Poor old bunny...

Rocky seems to be dying. I can't afford to take him to a vet, so he'll live or die based on what care we can give here at home. He's an inbred dwarf with a severe malocclusion of his jaws, so he's always had to have his teeth trimmed, and my daughter suspects he's retarded but I never thought so. His nose was bitten off by the other male bunny when he went and stuck his nose up to the other bunny's cage. That is one of the reasons I hope to soon build new hutches... to get them further up off of the ground so that when one is exercising it can't stick it's nose into another's hutch and get bitten!

Sorry to hear about Rocky, seems like everyone is having pet problems lately and it's so wrong. I hope he pulls through.

Thanks... but it was too late. He passed away today. Poor little guy.

I don't know if I mentioned it, but a young bunny recently wandered into our lives and we took it in... I think it was God's way of easing the pain of losing Rocky.

Rocky's demise was pretty sudden... gonna have to keep a closer eye on the others!
