I used to post on this forum some months ago, I can't even remember how long ago. It seems like a long time ago. Well, I had a death in the family and got busy with that, and then I accidentally killed my friend's daughter's rabbit and it is still a very painful incident for me to think about, so I stopped talking to other rabbit people for a while, but I think it's time for me to sort of come back to the community.
Cleaning his cage after his death, we found an exposed pointy piece in the rabbit's cage that we think may have hurt him. I was showing my friend's daughter how to pick up the bunny, and we hadn't discovered his injury yet. When I grabbed him, I touched an owie and it must have hurt him and he bit me VERY hard. This was a sweet-tempered rabbit that I'd petted before, and I wasn't expecting it. I dropped him =( it wasn't a very long fall but he clearly hurt himself, we think he broke his back.
They didn't have him long, so he could have had other issues, too, maybe, but he never behaved that way before when my friend's husband held him before.
I don't really like to talk about it very much, this is the first time I'd typed it out in it's entirity. RIP, Snickers... =( You were a good rabbit.
