Marshy was a young bun only about a year old this morning I found him dead in his pen .I dont understand what happened to him he was acting fine last night eating and doing the bun thing .The only thing I have noticed wrong with him was last two days he was a bit jumpy but not overly jumpy .My poor baby what did I miss Itook good care of him everyday he had food clean freash water and love .I will miss him very much Ill miss his excited binkys when I let him out for the day to run and the way he would tell me hey mom i want out if i wasnt fast enough . I will miss noce bumps and snuggles in front of the tv . Binky Free little man
Thank you all for your kind word I know the pain of his loss will lessen with time but it helps to have a kind world from people that understand .Speaking of ,my sweet husband just came home with a bun, sigh. He wanted to make it all better sweet man .I didnt want another bun so soon but the fact that he tryed to make the hurt go away for me and the kids is increadably sweet plus he told me he couldnt stand the thought of not having a bun running around the house .So for the past 3 hours i have been completly cleaning with vinager/water and rebuiding the rabbit pad so new bun can call it home. He seems friendly and happy not to be in that feed store tiny cage but it will take a few days for him to ajust to us I cant help but feel guilty that we replaced marshy but this bun needs love too .Thank you again for the sweet words and reminding me that Marshy is happy over that rainbow bridge having all the bananas he can eat .(((((hugs back ))))
Thanks guys you are right giving a home to a needy bun wont take away from Marshmallow but honer him thanks for reminding me of that it realy helps .Yes Mirbear i belive you are right it is a sweet thing for hubby to do bringing home a new furbaby and a way for him to cope with Marshys loss he was increadably close to Marshmallow shocking to see such a big tough man fall in love with a fluffy cute bunbun but he did right away and they would lay on the floor and cuddle everyday too .New bun is settling in nicely I made sure to clean the cage well and have just let him explore it he like to rearrange things to his liking lol ill sit quietly beside him petting his nose and speaking softly every now and then he is still nervouse about us but seems to like the pets as long as we move very s l o w l y .Ill post pics and updates soon
