Sad news ...

Yesterday Lilly, who was 8 years old. Passed away in my arms after a trip to the vets.
The vet told me her heart was fine & that she had a respiratory infection. He gave her some injections & we booked back in for Thursday. I left feeling quite hopeful after I had prepared myself for the vet to tell me she didn't have long left. He did say he hoped we had caught it in time & felt she should have every chance to fight it. Sadly when we got home she just laid in her cage, not her usual bounce. So I picked her up & sat her on my knee. She cuddled into me whilst trying to breathe & I just storked her, sobbed & pleaded with her to keep fighting. The poor little love died cuddled in her mummy's arms.
I took Lilly to my Mum's house & we have buried her in Mum's garden & I bought a mini Lilly plant for her.

For those who don't know Lilly's story. Nearly 2 years ago to the day I was asked if I could take in a rabbit who had been taken to the vets to be put down because she was severely over weight & had such bad fly strike her back end was a state, no fur & just mess all over.
I said I would & I picked her up brought her home & spent 2 weeks struggling to give her antibiotics via syringe in her mouth & put cream on all her sore bits. My vet told me he's neve known a rabbit live through fly strike. As you can see from the picture above she made a full recovery & although she wasn't my biggest fan for a while she grew to love me & grew all her fur back.

She was so cuddly & would lay in my arms like a baby. She would be quiet round people, but when she thought you weren't looking would be a lunatic especially in her run.

Night night my little old lady...mummy loves you & misses you.
Be safe & free now bright eyes

I understand how it feels to lose them..... The thought of not getting attached to any other being in future gets stronger..... I hate those moments, it tends to get difficult to get over it.... Slightest of the thoughts or situations makes u burst out..... I lost my Bruno (German Shepherd) & now we don't have any more pets.... :-(

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
