It has now been nearly a month since little Bubbles left us & Rumble is missing her dearly. In the first week of her passing Rumble’s allergy became worse, he barely ate anything & he was very depressed. This has all been brought on by the stress of her death & Rumble for the first time in 5 years is on his own. He isn’t totally on his own as he has the other bunnies in the shed but it is the close companionship that he is missing. I have been in the process of finding him another female but due to time wasters this is taking a lot longer than anticipated. So to keep him ticking over & in good spirits he has had a lot more attention than normal & he has been allowed to roam around the garden out of his pen more frequently. My aim is to keep him interested in things & eating enough. As long as I keep him like this it should stop him going into the ‘giving up phase’, which I have seen bunnies do frequently on the loss of their partner. Prevention is better than cure on this one otherwise you have quite the battle on your hands.
