Poorly Bunny


Spare a few thoughts for Pumpkin rabbit today, the poor mite is still very poorly, but has picked up quite a bit according to the vet. She has a horrid bacterial infection that's affected her gut and her lungs, and has had a stroke on top of that. We're picking her up tomorrow, so I'll be nursing her at home then. Poor thing, she's still a young rabbit too.

Awww... that's so sad. Little sweety. Did the vet say she can recover to normal even with the stroke?

Thinking good thoughts for her.

Unknown at this stage, Leah. Well, find out more when we collect her tomorrow. She's been staying with our rather splendid vet, who has personally taken her home to nurse her the last two nights. It's likely that I'm going to have to help feed her as she's struggling with eating still.

Aw no, poor bunny! And she's so cute and has such a cute name! Hope she's okay, Madelynne. I almost commented yesterday when you said she just fell out of the hutch, cos that's the saddest image ever.

Aw, poor Pumpkin! Sending every good thought that she pulls through and returns to full health. Being someone who dotes on her own pets, I know how upsetting it is when they're poorly.

Give her a gentle stroke for me.

Oh no, it seems so wrong for a bunny to be suffering at this time of year. I really hope she recovers soon - she's gorgeous.

Oh, I so hope the bunny gets better. Poor cute little baby. I send all my well wishes.
