Louie got me a bunny on my birthday (was named Bugs) but it died 2 weeks after. I got so sad and depressed so we got another one and named it Cheese! She was the most friendly, affectionate, and playful bunny I ever had. Unfortunately she left after only a week :( My cousins and sister know how sad I was when my very first bunny died. I think I was in 8th grade then, when I got one for a Science exhibit -pets edition. Since then, I always had a heart for bunnies. They are too cute to resist! They are low maintenance, just perfect for those lazy, and yet always on-the-go pet owner’s like me.
Anyway, we could not get over the death of our furry friend so we got another one that’s exactly like her! There is no doubt, actually, that they were sibs. They look so much alike (but we determine who’s who by the nose color!) and we got them from the same seller (taken on the same bunny cage) so, yeah, definitely sibs! It’s a boy this time and guess what we named him: Cheese II (the 2nd)! Hehe. It was a clever idea that we had, but who said that we stopped from there? We got another bunny and named it Bugs II. Hahaha. Pero it died just last Tuesday so what’s left of us is baby Cheesy. Cheese was as friendly and playful as his bunny sister. He’s so cute, he even made it to my cover photo on Facebook
Unfortunately, we didn’t know the playfulness will fade soon after he ate some expired pellets. :( From now on, I will never buy pellets at some local pet shop, ever! Poor Bugs II, I think that caused his death. Huhu sorry baby Bugs :( Anyway, we decided to take Cheese to the vet the next day after Bugs (II) died.
Here’s Cheese at the vet
He was so weak! :( Poor baby Cheesy. Good thing we brought him to the right vet clinic! Goodness, I forgot the name. Hahaha. It’s located somewhere in West Ave., QC. Will try to hunt for it the next time. Some vet clinics specialize only in dogs and cats so be sure to find one that can accommodate your little furry babies as well. It’s been 5 days since we took him to the vet and he’s okay now, thank you Doc Villegas! He gave Cheese antibiotics, electrolytes, and a topical ointment to treat his now fungus-infected feet. I love Cheese so much, he’s almost like a real baby to me. I hope he grows to be a happy, healthy bunn bunn.
Also, all the research I made brought me to very informative sites.. All about bunnies! I hope all the bunny lovers out there would find this useful.
