Lady put down

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 12, 2011, 7:41 AM
Yesterday I had to put my rabbit down. She had a huge tumor and even though she hadn’t lost any of her feisty energy she was clearly in pain. So, after consulting my vet, I decided to end her life now that the pain was still bearable. it would’ve been cruel to let her suffer any more, out of sentiment. But even worse than making that horrible life/death decision I find looking at my other little one. We bought them (bro and sis) together when they were just 10 weeks old and they haven’t been separated from each other for more than 12 hours in their entire lives. My other rabbit is very restless and clearly confused why his girl/twin/life-partner isn’t around.

I didn’t know her death would have such impact on me. It’s an almost physical feeling of loss. I was just 10 years old last time any of my pets died. The pets in question where another rabbit pair to whom we used to refer as the ‘grumpy lesbian couple’, because.. well, they were a grumpy lesbian couple. They humped each other all the time and attacked any human that came near them. When they were 3 years old a fox killed them both. I was sad, but also realized it was kinda beautiful they died together. In my opinion, rabbits need only three elements to make their life complete:

1) Food/water 2) A relatively clean place to stay 3) A partner.

That’s why I can’t stand seeing Didi (the rabbit that's left behind) alone. I want him to eventually die of old age, not of loneliness. So I have to figure out a solution for this. My uncle has a farm and owns quite a few rabbits. I hope he has an old one who is compatible with ours.

Btw, I’m not an overly sentimental pet owner. I don’t make illusions that my rabbits appriciate it if I pet them or that they care for me in any way. That’s okay. I don’t have pet to receive love. I own them because I like having living animals around. I like taking care of them. Their uncomplicated presence puts me at ease. (Plus I think rabbits are incredibly cute and hilarious animals.).

In summary, it was hard saying goodbye to my lady (her name was Doortje). Everything will be fine though. Death isn’t a nice part of life, but it is an essential element of it.

Cheers,

Eva

My name is Eva. I'm a happy person. Someone who has a lot of deep (and sometimes irrelevant) thoughts and I love to express myself in as many creative ways as possible. I'm very interested in the world as a whole, but I also love to watch how people live and interact and then try to distinguish differences and similarities. I may not be the most charismatic or spontaneous person in the world, but I just try to treat everyone with respect and interest.

Thanks Dani! O god, it's been ages since I've talked to you, such a shame! You know what, shall I give you my email address, maybe we can send each other a mail every now and then? Because I don't hang on dA as much as I used to, but I really enjoy talking to you.

Think about it, I hope everything is fine on your side of the ocean.

Eva!

Yes I agree, email would be more convenient. I'm at dani.trudeau@hotmail.com

Yeah DA isn't my normal place to hang anymore, too much to do. But now that I'm opening little commissions I'll be on here a little more, but probably only to check messages then run off again. Life is busy, just the way I like it.
So how's the school experience going? :)
