RIP Jack

A visit to vet and the diagnosis wasn’t good for Jack. The seven year-old English rabbit in all likelihood he had smashed his head pretty bad. There were no broken bones but the bulging eyes, partial blindness and paraplegia were all symptoms of a severe brain haemorrhage.

The neighbour warned that a fox had recently dug up a chicken they’d buried, so I dug down about 2 feet and after filling the hole put the hutch on top. A little unconventional for a headstone, but better than finding a chewed up carcass on the lawn.

Grindling #1 one cried all the way home and sobbed for most of the evening. Grindling #2 broke in to tears at bed time when he realised bunny wasn’t coming back.
