sad news and good news (..long)

Post by Angi Andrew » Sun, 01 Sep 2002 02:54:03



Hi all,
I'm sorry, I haven't been here for a while. And during this time quite a bit
happened: while we were on holiday for 3 weeks, our rabbits were with a good
friend who is very knowledgeable about rabbits. My friend asked me, whether
she could have our Cora (6 months) be neutered by her vet (with good
experiences about neutering female bunnies), because Momo was chasing her
quite a bit and had pulled out her fur. I agreed happily. Everything went
fine. But after more than a week after the surgery Cora suddenly sneezed a
lot more than usually (our vet had already checked Cora's heart once because
of her sneezing, and thought, the heart was o.k., and her sneezing was
stress or an allergy to hay) and made funny noises while breathing. My
friend took her to the vet and an Xray was made. It showed that she had a
lot of fluids in her heart. The vet did a drainage and kept Cora in. She was
o.k. the next day, but was still kept in. The following night she died...My
friend emailed me immediately...The vet was really surprised (not about
Cora's dying after the fluid in her heart, but about the fluid in the first
place) and had a postmortal examination done. But it wasn't a virus or
bacterias apparently. I must talk to our vet, because I didn't quite
understand everything the postmortem said. When we came back from our
holidays, Momo had already spent a week or so without his late, beloved
friend, but surrounded by my friend's rabbits. Several days later we got him
a new friend, a cute grey and white minilop. This time we chose a male
friend (still very young, because we knew that Momo then would accept him
straight away, which he did), because I'm really afraid that the neuterings
of our female (dwarf) bunnies somehow damaged their immunity systems,
together with several vaccinations. At the moment I tend to think: no more
vaccinations and only a neutering of a male rabbit, which seems to be much
less risky!! Pippin, our new little bunny, is cute, and very curious and
vivid. His fur is much thicker than Cora's (Cora's fur was very soft and
thin, and I wonder, whether that was a sign of her not being very resistent
to illnesses....). Although he is so cute, he can't evoke the same feelings
in me than I had for cute little Cora - yet! But he is ever so sweet and
Momo and he get on very well together (probably only for a little while yet,
then he'll have to be neutered). Thank you for reading my story - I just
wanted to tell you.

Angi,

I am very sorry about Cora.

I hope the new little friend for Momo will help all of you recover more
quickly from your loss.

Nona

Aww Angi - I'm so sorry about Cora! How terrible to have had it happen while
you were away. :-(

And poor Momo - having lost two friends in such a relatively short time must
be *** him as well - I'm glad that he has been able to find comfort with
little Pippin.

I hope that your et will be able to make some sense of the necropsy of
little Cora - and that you can find some closure as to what caused the heart
fluid.

Healing vibes to you,
Laurie, Jon, Rosie, Patches and from the bridge, Snowbelle (Cora! Little
One! What a pleasure to meet you here. I see you've found Flolli - and the
two of you have had many stories to share about that Momo! Yes, I did hear
about the newbun Momo's bringing along down there - you must have been a
very good friend for him to so readily accept another bun when you came
here. Hey Flolli - did you show Cora the binky ***? And I'm sure you
showed her my baby clover patch by now. Everybun from apr stops by for a
snack nearly every day...it amazes us all how there's always enough for
everybun no matter how many of us there are!)

Thank you all very much for your messages!! (I saw them only now, because we
were out of internet for 1 1/2 days). Jill, Cora was only born in January
2002, so she was only about 6 months old, when she died. Laurie, I loved
your sweet description of the Rainbow Bridge, where Cora met Snowbelle and
all the others! I have to go to our vet withn the next couple of weeks to
have our cats having their annual injections. Then I'll show the report
about Cora's heart to our vet. I'm really glad that Cora had the best care I
could think of, when we were away - my friend even took a day off from work,
when Cora had been spayed, to look after her. And I'm so glad that Pippin
and Momo are getting on so well (Pippin loves to run in circles around their
big hutch in the garden, while Momo is too lazy these days, perhaps because
he is already over 5). Thank you all very much again indeed!!

So sorry to hear about sweet little Cora, Angie.
I hope things work out well with Pippin - you will soon love him for who he

Thank you so much, Karin! I already do. It's so sweet to see him run around
and motivate Momo to run, too! He is curious, just like Momo, and Momo is
very healthy, so I hope, Pippin is, too...
I bet, you can't wait till the awful quarantaine will be over!! Do you go to
visit Daffy and Eric sometimes? But it's great that so much of the
quarantaine time is over already (if I remember rightly).
All the best to you and your bunnies1

I'm pleased to hear that Pippin has jumped his way into your heart!

No, I haven't been able to visit Daffy and Eric at all, since we're still in
Finland and they're in England. But we're moving in just three weeks, and
then we'll be able to go and see them!!! I can't wait!
Fortunately, Shannon has been to see them, and taken pictures as well, so I
know that they're ok. Still, it will be wonderful to pick them up and cuddle
them again!
Nose scritches to Momo and Pippin,
