I am so sorry to hear about your loss :-( I understand how tough it is. My buns went in for their neuter today and two came home and are doing well. Baby our female will be spayed in the morning and be home tomorrow. so I am still sweating on that.
Binky free Mathias... My heart has joined the thousand, for my friend stopped running today...

Binky free, Mathias. I'm sorry for your loss, Svandis. Sometimes the animals we love so much have to cross the Rainbow Bridge sooner than we'd like.

I had my bunny in for his routine molar trim today and my appointment got delayed an hour for an emergency surgery on a ferret. The ferret had a fever, wasn't eating, and the owner thought it had eaten a foreign object. They did surgery (with gas anesthesia) and found nothing out of the ordinary. When recovering from the operation about 10 minutes later, the ferret went into shock and passed away. The vets did everything they could but could not revive it. It was heartbreaking. Please don't blame yourself for what happened to your little bunny. Hugs to you and Bosse.

I'm so sorry to hear. Sometimes they just give out on us and leave us too soon. I'm sure Bosse is very happy you are being there for him during his grieving period. I bet he can tell you are sad, but I wouldn't worry about that upsetting him. He may not know what sad is, but knows you are different than normal. I hope you both lean on each other while you recover your loss. *hugs* and thinking of you both.

I, too, am very sorry for your loss It's never easy having to go through this and I just love that pic of Mathias in that little bed, like a lamb<3
Thoughts and prayers out to you and you just keep loving on Bosse, if he doesn't want it, he will hop away. I'm glad to hear Bosse is doing well, I'm thinking being there for him during this time would be a great bonding time between the both of you. **hugs**

Thanks for all the comments guys <3
I'm keeping close to bosse, but he only comes over to me whenever i have treats for him, and then runs away from me again. I think I'm gonna start a topic on HOUSE RABBIT Q & A, asking for tips on how to bond with a timid bunny. The breeder I bought him and Mathias from told me that when he was still at the her farm, she had let him out in the outdoor enclosure, but she had forgotten that her flemish giant was out there, and Bosse god attacked and bitten hard in the neck. So I think that might be why he is so often scared/timid.

@Bullrider, it's great that she made it, and I understand that you are worrying, but I'm sure she will do great. The worst is over by now. Thanks for the update! And feel free to update further on her eating etc

Bosse has been doing a few binkies and zooms today, and i think he is doing better. Had some bonding time with him on the floor for a few hours today while I was getting some school work done

haha as I'm writing this Bosse started doing all these crazy zooms and binkies, running all over the living room!

But he has these.. "phases"? like he is in a trance, where he will just sit in his cage, in one place and is super aware of everything, and he seems a little stressed out when he is in this phase. It is only a few times a day, and he hasn't done it before, only since mathias died..

It could be that he's missing Mathias - or it could just be normal zone out behavior. My Roscoe will do the same thing - he just did it this morning after a half hour of binkies. He was just sitting staring and zoning out. He wouldn't respond to my voice or anything - or even the shaking of his treat cup. So I got a piece of red leaf lettuce and waved it under his nose a few times, and he finally came out of it and took a bite - and then almost shook himself and started to eat in earnest.

I kind of think of it as bunny daydreaming.....

Theresa - That sounds like what Bosse has been doing Thank you. Guess I'm just being a bit paranoid, analyzing his behavior to look for any signs of depression or sadness.

Bumble Fly - thank you so much <3
