Formally Know as Bunny Patch's Splash, has a touching tale to tell.
It was a cold, Windy, Snowy February Night ( Feb 2, 2013 ), I went to go feed the bunnies. Splash didn't come to eat. I opened the nest box to see if she was alright. She was huddled over in the corner shaking. I knew something was wrong. I asked my mom to hold her in the car while I finished feeding the rest of the bunnies. We brought her inside and tried to give her food and water, she would not take it. We tried to give her water through a syringe, it just ran out of her mouth. We didn't think she was going to make it.
I laid with her, an tried to keep her warm but she was just getting colder. She started to have seizures and looked like she was doing the death roll. This went on for more than two hours. She went in and out of consciousness. She just laid there with her head bent back and her body stiff and cold. Her heart continued to beat though her breathing was shallow. Out of desperation and worry I gathered her in my arms and held her close to my heart. I just laid there and prayed. It seemed like hours.
of a sudden she kicked her back legs on me, I tried to sit her up , to my
surprise she could hold her body up!!, but the battle wasn't over yet. I called for my mom and I told her the great news. She couldn't believe it. The next step was to get food and water into her frail little body. We put her into a small box with some bedding. She still stayed up. All of a sudden she made a attempt to chew. Slowly but steadily her strength increase until she began to eat on her own. SHE WAS EATING!
Then we gave her water, she began to drink and her eyes got brighter. By then it was almost midnight and she had almost completely recovered. Bunny Patch Rabbitry and Splash were blessed by an angel last night.
Now we have changed her name to Bunny Patch's Second Chance..
Bunny Patch's Second chance had another seizures, she didn't make it threw this one. She passed away 4-9-13, and will be missed greatly. She is now in no pain and is hopping around in Bunny Heaven waiting for me when the time comes.
Her best friend Bluebell that lived with her is missing her greatly too.
