Don’t hold yourself responsible for this – you were trying to do the right thing.

Thats horrible.. I’m so sorry! I would feel terrible too but honestly, don’t beat yourself up too much about it. Look at it this way, you still saved one.

I would be piiiiiiised at my mom though if she did that :/

Awww, I’m sorry that happened to you! Really don’t feel guilty about it, you did the best you could do. If you’re worried about the other baby bunny, though maybe you could take it to an animal rescue?

That’s sad. When I was younger, we had dogs that went crazy and killed some kittens we had rescued (someone left them in a paper bag on the side of the road). The kittens were in the basement and we had brought the dogs in because it was practically a blizzard and put a gate up in the basement doorway, but they just went crazy! No one could stop them. My mom has never got over that.

I hope the other bunny makes it. If s/he does then that’s one life you made a difference in and you should be proud of that.

Oh, I’m so sorry! (hugs)

FH & I almost got into a fight last night because he wanted to shoot a tiny mouse that was in our backyard (he called it a “huge rat”– BS) and I begged him not to. First off, I don’t want to hear a gun go off and know it killed some helpless creature, and secondly, we don’t live in the country where its ok to shoot a gun in your back yard– we live in a city.

Anyway, he didn’t shoot it but was really ticked off that I wouldn’t let him.

Needless to say, I totally understand your desire to protect those little creatures, and it wasn’t your fault. Are you planning on speaking with your mom or will it do any good?

I’m so sorry, LB. I know how hard it is knowing an animal suffered over something stupid and careless. Fiance recently (like last weekend) killed our turtle. Winston’s (the turtle) tank needed to be cleaned so Fiance took it out, went about his day & forgot about turtle (I was not home so did not know). But because it was over 105 outside in direct sunlight, Winston died. I was SUPER PISSED…that poor little guy DID NOT deserve to die that way. So I know what you mean when you say had it been natural it would have been different.

Kudos to you for saving the bunnies in the first place. You helped them knowing it was the right thing to do. You left them in the care of someone whom you thought would do right by them & care for them. Do not beat yourself up over this, it is not your fault! Big hugs to you & I hope your other bunny baby is doing well πŸ™‚

I think one is the same as two. Its not like you have to spend a whole lot of time with a bunny or take them on walks or anything (like you do with a dog), so if you’re going to make the room to keep the one bunny (with a cage and all that), and it would make you feel better to get the bunny a sibling, go for it. You’re so sweet to go so out of your way for the bunny.
