I lost Bagheera about 3 weeks ago.I called Rachel, Frankies mom, as soon as I found him. It went to voicemail and I think I left the most disgusting snot filled, crying, sobbing, message you have ever heard.

It's kinda funny. I called her before I even told my parents or boyfriend. And she's just a BB friend that I've grown to be friends with.

I don't know what happened. He was just found gone. Weeks before I was cocerned in the quartet he was getting snubbed on food but not enough to die over.... I have no idea why he passed.

It makes me so sad. I put off posting now for awhile but posting on griffins thread made me cry and I just had to write about losing my baby Bagheera.

My stinky bink brothers are no longer. Lion still has his girls but he was really bonded with Baggy and it breaks my heart to lose such a young bunny. Who else am I going to call my stinky binks!?!?!? Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it upsets me so much!!!!!

This video will always cheer my up when I think that he is gone though. ugh

I miss my stinky bink brothers so much. I've come so far this past year with getting over depression with my grandmothers death and stopping my drinking, then losing 40 lbs amd getting back to 125lbs and being so happy with myself, and this just brings all the sadness back. It's not like I am going back where I was ever again, but it's almost like a slap in the face. like NO, you got too happy too soon, back to being sad Lindsey!!!!

I just can hope he is at peace wherever my little bunny is and know that I miss him so much. I haven't ever lost a rabbit before so it's been hard on me keeping it to myself.

Oh Lin I am so sorry to read this! My daughter often speaks of how cute and silly she thought Baggy was. She'll be so sad to hear he's gone to the bridge. I'm sorry too that I haven't been around more myself. I hope you can feel the hugs I'm sending you.
Our bunnies can hide illness so well. Please don't blame yourself. I an sure he is watching you from the Rainbow. You'll be in my prayers. I can't answer PM's with my phone, (PC crashed), but please know you can message me if you want an ear to bend.
Binky free, dear Bagheera. We'll all miss you.

Lint I'm so sorry to hear you lost Bagheera. I know how much you adored him.
MM's right about not being able to know when a bunny is ill. It may be that he had something wrong that the others could sense, and he wasn't eating as much because of that. It's not anything you or they did or didn't do. Second guessing yourself is normal. It will pass.

I'm proud of you for not giving in too much to your grief after doing such great work this year. You've made wonderful progress, and it's normal to feel very sad without backsliding into a bad depression. Just hang in there, and use BB for comfort instead of food or drinks. We love you and the furbabies! {{{{{{{{{{{Hugs}}}}}}}}}

Now go play with that adorable chameleon.

It is so hard to lose them unexpectedly- I keep second guessing about Griffin. But somtimes even though you do everything right- diet, housing, care, etc- it does not matter and you lose them anyway.
I wish there was something I could say to make you feel better- but eventually you will be able to remember the happy times without dwelling on the grief of losing him. I keep reminding myself of that about Griffin.
My first reaction when I found Griff dead was to call my husband (he was at work) and he could not even understand what I was saying but he could tell I was freaking out and crying and I think he started to panic not knowing what was wrong since he could not understand me.
So even though it hurts a lot now- at least be comforted knowing Bagheera had a happy life even though it was short. And in the end- a happy house bunny life even if it is short has to beat a ignored, cramped hutch bunny life no matter the length.

 I'm am so sorry.  I know this is so difficult.  Like the others have said, don't blame yourself.  Your bunnies were very loved and sometimes these things just happen.  Time does help soften the sharper stabs and good memories can come in without being accompanied by so much pain, but it can take time.  Jack died in May, and I still have to swallow hard and hold back the tears to get through talking about him, but the memories are so wonderful and the good stuff does start to comfort and surround the sadness over time.  

I'm glad you came here as you know....we know how this hurts and can be here to support you.  

Binky Free Bagheera!  

And hugs and healing vibes to you Lin.

Thank you, I know he hid it well, I would have known right away if something was wrong, but my quartet looked so great and happy I didn't see anything wrong. It's easier said than done to not blame myself. My poor boyfriend just got a crying spell from me last night about it. He's a highway patrol that I wrote my number on his cup at starbucks and we started dating real nice guy,....hopefully doesnt turn out like the rest. Anyways....I've been leery because he doesn't have any pets and I didn't want him to hear me histarical over my rabbits because our relationship is new....well too late....after hearing about Griffin and then unloading about Bagheera I blerted it all out. He was very supportive. I just always see the worst in people these days it seems.

Rachel I just want to say thank you again for talking to me that night. It meant a lot to me and I'll never forget it. It just shows how much BB is such a great community to form friendships with people we wouldn't have ever met otherwise. Thank you. xoxo

I'm so sorry that you lost Bagheera. I had seen your post about him on FB. He was such a cute little guy and will be missed by all of us here at BB as well. Who knows, maybe he wanted to save you the heartache of dealing with a sick bunny.
