Today was so very, very long. And short. And just awful and dreadful.
Mum went to check on our rabbits about 11am and found out that Dominic had passed away some time last night . Mum just reached in to pick him up and he was stiff. It took me ages to go out and even look at him, honestly.
We don’t know what caused him to pass away – he did have several health issues that, whilst we were managing them, were incurable. The medication that he was on was bad long-term, but apparently had no alternative. He was also almost seven years old. Some suggestions have been some kind of virus or infection, his health issues catching up with him… and most likely manifested in the form of a heart-attack.
Dominic was a Mother’s Day present to my Mum more than six years ago. I’m just heartbroken and feel like I’ve been suckerpunched. He’s been with us so long and was still so happy, even with his problems.
I don’t have a photograph on this computer, but I’ll get one tomorrow. Poor little man.
There was going to more, but I’ve made myself sad, so I’m going to take my wheat-bag-sheep and curl up in bed. Give all your pets a big cuddle for me.
