And Then He Was Gone.
Our sweet Johnny Cash the bunny is gone.
I wish I could tell you we released him, healthy and strong back into the wild. Instead we found him cold and still in his cage this morning. He had been super cuddly yesterday, and The Mister said this morning he seemed a little lethargic to him. He ate like a pro yesterday - but it was also the day we attempted to introduce solids (clover). I don't know if it was too soon, or too much - I'm just sick with worry that something that we did caused him to suffer. He was such a sweet little guy. We have to break it to Mooch when she gets home from school today.
Rest in peace, Johnny Cash the bunny. Our family loved you and I hope you're passing wasn't too painful. I hope you know that we will never forget you, and that you've inspired me to never shoo another rabbit out of our garden. I will miss your wiggly nose kisses, the feeling of you cuddling up to me to be fed, and even you jumping all the way up to my shoulder to be Pirate Parrot Bunny. I hope that we gave you some comfort.
