sunday screams
Hi there…

Appreciate the last reply Doc ead ;)

Had a wicked weekend.. Doing loads of things one shouldn’t do but yesterday something happened which although not a huge issue affected me…

Was upstairs tryna relax after some earbal remedy, just got out of the Jacuzzi bath, things were quit and the afternoon was sleepy. Lay on my bed and counted the spot lights slowly drifting into bliss…

HIGH PITCHED SCREAMS from something that wasn’t human… I jumped up and looked around, it was awful… something bad is happening… I pulled on my Nike pants but they these funny gym ones and they stuck to my feet so there was a bit of a delay…

More SCREAMS… I ran to the door… Max was pantin and wantin to go check stuff out… I grabbed him by all his loose skin and pushed him across the floor… he slid a few meters, enough to let me get out…

Down the driveway into my neighbors… a sausage dog… small and female… standin starin into the bush and growlin… in the bush, a white bundle of fur… my neighbors bunny got nawled by what seemed to be an innocent jovial sausage dog…

The fur was still breathin… I chased the little dog away, the fur opened it’s eyes, we saw each other and I felt it dyin inside I it’s little leg was chewed up and could swing 360 degrees, it was a shyte state of affairs… what to do… phone the neighbor… shes not answerin, this guys not going to make it, what to do, get a box and take him to the vet… I looked at mr bunny and said I’d be back and so sorry for everythin that has happened to him… got the box and came back…

Mr bunny died whilst I was away… I was sad cause I have issues with bunnies and they are a symbol that means something positive… they always helped me out… look at that dude in Alice…

Anyways… today is hell… my hell left and now I didn’t feel anything now a bunny died and my world feels empty…

All alone…

Cheers
Dude

Dude,
As ever, you reveal what a very nice and sensitive bloke you actually are. ( also, with a significant talent for writing !)
Sorry to hear about the fur --- it's always sad, to any intelligent being, when an innocent form of life suffers unnecessarily. Part of your reaction could be one that's actually quite common ( among us reasonably intelligent life forms ) --- you have recently faced on very distressing situation, losing your pal. Sometimes, though we're coping apparently reasonably well with such a loss, we're still much more vulnerable than usual to react severely to other losses, even in another species. I've seen, for instance, someone who seemed to cope well with a death in the family, and then when, a week later, the budgie died, they became deeply distressed. Keep working on it. Surely the rabit appreciated your care, and there may be other rabbits in your life, to come.
