Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. I feel like I knew him through your updates and pictures, and had grown quite fond of him myself as a result. I'm sure you will miss him - and I'm well aware that the timing must feel pretty rough given what is happening with Ailz's father as well. I know Tosh had a great life with you, though, and I hope you'll feel able to do the same for another rabbit soon.
We still have two rabbits. They're brothers and hate one another. Tolkien lives in the yard and is bold and comparatively friendly. Trig (who was Tosh's companion) lives in an upstairs bedroom, has never bonded with us and is a complete coward.
It would be nice if we could get them to live together in the yard, but I don't think that will work...
Golly, I remember when you got Tosh. I always enjoyed hearing about him - a larger-than-life bunny. RIP.
Yes, it doesn't seem that long since he was a baby.
I'm really sorry to read this, Tony. It doesn't matter what sort of furry companion we have. When they go we miss them. 7 is a ripe old age for a house bunny. But still...I'm sorry.
Is there any way you could divide your yard to have two bunny habitats?
Dividing the yard would be possible. Another possibility is that we re-home Trig.
It's sad that they run on different life clocks than we do.
But he's had seven years. In the wild he'd have been lucky to have lasted one.
Also, I reckonthey live almost entirely in the present. Time has no meaning for them.
I'm so sorry. I hope you can re-home Trig.
Thanks. We'll see how it goes. We may try and persuade Trig to live in peace and harmony with his brother, but that will involve a bigger input of time and energy than we can spare right now.
Not a bad innings (to use a cricketing term)
Goodbye, Tosh. I am glad you were part of a family, and my condolences to them on your loss.
RIP, Tosh. And I hope something works out with the other two. We have two female angora rabbits in the house right now (in addition to our whole colony of other rabbits in the barn)... We got the second one to be a companion for the first, but so far they end up fighting if they are put together -- unless it's in the back of the car, going for a ride. (In that case they snuggle together for comfort and protection.)
People say rabbits are sociable animals, but I've not seen it. Put two of the same gender together and they'll fight for dominance. Tolkien- who lives on his own in the backyard- seems perfectly happy with his own company.
Loss of a pet-friend. So sad. I know how you feel.
Sorry to hear about Tosh. He had a good life. Maybe one less rabbit in the house will change Trig for the better.
We need to try and get Trig to be less afraid of us.
