tuna lived with my boyfriend because im not allowed to have pets where i live. he was our baby, although he fought my boyfriend regularly for my attention. i was the only human that he fully bonded with. we rescued him when he was sooo tiny and boney. he wouldnt eat or drink. i nursed him to good health and he grew up to be a very big boy.
i used to visit tuna regularly (at least a few times a week) however this last month has been very busy for me, and im so sad to say that i havent been able to see him for the last two weeks.
i cant help but be filled with regret and guilt. i feel like maybe i could have prevented his death if would have been able to check on him. maybe i would have seen a warning sign that my boyfriend couldnt recognize. he was always taken care of- his bunny "apartment" took up a good portion of my boyfriends room, he was always fed, had water, and greens. triend to keep him entertained as much as i could,
he was found inside of his cardboard box that he loved to chew on....
i am devastated and shocked.
we had his funeral lastnight in the rain. he was buried in the backyard all wrapped up with his favorite baby toy and a pink tulip. he is missed and always will be.
rest in peace my little baby. we love you forever.
I'm so sorry you've lost your little one tunasmomma. It sounds like he had a wonderful life with the two of you and he knew he was loved. It's so hard to lose them no matter what the age and so sweet to have his funeral despite the rain. Be gentle with yourself you are a good bunny parents.

Bunnies are so fragile and they can hide illness so well he may not have given any signs. I came home to find one of mine had passed away in his sleep awhile back. It's always a shock.
