Oh that's just great, I have returned from work just to find our bunny lifeless on the floor.
Now you might thing 'Oh, a bunny', but ... Well, it all started when our landlord said we can't have dogs. Soo we got a bunny, 'cause why not - he thought it's going to be in the cage and we had a pet! And we have always let her run around the apartment, taught her not to eat cables and everything, that little thing has become part of our lives. And about 4 months ago, she got some sort of infection and big pockets with mucus started forming around it - something we humans usually don't have to be afraid of, just inflammation, but for bunnies it can be quite lethal as they can't protect themselves from the infection getting into their bloodstream and pockets eventually forming around their vital organs.
After 3 months of fighting infection, 2 operations, the little bugger just fought trough all that, she was lively, always hopping around, the all the three vets astounded that she's not only still alive, but also very curious, that she ate pretty much everything (right after the second operation, when narcosis didn't even wear off, she was lumping with the single leg that she somehow managed to get under control directly towards our kitchen. That was after the vet told us that we'll have to feed her manually for a few days.)
And when she survived trough all that, antibiotics have damaged her stomach. Again, vet wasn't very optimistic, the bunny's had diarrhea, but ... She has toughen that up as well, and now she has finally started gaining weight again. And all that just so I can find her dead on the floor, even tho in the morning she seemed perfectly fine.
