Rest in peace Thumper 2010-2016

Post by River on Sat Aug 13, 2016 4:00 pm

Thumper died today. I noticed he didn't eat his food as quickly as usual yesterday, but I brushed it off and said I'd call the vet if he didn't eat the next day, as he usually ate overnight anyways. He was gone by the next time I'd checked on him.
It could be old age. He was unneutered and wasn't from a good breeder, which per usual, shortens the life expectancy. I guess we'll never know.
Jan. 2010 - Aug. 2016

I'm guessing Thumper was a rabbit? Isn't 6 years a normal lifespan? I know rabbits can live up to 12 years, but a for pet store type rabbit 6 years is normal, right? I'm sorry for your loss Sad, rest in peace, Thumper.

I'm so sorry you lost Thumper. Six years is a good life for a rabbit, though. At least, as far as I've heard.

It is a good life, yes. I really didn't see this coming though. Just two days ago he was throwing his bowl around the house, being the pain he always was. I'm gonna miss him terribly.

Oh, you have my condolences! Rabbits sure are special.

I had one pet rabbit in my entire life. He lived from 1995 to 2003. Just two days ago, I watched some film that I took of him at the end of his life. I wish I hadn't, super depressing!

Whilst it's always sad when a pet dies unexpectedly - I try to see it as a good thing, as they likely died quickly and without days/weeks/months of suffering.

I'm very sorry for your loss though Sad he looks like a very sweet rabbit. Rest in peace old boy.
