Bebe eating a plum on Vimeo
So Bebe's been having a tough year. She was about 8 or 9 years old and her health has been on the decline; with eye infections to pooping. This past two weeks has been the worse as her eye infection took a turn for the worse, she stopped eating her rabbit pellets, stopped using her litter box, and just lost weight. During Thanksgiving, her eyes would bulge and it seems like she knew death was knocking on her door. We gave her a bath in her rear end today and her shortness of breath was evident. After the bath, her body was completely limp. Could barely sit up straight. I rushed her to the vet, knowing that the inevitable was to come. He said she probably has pneumonia and that with her age, her health will continue to decline. He said he can do some x-rays and give her some meds but it is unlikely to help since she will become dependent on the meds. The only reasonable thing to do was to put her to sleep. It was tough. She's my first and only pet. I balled like a baby.

She's lived a long and full life. She's in bunny heaven now, screwing around like she always wanted to, and enjoying all the food she can eat. I'm quite devastated but what can you do.

It sure was a surprise to come home to this. Tomorrow is my flight to Hong Kong.

I really believed she was immortal.
