      3 yrs ago my 26 yr. old son bought a pet boy baby bunny. I took him to the pet store for supplies and fell in love with the bunnies sister.

      I ended up with both bunnies, my little girl bun, Chloe died on New Years day... was a 4 hour long process as my fiance lost his job and I am on disability we could not put her down and don’t know if we would any way. She has had close calls b efore.

      2nd the boy, Cocoa was horrified. He looked for her everywhere for days, stopped eating and drinking water (can cause their GI system to stop )  so... we found a cute little girl bun, Joey.... she is the SWEETEST thing. loves to be held, gives kisses when asked !   just precious.
      Cocoa has taken to her... she is not fixed yet so we keep them separated through a baby gate, they are free range house bunnies...

      My problem is I feel guilty for loving her and I feel like I am not being a good “mommy” to her for holdling back.  

      I play guitar for them.. they love it. and I play with her she actually likes to hop on my back and I giver her piggy back rides.... I know I sound weird but...

      How do I get over the feeling of guilt??

        • I have a new kitty and I still feel guilty for that, but eventually the guilt will get less and less. You still love your other pets that have passed, just think of It as giving love to new pets who need your love.heart

        • I can say that rabbits are fragile beings no matter how old they are. My oldest friend lost a lop-eared one who had a heart attack when one of her cats knocked over the kitty condo he happened to be sitting near. He died in her lap and she was devastated. She purchased a chinchilla rabbit who didn’t make it out of anesthesia when she went to get her spayed. I lost the only bunny rabbit I ever had on an Easter Sunday when I was a teenager, and vowed never to get another baby one, which I have so far stuck to.  

          Just remember how many different pets are out there willing to give you their unconditional love (which is the best love, by far), if you‘re willing to let them in your heart. They may even save your life like that German Shepherd in Alaska who saved his human companion from a house fire by going out and finding a state trooper who just happened to be driving a few blocks away. Never let the fear of death keep you from loving.

        • Many on Fab 40 know the story of Fred & Bella our two newest kitties thanks to Melissa. I have never felt guilty for taking them in soon after Trixy died in Nov. of 09. She was our 14 year old kitty in case you did not know. We still miss Trixy terribly but Fred & Bella really needed a home and I knew they would have a fantastic life here with us like Trixy did. Bella was living outside and Fred was at our vets office. Of course you miss Chloe but you also gave Joey and wonderful home and I would look at it that way.happy

        • Since I posted and heard from you fab ladies, I have been feeling much better. While I still find it difficult to look at some of Chloe’s pictures and toys I have been more open with little girl Joey, thank you so much.
          I wanted to come on this page for months but couldn’t do it till now... this really did help.
          Once again FAB 40 ladies are a WONDERFUL blessing!

        • Bunnies are great pet.  They are quiet.  They are happy.  They are soft.  They are gentle.  They have personalities.  Their licks are soft and warm.  I don’t see how you cannot fall in love.  Why feel guilty?  It only shows that you are a very loving, warm hearted person.  Give yourself a break.  Do a bunny hop now.
