Today has been a tough day,
After a week and a half of sadness, hopes, let downs, fears and a rollercoaster of emotions, it breaks my heart to say that my dearest pet Alfie has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Unsure of her recovery, after the events of last night I just knew in my heart that we had reached the end. Alfie was put to sleep forever at 11:20 this morning. I will miss her dearly and am extremely upset.
Tips on moving on from the loss of a bunny friend?
I am so sorry, it must have been so difficult to make that decision but you did what was best for her Alfie looks like she was very sweet. All I can really say is that at first it's going to hurt really bad but after a while it starts to get better, never goes away though. Alfie is happy and binkying free
What a cute bunny Alfie was. I know it has been a torturous and heartbreaking week for you. Nothing more painful then not being able to help our bunnies when they are sick. Alfie is at peace now. And I ditto what the others have said. This just hurts and you will have to go through a mourning process. I know it can be even rougher IF you don't have people around you that will understand how deeply this can hurt, so just reach out to people who do understand and will help support you.
In time, the sharpness of the loss diminishes, and the good things you can take in and remember without it being paired with intense pain. I always feel the loss and I still get upset about Jack, but the pain isn't stuck in my heart every day.
It will get better - but in the meantime, give yourself permission to just grieve, and make sure to get sleep and keep yourself hydrated. The pain of loss will affect you physically, so be kind to yourself.
