer suffering. The loss of a pet is very hard as they are a part of your family and your heart. A year ago i lost my dear Otis the most wonderful beautiful dog ever, he was very special to me and my family and there are times when i still cry for him .Healing takes time but the hurt will go and be replaced with fond momeries. Take care of yourself and hang in there i know that is what Hershy would want for Mommy to be happy .

  Hershey certainly is special. I have a soft spot for her.  I'm so sad she's gone and sad for you Kathy....yet I'm thankful too that you and your vet recognised the moment when she asked to go. From what you've posted lately, you and the vet certainly gave her the best of care.   Had you sort of been preparing for this since Simba passed?   Did your husband know Hershey and Simba when he was alive?  It's must be comforting to feel his presence at this time.

{{{HUGS}}}   *Binky Free Darling Hershey!*  Kathy, please continue to share pictures and stories of Hershey & Simba.

edit: Kathy, I found a pic of her you once posted. Do you mind if I re-post it here?

I am so sad for you. Even though i am very new here, I was pulling for her and anxiously awaited updates. I will miss reading about her as I learned a lot about bunny health and care through your posts. Sweet, pretty, bunny. You did a fantastic job of observing and listening to her, too. (((hugs)))

Kathy, I am so saddened to hear that Hershey has left for the Bridge. And yet, even with this heartbreak, to know that you could sense the passing of your dear bun into the waiting arms of your beloved, and that she is reunited with dear little Simba...I think that is a tremendous gift that you will always carry in your heart and no one can ever take it from you.
I have felt, when losing some wonderful furry friends, their spirits pass through me on their way to the beauty of wherever this part of their journey takes them. It gives me hope that, although many ascribe that animals are deprived of a soul, that this is the joy that we will attend in our own time when we cross over...the waiting welcome of all our past loves in life.
Bless you for being so loving to this dear little bunny. ((((((((((((((Kathy)))))))))))))) May the happier days of Hershey's life come back to you to help wipe away the tears that must at this very moment be falling. Like the rain, may they wash away, one by one, the sadness you now feel, and leave peace and hope in their place.

Binky free, dear Hershey! We will miss you, little one! (((((((((((((Hershey))))))))))))))))))))

Thank you for your kind words, I can't tell you how comforting it is to be able to share the loss of one of these little creatures with people that understand. Jim never met the bunnies, but he loved animals too. We got our first, Pringles, about 3 years after his death and they just kinda multiplied from there until we had 6. I am so very glad to have Dr. Ervin to take the bunnies too because she's so into taking care of the whole bunny, body and spirit.

I guess I love them because they remind me a lot of Jim, a kind and gentle soul himself. They teach us to love them for what individuals they are and for as long or short a time as we are allowed to have their company. I have been worried about her since I lost Simba, he was a bit younger than Hershey.

I will miss my ferocious little dynamo but I know she's glad to be with Simba

I'm so sorry for the loss of Hershey. What a loving life she had here and it sounds like love was also waiting for her on the other side. What a comforting thing to have happen. (even though I know the "missing" can still hurt) HUGS to you!

Binky Free Hershey!
