Sadly, this morning Boy Rabbit rejoined his testicles in that great endless clover field in the sky. He'd not been well for a couple of weeks but he started a serious decline yesterday and this morning I found him barely breathing in the middle of the cage. I brought him to the vet immediately and we decided that even though I detest the idea of putting animals to sleep (on the basis that were *I* that animal I'd damned sure have something to say on the matter) the only alternative was to let him die a slow, painful natural death. He was a good little friend, I'll miss him.

Edit: Also, I lost my fucking phone.

:(. I am going to miss that friendly little fellow. I wish I had given him more hugs before I went back home to visit my family. Sorry I wasn't there with you.

Sorry to hear that.

You do realise that we do put humans to sleep? Doctors "relieve the pain" of cancer sufferers by giving you morphine. Eventually, they give you so much pain relief it kills you.

a fun thought, but entirely untrue.

I'm SO sorry, it's always hard to lose a pet (friend). This is the part where I say something empty that's meant to be comforting, but since I got nothin' and nothing would really help anyway, know that I'm sorry for you.
