He died this morning. I came out of the bedroom to start bunny breakfast and saw Raisin in his pen, on his side. I wrapped him in a blanket and put his stuffed bunny behind him for support. Told him he was a good boy and it's ok. I sat with him for a few minutes. Got up to call the vet and start bunny breakfast again, I think that is when he died.
He was one of the best bunnies we ever had. To me, he was also the prettiest, he was a Silver Martin.
He was bonded with Jasper, who died last year of something similar. Both were super sweet and mild mannered buns. They were not afraid of anything. I kept them (they did start off as fosters) because I knew they were special and I was afraid if they were adopted they would be separated.
They came to the shelter a mess. Skinny, dirty and stinky. They lived in our dining room with lots of light and space to play.
We did everything we could over the last few months to get Raisin better. I took him to 3 vets, even spoke to a 4th in California.
I hope he is with Jasper now. We love you Raisin Man. I love you to the moon and back.
