My 2 year old rabbit Shadow recently passed on last week. I cannot get over his death, and I think it is my fault. We got him neutered a year ago so he should have lived longer. He had some matted fur, but my parents said that it was nothing. So I let it be, and several months passed by, then he died. I feel so guilty for his death, and I should have done something about his fur. He had had a perfect diet: timothy hay, pellets, a small portion of veggies once a week, and fresh water provided for him. His cage was cleaned daily. A week before he passed on, I noticed he was loosing weight. Me being stupid, thought he would gain back the weight easily. But he died, and now I'm not sure what to do. My heart is broken because I loved him so much and was sure I was taking care of him well. I thought he would stay with me much longer, and now I can't imagine life without him. This summer we purchased a young rabbit, and now I'm afraid that she will pass on too. We are taking her to the vet, sometime soon, so we can be sure that she's okay. I hope Shadow is in a better place. I just really miss him... =(
